Wolf’s Beautiful Beast (The Untold Stories #3) by Suzanna Lynn

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by Lynn and it just keeps getting better and better. Lynn knows how to draw in readers and keep them there.

Lycus is also known as the big bad wolf. Except he’s not bad. He’s just misunderstood and just a boy. He’s not evil and so far he has saved many lives. Including Red’s. The quote I chose for Lycus is: “Thank you for your care and hospitality.”

Arabella is the princess they’ve locked away because she is cursed. She is a girl trapped in a dragon’s body. When Lycus promises to help her she insists that he does. The quote I chose for Arabella is: “No! It’s not supposed to happen this way. Why did you get in the way?”

Highly recommended for YA Fantasy lovers.

This book was great! I loved the interactions of Humans and Jinn and the pure magic in this book. I loved that the main character was a young adult and a boy’s point of view. If you love young adult, magic, and mystery with a great story line, this book is great for all ages.

This is a fun, clean YA read that I would recommend to any 8th grader and up.

The author pulls you in right away with her very likable, relatable characters, and the imaginative world of the Jinn realm. You are drawn into the life of Liam and his uncanny ability to constantly get hurt. She keeps you reading to find out why everything is happening. The unexpected twists surprise you too! Who can he trust? Who is telling him the truth?

I truly hope that she writes more about this world and continues the story of Liam and Kenna!

I definitely recommend Granted to anyone that’s looking for a good fantasy read!

Red’s Tangled Tale: Captain Hook and Red Riding Hood discover the Big Bad Wolf, and Rapunzel too! (The Untold Stories #2) by Suzanna Lynn

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. It won’t be my last as I’ve fallen for this series. Lynn knows how to turn our normal fairytales into another world.

Little Red Riding Hood has a name and it’s not Red. Her name is Rose and she isn’t out hunting just one wolf. She’s hunting wolves as in more than one because they killed her family. She runs into James again although this time he’s got a hook for a hand. Join them on they’re journeys. The quote I chose for Rose is: “Yes, you are a good man, James. You’re a good man who did some very foolish things and was manipulated by an evil witch. One act of idiocy doesn’t set you for life as an evil man.”

Highly recommended for YA Fantasy lovers.

Granted: Curse of the Emerald Jinn takes us into the life of Liam. Liam’s life is just one incident of being bullied after another. And if that isn’t enough, if he isn’t being bullied, then he has the worst luck. Liam believes his life will always be this way and that he cannot do anything to escape his bad luck and torment. Until, one day, he discovers the Jinn. He then goes on an adventure that turns his life upside down and changes everything he thought he knew about himself. I enjoyed reading this fun adventure.

This was a fun and magical young adult book. I really enjoyed that the main character was a boy and a shy boy that doesn’t fit in. The authors portrayal of the character and the world around him really creates the scene.

Liam is a 16 year old boy. He has a special gift. He can see colours around people but only when they are up to no good. As much as he tries to stay away from trouble it always seems to be attracted to him.

Through this story he has his life saved by an unlikely person, he makes an enemy and finds a strange shell on a school field trip. What the shell is and what it means is one mystery that gets unravelled and leads Liam into some dangerous situations.

I was excited to read this as in the description it stated that fans of Artemis Fowl would enjoy it. When I was younger, I loved Artemis Fowl, in fact, I still have the books so having the chance to find something that was just as gold as that made me super duper happy. I’ve got to say that Huffmire has really written something brilliant here that I think both young people and adults will enjoy. It is fun, it is magical, and it has some wonderful characters.
Liam is one of these wonderful characters and he has a simple code that he lives by; keep a very low profile – head down and don’t draw attention to yourself – stay away from the colours, the bright and blinding colours, and absolutely don’t make contact with Kenna Berlin. This code happens to be in answer to some very weird and wonderful things that happen to Liam, like for example, seeing colourful shadows that no one else can.
Of course, this story wouldn’t be a story if Liam’s code didn’t get a little blurred around the edges, and it does, it really does. One day changes it all, Kenna becomes impossible to ignore, keeping his head down becomes difficult with the most popular guy at school out to get him, and a shell that he happened to find is making the colours way brighter.
I got to say that I loved reading this and Huffmire really did capture all the elements I thought were brilliant in Artemis Fowl. Huffmire is a talented writer and I look forward to reading more of her work, she really brings magic into her work.

Granted: Curse of the Emerald Jinn by Rachel Huffmire was a really good read! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel, and it was a tale unlike any I’ve read before. I won’t lie though. It took me several chapters before I fully became enthralled in this novel. I was pretty confused at the beginning, what with the colors and the random events that happened (not so random in the long scheme of things) and it felt like it wasn’t really explained well. But it did all get explained later. I enjoyed this novel a lot more than I expected to, which was pretty surprising considering I didn’t like it very much at the beginning. This was a very interesting read and I can’t wait to read more from the author in the future!

YA Fantasy

I love the YA genre. It is like there are few rules for the writer to follow. This gives the author creative freedom. The plot-line really moved along. I was drawn into the story from the first page until the last page. The characters are fun and unique. This story is about Liam. Liam is special because he can see colors. The colors are present when people and or things are messing with him. He has gotten himself in a little bit of trouble with a jock who is now his enemy. Kenna has helped Liam but is there more. What are the colors telling him? I highly recommend reading this book to find out about Liam, the colors, the enemy, and Kenna.
