I m going to be bluntly #honest The prologue was really long and boring So I ve summed it up into 5 #The prologue was really long and boring So I ve summed it up into 5 steps 1 This good guy got a sword Divine Grace (Divine Creek Ranch, from this bad guy 2 He went crazy 3 He killed a lot of people including his wife 4 Because he went crazy his son is deformed So he went back and killed the bad guy and busted up the sword into twelve pieces 5 Collin and Glory are bestriends and they got bored one day and decided to go play in the woods even though the were told not to and the ran into a Donestre It s a lion head on a man s body like a Minotaur but with a lion Any ways Collin Kept fights the Done thing and stabbed it in the eye Then they went home with a broken knife and his daddy got really mad at him and won t let him back in until heinds his dagger So now he lives in the Glory s Pantry The End Of the prologue Enjoy your story Ever since I was a child I ve been ascinated by airy tales and over the past several years by Camp Tiger fairy tale adaptations One of theairy tales that I especially love is Beauty and the Beast and I m always on the lookout or good adaptations of that classic tale of true love blossoming despite the seeming repulsiveness of one of the characters the emphasis on going beyond looks and the point that beauty lies within below the surfaceAnn Hunter s The Subtle Beauty is a YA adaptation of Beauty and the Beast and begins with a rather lengthy prologue in which a none too wealthy baron Xander whose pregnant wife Aowyn is a Celtic princess realizes that their son will be born a prince And that Xander has virtually no lands to pass on Xander takes the help of a warlock who gives him a lethal and magical sword which rapidly ills Xander with evil greed hatred and a complete disregard The abbots house for life Xander goes on a rampage annexes much of the kingdom and isinally stopped by the High King Balthazaar In the process though Xander loses a lot his humanity Aowyn even in a way his son Eoghan who is born deformed cursedThe prologue over the story moves to Princess Glory the gorgeous year old daughter of High King Balthazaar who has seven daughters none of them particularly likeable Glory who is in with the royal The Eagle Of The Ninth falconer Colin her childhood sweetheart isurious when her Storm Kings (Song of the Aura, father announces her betrothal sight unseen to Eoghan Glory tries to elope with Colin and ends up instead being taken to Blackthorn Keep theorbidding black castle that is home to Eoghan whom she does not see and is guarded by a magnificent gryphon Meanwhile Colin sets out to search or and rescue his princess so that they may have their Happily Ever After And Glory retting and Faith in the Fog of War fuming in Blackthorninds herself increasingly disgusted with the gryphon who spares no opportunity to chide her or her stupidity and vanityWhat I liked about The Subtle Beauty was the interesting twist on the concept of the beastly exterior concealing an inner beauty because here the trope is also inverted the beauty while outwardly lovely is too vain and self righteous and absorbed in herself to see beyond It becomes therefore a tale of two transformations not one and each enabled by the love of the other I did wish however that the interactions between Glory and the gryphon had been slightly prolonged allowing their relationship time and space to develop Colin s meanderings on his way to rescue Glory on the other hand I could have done without There s meanderings on his way to rescue Glory on the other hand I could have done without There other things that I didn t like much Glory Bodice Rippers for instance isn t a likeable enough heroineor me a girl who after she s become a better person calls her sister a gluttonous swine is hardly my idea of a heroine really Also the language is at times jarringly inconsistent While mos.
