Although this was a good book that I enjoyed immensely, I really can't give it more that three stars. It was a nice story, but it could have been so much better.

The story is a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast taking place during the early part of the twentieth century. I like the combination of historical novel and fantasy, but I would have liked more! It seemed like the book was really rushed near the end. My feeling was the author just wanted to be done with it.

Having said that, I still recommend the book to those who like historical fantasy pieces. Mercedes Lackey is a good story teller, and once you get started reading, you won't want to put it down!
