#1 New York Times bestselling author Alex Flinn is back with magical twists on four fairy-tale favorites, each featuring a little help from Kendra, the witch from Beastly, as she searches through cities and centuries for her lost love.

Now available in paperback and featuring retellings of favorite fairy tales such as "Little Red Riding Hood," "Rumpelstiltskin," "East of the Sun and West of the Moon," and "The Ugly Duckling," Kendra's adventures in Beheld are filled with fresh fairy-tale fun from beginning to end.

Since she first beheld James over three hundred years ago, Kendra has tangled with witch hunters and wolves, helped a miller's daughter spin straw into gold, cowered in London as German bombs fell, and lived through who knows how many shipwrecks.

But her powers have limits, and immortality can be lonely. Kendra isn't ready to stop searching for the warlock she met centuries ago.

With the help of her magic mirror, Kendra will travel the world to reconnect with her lost love--and, of course, she can't help but play a hand in a few more stories along the way.

The story started off great. It was exciting and I could not wait to see if Kendra and her true love were going to end up together. Then the story went on and on about other characters I had not interest in. The female characters kept making really bad decisions. For example if you married a man and he said that you could not see him in the light because her was cursed would you? Your happy and in love. The wife waits till he falls asleep and uses a candle to see his face. While, she is doing this she even refers to the myth of Cupid and Psyche. She already knew what the consequence would be, but did it anyway. I started to lose interest in the book after this, but I kept on reading. By the time I read the last chapter I was still not satisfied. The author should have included more about Kendra.
