Review of a Bite's Tale by Veronica Blake
A Cinderella who spends her nights as a wolf. A prince with a taste for blood.
Seventeen year old Cydney struggles against her werewolf nature, trying to keep everyone around her safe. No way will she risk exposing the beast at the prince's ball, no matter how her two cousins try to persuade her. As she attempts to carve out some semblance of a life, Cydney can't forget the boy she loved three summers ago - or what she did to him after losing control.
Turned into a vampire to save his life, the prince refuses to live up to his royal duties. He just wants to find the girl he loved and lost...the werewolf girl who bit him. But his father, the king, commands him to attend a ball where he must choose a wife. Can he find his Cinderella before he's forced to marry another? He doesn't even have her real name, much less a glass slipper.
I re-read A Biter's Tale after it had been on my bookshelf for awhile.
It is the story of two teenagers who met in the summer and did not know each others real names. She does not know he is the prince of the kingdom and his real name is Remy. He does not know who she is and calls her Cinderella, which is a name her little brother, Gavin, calls her. Her name is Cydney Ella. Their mother is dead and they live with their Aunt Mina and their cousins.
It is a light book to read and about teenagers, school, friends and family. Do not let the subject bother the reader.
The chapters are written in first person with some chapters by Cydney and others by Remy.
The story is some what based on Cinderella and her prince and it is a light and sweet romance
I will give it a 4 star rating.
I won A Bite's Tale from the author. The opinions are my own.
