While at Once Upon A Book Author Signing 2017 I was walking (against my family's wishes, Stacey’s wishes) looking for books while on maternity leave. I was 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and was told not to go into labor before August 14th, thankfully that did not happen. I came across Kyleigh Castronaro table and loved the cover of her books she had displayed. She was telling me about the Twisted Fairy Tales series and how they're your favorite fairy tale retellings with supernatural elements like vampires, witches and werewolves. I had to grab a copy and I was surely glad that I had!
Quill, her chosen name, is the main character of this book. There was a hostile takeover, only the ones that were deemed pure enough were allowed to live in the city, the others that were able to escape, and became the “desecrated”. Quill was now considered to be a desecrated because she escaped the city. She could no longer live under her father’s influence, only thing she regretted was she was not able to take her sister with her. Once on the outside you can become someone new and that's why she chose the name Quill.
I have said in the past that I do not like love triangles, the start to this story was heading in the direction of love triangles; and in one instant that was cut out and it was like yes to all that is holy thank you for not making me have to sit through a love triangle and listening to people whine, “do I want to be with this guy or this guy.” Thank you for taking that off the table. Enough of that rant and actually get to the good part!
Quill goes into the city to find their truck that had been hijacked, there were people with the truck and she uncovered that there was a lot more going on then what she initially knew. She was followed by a man, he tried attacking her, he was caught off guard that she fought back, and mentally fought back. Yes he is a vampire and you learn this later in the book. You learn that he is a beast and she is beauty! ( see where this is going)
I don't want to give to much away, I recommend reading this book. Kyleigh’s telling is captivating draws you in. She weaves the story where it is easy to follow and keeps you turning pages until you realize that you have reached the end of the book.
