    "A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright – a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster. You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever – ruined – unless I can break the spell...."

    Felicia The Geeky Blogger says: "Chris Patton did a wonderful job"
    "To describe the book in a single word- trite."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think this book is better suited to an audience who is just discovering fantasy as a genre. The protagonist is a 16 year old boy, so the audience for the book is likely of a similar age.


    What could Alex Flinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I believe the author could have done something... anything interesting. The entire things was trite and predictable. You could easily predict every single character action and reaction the whole way through. I kept waiting for the shoe to drop- and it never did.


    Which character – as performed by Chris Patton – was your favorite?

    Wow, that's a hard question. Chris did a lovely job bringing all of the characters to life. He helped redeem the story in my opinion. I quite enjoyed the Frog Prince though.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I did enjoy the actual 'sessions' when the protagonist had come together and was discussing life with some of the smaller characters. I think those interactions were about the only unique element that was added to the tale.
