    Very interesting story! A quick read! Definitely seems Young Adult (the POV is a 17 year old girl) except for one scene in the book, so I'm unsure of what the target audience is. A mature older teen or young 20s would enjoy this book a lot. ...

    Definitely a book for youth, the holes in the logic are big and needs a naive reader to ignore them. The characters were also a bit fairytale-ish in that they are fairly static--they were either good or they were bad. The main character, Princess Sophia, is the only one who develops as...

    Let me start out by saying this isn't an adult novel. Yes, it was marketed for adults but it's clearly written young adults. While I haven't read to many fantasy during my lifespan, the ones I have read have had detailed descriptions of the landscapes, castles, and creatures. That isn...

    2.5 Stars for me, bumped to 3 Stars for competent writing This is the first novel I've read that was co-authored by James Patterson (and Emily Raymond). Although not stated in the promotional material it appears to possibly be targeting the Young Adult market based on subject matter...

    I did not enjoy this book. It got 2 stars, because the beasts were cool, like the dragon and the Sphinx, and I liked Raphael. However, the rest was kind of crap. There was not enough exposition, so it was muddled as you read. There wasn?t much of an explanation of anything. And chara...

    So I'm 6% in and ... :X we'll see - the prologue is kinda eye-rolling. Like a bad Disney intro. Pretty heavy handed and just ... lots of ?? And then her ... I don't even know. Expository ... whatever of the castle ... not only is that heavy handed but what bothered me more is ...

    It's a cute story. If you're in the mood for a little light fluff, this is a fun read. ...

    This is one of those books that seemed like it might be a good idea? until the author started writing it. The title derives from the way the king, his knights and even the mythical figures Sophia interacts with views the lower classes of the world- as beasts. If you thought that w...

    Read Any Fantasy Classic, But Not This One... Can't believe I powered through and finished. Glad it was short. Nothing makes sense, should be categorized as Young Adult fantasy, as it's written that way. The storyline bounces around, same fairytale that's been told before, except to...

    This book absolutely reads as YA... unfortunately not very good YA. I was disappointed by the lack of character development. The plot implies that the character's growth is what allows certain things to happen, but that growth seems limited to her spending more time in the village beca...

    What the what JP?! This book was terrible!! Cue beautiful princess of an idyllic kingdom who (of course) is benevolent and kind... then she catches a horrible plague-like disease (that is never explained and at the end cured as an afterthought) and dies...then isn't dead, but kidnapped...

    I like a good Patterson book. This was not one. It felt like YA, but it wasn?t and I?ve read much better YA, than this mess. It was insulting to his followers. Man he adds his name to anything it seems. This plot , if you can call it that, was all over the place. I struggled to fin...

    I was looking forward to reading this book, the plot seemed interesting and I have heard good reviews from people. However, I was disappointed. I felt that the story line was very jumpy and the characters fell flat for me. Sophia, is a princess who becomes Queen quicker than expect...

    Characters and character relations were under developed and many questions were left unanswered. Sophia asks Ares why he bothers waging war on them? She offers him all their wealth if he?d leave them be and yet he refuses, never answering the question of why he wants to wage war on s...

    Wow what a crappy book. This book reads like it?s a first draft - the chapters have no meat to them and a lot of ?scenes? really aren?t fully fleshed out. Now I?ve only read one other book by James Patterson (and I really have no idea how much of a part he played in writin...

    I really loved reading this book, I was engrossed by the well written plot. It did however leave so many questions unanswered. I feel like this should be a series and yet more questions should?ve been answered in this first book. I went searching for more, because I wanted more! I wa...

    First, this book is classified as adult fiction, but it could be classified as YA. But that?s not even a significant problem with the book. The characters, the world, and the plot are so underdeveloped. This is the first book where there?s not even one thing that I could appreciate...

    If you go into this expecting a normal JP book then you?ll be disappointed. Almost as if you crossed Outlander and Grimms fairy tales. Reads a bit as a YA but not eye roll YA. A quick read that is unique. ...

    This book was a pretty quick read, and the premise was promising. I am always on the lookout for a stand-alone fantasy read. But the book as a whole fell flat for me. And for what it is, it reads definitely as a YA fantasy. There are some interesting ideas in here, like an alternate...

    I am very pleasantly surprised with this book! I have never read any of Pattersons books, but my grandma has read them all. She is a true fan and read this book in two days. She had the library book for another week so she lent it to me. I am really glad I picked it up! It was a super ...

    Wow this book was bad. I?m a fan of some of James Patterson?s writing especially the Women?s Murder Club series. However he needs to stay in his lane and get out of the fantasy genre. This story makes no sense, nothing is explained, the ending is too cookie cutter, and the main c...

    Sometimes the end is only the beginning. And sometimes what?s real is not the same as what is true. And the impossible? My friends, there is no such thing. I was browsing the ?new book? section at the library today and saw this book. The title and the cover intrigued me. I?v...

    Classified as fantasy, adult, YA, and fiction this one has it all but only if readers are open to the idea as it's not the normal thriller you may have come to enjoy. While it does have thrilling moments it's more about the meaning behind the scenes or so it was with me as I read this...

    I thought this book started off okay at first, but once the real action started, it did one of the things I can?t stand stories like these doing ? the heroine is thrust into an extremely bizarre or unfamiliar situation, and doesn?t do enough to question or discover what?s going...

    The book flap description made the book sound intriguing, but the promise is not fulfilled. No ancient profound secret is unlocked. To me Sophie is a flat character, a self-righteous goody-two-shoes who can make her father the king stop warring against his better judgement, kill monste...

    I loved this book, the fictional monsters were well crafted and Sophia was such an amazing character. I'm also a huge sucker for a earned happy ending. I would recommend this to anyone even slightly curious. ...

    It was a good quick read I liked it. Except for the confusion magical teleportation. Between life and death. It was never really clear on what is going on, especially her skin. The author should have just left it out (magical stuff). ...

    I really enjoyed the writing style in this book (at the beginning), and the overall premise. After completing part one I was excited, as I could see it being one of my possible favorites of the month, but unfortunately the second and third parts did not deliver. I honestly was very...
