    Using simple but evocative language, Arsdale weaves a dark fairy tale with a heroine and a Beast who are neither as simply good or simply evil as such characters in these stories often are. There's a love story (but not with the Beast--this is not a Beauty and the Beast re-telling), but it doesn't r...

    Nečakajte nejaký mega strašidelný horor, z ktorého vám budú vstávať vlasy dupkom. Netvor je zver je niečo ako creepy rozprávka o dobre a zle. Keď má Alys 7 rokov, všetkých dospelých v jej dedine vysajú požieračky duší, Alys a zvyšn?...

    Remember last year's immensely magnificent, where-did-this-book-come-from Uprooted? I knew from the synopsis alone that it was going to be an fantasy of epic proportions but still I was blown away with how goooood it was. This year's breakout fantasy comes in a more subtle albeit still epic...

    3 stars. This review can be split in two: the first half and the second half. The first half is a solid 4 stars. The second half is 2 stars. The first half of this book is a claustrophobic, suspenseful tale of witches in the Middle Ages, with magical realism thrown in. The plotting is a bit slow, bu...

    The Beast Is an Animal is a young-adult fantasy novel written by Peternelle van Arsdale. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The writing is simple and the theme felt fantastically dark like all of the best fairy-tales are. It was engaging, suspenseful, creepy, scary, unfair, with a setting that felt ve...
