Book Review - A Bite's Tale by Veronica Blade

A Cinderella who spends her nights as a wolf. A prince with a taste for blood. This is more than your average fairy tale.

The Cinderella: Seventeen year old Cydney struggles against her werewolf nature, attempting to keep everyone around her safe. She tries to carve out some semblance of a life, but can’t forget the boy she loved three summers ago — or what she did to him after losing control and shifting. No way will Cydney risk exposing the beast at the prince’s ball, no matter how her two cousins try to persuade her.

The Prince: 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.

My Review  : 9 out of 10

I absolutely loved this short story from Veronica Blade (who also wrote Something Witchy this Way Comes, which I have also read and reviewed and you can find here - Debs' Review of Something Witchy This Way Comes)

What I loved about this story, was the romance element to it.  This Cinderella like story of a couple who meet, have a wonderful summer together not really knowing who the other is.  They are torn apart by an incident that Cydney blames herself for entirely.  Will they be reunited?  I especially enjoyed the werewolf and vampire mix in this story.  

If I had only one wish, I would have loved for this story to have more pages so I could have stayed in the story for a while longer...

This is such a fun romantic story that I would very much recommend to all those of you out there who like a bit of werewolf/vampire romance...

Best wishes
