Read Beheld (The Kendra Chronicles, #4) Online Free - #1 New York Times bestselling YA author Alex Flinn is back with magical twists on four fairy-tale favorites, each featuring a little help from Kendra, the witch from Beastly, as she searches through cities and centuries for her lost love.
Being a powerful witch, Kendra has survived it all. Since she first beheld James over three hundred years ago, Kendra has tangled with witch hunters and wolves, helped a miller’s daughter spin straw into gold, cowered in London as German bombs fell, and lived through who knows how many shipwrecks. But her powers have limits, and immortality can be lonely. Kendra isn’t ready to stop searching for the warlock she had met centuries ago.
With the help of her magic mirror, Kendra will travel the world to reconnect with her lost love—and, of course, she can’t help but play a hand in a few more stories along the way.
Featuring retellings of favorite fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, East of the Sun and West of the Moon, and The Ugly Duckling, Alex Flinn’s latest young adult novel, Beheld, is fresh fairy-tale fun from beginning to end.

(I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)
This was a YA retelling of 4 fairy tales, all featuring Kendra.
Kendra was an okay character, but I didn’t love her. It was interesting to see the part she played in the other fairy tales in this book though...

Alex Flinn is brilliant. I love the way she always blends a bunch of fairytales into one retelling and how she ties things together and connects them. My only problem with this book is how quickly all the girls fall in love. Even the main character falls in love too fast. I mean, she has a love s...

Why is everyone being so harsh on Alex Flinn lately? It seems like nobody likes any of her newer books, including this one. I still stand by the fact that her worst one was Towering, but I digress.
While this one wasn't perfect, and I do get why people don't like it, I was ge...

This book was not Flinn's best book. I tend to find myself enjoying her modern stories more and getting more attached to those characters for some reason. I think that Alex's Flinn's stories can be predictable, and if the story is ify then I don't find myself loving what I'm reading. The...

2.5 stars. I don't know what to say about this book. It was just so forgettable.
It's certainly an easy read. I blew through this 300-pager in two hours, which could be considered a good thing, I guess.
The issue with this book is that it's all about a romance, and the romance is quite lukewarm....

Well..not quite what I was expecting.
