Alex Flinn - Beheld
#1 ​New York Times bestselling YA author Alex Flinn is back with magical twists on four romantic fairy-tale favorites, each featuring a little help from Kendra, the witch from Beastly, as she searches through cities and centuries for her own lost love. Kendra first beheld James over three hundred years ago. Since then, she’s tangled with witch hunters and wolves, helped a miller’s daughter spin straw into gold, cowered in London as bombs fell, and lived through who knows how many shipwrecks. Being a powerful witch, she has survived it all. But 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 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.

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. Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.

Alex Flinn - Beastly ​- A szörnyszívű
„Szerelmi ​történet ínyenceknek… az örök romantikusok a világ minden részén élvezni fogják” – Anette Curtis Klause, a Vér és csokoládé szerzője. Szörnyeteg vagyok Egy szörnyeteg. Nem farkas vagy medve, gorilla vagy kutya, hanem egy teljesen új faj, ami két lábon jár - egy karmos-agyaras teremtmény, akinek minden testrészét sűrű szőr fedi. Azt hiszed, ez egy tündérmese? Nincs olyan szerencsém. New York Cityben vagyunk. És a jelenről beszélek. Nem baleset ért, és nem valami betegség támadott meg. De örökre ilyen torz maradok, hacsak meg nem sikerül törnöm az átkot. Igen, az átkot, amit az irodalomórámra járó boszorkány bocsátott rám. Hogy miért változtatott szörnyeteggé, aki nappal elrejtőzik, éjszaka pedig az utcákon settenkedik? Elárulom. Elmesélem, milyen voltam Kyle Kingsburyként, olyasvalakiként, aki mindenki lenni szeretne, gazdagon, tökéletes külsővel és tökéletes élettel. Utána elmesélem, hogy váltam tökéletesen... szörnyeteggé. Akarod hallani? Mered hallani?

Alex Flinn - A ​Kiss in Time - Csók, pont jókor
Taliát ​egy átok sújtja… Jack megtöri az átkot. Mondták nekem, hogy óvakodjak attól az átkozott orsótól, de ez annyira elbűvölő volt, annyira hipnotikus… Aznap csak egy kis kalandra vágytam, ezért léptem meg a turistacsoporttól. De találni egy kómában lévő várost, benne egy állati dögösen kinéző, alvó kiscsajjal, na ez nem éppen az volt, amire számítottam. Ugyanott ébredtem, de egy egészen más időben – egy vadidegen csókja ébresztett fel. Én nem azért csókoltam meg, hogy segítsek rajta. Néha csak úgy csókolózik az ember. Nem tudtam, hogy aztán ez fog történni. Most aztán alaposan benne vagyok a pácban, mivel az apám, a király engem okol, hogy romlásba döntöttem az országunkat. Nincs más választásom, mint elszökni innen, méghozzá ezzel a közemberrel! Most aztán jól megszívtam: itt van a nyakamon ez a gügye királykisasszony, plusz a bőröndje, tele az ékszereivel… Az egyetlen jó hír: a szüleim totál ki lesznek kattanva! Képzeld el, hogy párkapcsolati gondjaid vannak. Aztán zárd az ajkad egy kábultan szunyókáló egyénéhez, akiről aztán kiderül, hogy idestova 316 éves az illető. Vajon egy csók átsegíthet mindenen – akár az időn is?
