Book Review – Beaumont & Beasley

Shultz, Kyle Robert, 1&2Nick Beasley is a professional myth buster, disproving conspiracies and scandals involving the so-called magic that’s been lost to history. But when a suspicious case leads to an unfortunate accident, Nick is forced to rethink everything he’s been fighting against and join forces with the feisty daughter of a nefarious noble to undo a famous fairy tale curse.

So, the people of the Afterlands closed their dusty old books, left their great palaces to crumble into ruin, and set off into the future to do more worthwhile things like inventing automobiles and airships.

Book 1: With nods to the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast, The Beast of Talesend manages to set the stage for a larger story, but holds up well in its own right. Witty humor, vivid characters, and a totally unique introduction of fairy tales into an immersive steampunk setting. Nick Beasley and Cordelia Beaumont play off each other beautifully, and have you ready to join them on their adventures.

“This is magic we’re talking about! There’s always another way!”

 

Book 2: Lady Beaumont, Mr. Beasley, and Crispin journey to the prestigious Warrengate Academywhere the revenge plot of an angry ancestor disrupts their exploration of an ancient burial ground. Taking its cues from The Little Mermaid, The Tomb of the Sea Witch is full of twists that will keep even the most avid of fairy tale fans guessing.

“It’s often the way with romances between enchanters. Boy meets girl, boy angers girl, girl turns boy into… insert unpleasant creature here. Tale as old as time.”

 

Designed to be enjoyed by the whole family, the Beaumont and Beasley series is lighthearted, witty, and it’s easy to enjoy a whole book in one sitting. I’d recommend this one to fans of the TV series Once Upon a Time, the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan, and The 10th Kingdom miniseries.
