Overview

It will take much more than a kiss to rescue this princess.
* * *
The kingdom of Twelve Realms has known war, but under the current high king's rule peace has come. Goodness abounds, but on the eve of High Prince Theiandar's wedding to his beautiful and sweet young bride, Princess Caityn of Taisce, an ancient and forgotten evil brings a new chaos to the realms.

The thief who wields an archaic power is merciless. In secret and under the light of the moon, through the centuries, he has stolen what gives him new life. In return, he transforms comeliness to haggishness and rips everything beautiful from the soul.

The beloved Princess Caityn is left wretched and bankrupt of all the goodness she possessed. Only the purest, deepest, and most compassionate of souls carry the beauty for which the thief longs. But unless Theiandar can unravel the mystery before the fullness of moon, Caityn will be lost to the curse and their love forever hidden in the depths of the thief's dark heart.

I loved this book. Reading it was like going to the ballet to see Swan Lake or Sleeping Beauty. It’s definitely a story I would read to my children, alongside the classic fairy tales (Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and others). Caityn is someone I think most of us can relate to. I think we all feel the way she does at some point in our lives. Her struggle to overcome her lack of inner beauty closely mirrored my own struggle to find meaning in my own life. Thieander is a classic honorable, chivalrous prince. He is passionate about serving his country and keeping his promises to Caityn and his family. He is a fully-developed, real prince charming. The kind that could exist, but that so many little girls grow up to believe is merely imaginary. The Beauty Thief is a wonderful story about what to do when you’ve had a happy childhood, everyone around you loves and supports you, but then something happens that you are entirely unprepared for. Something that only you can remedy, no matter how much your friends and family wish they could fix it for you.
