Beauty is a physical state that brings pleasure simply from being perceived by the naked eye. Moreover, beauty is also a manifestation of our inner persona. By believing in one’s self, the inner beauty is conceived. Focusing on inner beauty and envisioning one’s desired appearance, a new body emerges—a body exalting one’s true beauty. This is Beauty’s quest.
Beauty is a woman like no other. Born of a human mother and a Lizarian father, her body is scaled and a strong blue tail forms at her back. From the time she is able to comprehend the complexities of life, Beauty perceives herself as ugly.
Through the many experiences she goes through—fierce battles, lifetime friendships, lifechanging trials, and love—Beauty realizes there is more to beauty than the outter appearance alone.
As Beauty embarks on a journey through various worlds in search of the real meaning of beauty, she asks of you to be her company.
Okay, to be honest it took me somewhere between 100-200 pages to really get into this story. I felt like the beginning of this book dragged on a lot and was hard to get into. Once I got passed this, I really did enjoy the rest of the book! There were also a few misspellings and grammatical errors in the book and the author's writing style takes awhile to get used to. I felt like there was so many different things all crammed into one book. I think that this book could have made an awesome series talking about Beauty's journey and development and then the author could have gone into more detail about the different races and the other secondary characters.
I really loved the whole concept of the story. Beauty is not just based on your physical appearance but also on the inside. You have to love yourself and view yourself as beautiful. I know that a lot of women these days are struggling with how they look. They feel like they aren't beautiful because they don't look like models or actresses. Everyone is beautiful! Who chooses what beauty looks like? I really want to thank the author for focusing on this problem because I know a lot of people, myself included, have struggled with feeling beautiful in their lives.
