Beauty's Kiss by C.S. Johnson is a breathtaking young adult fantasy novel, following a princess named Rose. She is nearing the end of her long quest to get rid of her curse; all she has left to do is kill the fairy who cursed her. If only things were that simple. Someone had tried to kill her father, the king, and now her mother is in prison, and her younger siblings have fled the kingdom, fearing for their well-being. Rose has learned of an increase of illegal magdust (magic dust that is obtained by crushing fairies) trade, and she also finds out about a plan someone had to start a war between her kingdom and another one. With all this on her mind, will Rose be able to rid herself of her curse?

I really loved reading Beauty's Kiss by C.S. Johnson. The book is an absolute joy to read, and will keep the reader fascinated as they follow Rose's adventures. The book is very well written and descriptive. This story has scenes that will cause readers to laugh, gasp, and even cry alongside the characters. I was hooked by the first page, and I never wanted to put the book down. The book is a real page turner, and will keep the reader wanting to know what comes next. This book maintains all the excitement of the first two books, and won't disappoint fans of the series. It is absolutely thrilling from cover to cover. I can't wait to read the next one in the series. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
