I really enjoyed this book. I love fairy tale re-tellings especially ones about Beauty and the Beast. I like this books because the "beast" isn't an animal but instead a wraith who did not do anything wrong in his life but was a kind of causality for the protection of his fellow townspeople. To hear his story makes you sympathize with him and grow to care for him. I also loved reading about how Jenna's feelings for the Wraith (whose name is Seth) changed and she grew to love him. The ending was perfect for me as well. The magical elements of the golden blade, wizards and the wraith make this story original. I just wished it was longer!!
