Beauty is a woman, but she is like no woman you have ever seen before. She was born of a human mother and a Lizarian father. Her body is scaled and she has a strong blue tail. Because of her unique looks, Beauty has always perceived herself as ugly. Readers follow Beauty on her quest to find the real meaning of beauty and the many life changing experiences she encounters along the way. It takes friendship, love, struggles, and battles for Beauty to finally understand that there is more to beauty than the outer appearance.

In her moving and thoughtful novel, Wilkins introduces the reader to Beauty, a woman who is struggling to accept herself and find the real meaning of beauty in the world. Although this quest claims to be one to find the true meaning of beauty, it ends up being a search for love and self acceptance. Beauty is a remarkable character that is very likeable and easy for women to identify with. Her struggles and search for self love are easily related to by the reader. <i>Beauty</i> is filled with hard circumstances, interesting characters, and just the right amount of encouragement and inspiration.

Leah is an ordinary girl living a normal life when her brother is violently murdered. Searching for answers about his death, Leah is confronted with a pack of ratlike creatures called Dernin. She is rescued by Merion, a mage, who takes her through a portal into a dimension full of fantastical creatures and an epic battle. She must decide if she will fight for the Creator or turn her back and let the Evil One and his minions overtake the land.

This book is full of adventure and fantasy. Peterson creates detailed characters and her descriptions bring the fantastical world of Armageddon to life for the reader. The plot may not be a new one, as it revolves mainly around the struggle of good versus evil, but it is a fresh look into the journey of a heroine that many readers are able to relate to. Chronicles of Armageddon reads like a more mature version of Chronicles of Narnia. I recommend it for fans of fantasy and sci-fi literature.
