Fifty Shades YA Boys: The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Long

Today is the last day for Fifty Shades of YA Boys. It was fun having these wonderful and sexy boys stop by. Jack of the Forest is a guardian who loves to protect his people. He sounds like another swoon-worthy guy who may be a little troubled. Jack stars in the upcoming The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Francis Long. This novel will be released on August 16, 2012. Want to know what we thought of this book? Read Kayla’s early review here.

Thanks to the wonderful people at Penguin/Dial, one lucky winner will win a copy of The Treachery of Beautiful Things.

Author Bio:

A lifelong fan of fantasy, romance, and ancient mysteries, Ruth Frances Long studied English Literature, History of Religions, and Celtic Civilization in college and now works in a specialized library of rare and unusual books. She lives in County Wicklow, Ireland. The Treachery of Beautiful Things is her first novel for teens.

They call me Jack of the Forest now. I’m a guardian, one of many. Our faces are the same.

I am not a creature of many words. Night time steals even my thoughts and the sun’s cycle governs my moods and feelings. Sometimes my instincts are all I can rely on.

There are many things I’m not allowed or that I’m unable to tell you. I’m a servant, some might say a slave. I certainly would. When you live and die at the whim of another, what else is there to call yourself?

This is not to say my life is without wonder, or beauty. I live in the Realm and that is a place of both wonder and beauty beyond anything the mortal world can offer. It is the place from which dreams, stories, myths and legends come. And I am its guardian. It’s part of me, part of my soul, the forest in which I live, where I have my being, where I care for the forest fae and they care for me. Somewhat. You can never truly trust the fae. I’ve learnt that to my peril, all down through the long years.

Not even the one who is the closest thing to a friend I have. Not even Puck.

When Puck brought word to me of a girl in the forest, a girl on a quest with a heart so pure it woke the oldest magic in the Realm, what could I do but try to help. I had to get her safe beyond our borders, before the Queen or the King discovered she had wandered in the Realm.

But it all went horribly wrong.

Fill in the Blanks:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Still loved by my people.

I WISH I COULD STOP: Hurting the people I love and obeying those I hate. But my heart is not my own.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: A lost cause. Innocence. A true heart.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: There is no good time for me.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: At night.

I’D REALLY RATHER: Be free to follow my own path and do as I will.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Remember who I am.

KILL / FRAK / MARRY:

1. Taylor Swift – Marry – I could listen to her enchanting voice for the rest of my life, and her songs make me feel things long forgotten. Sometimes I wonder if she can sneak a peek into people’s hearts.

2. Megan Fox – Kill – really not my type. Sorry Megan. I’ll make it quick and relatively painless.

3. Jessica Alba – Frak – a woman to admire and love. If I hadn’t already committed to Taylor… Such a difficult choice to make.

About this Book:

A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction.

The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she’s lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack’s help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she’s faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice–and not just her own.
