If you’re excited about the upcoming Disney film Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, don’t miss Cruel Beauty. The romance of Beauty and the Beast meets the adventure of Graceling in this dazzling fantasy novel about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.

Betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom, Nyx has always known that her fate was to marry him, kill him, and free her people from his tyranny. But on her seventeenth birthday when she moves into his castle high on the kingdom's mountaintop, nothing is what she expected—particularly her charming and beguiling new husband. Nyx knows she must save her homeland at all costs, yet she can't resist the pull of her sworn enemy—who's gotten in her way by stealing her heart.

Awesome Dark Retelling

This Beauty and the Beast retelling was so much darker than I expected. I loved every minute of it. Nyx is a flawed and wonderful character. Her strained relationship with Ignifex makes this story so interesting. I highly recommend this one.

eh

this book was most definitely not my favorite. i was really excited to read it after glancing at the description, but the story was a huge disappointment. the author had so much room to expand the story and she let it go. every time she wanted to create sexual tension she had them fall. it wouldn't be so bad if she didn't use the vocabulary in a garish way. at least look at a dictionary before putting in a word you don't know, this isn't 5th grade english class.

Beauty & the Beast I guess?

Honestly had no idea what was going on in this book. I was so lost and while they end up together in the end I have no clue how that really transpired.
