Absolutely loved it!

Absolutely loved it! CRUEL BEAUTY is a well-written, fast-paced, and extremely interesting interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. The characters had great chemistry and the mystery was a ton of fun to unravel.

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.

Amazing!!

it’s another version of beauty and the beast, and i honestly love this copy even more than the original that i’ve always heard. There is more to the story and plot with the love triangle. 10/10, highly recommend this read!
