Praise for Amelia Wilde's King of Shadows trilogy...
"Breathtaking, intense, and scorching hot, KING OF SHADOWS is the modern myth I've been waiting for." –New York Times Bestselling Author Skye Warren
"Summer Queen is a sexy shot of antihero goodness—this is the kinky, delicious retelling of the year!" –Sierra Simone, USA Today bestselling author
“Amelia Wilde has proven once again why she is my mortal enemy—I would kill to have written this dark, sensuous retelling of Persephone’s journey to becoming Queen of the Underworld.” –Kayti McGee, USA Today bestselling author
Dark, modern retelling of Beauty & the Beast
Secret Beast is book one in a new series and is a faithful retelling of the classic Beauty & the Beast, albeit modernized and darker. Leo is a delicious hero with a painful past, and Haley is the perfect person to "heal" him. The hot stuff has some BDSM elements to it, light enough that those who don't enjoy that sort of thing will likely still enjoy it here. I would have liked more interactions between them throughout the book, but even without it and being on the shorter side I really enjoyed how it reminded me of the cartoon movie I loved as a child written for the adult me who loves dark romance books. I am curious to see how things progress in the series following the cliffhanger ending.
The Beauty and the Beast Trilogy is probably one of my top ten series that I have ever read! The plot is amazing and the characters have so much personality. Amelia keeps you guessing the entire book!
Worst rendition of Beaty and the Beast
I love Beauty and the Beast so when I read a comparison to that story I bought this one. This is nothing like it. The plot was awful, slow, and lacking in every aspect. There was no love story it was just a lame sick and twisted story. Total crap. Only gets a one star from me because I can’t go lower!
