Synopsis: A beast. An enchantress. An unbreakable curse . . .
When her little sister is taken by the beast of the Forbidden Forest, Larkin does the unthinkable: she goes in after her.
Deep within the sentient woods, Larkin uncovers a secret that puts her in dreadful danger. Worse, now that the beast has had his taste, he’ll never stop hunting her. But the forest has woken something inside Larkin; something that gives her the power to fight back.
Using forbidden magic will get Larkin hanged. Not using it will leave her at the mercy of the beast’s enchantment. But there’s a third option; one that scares her more than anything.
She could fall in love with the beast.
Review: For the most part I really liked this book. The narration was haunting and really fit the mood of the book. The character development was amazingly well done and I really loved the plot and story. The book hooked me right away and it kept me hooked throughout the read.
The only thing that I didn’t like is how slow the book was and how confusing the world building was. The book moved very slowly, and while that fit the mood of the book I was anxious to move on at a faster pace. The world building is also confusing and it left me confused on where I was throughout the book. I also felt the magic system could have been explained better and could have been a bit more developed.
Verdict: I recommend for Beauty and the Beast lovers!
