This is one of the best Beauty and the beast retellings out there. I know a lot of people could disagree with me, but without a doubt, I loved this book way more than A Court of Thorns and Roses. Cruel Beauty is a very creative and original (as original as a retelling can be) story that adds a little mix of Greek Mythology. The romance is my favorite part of the book, but there is so much more than just that. There’s mystery and suspense. The protagonist is a strong, witty, fierce woman. Wrapped up with all the intrigue and amazing world-building, it makes up for one amazing, edge-of-your-sit, intense read. I loved every second of it.
This book is definitely a must-read. Unique writing, absolutely addicting characters and immersing story. I found myself relating to Ari in more than one occasion. He’s such a real character, you can’t help but relate to some of his characteristics. I loved how he was kinda reserved and a bit odd. I don’t know how the author did it, but he has a very distinct voice- which I love in characters.
