Mini Review: Beauty in the Beast by Christine Danse

Mini Review: Beauty in the Beast by Christine Danse

The only complaint I have about this book: It wasn’t long enough. The stories within a story were awesome and really set the scene (even though I didn’t really know it). The tale of the dragon was very witty and I really liked the Ice Flower story, but my favorite was the new take on a werewolf stemming from Alchemy. Very interesting and unique! The touch of steampunk was pretty cool too! The relationship between Rolph and Tara moved a bit […]

The last 20% or so made up for the rest. When […]

The intro was heart-wrenching for me, because I can’t imagine ever having to leave my parents. Or having to watch them go through with the horrible experience of the freezing. Or waking up without them. I really felt for Amy on that part. The world inside the Godspeed was so real and convincing, I was totally captivated. […]

    I’ve always thought Valentine’s Day kinda sucked. Maybe it’s just me. Maybe it only sucks to me because mine in the past have usually been full of suck due to suck-ish boyfriends. Either way, in celebration of V-Day (to take some of the suck out of it and to honor all you single lovelies), I’m showing some follower love of my own with another giveaway! Yay!!   The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton Goodreads   Debut novelist Kiki Hamilton takes […]
