A review by emberfireheart
Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge


This was a cute, entertaining book. The story was unique and imaginative (I’ve seen some reviews calling it a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but I didn’t get that vibe). I enjoyed the way Nyx’s internal conflicts were written; I thought she was a well done MC especially for a debut novel. I also enjoyed how witty the villain was. The book is fairly fast paced and there were some twists that I didn’t see coming. I would recommend this book to someone looking for a quick read with a fairytale quality- I used it as basically a palate cleanser after some heavy books and it was perfect for that.
