The Devil's Beauty Review...


THE DEVIL'S BEAUTY by Airicka Phoenix

Blurb: 

Dimitri Tasarov has never had a choice in what he was. From infancy, he had been raised with the knowledge that he was a monster, an unlovable creature without a soul, until a single act of kindness threw his entire world into a tailspin.

Ava Emerson had always led a reluctantly sheltered existence. Friendship was a luxury that came with questions she couldn’t afford to answer.

They were an unlikely pair. He lived behind his mask and his roses, and she lived behind her secrets, yet they shared a bond that could get them killed if anyone ever found out.

Times were changing. The city was in turmoil. The weak were unprotected and someone needed to make a stand. But Dimitri wasn’t the only one with eyes on the north, or Ava, and they will stop at nothing to claim them both.

Can Dimitri keep Ava safe, or will the devil fall?

REVIEW:

This book felt like a darker much more adult version of Beauty and the Beast and while I enjoy a good fairy tale retelling this one felt lacking to me.  While the characters were unique and interesting the story's pace seemed to drag.  I was unable to truly feel like a part of this story whether it was because of how dark it really was or because of the pace itself I'm not sure.  I like the general idea behind the story but I wasn't pulled in like I would have hoped to have been.  

I have enjoyed some of Airicka's past works and hope to enjoy more some day.  This book however didn't catch my attention like I had hoped it would.  I hope that others enjoy it but it wasn't for me.

3.5 stars
