Review: Beauty's Beast by Amanda Ashley

Oct 16, 2014

Beauty

Fair of face and figure, Kristine is young, innocent, pure. Yet she has been condemned to the gallows for killing a man. The only one who can save her is a lord so infamous that some say he is the son of the Devil himself... 
And the Beast

Erik Trevayne is called the Demon Lord of Hawksbridge Castle, but few know of the curse he lives under. Or the terrifying changes slowly gnawing away at his humanity. When he weds her, all he wants of Kristine is a son. But when he beds her, a wild hope is born--that love that can tame even the most monstrous of beasts...

Beauty's Beast evokes visions of a fairy tale. Talk about cover love!!! I loved how the book began with the mysterious Erik saving Kristine.  It was very promising, making me want to turn pages.  I wanted to know more about the Demon Lord, know his secrets.  Yet as the story progressed I felt as though things within the story didn't ring true for me.  In my mind's eye Kristine would have acted quite differently, not to mention Erik, who dared much saving Kristine from the gallows.  I could not connect with Kristine.   He needed an edge.  Secondary characters brought questions to the forefront, and many were never answered.  The most memorable character in the story was the witch, Erik's late wife's mother!  She had depth and her character played true throughout the book until her ultimate demise.  I wish there had been more explored in the story.
