Cover Quote: "One Beauty. One Beast. One Enchantment to Break."
Character Development: Angel and Bavar are each scarred by their early childhood memories - their parents disappearing from their lives in mysterious ways. They learn a few lessons along the way, but I couldn't say I ever really got to know either of them.
World Building: Earth with magical elements and a Gothic style house provide the backdrop for a spooky retelling.
Writing Style: Accessibly to readers of all ages, Wilson gears towards teens while giving adults relatable content.
What I Enjoyed: I'm a fan of favorite classics with a new twist, and I've never dreamed of this version. Angel and Bavar give fresh breath to an old tale.
Deal Benders: Some of the story felt a bit flat, and the main villain had strange dialogue.
Overall Rating: 3 stars for a solid likable read.
