Holy shit shit shit!! This was simply amazing. Beauty of the beast is a perfect blend of happiness and sadness. I selected to read "Beauty of the beast" just because I loved the cover. I'm kind of fascinated with this cover. It's so beautiful. When I read the blurb, I knew that no matter what I've to read this book now and so I got my ARC. And I was right all along, I did love this book.It was so different and gave me something to think about.This is the story of a man with the heart of gold but the face of devil. This is the story of his survival, his hate for the judgemental people and his love for a beautiful girl. This is his story of transformation❣
The beginning of the story or we can say prologue was really heart breaking. It was described so well that it felt like a real experience. I felt like I was a part of the story. Beauty of the beast was a not very different from the original fairytale but it had some freshness to it.
In "Beauty of the Beast" we are introduced to Adam who is haunted by a shitload of demons and lives in complete and utter isolation. He was sort of caught up in a fire attack as a young boy so now he has a distorted body and face and lives in regret of not being able to save his family. Seriously guys!, his past is heartbreaking and reading it, is going to make you shed some big fat tears.
Enters Isabella rose. Her life is miserable. Her father is on the verge of death and to save her family from utter poverty she made a grave mistake by accepting the proposal of a man called Raphael Dumont, who in every sense is a monster. To escape from the clutches of this ruthless and evil man she elopes with her father and somehow finds herself in Adam's castle when her father's health suddenly deteriorate. she is instantly fascinated with the owner of the castle, a beastly man with commanding aura. She wants to break down his walls and is adamant to discover the real man behind all the facade.
Adam on the hand is instantly attracted to the beautiful girl who appeared in his castle uninvited along with his sick father and is not frightened of his looks as much as others.
But one mistake and everything gets twisted and now Isabella hates Adam more than anything.
Where Adam is darkness, Isabella is the light. So what happens when these opposites fall in love? Will she ever be able to forgive Adam and will Adam be able to forget his past and move on?
All in all this was great read and I highly recommend this!!
Rachel L. Demeter has done a fantastic job. She has that unique way of storytelling that brings characters to life and you feel like you are a part of everything that's going on in the book. I am really glad that she didn't try to stretch the story needlessly. At last I just want to say that she is a damn fine writer and did an awesome job.
