Beauty and the Beast by Keair Snyder
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this in exchange for an honest review from LOP.
I really enjoyed this book. I don't usually go for anything historical but I just had to read this book. The way that Snyder creates scene after scene in such a beautiful and poetic way was mesmerizing.
It was a really long book and despite not being able to read more every day, I would pick up the book and be instantly transported into this world.
I grew to love Mother even though I was unsure of her at the start. Lucania annoyed me throughout the book although I did love him for sending Arianna out to experience the world without him even though it hurt them both. At times (when they were together) I didn't feel their love, Arianna seemed more obsessed and Lucania seemed more aloof.
However, it was a great read and showed that there is life beyond the man you love and that while life can kick you in the teeth, there is always a silver lining.
