A Man Becoming a Beast . . .
The naga lord Daman is trapped between forms, half man half wyvern. Once the
savior of enslaved changelings all over the kingdom of Sanguenay, Daman is now
a danger to everyone around him. The curse that holds him prisoner in his own
skin and scales keeps him in a constant state of imbalance, his altruistic
nature fighting with the quick and violent temper of his more bestial side.
When his plan to capture the witch who cursed him fails and leaves him with a
sweet and beautiful changeling, Daman finds himself with the perfect
opportunity to prove to himself that he is more man than beast. But hope dies a
little more every day, and with every passing sunset, Daman finds his temper
growing more and more out of control…
A changeling searching for freedom . . .
Guilt is eating Gigi alive. Since her family lost their fortune and had to move
out of their mansion to a poor farm, Gigi has never felt better–and her sister
has never felt worse. It seems that every time Gigi digs her hands into the
earth to work the farm, she feels stronger, and every time her sister even thinks
about working the land, she grows weaker. Gigi’s existence is about easing her
sister’s pain, and the guilt over wanting freedom from that responsibility is
killing her. What does it say about her loyalty when she leaps at a chance to
be the prisoner of a monster just to get away from being her sister’s keeper?
And what does it say about her that this monster makes her feel more alive than
she ever imagined?
A tale as old as time…
An enchanted rose. A witch’s curse. A beast’s temper. A maiden who can see the
potential for good even beneath the scales of a monster. It’s amazing what can
transpire…All for a Rose.
All for a Rose is a retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. This story starts off with strong and hardworking Maribel doing the house chores, while her weak and sick sister Corrine stays inside and hates her poor life. You soon get a feel for the types of people these two are, and you feel for Maribel and the life she must endure.
Bad choices made by her father seal her future and she is sent to live with the ‘beast’ Daman. He’s not as everyone assumes, however, and it appears Maribel and he are connected in more ways than her father’s bad choice.
A stunning re-telling of a classic fairytale, one with twists and turns at every corner. I loved this book.
Jennifer enjoys listening to Alice Cooper, trying new recipes (to which she will add garlic whether it calls for it or not), watching television with her family, and playing with her woefully intelligent son.
