Description

After a failed courtship in an ally kingdom, 21-year-old Princess Alessandra returns home to a land torn apart by mutual hatred between the humans and the dark-elves. The "Beast Princess", as Aless is known by courtiers, confidently sets her mind to ways of making peace, but her father has already decided for her: She is to marry one of the mysterious and monstrous dark-elves to forge a treaty. While she intends to preserve the peace, the Beast Princess has plans of her own.  

Prince Veron has been raised knowing his life is not his own, but to be bargained away by his mother, the queen of Nozva Rozkveta, to strengthen the dark-elf queendom. When his mother tells him he is to marry a self-absorbed, vile human, he is determined to do his duty regardless of his personal feelings. After arriving at the human capital, he finds the "Beast Princess" rebellious and untamed - and not to be trusted.  

Aless and Veron face opposition at every turn, with humans and dark-elves alike opposing the union violently. Can two people from cultures that despise one another fall in love? Can a marriage between them bond two opposing worlds together, or will it tear them apart for good?  

Contains mature themes.

Not bad but not good either.

I can't really say I hated this book or anything but the story was easy and predictable. The characters feelings were so rushed and changed at a drop of a hat. They needed more time for the characters relationship and mind set to change and evolve. They book was to short and could have served the story to have had time to grow.

unique

loved this one. I listen to A LOT of audio books, sometimes more than 1 a day. (Sounds pathetic but I work with my hands, by myself.) It takes a really good one for me to review it. I enjoyed how this one takes into account the characters preconceived ideas of each other, and how their relationship grows and changes. I love how they learn from each other and help each other heal. The story is written in a unique enough way that I didn't feel like I could predict every little thing.
Definitely worth a credit.
ps. There is sex, though not explicit.

Has potential!

This is my first Miranda Honfleur book and i find that it has the potential to be better. I really like the story idea and it reminded me of Grace Draven’s Radiance but in a fantasy world that people are more familiar with: Fae, unicorns, shifters. I agree with other reviewers that the world-building and characters’ profiles need improvement. There was a lot of “extra talk” that seemed like explanations of explanations and did not paint a clear picture of the situations at hand. It made a lot of parts of the story boring and unnecessarily long, unfortunately.

I do not think the summary of the book and the contents of the book match completely. I got the impression that Veron (and his family) would be hesitant to accept the renowned Beast Princess, but he was understanding and his vows to her at the human wedding were sincere. Aless was painted as a bold, unruly princess, but I got none of that in the story. I remember she was supposedly bold in bed, but that was it. Maybe there was more?

Also, the characters’ names...um cut it down by half or make the names titles like Danaerys from GOT.

What I like and found unique was that the Elves were matriarchal and had “queen”-doms. The women are expected to be just as strong if not better than the men. The men are respectful and treat the women as equals. I have not come across a book that has this.

Good job regardless!

I would not have used a credit for this (even though audiobooks can be exchanged at any time) because of the underdevelopment of the countries, personalities, and histories. However, i am still going to keep this because of its potential. Maybe the book will be revised in print. I would definitely get that.

Dara Rosenberg did an excellent job narrating. Her voice is clear like Carly Robbins and her low tone for the men’s parts are not overly forced. I had some trouble distinguishing between the “extra talk” and dialogue and even dialogue amongst groups, but it is not a high concern. While Rosenberg can hold her own, I would have liked a man to voice Veron and other men’s parts. I cannot picture a “monstrous” Veron with her tone. 😂 Maybe it could be done with the kind of dual narration Renea Mason has for her Dr. Vincent trilogy. 👏

If you are curious to read this, proceed with no expectations and keep an open mind.

Miranda Honfleur is amazing

I wasn’t sure when I started this book if I would like it as much as I love her Blade and Rose series but I do! It is a great story. I love the romance of it all! The narration was wonderful as well! Another Win from Miranda Honfleur!

Great start to this series!!!!

Such a great book. The characters were thoroughly written and the story flowed great. Aless and Vernon are set on a path of unity between humans and the dark elves never knowing the bond they would form and the trials end battles they would endure for their mission of peace. The epilogue makes me so excited for the next book.

Another excellent story from Miranda Honfleur

This is yet another excellent story from Miranda Honfleur! This tells the story of Alessandra after she returns home from the King's Court. It is a great story of personal growth and how diversity and generosity can overcome hatred. I highly recommend this story!

Pleasantly surprised !

I usually steer away from books Until they have more reviews. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. The characters seemed well thought out. Our heroine was a little bit self-absorbed in the beginning but grew and I like to see characters develop. Our hero also was on a journey of self discovery. The book Did leave me a little bit confused and I kept wondering if there was an earlier book or series that would have cleared up the aspects of what was going on in their world at that time. Still it’s a solid book and I am looking forward for the next release.
