I absolutely loved this book! It is a dark retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I think Hodge did a VERY good job giving this story a new twist. So this book takes place in a dystopian world where the people can’t see the sky (there is a barrier that covers it) and the land is controlled by the demon king and his “demon friends”. The girl protagonist Nyx is born in an unlucky situation. Her dad desperately wanted his wife to have another child so he goes to “the demon king” Ignifex for help. But in return the eldest child has to marry him when she gets to a proper age. And because of his selfish wish his wife ends up dying as she gives birth to her final child. The author does a good job creating suspense and creates a creepy yet amazing world.

Check this book out at the library!
