Waiting on Wednesday- Cruel Beauty

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by http://www.breakingthespine.blogspot.com/

Ah I am a sucker for a fairy tale retelling, especially one that looks dark and compelling. So this week’s Waiting on Wednesday is all about:

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

A Beauty and the Beast retelling. I especially love that the main character is named Nyx, who is the Goddess of Night.

This novel is 352 pages long and come out in January 2013

Found here:



The romance of Beauty and the Beast meets the adventure of Graceling in a dazzling fantasy novel about our deepest desires and their power to change our destiny.

Betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom, Nyx has always known her fate was to marry him, kill him, and free her people from his tyranny.

But on her seventeenth birthday, when she moves into his castle high on the kingdom's mountaintop, nothing is as she expected—particularly her charming and beguiling new husband.

Nyx knows she must save her homeland at all costs, yet she can't resist the pull of her sworn enemy—who's gotten in her way by stealing her heart.

For fans of bestselling authors Kristin Cashore and Alex Flinn, this gorgeously written debut infuses the classic fairy tale with glittering magic, a feisty heroine, and a romance sure to take your breath away
