Cruel Beauty

Cruel Beauty - Rosamund Hodge I really enjoyed this. I am not one that goes for your typical "romance" story, but this had so many more layers than that. Nyx was a fun heroine- she has a little bit of a wicked side that sets her apart. I loved the relationship between her and Ignifex. It was sweet, while never falling into cheesy territory. I did find a lot of the plot (and mythological aspects) to be quite confusing though, particularly around the last 1/4 of the book. It slightly lessened my enjoyment and I may need to go back and do a reread at some point to have a better grasp on just what exactly happened.
