Reviews

"What a stunning debut. This is a book you will want to read as fast as you can for the intricate plot and as slowly as you can to savor the gorgeous world-building and the ravishing love story."--Sherry Thomas, author of THE BURNING SKY
"A completely engrossing tale."--Alex Flinn, New York Times bestselling author of BEASTLY and TOWERING
"A dazzling and clever retelling, CRUEL BEAUTY is delightfully dark, lushly romantic, and utterly spellbinding. I adored it, and can't wait to read Hodge's next novel!"--Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series
"An intricate and arresting tale well worth readers' time ... Hodge succeeds in creating a refreshingly human and real protagonist and love interest. They are both strong and flawed, and they--even more strikingly--embrace those qualities in themselves and each other. Engrossing."--Kirkus Reviews
"The push and pull romance between Nyx and Ignifex is pure fairy tale, but the characters themselves are complex and genuinely human as they struggle with their own culpability in a situation that forces them to choose between selfishness and selflessness."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"An entertaining read for teens who enjoy romantic fantasy."--School Library Journal
"Debut novelist Hodge has created a rich, complete world in this twist on 'Beauty and the Beast.'"--Publishers Weekly
"Will have readers clutching the book and flying through the pages."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"[A] fast-paced romantic fantasy."--Booklist
