Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Audio Review: Beauty and Beastly by Melanie Karsak

Beauty and Beastly by is a steampunk retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love this twist on the original! It is unlike anything I’ve ever read. The clockwork, steam powered Beast is a heartbreaking, yet charming character that was easy to see why the MC would fall for him. Set during 1814 […]
