Hi, lovely readers! The blog, "I am Shelfless" was made by a passionate reader who is perennially shelf-less ever since she became in love with stories through books.
'Depravity' is so dark, interesting and wonderfully written that it was stupid of me to doubt the author at the beginning. I have only read Winter Queen before this and I haven't read any classic version of Beauty and the Beast; only the disney movie and another retelling of it by Sara J. Maas entitled A Court of Thorns and Roses. Haag's take on Beauty and the Beast will draw you to its unique story and will leave you to wanting for more. I assure you!
While reading through the chapters, I have quite a few laughs. I don't know if it was supposed to be funny though and I was so absorbed to this book, flipping through its pages and reading every word eagerly that I didn't even notice the mistakes and finished the book in one sitting! Oh, the last part. It was torture. The cliffhanger was torture. In fact, I thought it was missing a few pages and cursed my Kindle app for being crappy.
The author did a wonderful job on the world building; everything I saw through reading was so clear and well thought throughout. I loved everything although some scenes were slightly disturbing, I loved it nonetheless. Melissa Haag 'owned' it! I even have a book hangover until now!
I will say no more because I'm terrified I might give everything away, but you must know that I highly recommend this book!!
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for a honest review. All opinions are my own.
