Fair warning, Gentle Reader, here Beauty and the Beast get busy!So, the problem with Elfpunk, the melding of magic and technology, is that it can work extremely well OR it can be a complete disaster, like when you try combining two disparate food ingredients. Potatoes on pizza? OMG, that was surprisingly so good! Gummy bears mixed with popcorn? Boyfriend, I love you, but that was horrible.Here we have a lot magic and a lot of tech mixed together with results that aren't terrible, exactly, its ju [...]
I think short stories are my jam.I loved this re-imagining of Beauty & The Beast! It was a very clever story, with fae, and interesting characters and well-written dialogue. And, steamy. Steamy steampunk, rawr.I was excited to find out there will be more to this series!
This book is great. The characters are interesting and fully formed. The plot is an original take on a classic tale. Once you start reading it, it's hard to put down.
Beauty and the Clockwork Beast was a much better read than I thought it was going to be. There are a few things wrong with it, but the story and the characters were good. It was a unique take on the Beauty and Beast story, complete with steampunk/clockwork themes. I did like Isabelle and Arthur as well as the minor characters. Mostly, the plot was good, there were a few confusing things that took me awhile to understand completely, for example, why the fairy cursed Arthur and the orphans to begi [...]
Interesting take on Beauty and the Beast ฅʕ•ﻌ•ʔฅCool Steampunk and interesting story for the Fairy Tale genre. Really good, short quick read with a bit of what I thought was Peter Pan. Impressive. The magical world described was so beautiful, it was easy to imagine. I'm really glad to have read it. The clockwork, trinkets part of the story was really cool. All-in-all, an interesting, wonderful take on the Beauty and the Beast fairytale. The book may have been short; but it was well w [...]
This story was over too quickly because I couldn't put it down! It includes traditional elements, nods to the wonderful Disney movie, and fun new ideas that really drew me in. The clockwork additions were awesome, the magical world of Lonterra sounds beautiful, the castle inhabitants were abundantly charming, the villains monstrous, and I'll be dreaming about those purple roses. One of the most memorable moments for me was a heartbreaking situation involving a tooth (but don't worry, there is a [...]
And now for something completely different.My take on the classic fairytale, blending aspects from both original versions as well as the Disney version. It is an adult fairytale, not meant to be read to children.The original (very different) first draft was written as a birthday present for my best friend.
Beauty and The Clockwork BeastHere is a wonderful story of the Beauty and and the Beast. It's has the story of Beauty and The Beast with a little of Peter Pan and a little of the Wizard of Oz. It's a short story of people seeing past the outside of a person and seeing what they are on the inside. I enjoyed reading this book and the different twist on an old fairytale.
It is a Beauty and the Beast retelling Of course I loved it!! I adored the changes made and the steampunk aspect of it as well. Happiness all around!To see my full review, head over to my blog:apopofjess/2016/0
First off, do not mistake this for an innocent retelling. There are many explicit scenes, which (for me) really brought the enchantment down a few notches. I also love steampunk, but didn't find much in this story. It seemed more like a few gears were thrown in haphazardly rather than used to create anything pertaining to the genre. The faery element was more believable. It gave me the uneasy feeling I often get when reading about the fae and their unpredictable behavior.Overall, I felt there wa [...]
** I received a copy of this book for free through a giveaway. **Enjoyable little story. More sex than I was expecting but well-written and not gratuitous so that's okay! An interesting take on Beauty and the Beast with some intriguing secondary characters. A good read for anyone who enjoys twisted fairy-tales (although only recommended for older readers). I just wish it had been a bit longer.
