Six Scorched Roses Review

Six Scorched Roses is the best Beauty and the Beast retelling I’ve read! I really loved this story.

Lilith is such a unique and refreshing character. The vampire Vale is sweet but also spicy. Their relationship develops at a great pace, especially for a novella. And I loved the letters they wrote back and forth while they were away!

I really enjoyed the mystery of the curse and learning about Lilith’s illness as well.

This book is part of Crowns of Nyaxia (The Serpent and the Wings of Night), but could be read as a standalone. I’m interested to see how these characters will come into play in the coming books.

Giving this one 2 peppers! Totally recommend picking this one up!

Quotes

“I gave him a small smile. “I’ll see you in a month, Vale.” And he returned that smile—a thing so lovely I barely even noticed the teeth. “I’ll see you in a month, mouse.””

“No, logic doesn’t matter in the face of fear and emotion. Logic falls to its knees before hatred, and hatred flourishes in fear—and my people were terrified.”

“Vale wasn’t a cure for anything. He was a whole new disease, one I’d carry with me to my inevitable end. I didn’t want to let him go. I didn’t like goodbyes. Easier to be the first one to go. But they come for us all, anyway.”
