My review: Beauty and the Clockwork Beast by Nancy Campbell Allen
This classic telling has romance beyond looks, courage to chase ghosts, vampires and werewolves. Someone is haunting the Manor, blackmailing the beast, there has been two murders in the family this year and now someone is making Kate ill.
I love the Beauty character. She is strong willed, courage, caring and hard working. Lucy looks beyond a pretty or beastly face and sees the person inside. Lucy comes to see if she can help her cousin Kate. Who is sick, scared and a newly wed.
The beast is the Duke of Blackwell Manor. Miles has secrets and a temper. Everyone keeps looking at his scar on his face. His bride of one month died and his sister the next day. Miles goes to his hunting lodge every month by himself for a few days.
I enjoyed reading Beauty and the Clockwork Beast. Hated to put the book down. You never knew what would happen next.
The setting for the book is Steampunk England. It makes for a different world that I would like to see more of.
I was given this ebook to read for free from NetGalley and Shadow Mountain Publishing. In return I agree to give a honest review of Beauty and the Clockwork Beast.
