After a failed courtship in an ally kingdom, twenty-one-year-old Princess Alessandra returns home to a land torn apart by mutual hatred between the humans and the dark-elves. The "Beast Princess," as Aless is known by courtiers, confidently sets her mind to ways of making peace, but her father has already decided for her: she is to marry one of the mysterious and monstrous dark-elves to forge a treaty. While she intends to preserve the peace, the Beast Princess has plans of her own. Prince Veron has been raised knowing his life is not his own, but to be bargained away by his mother, the queen of Nozva Rozkveta, to strengthen the dark-elf queendom. When his mother tells him he is to marry a self-absorbed, vile human, he is determined to do his duty regardless of his personal feelings. After arriving at the human capital, he finds the "Beast Princess" rebellious and untamed-and not to be trusted. Aless and Veron face opposition at every turn, with humans and dark-elves alike opposing the union violently. Can two people from cultures that despise one another fall in love? Can a marriage between them bond two opposing worlds together, or will it tear them apart for good? Contains mature themes.… (mais)

I really wanted to love this! It reminded me of Grace Draven's RADIANCE (which I LOVED) and well, I've always had a thing for dark elves, ever since my D&D days. While I enjoyed plenty of aspects about this book, there were also parts that sadly fell flat for me.

I loved the prose, so beautifully written and the words really flowed. I loved the descriptions and the scenery, and the names in Silen (the human kingdom) reminded me of being somewhere in Italy. I enjoyed reading about the characters, especially the dark elf queen, Aless' family, and the Brotherhood. And I loved so much of the lore and magical beasts - the unicorns and pixies and fairies!

I liked Aless and Veron individually, but I didn't feel any chemistry for them together. It seemed like they fell in love very quickly and easily, and considering her hatred and disgust for his kind just before their wedding.

I think my biggest quibble is how a lot of things weren't explained. Why was Aless called the Beast Princess? What did Veron's full title mean? To name a few. I wasn't sure if I should have read the author's other books to understand the world a little better. Some of the names in the Dark Elf queendom were really over-the-top and hard to pronounce (and while I understand that it is fantasy, I thought the names were a little ridiculous-sounding).

And the ending was one big HEA (again, which I love, if done well), but felt hastily put together, with a lot of components thrown in that came out of nowhere.

All that being said, I most likely will read the sequel. ( )

Romantic fantasy with a perfect elf, an average princess, and a side of geopolitics which requires another five books to understand. But, it struck me in the right sort of mood, so I had fun.

I have read the first book in Honfleur's Blade and Rose series, so I understood enough of the references to know that I would probably have to read further into that series in order to learn more about the human/elf conflict and Aless's history as the Beast Princess. As it was, most of the politics had me totally lost, but I didn't feel bad skimming those sections.

Because, y'know, I came for the romance - and all the tropes that come with it. Married-but-not-in-love-but-pretending, the angst machine I-didn't-tell-you-something-cause-its-never-the-right-time-and-now-you-feel-betrayed, and the frustrating classic being-noble-and-sacrificing-oneself-for-the-many.

Just pull on your swoony elf hat and gush over elf boy Veron, and don't worry too much about the rest. ( )
