    Inhaltsangabe

    Bloomsbury presents A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer, read by Kate Handford, Davis Brooks and Matt Reeves.

    A New York Times best seller!

    In a lush, contemporary fantasy retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Brigid Kemmerer gives listeners another romance perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer.

    Fall in love, break the curse.

    It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his 18th year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

    Nothing has ever been easy for Harper. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

    Break the curse, save the kingdom.

    A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall...and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

    Love at first read

    I fell in love with this book so easily and fast. The main characters are all driven and passionate, often by the same forces and other times by completely different needs. But at the end of the day, they do come together for the best of all. The story was complex and it did not reach for any unnecessary drama, in a desperate need to keep the attention of the reader. I liked the balance of romance, action and friendship. All of the protagonists progressed during the book and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

    It was good

    I liked the book. The narrators are also good. The only cringy parts were when Rhen was a beast. Hhaha. But overall I enjoyed it!
