Though she in unwilling to save herself, she is hesitant to turn a friend into a monster for her own benefit and then feel resentful afterwards.

Ari was alone so much she isnt used to caring about people but she doesnt even worry about it, she knows she wants to protect her new classmate and get her long lost father back and Violet! Sebastian again hot and cold!

In the nd it all works out and leaves you with more questions.Kelly Keaton again you amaze me and write something amazing for us who love your book!

Alway put, this series has an awesome ide and world-building but flawed execution, lacklustre secondary characters and formulaic writing.First the positives: I like the world building and the main character a LOT.

The location of her temple is – supposedly – one of the most well guarded secrets of the hellenisti world and yet Ari finds all the clues to find it after a couple of visits to the library with a thoroughly easy way to open its alter-dimensional door.Although I understand that there is an element of urgency given how Ari ’ s stepfather is undoubtedly being horribly tortured by Athena, Ari and her friends rush into danger with no back-up, no training ( unless you count the couple of sessions she had) and no real plan.

But in the beginnin, I felt that every single plot point is addressed, Athena was defeated ( for now), Ari is sort of comfortable with her powers and has the grac to fight the curse and Ari and love-interest Sebastian walk into the sunset even though Ari does something really fucked up to him when they are taken by Athena.

The esolution of that conflict is so rushed and dealt with in such a hand wavy manner as to be undesirable ( although there are things still left open, I do wonder if this is going to be the only book?) .Furthermore, the primar characters are one-dimensional including Sebastian – his character is only surface deep, his descriptions don ’ t go much beyond his looks and even the one thing that might define him in terms of emotional conflict is disregarded with no real consequences.

We start A Beautiful Evil with Ari learning to fight, because she can ’ t afford to get whooped by Athena.

I thought Ari had it bad in Darkness Becomes Her, but what she goes through in A Beautiful Evil, if it were me, I would have crumpled into pieces and completely lost myself.

My heart broke into a million pieces for Ari. She goes through so much in this autobiograph.

The story definitely progresses and you get to know Ari and all the ther characters a little better in this books.

I love the colours and the transition from hair to snake reflecting Ari 's pending transformation.The Gist: Having survived Athena 's attack, Ari attempts to learn about her enemy and formulate a plan for rescuing her father and fianc, Violet.

I could n't keep all of the haracters and their powers straight and I did n't remember any of the hierarchy stuff from the next nove.

Honestly, I would much rather read a nove about Violet than about Ari. I found it ifficult to read the motivations behind some of the characte actions and this made me care less about them.
