Review: A Beautiful Evil by Kelly Keaton

A Beautiful Evil
By Kelly Keaton
Hardcover, 285 pages
Expected publication: February 21st 2012
By Simon Pulse

A power she can't deny. A destiny she's determined to fight.

When Ari first arrived in the dilapidated city of New 2, all she wanted was to figure out who she was. But what she discovered was beyond her worst nightmare. Ari can already sense the evil growing inside her—a power the goddess Athena will stop at nothing to possess.

Desperate to hold on to her humanity and protect her loved ones, Ari must fight back. But Athena’s playing mind games, not just with Ari but with those she cares about most. And Athena has a very special plan for the brooding and sexy Sebastian.

Ari is determined to defeat Athena, but time is running out. With no other options, Ari must unleash the very thing she’s afraid of: herself.

Kelly Keaton really knows how to make her characters suffer. 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. Not Ari though. Even when she thought things were completely hopeless she never gave up. She would work her brain until she found a way.

A Beautiful Evil is just as action packed as Darkness Becomes Her and full of lots of twist that I did not see coming at all. My heart broke into a million pieces for Ari. She goes through so much in this book. But with everything she goes through, she learns something new about herself.

There really isn’t anything else I can say without giving away any spoilers. The story definitely progresses and you get to know Ari and all the other characters a little better in this book. Secrets are revealed, the unimaginable happens, and Ari and Sebastian’s romance grows a bit more. It was just non-stop from chapter one, super entertaining, and a definite page-turner. I loved it! I think I enjoyed this one a little more than Darkness Becomes Her to be honest.

I highly recommend this series, especially if you’re one who likes action packed books full of brave characters!

5 out of 5 stars!

Don't forget, Good Choice Reading and Once Upon A Twilight are hosting A BEAUTIFUL EVIL blog tour coming this February! Check out the dates and bloggers participating HERE.
