He was a prince, forced into a new life as a pauper.
Luc, a poor but vain young man in 1775 Paris, is confused by his dreams of gilded ballrooms and unknown people in lace and jewels. What’s more, everything before the past two years is a hazy fog in his mind. His only link is Aunt Mathilde, who gives him few answers.
What he doesn’t know is that ‘Aunt Mathilde’ is in fact his mother—and a Sorceress. She keeps him captive under her magical veil, desperate to both protect him and punish him for the evil deeds of his royal past.
When disease leaves Luc scarred and weakened, he feels his life is over. He pushes away his humble friends, including Emilie, a young housemaid.
Emilie, scarred from smallpox, is resigned to life as a spinster. Yet, she sees beauty and joy in life and understands Luc’s despair beneath his bitter, beastly attitude.
Unless Luc can embrace his inner strength, care about others, and love unselfishly, he risks destroying himself once more.
This is Book 1 of the Mages in the Mundane historical fantasy series and is an adult twist on Beauty and the Beast, with family drama, a secret underground society of Mages, and a sweet love story. The novel ends with a lead-in to the sequel.
I really wanted to enjoy this book. For the most part, I did. I really loved the story and the idea behind the story. The thing that just didn’t do it for me were the characters. I didn’t care for any of them. The ones I thought I might have been able to connect with weren’t really big parts of the story so I can’t really give a solid answer on that. I may read the next book in the series when it releases, if it hasn’t already. I’m just really not sure at this moment. I also may reread this book just to give it another chance.
Thanks for reading! Please check out the other bloggers in this tour!
