#BookReview of Roses: The Tales Trilogy, Book 1 by G. R. Mannering

Roses  (The Tales Trilogy, #1)
About the Book: A dark rendition of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast!

She bears no name. Her silvery appearance is freakish to the numerous inhabitants of Sago, the cosmopolitan capital of Pevorocco in a fantasy realm. With her mother vanishing at the instance of her birth, she is sent to live with the cruel, rich Ma Dane, where she is punished daily for something, though she knows not what. Tauntingly named Beauty, she flees Sago in a violent uprising that sets out to massacre all Magics and journeys to the furthest point of the country.

But Beauty cannot hide in the grassy Hillands forever. Before long, the State officials find her and threaten to take her back to war-torn Sago where death surely awaits. In a midnight blizzard she escapes them, running into a deep, enchanted forest to a great and terrible beast who will bargain for her life.

But can Beauty accept Beast? Eternity is a long time.

She signed her first publishing contract when she was nineteen and she writes under the names Rose Mannering and G.R Manneirng. She currently resides in the UK and her favourite things in life are books, dogs and tea.

My Review: Sadly, this book left me a little...unfulfilled? It felt way too rushed and left me questions. Some things felt repeated over and over again. It sounded like such a good concept but it's sad that it fell so short of my expectations. It honestly felt like there were two separate story lines and they weren't fitting well together. I was really looking forward to really liking this book.

Do I Recommend this book? Kind of?
