A Witch's Beauty (Daughters of Arianne #2)
Mina is the daughter of an unholy union-a mermaid taken by one of the malevolent Dark Ones. While helping to rescue Prime Legion Commander Jonah, she exposed herself as a potentially dangerous weapon, susceptible...more
This is the story of seawitch, Mina and the angel, David, her guardian. It's such a tragic, beautiful story(a little wordy at times) but very engaging and sweet. Mina is a tortured soul, confining herself to cold waters and isolation to keep her Dark One half in check. She needs the constant pain to make the pain of her own life go away. David comes along and vows to protect her from the Dark Ones and knows instantly that she's his forever after.(actually he says he knew this from meeting her i...more
After the events of the first book Mina the seawitch is put under protection of the angels as now the dark ones have seen the beginnings of her untapped power. She doesn't want their help though and the attention they bring to her. Jonah is close to giving up on her when David, the young, once human angel who felt such a bond to Mina, insists he alone takes up protectio...more
What I got was a fascinating tale weaving the elements of myth and folklore (mermaids), of religion (the entire choir structure of angels in heaven), and of common life (greasy spoon diners). I ended up reading this book in a single 6-hour session; that's how absorbed I was in this tale of good vs. evil.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm going...more

Mina has live such a lonely barren existence. She has never tasted human food and worse she has never had a thoughtful gesture made towards her. Because of all Mina has survived their is no fantasy in her mind about a good life. She has a steely resolve. She is extremely disciplined and focused. Mi...more
Holy Macarena! I just finished reading A Witch's Beauty, and I am having heart palpitations. I honestly didn't think that this book could best A Mermaid's Kiss, but it did! Hill is a powerful, sensual, intense writer. Mina and David are an amazing combination..beauty and monstrousness, strength and weakness, good and evil...it's all here. Mina is one of the most fascinating characters I have ever met. Her physical manifestation of the struggle betw...more
A WITCH'S BEAUTY is a volatile and an emotionally dark rollercoaster of a read. The heroine, Mina, is an anti-heroine and an extremely dark character not only with regards to her nature but by genetics as well. The trials and tribulations she faces on a day-to-day basis would make the stark reality of most people's lives appear as a quiet picnic verses the raging chaos of Mina's hellish existence. Barely clinging to her sanity, Mina is pulled back and forth like the tides of a storm...more
As the story went I was sort of questioning the possibility of her and the hero David being together, it became more and more clear as I went along.
Mina was treated horribly as a child not so much by her mother but because she saved another young merchild like herself and instead of being thanked...more
This book is so amazing, I have to think for a while about how to do it justice when I write a review about it! Definitely, begin with A MERMAID'S KISS if you're at all interested in A WITCH'S BEAUTY. That's all I can say for now! This is one of my favorite books of all-time.
A wonderfully written...more
