I won this book on a different website. It didn't show the cover and the description sounded like sci-fi. The author mailed me this book, along with another one of her books, both autographed. Which was very nice. But I was immediately turned off when I saw the cover and realized that this was a romance novel. Not really my style.

So. It was okay. The story was kind of cool, but could have been developed better (although this might be an unfair statement since I did not read the first two books i

The Beautiful Being is the third and final book in Jessica Inclan’s paranormal romance trilogy, which includes the books Intimate Beings and Being With Him. It is the story of Edan and Ava, exiled from their destroyed home of Cygiria and stuck on a hostile and unfamiliar planet. They both know their “double” i

In "The Beautiful Being" Jessica Inclán gives the reader a wonderful, fast-paced, sexy paranormal romance. The novel is the third in Inclán’s "The Being Trilogy" (the two previous are "Intimate Beings" and "Being With Him"). You don’t have to have read the first two to enjoy this one (although you will almost certainly want to).

Inclán’s heroine is Ava Arganos, a strong, lusty, intelligent woman who has recently been freed from “The Source”—a spirit storage unit reminiscent of the Tibetan Buddhi

Recommends it for: scifi romance readers looking for something a little different
I won this in a goodreads giveaway and was eagerly anticipating reading it. Unfortunately I had a reading lull and only got to read it recently. I must say it wasn't quite what I was expecting.

Part of my problem with the book I know came from the fact that I haven't read the first two books in the series. I'm sure that if I had some of the interactions and comments that confused me or struck me as odd wouldn't have. The other part was that this book felt far more scifi than paranormal to me. No

The Beautiful Being by Jessica Barksdale Inclan
Paranormal Romance – Sept. 29th, 2009
4 stars


The Beautiful Being is the satisfying conclusion to Jessica Inclan’s Being series. In this book the author finishes the absorbing story of the Mirav family with Edan’s story. I have really anticipated Edan’s book because his character is so appealing and I wondered how the author would resolve his past.

Edan is a tragic and heroic figure. The leader of a people hunted for their special abilities, he carri

I'm not terribly familiar with most romance novels, but I found this one to be quite interesting. This is the third book in the Being Trilogy, but from what I can tell you don't have to read the others to understand what all is going on. I had no trouble picking this up and reading it without having previously read the other two. Though I'm sure the others have more back story for this and I'm thinking about going and picking them up so I can see.

I thought that concept of the pairings of the cou

I won a copy of this book from the author through a contest on this site, so thank you to Jessica Inclan.

However as I read this book, I didn't care for it. I do not like to read out of order so after I was able to track down the first 2 in this series I was set to read this one. I didn't make it through the first one, but did make an effort to read this one. There was a lot I missed by not finishing the first and not reading the second, but I was able to pick up where they were in the story. The

I won this book in a giveaway via the First Reads Program on Goodreads; I recieved this book today, along with another one by Jessica Inclan. Both were autographed, which was a nice touch, and I was quite surprised to find the other book in my parcel. So thank you!

Now, maybe it's because I've never read the first two books or, quite frankly, even heard of this series before winning this giveaway, but I simply couldn't get into it. The fact that I don't greatly enjoy sci-fi probably added to it.

I won this book on good reads. This book is number three in the trilogy. I have not read the previous books but I enjoyed this one a lot. I loved the character and this book is well written. It was a little confusing at times with the characters but in all I liked the book. I was able to follow the story without the previous books, but I will be purchasing them soon. It is very passionate and recommend that you pick this book to read.

Thank you for the two autographed books I really appreciate it

I received this book for free as part of the goodreads firstreads giveaway. Not having read the first two books in this series I wasn't really sure if I would be able to understand this book, but the synopsis got my attention. I was not disappointed, this is a sweet romance with a cool element of scifi mixed in. I love the idea of soulmates and the way Edan and Ava are meant to be with each other was lovely. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys romance.

I won this book on goodreads and was only recently able to pick it up and read it. The author was nice enough to send me this book and one of her others and I really appreciate that. The issue I had was that I haven't read the books leading up to it and I wasn't to sure about some of the background. Even with that though, I did enjoy the book and plan to read the books that came before so that I am never confused (by the books anyway, haha) again.

I won this book from the Library Thing Member Giveaway program. I thought that this was an interesting story, but I had problems following the story line, especially because this book was the third in the series and I had not read the other two books. Overall, I would recommend this book, but generally I would not recommend it without reading the other two books.

this book and its characters just didn't appeal to me. I don't know if it had anything to do with starting at book #3 but I didn't find it very interesting. The dialog is less than inspiring and sometimes hard to follow.

At some future point I might try reading the first book in the series but I won't be rushing to it.

Yay! I am so excited to get this book on first reads!

This book was an interesting romance. It might have been a little far out for me, but I enjoyed it.

I was so excited to read this book but disappointed when I finally was reading it maybe it was because I was confused most of the time while reading :/

Good conclusion to the trilogy. I recommend reading the other two first, though this can be a stand alone. 3.5 stars.
