For me, this is the second book by this author, and also the second book in her Dark Immortal series, and unlike the previous one which had a historical fantasy feel, this story has a more of an urban feel to it and I love the versatility the author is expressing in her writing style. I also love the cultural diversity the author is expressing here. But most importantly, the author's imagination and the ability to transform the familiar story into something completely original is impressive.

Wow! What a great read/listen. I loved the intro to all these characters. A misfit group of chosen family that is so relatable. A story of acceptance and sacrifice and a love that overcomes. I loved the sweet and steamy. The bonds and dynamics of these characters. The narration was wonderfully done, smooth and easy to listen to bringing the characters and story to life. Loved everything about this listen!

This is a reimagined Beauty and the Beast story. It was definitely a new take on this fairy tale. I did quite enjoy it. It is a good book, and really draws you into the story.

The narration was on point with different voices for each character helping you to tell the difference between each character and who was talking.

Behind the Veil: Beauty and the Daemon by LaSasha Flame is a wonderful story to read. This is book number one in this wonderful start to a brand new series that I am so hooked on now so bad I can not wait to read the rest of this series. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves reading about erotic and paranormal romance.

This is supposed to be a retelling of Beauty and The Beast and to be honest I lost interest in the story pretty quickly and for me this was closer to a 2.5 star read. I was trying to understand how old Petra and Zahak were, they both acted very immature and the fact that they hung out in a Community Center made me think 18-19 y/o. Zahak is an immortal and is several centuries old and I expected more from him given who and what he was.

Was uncertain as to what Petra actually did, as she seemed to

This was an interesting take on Beauty and the Beast. I quite enjoyed the story, the plot, the main characters; however the number of side characters got to be quite lengthy and hard to keep straight. Or it seemed they were brought on and then never brought back to the story, such as the coffee shop owner. The aspect of the beast side of the story was a great take on a well loved fairy tale of mine. I did enjoy this work but I did get a little confused at times with all the characters.

I’m A Fan!

This story was hot and I loved it! LaSasha Flame is a new author for me and I have to say I’m very impressed and will be looking for more of her works. I loved how the Zahak and Petra valued each other for who they were and didn’t judge a book by its cover.

I really enjoyed the audiobook detailing the friendship, budding romance then love story between Zahak and Petra. There were times when I really want Petra to make the decision between the 2 who were after her heart but ultimately s

Zahac feels out of place in his demon family. We meet him when his father is presenting him with a nymph to do with as he likes, but he does not want to be cruel and is forced to kill her, so she does not get raped repeatedly by his father. He and his friends flee to the human world to relax and there he meets his mate, a human, who is almost purely good. She shows him that he does not need to follow in his father's footsteps.
A slightly weird re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. I could not reall

Loved the book, the story was well written and the characters were intriguing. Once I started I could not get enough, from the start till the end I was engrossed I was even on the edge of my seat with twists and turns, lust and passion, strength happiness and love. The story of sensational feelings that can run through the body while reading. Do yourself a favor and buy the book you want be disappointed.
Thank you for allowing me to review your book.

A modern twist on the classic beauty and the beast tale, Petra is in an unwanted engagement to a man she doesn't love but she meets Zahak and his crew of misfits and is instantly drawn to him but feels torn between family and the love that is growing between them even as a daemon prince who cant let his walls down so fast. well written with a great story plot quite different from the other retelling out there. cant wait to hear more from the crew!

Every time I read a new book by this author, I enjoy it more and more! The world created in this story is fantastic! At first I thought it was going to be a retelling of a beauty and the beast tale, but it goes further than that. A new world is created based on many mythical beings coming together to form a ”family” of their own with their own pasts. I was surprised and excited to read how other tales are going to be intertwined with characters from this story! I can’t wait to pick up the next b ...more

This is my 1st read and review for this author and I loved this story it’s a different kind of Beauty and the Beast retelling and I’ve never read a retelling like this before it’s completely original and now I will be on the lookout for more of this authors stories. Zahak who is a Daemon hides behind a skull mask to hide from his pain that is until he meets Petra who changes his whole life. A wonderful story and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.

This is the 5th book I've read written by LaSasha Flame; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

I absolutely love all the characters and the way Ms. Flame showed the emotions of all the characters, making it easy for me to relate to them. The whole concept of the book teaches us not to judge a book by it’s cover, so to speak. She twisted the fairy tale perfectly, making it a great afternoon read.

A twist on a old tale.

I always enjoy a Beaity and the Beast retelling. Only this one turns it in it’s ear and does it with s twist.
Steamy, a daemon with horrible parents and a twist.

I don’t have any complaints about the narrator. He did his job but I wasn’t in love with the voice but I didn’t hate it either. Much like the story it was eh. I didn’t love the story I didn’t hate it. The prologue had my attention but then it just kind went a little lack luster after that. I am not sure how it’s a beauty and the beast retelling but the story line is good. I just wasn’t captivated by it and I feel it could have been told more cohesively. The main character was wishy-washy and not ...more
