Victoria (Spoiler free answer) I've read both and I LOVED the Grisha trilogy, but really enjoyed Cruel Beauty too! The plot and storyline are completley different, but there are definitely similarities with the characters. Ignifex, the villain/love interest is almost the equivalent of the Darkling. He is powerful, mysterious, and well, dark. The main character, Nyx, reminds me of Alina. She has this "duty" to kill Ignifex. However, her attraction to him leaves her torn between two very different sides.
