Anouk is a Beastie. Sworn to be a servant to her witch mistress for the rest of her unnatural life. But Anouk’s a dreamer, she wants to live with the Pretties. The Pretties who go about their natural life and wear gorgeous clothes and have nice shiny things. Beasties don’t get control over their life. Their witch mistress does. But when something terrible happens to her mistress, she realizes she’s part of a world that has more secrets than ever.

I loved this one. The pacing, the plot, and the beautifully detailed scenes of a Parisan landscape. I was intrigued. There’s something about Megan Shephard’s writing that lets me fly through the pages, reading as fast as I can because I want to know what happens next. I love how Anouk transforms by the end of the book, it’s such a nice thing to see. And I also liked where Shephard ended it. It gave me a feeling of finality, but it also kept me hooked for the next book.

Enchanting. Magical. Grim Lovelies is such a heart stopping page turner!
