Pretty interesting plot. Kind of derailed at the end. Also the spicy scene wasn't written very well, at least not to my standards.

Another giveaway book finished! This was a fairly quick read, at less than 600 pages. Gives beauty and the beast vibes complete with a Curse and all. It is the first in the series and the only book out right now with the second in Kickstart and the 3rd planned for next year. Magic, enemies to lovers, dragons, fae, war, etc this has just about everything in a fantasy YA novel. I advise only reading when you know you have time, otherwise you might find yourself awake at 3 am unable to put it down.

I received this novel through LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

S. D. Huston's "A Curse of Scales and Feathers" is a new take on the popular "Beauty and the Beast" myth. It is told from the viewpoints of both the Beauty, Airi, and the Beast, Kalden, and hits all the usual tropes of a curse, a rose, a self-sacrificing heroine and a beast who isn't the monster he appears. Both main protagonists are well delineated and likable and there is a host of enjoyable minor characters as well as more than one villain. It is quite obviously the first book in a series with set-ups for the next books but that doesn't detract from the enjoyment of a well-written, if somewhat lengthy, story.… (mere)

This is a type of retelling of Beauty and the Beast, IMO, with a lot more intricacy and fantasy. It is the story of Airi (FMC) and Kalden (MMC) and how they come together (or almost don’t). Airi has a difficult decision to make whether to become the bride of a very cruel and abusive ruler, Lord Galton, or mysterious Kalden, who is King Kalden the Eighteenth or the Unseen King. Airi also has a third choice, neither suitor, and taking death as an escape but she lives only to take care of her sister and try to find freedom for both of them. There is much world-building, almost too much IMO, along with a bit of repetition. I understand that this is the first of the Brides of the Dragon Kings series but everything doesn’t have to be put into this first novel. Between the sheer number of characters and the different magical things happening, this has notes of War and Peace by Tolstoy in its complexity. It was an enlightening read but could perhaps benefit from being “less”.… (mere)
