This is such a fresh book. Beatrice, or Bea, is not human. She is a tainted creature who happens to be extremely beautiful evil. But she's trying to be good and find her way. And although poor Bea tries to be good, everyone pretty much hates her and fears her for what she is. Everyone, including herself, is surprised when she starts an unlikely friendship with the easy-going Cale and his really cranky counterpart, Prince Hazen. They help her get through school life and the evils that come her way.
Hazen, the Prince and love interest (???) is a really cranky, unlikeable and boring character. It saddens me that he and Bea have a spark of sorts. I much preferred the villain as the love interest. PLOT TWIST!! Bea really struggles between being good the human way and being good-her way. The two sides aren't the same and she tries to find a balance that isn't always agreeable to everyone.
It's hard to review this book because there is much going on but nothing I can say that won't give away all the plot twists that Bea faces, so this review will be fairly short. Take my word, it's definitely a good and fresh read where the the main character isn't a goody two-shoes, but actually struggles to not be evil.
