DESCRIPTION:

A Near-Future Retelling of Beauty and the Beast 

Alainn’s father is not a bad man. He’s a genius and an inventor. When he’s hired to create the robot Rose, Alainn knows taking the money is a mistake.

Rose acts like a human. She looks exactly like Alainn. But, something in her comes out wrong.

To save her father from a five-year prison sentence, Alainn takes Rose’s place. She says goodbye to the sun and goes to live in a tower no human is allowed to enter. She becomes the prisoner of a man no human is allowed to see.

Believing that a life of servitude lies ahead, Alainn finds a very different fate awaits her in the company of the strange, scarred recluse.

[This novel contains adult situations and is only suitable for readers who are 18+]

REVIEW:

PUT AND END TO MY MISERY ALREADY! I GIVE UP. I DO NOT INTEND ON FINISHING THIS SCI-FI PIECE OF PORN… EXCUSE THE LANGUAGE. BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED SCI-FI WHERE YOU FIND PHILOSOPHY INTERWINED WITH ALIENS, STARGAZING, SUPERNOVAS, ROBOTS AND BATTLES. WHO ALLOWED YOU GUYS TO HARLEQUIN THE GENRE.

I AM DISGUSTED. WHEN ONE BUYS A SCI-FI NOVEL IT SETS A CERTAIN STANDARD; CERTAIN EXPECTATIONS AND ABOVE ALL CERTAIN DECENCY.

NOW, that I have said all of this. The novel is not badly written. It evolves quickly, the characters, although mediocre, evoke sympathy and ones in a while put a smile on your face. Lets just don’t categorize this novel as Sci-fi, I beg of you. It is a love story/perversion that evolves in the future realm. But it is a harlequin for me.
