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. (From: Goodreads)

!!!4 out of 5 stars!!!
“I like eating. It’s very interesting to me.”
This is a new adult genre book, a genre which I haven’t reached out much to. (Mostly I read YA.). However, the sci-fi of this story got me right into it. I love the idea of almost-human robots. It’s really interesting watching Alainn pretend to be a robot.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes retelling or sci-fi.
That’s all for today. Wish you all have a lovely day. Till next time!
