Review : Ensnared by Rita Stradling

​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)

*I received this book as an ARC from Netgalley*

!!!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!
