Check out my 5 ⭐️ review of Beauty and Rage Book #1 in the Broken Crown Series by Natalie Bennett


Beauty and Rage

(Broken Crown Book #1)

Author Natalie Bennett

Genre- Dark Paranormal

Release Date- March. 10, 2019



An abomination came in the middle of the night.

Death and destruction followed in his wake.

The sun fell from the sky and has yet to return.

Now trapped in a world where the savage and corrupt rule, my life has been compromised.

He stole my crown with bloodstained hands and claimed me as his queen.

Reyes Straykova is seductively cruel.

Volatile and ruthless, a vicious beast.

His sinister scheme has just begun.

Bow to the king and watch chaos reign.

Beauty & Rage is book one (a prelude) in the Broken Crowns series.

This is a twisted PNR not meant for those who are faint of heart.


My Review-


Supe– (Sue-pay) all supernaturals.

Demi (Dim-E) all half breed supernaturals.

Despire– (D-peer) unknown, manmade supe.


Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a H-U-G-E Natalie Bennett fan! I’m all about dark reads, the darker the better, and Natalie is the QUEEN of dark reads! So of course when I found out she was writing a dark paranormal story, I jumped all over it!  As always, Natalie did not disappoint!

Beauty and Rage is book one in the Broken Crown series. It’s a prelude so it moved along pretty quickly. The story is told from dual POV but mostly from Duvessa’s POV. This was the perfect intro into a whole new world! There’s magic and powers, Lycan’s, Vampires, and all kinds of different types of supernaturals.

53150547_626764737767539_3508435690339696640_nDuvessa once had it all as the Princess of Zenith. But one tragic night took everything from her. Now she’s the Queen and running for her life. There is a trader in the mix and she’s going to need help if she wants to save her people. The only problem is the only person that she can go to for help is the one that just may kill her himself.

53026281_2368045743259339_7186598730051616768_oReyes The King of Purgatory is the ultimate bad guy and a total badass. No one really knows what exactly Reyes and his 2 other brothers are, but whatever it is… they are powerful. Reyes is a cruel dictator and for some reason, he wants Duvessa for himself. So when she is “captured” and brought to him, he takes her in.

Even though there is definitely more to the story, Reyes has a soft spot (sorta, there’s crown being placed @confessionsnothing soft about that man!🔥) for Duvessa and not long after she arrives they become bonded. She’s drawn to him and with the bond, she wants him even more.

But Duvessa can’t accept that Reyes is ultimately killing her subjects, the very people she came to him to help her save, so she fights her attraction. There’s something inside of her that aches for him and when she’s with him things just seem so familiar, too familiar.

That ending… I literally woke my husband up at 2 A.M saying “NO WAY!” over and over again! I couldn’t believe that there wasn’t more and the way it ended…HOLY CRAP, I can’t wait to find out what Reyes next move is going to be now!

I can already tell that there is soo much more to this story then what meets the eye and soo many secrets that have yet to be revealed. We are left with a lot of questions and more confused by the end of it then we were at the beginning. Natalie did an excellent job of giving you just enough and then snatching it all away before you got to close to the answers. So needless to say I am impatiently waiting for the next book in the series, Beauty & Wreckage.

53022140_826948564337612_2450035626959962112_nThe secondary characters were intriguing, Duvessa’s two friends that she was “captured” with seem to be pairing off with Reye’s two brothers so that will be interesting to see how all that plays out, especially after that ending…

This book was freaking awesome! As per usual with a Natalie Bennett novel, it was filled with hot, almost violent sex, blood, and gore, and a whole lot of secrets and twists and they usually get darker the more the story evolves so I’m really excited to see where she’s going to go with this one!

Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
