I finished Strangely Beautiful by Leanna Renee Hieber a little over a month ago and I just have to say, it is amazing. Both parts are wonderfully written, well thought out, and all around, pleasant to read. You immediately fall in love with the main five characters, Alexi, Rebecca, Michael, Elijah, and Josephine, with the beginning of the book where the five of them meet each other in their now inner sanctum, long story short they meet a god, and then wait for “The Prophecy.” Move forward in time and we meet Percy, a school girl from a small convent that has an amazing secret. Everyone is well written and except for the “Darkness” or Lucille in a matter of speaking, but they aren’t really in the story much anyway. I’m not really one for romance, but I think Leanna writes it really well and organically. If you like the supernatural, Victorian, romance and adult fantasy rather than young adult, I would definitely recommend Strangely Beautiful. 10/10 would read again.
