Light a Candle For the Beast

Light a Candle For the Beast by Echo Shea

If you’ve ever been caught in a riptide, pulled down into the water, then you know me. Or, more accurately, what I’m like when I’m angry. 

Delia was beautiful, smart, and kind. He wasn’t. He said he loved her, but he didn’t know what love was. He was manipulative and cruel—more than a thief. A beast. 

All she wanted was a rose… 

These are the words on my sister’s grave. Her sadness, her obsession, forever a reminder I didn’t--couldn’t save her. 

I’m not vindictive or cruel. I’m simply as the river--my memory is winding and my reach is long. I watched him steal her beauty, her essence. Watched him become a beast. He thought he'd get away with it, thought he'd go free. 

I lay a rose upon my sister's grave. 

Light a candle for the beast.

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.*
I find it hard to rate this book. For the first half, I was confused I couldn't understand really what was going on. When I finally did, the book was halfway over, and it's not even a long read. I feel the author could have made this a little longer to better explain what was going on. I would have loved to have a clearer understanding of what was going on. By the end of the book, I was wanting it to not end. But it did.

On one hand I love that it captivated me, on the other, it didn't interest me until halfway through, so I'm going with a 3 rating on this book. It wasn't bad, but wasn't great either.
