A Great and Terrible Beauty was a very interesting read. The whole series has a very dark, creepy feel to it. Yet it was completely enjoyable to read. The story draws you in almost immediately. There is so much to discover in these books and the characters are developed very well. If you’re looking for a series of YA novels that are are Victorian, dark and mysterious, I would recommend these books. Perfect gothic reads for a nice, rainy afternoon.
