Baking and the Beast

This book, more than anything, made me want all of the fresh baked bread they kept talking about. A solid listen, and my criticisms may be just my personal preferences.

Story:
I enjoyed this series for the most part as a fresh take on a familiar, beloved story. The third book doesn't feel quite as strong as the first two, although it's still good. It felt unnecessary that it's the longest of the three, with a fair amount of re-hashing of ground covered in the first two books. While the sense of the world is strong, we spend a lot of time focusing on preparations for the party without it always seeming to contribute to the plot or character development. While Benella's reluctance based on her trauma felt extremely valid, it felt to me as though that gets overshadowed by the far less believable, less mature, and less compelling notion of whether he likes her....or "likes her likes her". Still, the writing is strong, even when it veers a little angst-y, and kept me engaged wondering how things were going to develop.

Performance:
Another strong performance from Sierra Kline, particularly with the introduction of essentially an entirely new cast of characters for this final installment. I loved the voicing of Egrit. She provided a much needed fun, light-hearted break from some of the heavier sections.

A great ending.

Would you consider the audio edition of Devastation: A Beauty and the Beast Novel to be better than the print version?

I don't know if I'd say it was better than the print, but it is just as good as. The narrator did an amazing job at putting emotion in her voice, so it helped bring the book to life.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Devastation: A Beauty and the Beast Novel?

When Benella wakes up long enough to hear Alec beg for her to not leave him.


Have you listened to any of Sierra Kline’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Only the first two books in this series, so really there's nothing to compare it to. It's really good.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene mentioned above. She wakes up barely to hear him beg for her to not leave him, almost like he was begging God.
