Belle Noir Pletely destroyed No Loyal Knight and True – In this modern day retelling of Tennyson’s The Lady of Shalott a boyhood encounter with an odd girl who lives in a tower alters the course of Ryan’s destiny Belle Noir – Young Jane flees from her abusive father into a seemingly perfect marriage only to find that the darkest hearts This review can be found on my blog The MisAdventures of a Twenty Something Year Old Girl at the end of AugustI had high hopes for this book It sounded amazing and had a gorgeous cover I was super glad when this book lived up to my high hopes and oh the feelsHow gorgeous is that cover? I think it portrays the feelings of this book uite well I love the creepy yet mystical feel of the coverI also really love the title It really drew me in and really wanted to make me find out about this book The title makes me think there's some sort of mystery behind itThe worlds Miss Zavora creates for each story are done so well Each story's world grips you and pulls you in so you can experience everything each story has in store for you The descriptions of the setting in each story is done so superbly Miss Zavora does a than excellent job of describing everythingThe pacing for this book is done fantastically just like everything else in this book I thought that I'd be bored with some of the stories but that wasn't the case I couldn't find out what was going to happen uick enough This book was my candy and I couldn't wait until I could eat it all The only story where I felt the pacing slowed a bit was the story called Mirabilis I just felt that there was a bit too much story that we didn't need to read However the writing wasn't bad so I feel like this was just a personal thingI've read a few books that were retellings of other classic stories but none uite so good as this The plots of each story take on their own personality instead of just sounding like the classic story their about in the author's own words We all know the story of Beauty and the Beast but Miss Zavora makes this story her own with her different takes on it I have to admit that I wasn't familiar with The Lady of Shallot but again the author presents her amazing take on this storyThe characters felt very much life like and very 3 D like They each had their own special personality and not one of the characters ever felt the same as a character in another story Personally my favorite character was Beauty but they were all amazing It's as if Miss Zavora added a touch of magic to make these characters jump off the page and come to lifeThe dialogue was written beautifully and flowed so naturally Based on the dialogue it's apparent that Miss Zavora was born to write magically The words that I read just worked together so beautifully and if I had even have the talent that Ava Zavora does I would be able to do better justice to this work of art I don't remember any swear words but there is a story dealing with sexual abuse just to forewarn youOverall Belle Noir Tales of Love and Magic is a book that I can't praise highly enough Ava Zavora is one of the most talented authors if all of her other works are as beautifully written as this is Belle Noir has everything a great book should have great writing a fantastic plot well written characters and fantastic pacing The book is a work of art and should be treasured Also is it possible to be highly in love with a book? Because I am so much in love with this oneI'd recommend this book although it says 18 to those aged 16 who are after a book that is magically written

Zavora's storytelling is luminous The stories five in all range from gothic fantasy to literary but with fairy tale threads running throughout Some are intense than others contrasting vividly beautiful prose with uncomfortable themes that stayed with me days after I read them Transfigured is the sample I read turns the beauty and the beast fairy tale inside out and upside down and ends in a very memorable astonishing noteNo Loyal Knight and True I'm trying to think if I've read any other Lady of Shalott based stories and I'm coming up blank This one revived my interest in the poem which I read a long time ago Just when I thought it was headed one way it completely headed somewhere else Belle Noir I thought what the author did in Transfigured was impressive but Belle Noir was an unexpected stop in my tracks story that turns the fairy tale on its head yet againGrotesue This gargoyle themed story is the perfect example of a magical multi layered tale that looks to be one way in the beginning but ended up being delicately beautifulMirabilis At first glance this looks to be a traditional fairly straighforward retelling but again as in the others the author managed to do something different and still provide a happy endingIt's hard to pick which one is my favorite as they all have their strengths It would have to be a tie between Transfigured and No Loyal Knight and TrueWhile I see that the author has written some romance novels which I probably won't read as they are not my thing I eagerly look forward to of her fantasy stories

Ava Zavora ¿ Belle Noir Kindle

Enter a world of dark beautyThis collection of enchanting and disturbing stories ranging from fantasy to speculative fiction will leave you spellbound Includes retellings of Beauty and the BeastTransfigured The Beast has changed back to a handsome prince yet Beauty finds out that although some curses may be broken they are never com This slender collection of five short stories is familiar three of the five stories were inspired by Beauty and the Beast and darkly bittersweet More in the Grimm vein pun than Disney Zavora leaves the reader feeling uneasy and discomforted which is a surprisingly fun state to be inEach story lingered with me and frankly got under my skin although I will say the titular story 'Belle Noir' is the one I really can't shake The opening story 'Transfigured' is the most fairy tale ish in nature while 'No Loyal Knight and True' has the opening of a crime thriller but takes a delightful direction toward Lady of Shallot 'Belle Noir' is just straight up creepy while 'Grotesue' the only story not specifically based on a fairy tale I believe is moody and modern 'Mirabilis' is of a fantasy but I was immediately captivated by the world Zavora wrought and I would love a novel about this placeour heroine  The volume closes with a copy of Tennyson's poem 'The Lady of Shalott'  Zavora includes an 'Afterword' where she talks about some aspect of each story a rather fun inclusion I wouldn't mind in every volume of short stories I read  For those who love geeky extras Zavora has a video playlist for each of her storiesWhile the book blurb has an 18 'mature' warning in it there's nothing particularly 'adult' in the stories and I had to wrack my brain for what might be construed as 'mature' There are two moments perhaps in different stories that are vaguely disturbing but no so than anything you'd find in any other novel And it's a brief allusion nothing graphic so don't let the warning scare you off This isn't erotica or even sexytimes   Dark punchy and fun Belle Noir is perfect for when you're in the mood for a beach read that isn't cheery Those of you who want something dark and fast for either RIP or Dewey's Readathon in October consider this collection  And of course if you like fairy tales retold give these a try
