So I read this right after I finished Darkness Becomes her and I can honestly say this one was a lot better to me. I did like the 1st one but there were to many instances where Ari got on my nerves. A Beautiful Evil had enough action in it to make me want to just jump straight to the end but I was also more wrapped up in the characters this time. I do think it was paced a little fast, but I don't know if I can honestly log that as a complaint. Sebastian just keep getting yummier by the page. I was completely thrown by all the mystery surrounding Violet and I hope the next book covers that, whatever it is I know it's gonna be juice. I don't know how much more of the series there will be but I'm excited to keep reading what comes next.
