The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker (Strangely Beautiful, #1) by Leanna Renee Hieber

Into the Wild

Read The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker (Strangely Beautiful, #1) Online Free - What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy? Hidden in the dark heart of Victorian London, the Romanesque school was dreadfully imposing, a veritable fortress, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met its powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadows, of the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She saw simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow white hair, pearlescent skin and uncanny gift. This arched stone doorway was a portal to a new life, to an education far from what could be had at a convent -- and it was an invitation to an intimate yet dangerous dance at the threshold of life and death...

The title is a misnomer. I would have titled this The Twistingly Tangential Tale of Miss Percy Parker instead. Good lord, how this story wandered. I'm going to be quoting a lot from this book in this review. The quotes are too priceless not to be used, and they give a pretty good impression of t...

This is the only book of mine I'll ever rate, and while it won't be the best book I ever write, I'll remain particularly partial to it. After a decade-long journey to publication, my debut remains the book of my heart.

Cross genre books are a hard sell. And unless the author has the skill to pull it off, the book will not find a readership. When it comes to The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker, this could have been a problem. This novel is a Victorian Gothic Paranormal Ghost filled tale with romanc...

What a unique and interesting story! I don't read that many fantasy books, so this was a big departure for me. I liked it, but things that were new and interesting to me might be common in the genre. I'm just not familiar enough with it to say for certain. I really liked getting to see so many dif...

There aren’t enough words the Internet Thesaurus dictionary can describe for how ‘in-hearts’ I am with The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker. This book was a re-imagined homage to the Victorian romantics such as Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte mixed with the supernatural aspects of S...

"The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker" is one of the strangest 'romances' I've read in a long time. Author Leanna Renee Hieber has penned a tale worthy of the title 'gothic' and just about as understandable. Miss Percy Parker is an albino. Abandoned as an infant on the steps of a conv...

Twilight for adults? I felt I'd scream if a had to read about the hero's good looks and rich voice one more time. And perhaps Ms Hieber should employ an editor or proof-reader to help her get her "thee"s and "thou"s right and find a balance between quaintly historic, badly done Irish brogue, and...

I desperately wanted to like this book because I am all out of series to read. I read a glowing review and double checked goodreads before I purchased this ebook. I should know that anytime a book has a rating lower than the 3.9ish range, I should never read it. The writing was not terrible, but...

I am not sure what to say that won't sound trite. I loved this book. Utterly loved it. It was a beautiful, lyrical, haunting tale that was remarkably well told. I don't think I have ever read anything quite like it. The weaving and layering of mythological elements was done so skillfully... with...

I'm not exactly sure what star rating to give to this book; three stars seems at once too generous and not generous enough. Perhaps it would help to simplify and break my review down into what I like and what I don't like about the book. What I Like: The gothic spin on a traditional Victorian Lond...
