Beauty Awakened was a pretty good read. I did find Koldo and Nicola's story to be a little slow moving at times though. Koldo was a very closed off person, so it took awhile for me to really get invested in his story. I also found the ending to be a little confusing, I'm not quite sure how Nicola ended up being what she was. I really liked Axel! I'll be looking forward to his book for sure!
