The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan is a gripping Gothic tale filled with gargoyles, demons, love and the dark streets of 19th century Paris. Ingrid and Gabby move to Paris to help their mother establish a new art gallery. Grayson, Ingrid’s twin brother, moved a few weeks earlier to find them an estate for their new business and house, but once the girls and their mother arrive they discover that he is missing. Determined to track their brother down, Ingrid and Gabby soon find themselves in a world filled with creatures that they once believed were only in fairy tales.
I loved this book and can’t wait to start The Lovely and the Lost. Morgan’s world is dark and gritty and so much fun to get lost in. You can feel the dark creature’s presence as you follow the girls into the bowels of Paris. I really liked that she gave Ingrid and Gabby full personalities rather than just focusing on one sister. Even though Gabby doesn’t have the same talents as Ingrid, we discover that she is just as fierce and strong as her sister. The gargoyle mythology was so refreshing! Finally a new creature to fall in love with, and yes Luc is sure to steal your heart. Morgan created a unique series that has me entranced and excited to keep following. This is sure to capture the attention of any YA paranormal fan.
