‘Vampires are back, and they’re more seductive than ever’ Bustle, on The Beautiful

The much-anticipated third entry in New York Times bestselling author Renee Ahdieh’s sumptuous and thrilling series, The Beautiful.

Odette is facing the final death. The Court of the Lions have done everything they can to save her but have failed. A healer from the Sylvan Vale could help her, but only Arjun Desai, as a half fey, can cross the boundary between realms.

Arjun despises the Sylvan Vale, and in return, it despises him. But knowing it could save Odette, he returns, leaving the mirrored tare between the two worlds open and setting the stage for both love and war.

It’s mere days until Pippa Montrose is to wed Phoebus Devereux and become a member of his well-heeled family, offering salvation to her own. But Celine is missing. Pippa has no idea where her best friend has gone, but she’s certain it’s in the company of Sébastien Saint Germain and that Arjun can lead her to them.

With the help of Eloise, the daughter of a powerful sorceress, Pippa discovers Arjun’s gateway and slips through in search of her friend. But what she discovers on the other side is a dangerous, duplicitous world full of mischief and magic she doesn’t understand . . .

New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns to enthrall readers with the third book in her seductive, atmospheric fantasy quartet.
