Camellia Beauregard is a Belle. In the opulent world of Orléans, Belles are revered, for they control Beauty, and Beauty is a commodity coveted above all else. In Orléans, the people are born gray, they are born damned, and only with the help of a Belle and her talents can they transform and be made beautiful.
I started this novel thinking it would be girly fluff. I was wrong. Politics, competition, control and loyalties all come in to play here. I was gripped and couldn’t wait to finish it. Everlasting Rose is the sequel and I am ordering it now!
Get it at the LRC!
