New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns with the second instalment of her new sumptuous, sultry and romantic series, The Beautiful.

‘Singularly original’ Sabaa Tahir, author of An Ember in the Ashes

Forced to flee her home in Paris, Celine Rousseau hoped New Orleans would be a haven, where she could lead a new life in safety. But before long she was drawn into its dark underbelly by the enigmatic leader of the group known as La Cour des Lions, Sébastien Saint Germain.

Loving him has proved costly: still recovering from injuries sustained during a night she can’t quite remember, Celine’s dreams are troubled. And a chain of events has been set in motion that could unveil a truth about herself she is not ready to learn – and even lead to her demise.

Now cursed and changed forever, Sébastien, too, has not emerged unscathed, while the tenuous treaty between the Fallen and the Brotherhood has been broken beyond repair. War between the immortals seems imminent.

Forces hiding in the shadows have been patiently waiting for this moment. And just as Bastien and Celine begin to uncover the danger around them, they realise their love could tear them apart . . .
