For fans of Lauren Kate's Fallen series comes the exciting conclusion to the trilogy that includes The Beautiful and the Cursed and The Lovely and the Lost. The Waverly sisters must save themselves before all is lost.
Since the Waverlys arrived in Paris, the streets have grown more fearsome by the day. As Ingrid learns to master her lectrux gift, she must watch Axia's power grow strong enough to extend beyond her Underneath hive. By all indications, the fallen angel's Harvest is near-and the timing couldn't be worse.
Targeted by vengeful gargoyles, Gabby has been exiled to London for her own protection. Meanwhile, the gargoyle castes are in disarray, divided between those who want Luc to lead them and those who resent him and his fondness for humans. The Alliance is crumbling from the inside as well, its members turning against one another, and possibly against the Waverlys, too.
Axia has promised that the world will burn. And now, unable to trust the Alliance, separated from Luc, Gabby, and her twin, Grayson, Ingrid is left to face the demon uprising alone.
Gabby returns home to England with Nolan and Rory to keep an eye on her. She continues to train and hunt demons even though she really shouldn’t. She doesn’t care about society and the fact the her once lovely face is now marred. Ingrid thinks she has moved on from Luc and with Marco as her new protector, she still continues to thwart him and keeping her safe. There is impending war between the underworld, gargoyles, and humans as each combine with their own resources and Ingrid and Grayson are at the center of it all.
Ingrid thinks she is strong enough to fend for herself and finds herself easily taken by evil. Her feelings are torn between Vander and Luc. They both feel they are to blame when anything happens to her. Marco, is supposed to be guarding her, but for some reason I just don’t trust him. Grayson has been working with Chelle and is trying to redeem himself for what he feels is a cursed affliction for blood. It seems everyone is struggling with something.
If you have been keeping with the Gargoyles, you must read this one! I really enjoyed the battles, star-crossed loves (several!) and the sass of Gabby. If anyone stole my heart it was Gabby! Evil versus good, even when it is streaked with gray, always is a good read. Parents: some violence, some kisses, and I would rate this one PG. This trilogy is a must for horror and paranormal fans that like a historical twist. Sorry, no ending giveaway here, just trust me that you will be surprised!
I’m the author of The Beautiful & The Cursed, a young adult novel about two sisters who, on their mission to find their missing brother, discover a veiled world of gargoyles and demons in the city of Paris. I’m currently writing the second and third novels in this series, which saps most of my brainpower. I live in New England with my husband and our three children, along with our ancient dog and arrogant cat, quickly sap the rest of it. I accept virtual gifts of coffee, chocolate, and cupcakes.
