The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

Synopsis:
After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris.

In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures.

And Grayson has gone missing.

No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home.

Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried

Review:
Ingrid is a strong and brave young woman. And she’s the only one actively looking for clues into her brother’s disappearance. Her younger sister Gabby is a bit naïve. Morgan’s unique fantasy world of demons and gargoyles is dark and fascinating. And the characters are rich and engaging.

The Beautiful and the Cursed is the first in a powerful new young adult series. This debut is a captivating read full of suspense, drama, and romance. Events culminate to a big, exciting finale that doesn’t disappoint. I look forward to the next in this breathtaking series.
