Available May 14th
Add to Goodreads
The (US) Blurb:

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series and Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy will devour The Beautiful and the Cursed, a wholly original interpretation of gargoyle lore.

It was bizarre and inexplicable, but after it happened no one spoke of it and Ingrid Waverly was forced to leave her life in London behind. She had to trade a world full of fancy dresses and society events for Paris with her mother and younger sister, Gabby.

In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, thehouse her twin brother Grayson found for them isn't a house at all. It's an abbey. A creepy, old abbey with a roof lined in stone gargoyles that one could almost mistake for living, breathing creatures.

And Grayson is missing.

Yet no one seems to be concerned about Grayson's whereabouts save for Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant who has some secrets of his own.
There's one secret about the city that he can't keep hidden, though. There's a murderer on the loose. And every day Grayson is missing means that there's less of a chance he's alive.

Ingrid is sure her twin isn't dead--she can feel it deep in her soul--but she knows he's in grave danger, and that it's up to her and Gabby to find him before all hope is lost.

Only the path to him is twisted—and more deadly than she could ever imagine.

UK Cover
The (UK) Blurb:

Ingrid Waverley is a young woman to be reckoned with. Faced with her brother's mysterious disappearance after an abrupt move to Paris, she is determined to discover what has happened to him. Soon she and her sister Gabriella are drawn into a Parisian underworld more terrifying than they could ever have imagined, but watching over them are two impossible (and impossibly handsome) young men. Luc is a 'Dispossessed', an ancient gargoyle whose sworn duty it is to protect the humans who inhabit his abbey. Nolan has secrets of his own too. He is a member of the Alliance - a shadowy group dedicated to keeping Paris safe from the demonic forces that threaten to destroy it.

Secrets, danger and hidden powers stalk the girls in this beautifully imagined paranormal romance that will keep readers gripped from beginning to end - and one thing is for sure - you'll never look at a gargoyle in the same way again...

About Page Morgan:

Page Morgan has been intrigued by les grotesques ever since she came across an old, black-and-white photograph of a Notre Dame gargoyle keeping watch over the city of Paris. The gargoyle mythologies she went on to research fed her imagination, and she became inspired to piece together her own story and mythology for these complex stone figures. Page lives in New England with her husband and their three children.


So peeps, which cover are you liking better? I know which one has me wanting to read it.  The other one has the opposite affect.  What are your thoughts?  Leave me a comment.


  1. With a cover like that! And.. Gargoyles! This is going straight onto my shelfari wishlist

  2. I like the US cover. The colors are pretty.

  3. The US cover is to die for!! I love the colors and it's just so pretty!! I actually do really like the UK cover too. The US one is more appealing, but I have a feeling that the UK cover fits the story better.

  4. The US cover is gorgeous! It looks magical and beautiful to me. I love the synopsis as well! I can't wait to read this! It's on my TBR :)

  8. Wow, the UK cover makes it look like a completely different kind of book. Personally, I am a fan of the original cover. Before they changed the font to these block letters. Still gonna read this book because GARGOYLE’S?!?

  9. I am going to be the odd one out and say that I actually prefer the uk cover. I don't know what it is about the US cover that turns me off, but I really don't like it! I know, I'm odd!
