Reviews

Praise for The Beautiful

"The Beautiful, which kicks off a new series, returns the vampire novel to popular form, evoking the style of Anne Rice and breathing fresh life into the genre." --Entertainment Weekly

"It's true: Vampires are back, and they're more seductive than ever." --Bustle

"Ahdieh brings New Orleans vibrantly to life, particularly when exploring the complicated racial and gender restrictions of high society through main and supporting characters of mixed-race origin. Sure to please fans of the author and of the vampire-romance genre." --Kirkus

"The first in a series, this mystery novel shines when it focuses on Celine and her struggle to fit into society while trying to be true to herself." --School Library Journal

"An action-packed third act and a final reveal will have readers grasping for the sequel. . . Vampires never stay dead for long, and best-selling Ahdieh's approach--part homage to the classics, part fresh-eyed revitalization--will intrigue all but the most committed skeptics." --Booklist

"Ahdieh's New Orleans is lushly atmospheric, permeating this series opener with an undercurrent of violence within a seductive underworld around Mardi Gras. . . Readers will champion Celine's wit and incredible grit--even surrounded by powerful, supernatural protectors, Celine fights for herself and those she loves. . . Fans will clamor for the continuation to this captivating volume." --Publishers Weekly
