Praise for Wild Beauty:"Part mystery, part love story, this evocative, lush novel is a delight for sophisticated readers." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"McLemore's mythology is rich, and the heart-rending conclusion thrills and gratifies." --Publishers Weekly "A story filled with vibrant characters that resonate, and plots that will pull you in with equal parts magic and mystery. . . . It's a refreshing combination of coming-of-age romance and with family legacy and feminine strength, by a writer who has made a commitment to bringing authentically complex Latinx and queer voices into the mainstream." --Bustle "Anna-Marie McLemore writes words that are meant to be savored. And this lush, stunning novel of love and magic definitely demands your attention while capturing your heart." --Paste magazine "A grab-you-by-the-throat tale of love and family. McLemore's storytelling is nothing short of riveting." --Roshani Chokshi, New York Times-bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen
