Beautiful Ones

«This book was spectacular. I didn't want to finish reading this book too fast because I wanted to savour it as long as I could»

CAFEYRE

'Whenever I want to read a book I know will be good, I go to Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Her genres are ever changing, her ability to take on a wild story each time is incredible' TAYLOR JENKINS-REID, author of Daisy Jones and the Six

'I seriously loved everything about this from the gorgeous, lush prose to the tiny intimate moments of heartbreak' MARY ROBINETTE KOWAL, Hugo Award-winning author of the Glamourist Histories

'One of the most beautiful books I've read in a long time' M.J. ROSE, author of the Reincarnationalist series

From the New York Times bestselling author of Mexican Gothic comes a sweeping historical romance, perfect for everyone who wishes Bridgerton had just a dash of magic . . .

The Grand Season has just begun and already Nina's debut among Loisail's most notable socialites has gone disastrously awry.

Nina has always struggled to control her gift of telekinesis, which has earnt her the nickname the Witch of Oldhouse. When Hector Auvray, the renowned entertainer, arrives in town, Nina is dazzled. He too has a telekinetic talent and sees her not as a witch, but ripe with magical potential.

Under his tutelage, Nina's talent blossoms, as does her love for him. But great romances are for fairy-tales, and Hector is hiding a secret bitter truth from Nina - and himself - that threatens their courtship.

The Beautiful Ones is a sweeping tale of love and betrayal and the struggle between conformity and passion.

This novel of manners presents carefully crafted characters with nuanced motivations to rival any Thomas Hardy classic.
