The Beautiful and the Cursed

By: Page Morgan

BOOK TALK

Young girls from affluent families have been disappearing off the streets of Paris at an alarming rate. So, when Ingrid Waverly and her sister, Gabby, accompanying their mother to the ruins of the Paris abbey they are planning to renovate, home doesn’t look so sweet. It doesn’t help that Ingrid’s twin brother, Greyson, who was sent ahead has disappeared as well. Despite signs to the contrary, Ingrid is certain he’s alive. And so is Luc, the handsome yet mysterious servant who insists on keeping a watch out for her. Ingrid takes advantage of Luc’s knowledge and protection to forge ahead to find her brother, but soon finds that while the streets of Paris are filled with dangerous creatures, it’s what’s underneath that’s truly frightening.
