The Dispossessed

The Beautiful and the Cursed

Publisher: Doubleday Canada
Now in paperback, The Beautiful and the Cursed is the first book in a new trilogy about beautiful sisters, impossible romance, dark secrets, and sinister forces. 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 the gargoyle lore set in a dark, compelling world.
     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 and move to Paris with her mother and younger sister, Gabby.
     In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house her twin brother Grayson found for them isn't a house at all. It's a creepy old abbey with a roof lined with 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.
     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 it's up to her and Gabby to find him before all hope is lost.
     Only the path to Grayson is more dangerous than Ingrid could ever have imagined.

Praise for Page Morgan:
 • "Unlike any YA books I've recently read, The Beautiful and the Cursed is a spellbinding YA fantasy rich in Gothic lore, fueled by forbidden romance, and given an original mythology that kept me turning pages and left me wanting more." --Mundie Moms
 • "I absolutely loved this book. Who would have thought that gargoyles could be so cool and incredibly irresistible? Not only was the action and the whole world of demons and angels really enticing, but the added romance was the perfect touch to make this story impossible to put down." --Reading With Style (5/5 stars)
