Product description

Review

"Moreno-Garcia fills her fantastic novel of manners with sumptuous language...Readers who enjoyed Mary Robinette Kowal's Glamourist Histories magical Regency series will be particularly enthralled by the genuine emotions evoked in the course of the unsustainable love triangle." - Publishers Weekly

"Overflowing with delicious melodrama ... a great fit for fans of the 18th-century French classic Les Liaisons Dangereuses." - Library Journal

"This elegant tale of hidden desires and misplaced amour will appeal to fans of historical fantasy." - Booklist

"The Beautiful Ones is an elegantly paced novel that moves its characters into place with ease, with careful attention paid to ways a word or a moment can change an entire life." - Book Page

"Many of Moreno-Garcia's characters do terrible, despicable things to hurt each other and profit personally in this book, but that's what keeps them and the narrative interesting. It's a slow-burn, stately novel about the magic of what it means to love, and love truly." - Tor.com

"Readers who enjoy light speculative elements, historical fantasy, romance, and beautiful prose will find a trove. Straddling several genres with elegant intelligence, The Beautiful Ones is both an easy read and a fulfilling one." - Locus

"This is the third novel I read by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and I loved all of them in different ways: each in a different genre by a chameleon writer with incredible writing skills." - Kirkus

"The Beautiful Ones is a hauntingly lovely book, romantic and crushing by turns, touched with magic on every level." - Vancouver Sun

"The whole book is a magnificent tangle of unspoken words and feelings. Nothing is tepid; everything, even the absence of feelings, is charged with danger and heartache. " - Strange Horizons

"Certain people in the world of The Beautiful Ones have telekinetic abilities, but while these abilities do play an important part in the story, this is not a story of magic unless it's the magic of the human heart." - FantasyLiterature.com

"I never quite knew how the story was going to play out with betrayal going on, misunderstandings happening and heartbreak occurring. Overall, I definitely recommend this one." - Literary Dust
