Product description

Review

One of the most beautiful books I've read in a long time ― MJ Rose, new York Times bestselling author of the Reincarnationalist series

Moreno-Garcia fills her fantastic novel of manners with sumptuous language . . . Readers who enjoyed Mary Robinette Kowal's magical Regency series Glamourist Histories 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 DangereusesLibrary Journal

This novel of manners presents carefully crafted characters with nuanced motivations to rival any Thomas Hardy classic. Moreno-Garcia adeptly captures the ecstatic highs of first love and the bitter disappointments of first heartbreak. Hints of the paranormal and dashes of adventure and feminism are subtly interwoven, making for an unforgettable work

School Library Journal

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

I seriously loved everything about this from the gorgeous, lush prose to the tiny intimate moments of heartbreakMary Robinette Kowal, Hugo Award-winning author of the Glamourist Histories

'Straddling several genres with elegant intelligence . . . it's a slow-burn, stately novel about the magic of what it means to love, and love truly ― Tor.com

[An] elegant tale of hidden desires and misplaced amourBooklist

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 heartacheStrange Horizons

The Beautiful Ones demonstrates Moreno-Garcia's smart and colourful writing, with descriptions both sensory and sumptuous, and characters you will root for, even in their worst moments ― B&N Blog

An engaging fantasy-romance with a hint of magic . . . A very enjoyable read, with characters who felt real to me and about whom I found myself caring a great deal, and gripping to the very endBlue Book Balloon

The characters are wonderfully drawn, their desires and decisions believable. The setting is lightly sketched, but the places and the society are beautifully evokedNoble Bright

Moreno-Garcia writes such compelling characters that you are drawn in. This does not take chapters to grip, but mere paragraphs. This is a fantastic skill to have and one that I have witnessed in all her books to far

SFBook Reviews

A delicate, character-drive romance with a modern twist ― Choice

An evocative tale with a considerable emotional heft

Track of Words

[Silvia's] writing is elegant, rich in description and filled with characters that come vividly to lifeMuse’s Book Journal

Silvia has written a number of stunning novels and each is unique but this tops them allScorpio Book Dream

The Beautiful Ones is a perfect fantasy-historical-romance novel. Just what is needed for a reader looking to escape into a world of fantasy, decadence, and romance

REWRITE LONDON

This is a clever novel, well written, with all the nuances of 19th century high society on full display. The writing throughout this novel is divine. Poetic at times and infused with the atmosphere of the era . . . a classic storyline with a fresh and unique twist

THERESA SMITH WRITES

She writes splendidly and she creates remarkable characters. The Beautiful Ones is more than a romance, it's a cold study of wealthy societies and their impact on the people who belong to them

THE MIDDLE SHELF

A beautifully unique novel

LIBRARY LOOTER

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

The characters and the character development were fantastic. If you're in the mood for a Fantasy of Manners, or a romance novel with a dash of the speculative, then this is the novel you should pick up

JESSTICULATES

Full of sweeping drama, unrequited love, passionate devotion, and more than a few objects lifted into the air by the power of the mind, The Beautiful Ones is an entertaining and romantic read

THE NERD DAILY

Fast paced and instantly engaging, Not only do I highly recommend reading The Beautiful Ones, but also all of Silvia Moreno-Garcia's work. She is a master of genre and emotion

READER VORACIOUS

Lush, vividly described setting and well-rounded characters . . . masterful writing

YOUR TITA KATE

I love how Moreno-Garcia uses descriptive language to build tension and set moods

HEDWIG’S WORLD OF BOOKS

A smart, witty read with classic themes and a beautiful narrative flow

MANDY McHUGH

If you've ever thought that what Dangerous Liaisons really needed was more Force Adepts, this may very well be the book you've been waiting for

JAMES NICOLL REVIEWS

Whatever genre you call it, the story is compelling. I read it with the same rabid avidity with which I eat a bag of chips ― SMART BITCHES, TRASHY BOOKS

Moreno-Garcia writes such compelling characters that you are drawn in. Have you ever wanted to read something like Bridgerton, but with characters who can move objects with their minds?
