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

They are the Beautiful Ones, Loisail’s most notable socialites, and this spring is Nina’s chance to join their ranks, courtesy of her well-connected cousin and his calculating wife. But the Grand Season has just begun and already Nina’s debut has gone disastrously awry. She has always struggled to control her telekinesis: the haphazard manifestations of her powers have long made her the subject of gossip – malicious neighbours even call her the Witch of Oldhouse.

But Nina’s life is about to change, for there is a new arrival in town: Hector Auvray, the renowned entertainer, who has used his own telekinetic talent to perform for admiring audiences around the world. Nina is dazzled by Hector, for he sees her not as a witch, but ripe with magical potential. Under his tutelage, Nina’s talent blossoms – as does her love for the great man.

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 charming tale of love and betrayal and the struggle between conformity and passion, set in a world where scandal is a razor-sharp weapon.

The Beautiful Ones:

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 Dangereuses ― Library 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

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

‘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 amour ― Booklist

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

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 end ― Blue 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 evoked ― Noble Bright
