     After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris.

     In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures.

     And Grayson has gone missing.

     No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home.

     Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried.

My Stance:

     The Beautiful and Cursed was a tough decision on whether I wanted to jump into this book. It was compared to the Fallen series by Lauren Kate over on Barnes and Noble. and while I agree with their statement, I just was never a fan of the Fallen series. I spent some time looking this book over and over, rereading the synopsis over and over, trying to figure out if this would be a book that I would be into. While Ingrid seems like a fantastic character, I wonder if she's going to be different than Luce and just run headfirst into whatever comes her way.

     While that may sound great and all it doesn't leave that much time for building characters. and Ingrid doesn't seem like that deep of a character anyways. I am not sure, maybe that'll change when I get my hands on the novel, we'll see. But for the moment I am curious on what the gargoyles are. At first I thought I understood what the gargoyle lore was, but I have to be honest, upon further inspection I don't have the faintest clue what it is. I am keeping this book on my watch list and I may look at the reviews of this book, to see how its taken before really getting in too deep early on.
