Publisher's Summary

With a price on her head, the evil Queen Sophia out for blood, and no idea who to trust, Camellia Beaureguard, the former favorite Belle, must race against time to find the ailing Princess Charlotte, who has disappeared without a trace. Sophia's imperial forces will stop at nothing to keep Camille, her sister, Edel, and her loyal guard, Remy, from returning Charlotte to the palace and her rightful place as queen. 

With the help of an underground resistance movement called the Iron Ladies - a society that rejects beauty treatments entirely - and the backing of alternative newspaper The Spider's Web, Camille uses her powers, her connections, and her cunning to outwit her greatest nemesis, Sophia, and attempt to restore peace to Orleans. But enemies lurk in the most unexpected places, forcing Camille to decide just how much she's willing to sacrifice to save her people. 

A Booklist pick of the day. A Tor.com reviewers' choice of this winter's upcoming young-adult SFF books.

couldn't stop listening!

Rosie Jones gives such a characteristic performance and brings to life the self absorbed over indulgent populace that Dhonielle Clayton so beautifully created

Loved the first one, this one was ok.

I really enjoyed the first audiobook in the series. I couldn't stop listening to it, and I was so excited for this one. The reader's voice is beautiful. This one took me months to listen to because it didn't keep me as interested at all. This is an extremely minor spoiler, but Princess Sophia was much less present in this book, and after listening to this one, I realize her absence left a huge hole in the book. It got interesting to me when she was active. This one was just ok.

Mystery Magic and Love

Interesting storyline with mystery and magic. It is a commentary on our society's obsession with beauty.

Interested to see how the trilogy ends

Met Dhonielle at an author visit at TC Williams HS in Alexandria. She was a great speaker with the teens showcasing her chops as an educator with great classroom management. I was lucky to get a signed copy of first book for my daughter. My kids and I listened to it too. We loved the first one. We LOVED Rosie Jones' narration. She skillfully pulls off an array of characters.

Eagerly awaited the release of this one. Loved Rosie and my kids and I couldn't wait to finish it to see where things are going.

The first is our favorite of the two but this one doesn't dissapoint. Bring on Book 3!
