The much anticipated sequel to the breathtaking New York Times bestseller THE WRATH AND THE DAWN.
I am surrounded on all sides by a desert. A guest, in a prison of sand and sun. My family is here. And I do not know whom I can trust.
In a land on the brink of war, Shahrzad has been torn from the love of her husband Khalid, the Caliph of Khorasan. She once believed him a monster, but his secrets revealed a man tormented by guilt and a powerful curse-one that might keep them apart forever. Reunited with her family, who have taken refuge with enemies of Khalid, and Tariq, her childhood sweetheart, she should be happy. But Tariq now commands forces set on destroying Khalid's empire. Shahrzad is almost a prisoner caught between loyalties to people she loves. But she refuses to be a pawn and devises a plan.
While her father, Jahandar, continues to play with magical forces he doesn't yet understand, Shahrzad tries to uncover powers that may lie dormant within her. With the help of a tattered old carpet and a tempestuous but sage young man, Shahrzad will attempt to break the curse and reunite with her one true love.

'A potent page-turner of intrigue and romance' Publishers Weekly
'Don't be surprised if the pages melt away and you find yourself racing through warm, golden sands or drinking spiced wine in cool marble courtyards. This is an intoxicating gem of a story. You will fall in love, just as I did.' Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series and The Young Elites
New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns with a sumptuous, sultry and romantic new series set in 19th century New Orleans where vampires hide in plain sight.
In 1872, New Orleans is a city ruled by the dead. But to seventeen-year-old Celine Rousseau, New Orleans is a safe haven after she's forced to flee her life as a dressmaker in Paris. Taken in by the sisters of the Ursuline convent in the middle of the carnival season, Celine is quickly enraptured by the vibrant city, from its music to its fancy soirées and even its danger. She becomes embroiled in the city's glitzy underworld, known as La Cour des Lions, after catching the eye of the group's enigmatic leader, Sébastien Saint Germain.
When the body of one of the girls from the convent is found in Sébastien's own lair--the second dead girl to turn up in recent weeks--Celine battles her attraction to Sébastien and suspicions about his guilt along with the shame of her own horrible secret.
After a third murder, New Orleans becomes gripped by the terror of a serial killer on the loose--one who has now set Celine in his sights. As the murderer stalks her, Celine finally takes matters into her own hands, only to find herself caught in the midst of an age-old feud between the darkest creatures of the night, where the price of forbidden love is her life.
At once a sultry romance and a decadent, thrilling mystery, master storyteller Renée Ahdieh embarks on her most potent fantasy series yet.
'Vampires are back, and they're more seductive than ever' Bustle, on The Beautiful
The much-anticipated third entry in New York Times bestselling author Renee Ahdieh's sumptuous and thrilling series, The Beautiful.
Odette is facing the final death. The Court of the Lions have done everything they can to save her but have failed. A healer from the Sylvan Vale could help her, but only Arjun Desai, as a half fey, can cross the boundary between realms.
Arjun despises the Sylvan Vale, and in return, it despises him. But knowing it could save Odette, he returns, leaving the mirrored tare between the two worlds open and setting the stage for both love and war.
It's mere days until Pippa Montrose is to wed Phoebus Devereux and become a member of his well-heeled family, offering salvation to her own. But Celine is missing. Pippa has no idea where her best friend has gone, but she's certain it's in the company of Sébastien Saint Germain and that Arjun can lead her to them.
With the help of Eloise, the daughter of a powerful sorceress, Pippa discovers Arjun's gateway and slips through in search of her friend. But what she discovers on the other side is a dangerous, duplicitous world full of mischief and magic she doesn't understand . . .
New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns to enthrall readers with the third book in her seductive, atmospheric fantasy quartet.
Following the events of The Beautiful, Sébastien Saint Germain is now cursed and forever changed. The treaty between the Fallen and the Brotherhood has been broken, and war between the immortals seems imminent. The price of loving Celine was costly.
But Celine has also paid a high price for loving Bastien. Still recovering from injuries sustained during a night she can't quite remember, her dreams are troubled. And she doesn't know she has inadvertently set into motion a chain of events that could lead to her demise and unveil a truth about herself she's not ready to learn.
Forces hiding in the shadows have been patiently waiting for this moment. And just as Bastien and Celine begin to uncover the danger around them, they learn their love could tear them apart.
The Damned, Renée's latest installment in The Beautiful series is just as decadent, thrilling, and mysterious as her last, as she continues her most potent fantasy series yet.
«Ahdieh le da vida a una vibrante Nueva Orleans, mientras explora las restricciones raciales y de género en la alta sociedad a través de los ojos de personajes de distintos orígenes étnicos.»
En 1872, Nueva Orleans es una ciudad donde reinan los muertos. Pero para Celine Rousseau es un lugar seguro donde refugiarse después de verse obligada a huir de su vida como modista en París. Las hermanas del convento de las Ursulinas la reciben en plena temporada de carnaval, y Celine rápidamente queda embelesada con todos los secretos de la vibrante ciudad: desde la música hasta las veladas elegantes, e incluso el peligro. Pronto, se ve envuelta en el deslumbrante submundo de Nueva Orleans, conocido como La Cour des Lions, cuando cautiva la atención del enigmático líder del grupo, Sébastien Saint Germain.
Cuando el cuerpo de una de las chicas del convento es encontrado en la propia guarida de Sébastien —la segunda chica muerta que ha aparecido en las últimas semanas—, Celine debe luchar contra su atracción por el joven y las sospechas de su responsabilidad en dicha muerte; además debe lidiar con la vergüenza que siente por el secreto que oculta.
Después de un tercer asesinato, el caos comienza a reinar en la ciudad, ya que todo parece indicar que hay un asesino en serie suelto.
