The Belles

Dhonielle Clayton

Nominated for the 2019 Lodestar Award for best YA book, this is the dazzling New York Times instant bestseller, the next big thing in YA.       

Welcome to the dark decadence of Dhonielle Clayton’s sharp tale of beauty, obsession and magic…         

I AM A BELLE. I CONTROL BEAUTY.         

In the opulent world of Orleans, the people are born grey and damned, and only a Belle’s powers can make them beautiful. Camellia Beauregard wants to be the favourite Belle - the one chosen by the queen to tend to the royal family.           

But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes  clear that being the favourite is not everything she always dreamed it  would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia  soon learns that her powers may be far greater – and far darker – than  she ever imagined. When the queen asks Camellia to break the  rules she lives by to save the ailing princess, she faces an impossible  decision: protect herself and the way of the Belles, or risk her own  life, and change the world forever.
