The Beautiful and the Cursed (The Dispossessed) - Page Morgan The Beautiful and the Cursed was just as fantastic as I had hoped it would be.

In the world of The Beautiful and the Cursed gargoyles are real and so are demons. Ingrid and Gabby’s brother has gone missing and girls are being kidnapped then found dead in Paris. When the two sisters start digging around for any sign of their brother, they discover the world of gargoyles.

I’ll start with Ingrid and Gabby. I found Ingrid to be very interesting and I preferred her POV over the others’. I sometimes wished she had been a little more out spoken though especially when it came to her interactions with Luc. With that said, I don’t think of this as a bad thing. The book takes place during the 1800s but this aspect of her was just part of her personality.

Where Ingrid lacked this boldness, Gabby was over flowing with it. Honestly, Gabby got on my nerves at first. I was slightly annoyed I had to read her POV but as the book went on (and she continued to interact with Nolan) I came to really enjoy the way she just blurted out what she thought. It’s become slightly endearing for me.

And that leaves Luc—their personal, household gargoyle. I really enjoyed the beginnings of him coming around and becoming more human. I’m interested to get to know him. His lot in the gargoyle caste system was really interesting and I think ultimately fitting, especially with the book’s ending. If anything can be said of him, it’s that he’s loyal.

The writing was very refreshing for me. The entire books was well written. Every piece of the puzzle was presented at precisely the right moment, and everything was put together right at the end where it’s best suited. The world is very interesting and I hope Miss Morgan will delve deeper into it. Needless to say, I was blown away. And with how things ended, I can’t wait to see how things work out with Luc and his new (shall I say?) “friend.”
