Praise

Praise for The Damned:
A Seventeen.com’s Most Anticipated Pick for Summer 2020

Forbidden romance and harsh consequences set up this highly anticipated sequel that will leave you wanting so much more.” —Seventeen.com

Expansive worldbuilding…romantic…steamy…Decadent escapism.” —Kirkus Reviews

Forbidden love, sultry romance, and clashing immortal factions fill this sequel . . . [and] will keep readers engaged…For fans of vampire love stories.” —School Library Journal

I loved this book. Beautiful, tortured Bastien…The stellar worldbuilding/the lurking presence of the Otherworld and V A M P I R E S. A clear win.” —Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Wolves
 
A worthy sequel that builds upon the world set up in book one and takes our characters to far darker places than before.” —Culturess

The Damned continues the thematic elegance and glamour found in The Beautiful and manages to take it up another level . . . There is a deep and seductive ambience that weaves throughout the story and leaves you feeling like you are reading the novel while lounging in a richly appointed New Orleans drawing room….The supernatural world that Ahdieh builds in this series is nothing short of fantastic.” —The Nerd Daily

Praise for The Beautiful:

The Beautiful, which kicks off a new series, returns the vampire novel to popular form, evoking the style of Anne Rice and breathing fresh life into the genre.” —Entertainment Weekly

“It’s true: Vampires are back, and they’re more seductive than ever.” —Bustle

“Ahdieh brings New Orleans vibrantly to life, particularly when exploring the complicated racial and gender restrictions of high society through main and supporting characters of mixed-race origin. Sure to please fans of the author and of the vampire-romance genre.” —Kirkus

“The first in a series, this mystery novel shines when it focuses on Celine and her struggle to fit into society while trying to be true to herself.” —School Library Journal

“An action-packed third act and a final reveal will have readers grasping for the sequel. . . Vampires never stay dead for long, and best-selling Ahdieh’s approach—part homage to the classics, part fresh-eyed revitalization—will intrigue all but the most committed skeptics.” —Booklist

Darkly glamorous . . . Compelling.” —The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“An incredibly ornate, lush New Orleans; characters who imprint themselves on your memory forever; a story that is nail-biting and swoony and satisfying and tense ALL AT THE SAME TIME. And of course . . . VAMPIRES.” —Sabaa Tahir, New York Times bestselling author of An Ember in the Ashes

“It’s intoxicating. The Beautiful has that decadent, slow-moving horror that feels like a dream slipping to nightmare.” —Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Wolves
