I rated this book a five out of five Stars. I love how Dhonielle had us guessing at every turn about who is really telling the truth. I love how Camille is so curious and doesn’t give up. Even when she is being threatened by people she still continues to want to help. There is so much mystery and intrigue throughout this book, that it makes you wonder who will be the next person to be hurt. People are falling in love with People that they should not be. But throughout the whole Book Camille just has this gift about keeping her head held high. I also love how colorful this book becomes through Dhonielle words. She describes a very French inspire royal era that takes place in New Orleans and its just breathe taking. I love how colorful she makes the ladies fashions but also how she adds a bit of Margaret Atwood “Hand Maiden Tale” to this book by describing this beauty is pain aspect of the world. She goes into depth about how these characters will do anything to be as colorful as the rest of the world. She really gives us a strong deep look at the Beauty world even in today modern society. I honestly could tell you so much more about this awesome book but I will leave it to you to read it. I really suggest you do read it because it is one of my latest favorites of 2018. I can tell that this book will be apart of a series simply because of how it was written and I am already dying for book two. This book is amazing and Now I want more.
In my opinion, this book is really about the princess, and Camellia the viewpoint character, is her victim. But the princess is who steals the show. I might be reading into the book, but it seems to be implied that the princess has a personality disorder of some sort (and that her mother might also be mentally ill, but is undergoing a kind of treatment for it), and in that case her portrayal isn't anything remarkable in terms of neurodiversity. BUT... she makes an amazing villain. What I loved about this book was Camellia is entering a world she doesn't understand, and unfortunately other people can't explain it to her because they're all caught up in the webs of the princess. I haven't read a book with such an exciting, intelligent and capable villain since the earlier installments of the Red Rising series. So many times in YA books, the villains are either 1) distant, 2) over-the-top evil or 3) a set piece. The princess is none of those things. She runs the show in this book, so don't underestimate her!
Anyways, if you love fantasy thrillers, and you love subverted expectations, this is a book for you!!!
