If you’ve had your head stuck under a rock these past few months you may not have heard about “The Belles” by Dhonielle Clayton. The Belles are Beautiful women with the gift to control beauty which in Orleans where the people are born grey skinned and red eyed, is a commodity valued above all else. This particular story follows Camellia Beauregard and her Belle sisters as they arrive at court, vying for the title of favourite and the chance to live in the palace and tend to the royal family directly. Behind the palace walls however lie dark secrets that will make Camellia question the very existence of the Belle’s and the limits of their powers, especially her own. When the Queen asks Camellia to risk her own life to help the ailing Princess using her abilities in unintended ways she faces a decision that could put the future of Orleans at stake but could change the ways of her world forever.
Author, Dhonielle Clayton is a former teacher and middle school librarian from Wasington, DC and aside from The Belles she has also co-authored the Tiny Little Things series. In addition to writing however, Dhonielle is also the co-founder of CAKE Literary – a creative development company whipping up diverse books for a wide range of readers.
