Book Review: The Damned by Renée Ahdieh

The Damned (The Beautiful #2) by Renée Ahdieh
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Historical Romance)
Date Published: July 7, 2020 
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers

Following the events of The Beautiful, Sébastien Saint Germain is now cursed and forever changed. The treaty between the Fallen and the Brotherhood has been broken, and war between the immortals seems imminent. The price of loving Celine was costly. But Celine has also paid a high price for loving Bastien.

Still recovering from injuries sustained during a night she can’t quite remember, her dreams are troubled. And she doesn’t know she has inadvertently set into motion a chain of events that could lead to her demise and unveil a truth about herself she’s not quite ready to learn.

Forces hiding in the shadows have been patiently waiting for this moment for centuries. And just as Bastien and Celine begin to uncover the danger around them, they learn their love could tear them apart.

New York Times bestselling author Renée Ahdieh returns with the second installment of her new sumptuous, sultry and romantic series, The Beautiful. 

The Damned is the second book in The Beautiful series by Renée Ahdieh. I had a really hard time getting into this one. I actually stopped reading it for a while and then came back a month or so later to finish it up. I don't know what was different from the first book, but I was just not clicking with it. I missed some of the dark mystery, and charm, and that chemistry between Celine and Bastien that we found in the first book. It felt very tedious with not a lot happening most of the time. There are a lot of good reviews out there.. It just didn't grab me, and at this point, I feel like I probably won't read the next book. 

I live in North Carolina (Go Heels!) with my husband Victor and our dog Mushu. In my spare time, I like to cook, mess with makeup, and wreak havoc on the lives of my characters.
