  • Grades 9-12 /* Starred Review */ Clayton’s eagerly anticipated sequel picks up where the explosive events of The Belles (2018) left readers dangling from a well-crafted cliff. Camille’s innocence has been stripped away, and our beloved, once-naive Belle has blossomed into a gloriously ambitious and rightfully enraged young woman who is hell bent on liberating her Belle sisters, finding the missing Princess Charlotte, and ripping the throne of Orléans out of Sophia’s evil hands. But none of these goals prove easy with Sophia’s imperial forces hunting Camille, her sister Edel, and her handsome guard Rémy. When Camille learns Sophia is constructing a prison to enslave Belles and chain them to the ugly demands of the kingdom, the stakes spike higher than ever. If Camille hopes to change Orléans for the better and save the Belles from falling deeper into bondage, she must find and restore Princess Charlotte to the throne before Sophia is crowned queen. Although The Belles is a phenomenal read, this is even more staggering. Clayton seizes the opportunity to expound upon Orléans, rendering a world that is breathtaking and crushing, beautiful and vile, and whimsical and terrifying. She poignantly uses a harrowing, fantastical tale to illuminate the very real horrors of unattainable beauty standards and the enslavement of marginalized bodies. As relevant as it is exquisite. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Belles hit best-seller status, and its fans' excitement for the sequel will be further stoked by Clayton's national author tour. -- Enishia Davenport (Reviewed 12/15/2018) (Booklist, vol 115, number 8, p95)
  • /* Starred Review */ The sequel to Clayton's The Belles (2018) freezes blood and steals breath. With the capricious and conniving Princess Sophia poised to seize the throne and already capturing Belles in her obsessive greed and ploy for domination, Camille, her sisters, and the young soldier Rémy are all fugitives. Orléans society is in a frantic uproar trying to stay in the soon-to-be queen's mercurial favor, and as the orderly veneer of an economy of beauty trade crumbles away to fully reveal its darker, underlying structures of enslaved magical labor and implicit violence, the dehumanizing attitudes Sophia emboldens throughout the kingdom endanger Belles everywhere. Camille knows her only hope is to find the recently awakened Princess Charlotte, who is the rightful heir, but as Camille realizes the horrifying extent of Sophia's cruelty and as her own actions and alliances grow more questionable, it becomes clear that putting things right may cost her everything she has known, about her world and herself. The opulence of Clayton's world gives way here to the stark contrast of its sinister underbelly of material beauty and class oppression. Narrative craft that can hold the tension of the implicit (and sorely lacking) value of black and brown features as beautiful as it intertwines with incisive commentary on the overall commodification of beauty is no small feat, and Clayton manages thrills of action, magic, romance, and revolution as well. Beauty comes at a price; so too does freedom. (Fantasy. 14-18) (Kirkus Reviews, January 1, 2019)
