The Beautiful and the Cursed by Paige Morgan
Summary via Goodreads:
After a bizarre accident, Ingrid Waverly is forced to leave London with her mother and younger sister, Gabby, trading a world full of fancy dresses and society events for the unfamiliar city of Paris.
In Paris there are no grand balls or glittering parties, and, disturbingly, the house Ingrid’s twin brother, Grayson, found for them isn’t a house at all. It’s an abandoned abbey, its roof lined with stone gargoyles that could almost be mistaken for living, breathing creatures.
And Grayson has gone missing.
No one seems to know of his whereabouts but Luc, a devastatingly handsome servant at their new home.
Ingrid is sure her twin isn’t dead—she can feel it deep in her soul—but she knows he’s in grave danger. It will be up to her and Gabby to navigate the twisted path to Grayson, a path that will lead Ingrid on a discovery of dark secrets and otherworldly truths. And she’ll learn that once they are uncovered, they can never again be buried.
Why am I looking forward to The Beautiful and the Cursed? It's historical fantasy! Also, I mean, gargoyle lore gets worked into this? I'm so excited! Seriously. I think this is the first time in quite a while that I've seen it covered and I can't wait to see what Paige Morgan has done with it!
The Beautiful and Cursed by Paige Morgan is published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House, and its expected publication date is May 14, 2013.
