Ne souffrez plus pour être une Belle.

Dans le monde opulent d'Orléans, les gens naissent gris, ils naissent condamnés, et seules les Belles peuvent, grâce à leur talent, les transformer et les rendre beaux. En tant que Belle, Camélia Beauregard est presque une déesse dans cet univers où triomphe le culte des apparences.
Or Camélia ne veut pas se contenter d'être une Belle. Elle rêve de devenir la favorite choisie par la reine d'Orléans pour s'occuper de la famille royale et d'être reconnue comme la plus douée du pays. Mais une fois Camélia et ses soeurs Belles arrivées à la cour, il s'avère que la position de favorite tient davantage du cauchemar. Derrière les ors du palais, les noirs secrets pullulent...
Le premier volet d'une série éblouissante.

" Un monde d'une beauté à vous couper le souffle et profondément déstabilisant, peuplé de personnages forts et complexes. " Marie Lu, auteure de Young Elites, série best-seller du New York Times.

Camellia Beauregard is a Belle. In the opulent world of Orleans, Belles are revered, for they control Beauty, and Beauty is a commodity coveted above all else. In Orleans, the people are born gray, they are born damned, and only with the help of a Belle and her talents can they transform and be made beautiful. But it's not enough for Camellia to be just a Belle. She wants to be the favorite—the Belle chosen by the Queen of Orleans to live in the royal palace, to tend to the royal family and their court, to be recognized as the most talented Belle in the land. But once Camellia and her Belle sisters arrive at court, it becomes clear that being the favorite is not everything she always dreamed it would be. Behind the gilded palace walls live dark secrets, and Camellia soon learns that the very essence of her existence is a lie—that her powers are far greater, and could be more dangerous, than she ever imagined. And when the queen asks Camellia to risk her own life and help the ailing princess by using Belle powers in unintended ways, Camellia now faces an impossible decision. With the future of Orleans and its people at stake, Camellia must decide—save herself and her sisters and the way of the Belles—or resuscitate the princess, risk her own life, and change the ways of her world forever. Dhonielle Clayton creates a rich, detailed, decadent world of excess and privilege, where beauty is not only skin-deep, but a complete mirage. Weaving deeper questions about the commodification of women's bodies, gender equality, racial identity, and vanity with high-stakes action and incredible imagery, The Belles is the must-read epic of the season.
