The Belles is such a charming novel with a fantastic premise, characters that are easy to love, and world building that is unlike any novels I've read recently!
The Belles is more than just a stunning, photo-worthy cover. It's full of everything I love about a fantasy. The world building made this book really at and apart from others. You can tell how hard the author worked to bring the settings to life and bring about a beautiful world.
The characters were well developed and exciting to read about - even the ones that I found myself not loving as much as the main character were still easy to love, because of how amazingly written they were.
The story was fun and exciting, with never a single dull moment to be found.
