In this latest installment of The New York Times bestselling series that began with The Beautiful, Pippa journeys to the treacherous and beguiling world of the fey in search of answers only to fall in love. Following the explosive events of The Damned, Odette faces a vampire’s final death. The Court of the Lions have done everything they can to save her but have failed. A healer from the Sylvan Vale could help her, but only Arjun Desai, as a half fey, can cross the boundary between realms. The Sylvan Vale is a world Arjun despises, and in return, it despises him. But knowing it could save Odette, he returns to the Vale with all haste, leaving the mirrored tare between the two worlds open and unwittingly setting the stage for both love and war. It’s mere days until Pippa Montrose is to wed Phoebus Devereux and become a member of his well-heeled family, offering salvation to her own. But Celine is missing. Pippa has no idea where her best friend has gone, but she’s certain it’s in the company of vampire Sébastien Saint Germain and that Arjun can lead her to them. Pippa enjoins the help of Eloise, the daughter of a powerful sorceress, to discover the gateway Arjun uses to travel between worlds. Pippa, tired of hesitating in life, marches right through in search of her friend. But what she discovers on the other side is a dangerous, duplicitous world full of mischief and magic she doesn’t understand, and most unexpectedly, she finds love. Author of the New York Times bestselling duology The Wrath & The Dawn, Renée Ahdieh is back. The Righteous is the can’t-miss lead in to what will be a much-anticipated finale of a can't miss quartet.

The Righteous is the third book in The Beautiful series by Renee Ahdieh. The first two books of this series are focused on the vampire aspect of this world, but in this third book, we introduce the Fae into the mix. Whenever I encounter a series with Fae, the wit, sarcasm, and playful banter take things to a whole new level. The main themes of feminism, sex positivity, and cause diversity make for an exciting read that has flowed throughout the entire series.
The story follows Pippa and Arjun's story, and Bastin and Celine get to take a back seat, and boy, does that make for an interesting take. Pippa and Arjun are significant in playing off each other and their adventures in the fae land. I also really enjoy the various Alice in Wonderland book quotes shared at the start of the chapters.
Final Thoughts:
The Righteous is my favorite out of the three books. The ending on this one is quite the doozy, so be prepared for that. If you love vampires and the addition of fae antics, this is the series for you.
Audiobook Review:
After listening to the audiobook version, I have to say the narrator has an alluring voice that holds your interest the whole time. I love how each character has unique sounds, so you always know who's talking. The narration is outstanding done, and the tone matches perfectly with the various characters of the series.

Arjun travels to his homeland to try to find something to save Odette from dying the final death. He'll do whatever it takes to save the people he cares about. Pippa will also do anything for her friends, including risking her life by following Arjin into the fae world to find Celine. Pippa just wants to make sure she's okay, but finds herself in more trouble than she bargains for.

Wrapped up in fae customs, Pippa becomes engaged to Arjun, even though she's supposed to wed Phoebus. Arjun wants to make sure Pippa gets out of there alive because she's always been someone special to him, but he isn't certain why. He will face his mom and everyone else to do the right thing. Both Pippa and Arjun are loyal which makes they mold well together.

While Pippa and Arjun tiptoe around the fae courts, Celine and Bastien are walking on eggshells of their own. Celine has just been reunited with her mother and Bastien has left his friends in a time where they need him. The guilt about Odette builds up in Bastien and he doesn't trust Celine's mom. The rising tensions cause Celine and Bastien to bicker more and more.

In the first two books of the series, there's more of a focus on vampires and Celine and Bastien. In THE RIGHTEOUS, we get to witness the fae world and some of their politics. This was fascinating and I love Arjun and Pippa together. The two make a fearsome duo, like Celine and Bastien. The alternating POVs keeps things moving at a fast pace, and while this one follows Pippa and Arjun the most, we also catch glimpses of Celine and Bastien. This was an intriguing third to the series and has left me craving the fourth.

After listening to the audiobook version, I have to say the narrator has an alluring voice that holds your interest the whole time. I love how each character has their own unique sound so you always know who's talking.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of vampires, fae, and other supernatural creatures. THE RIGHTEOUS is a paranormal romance with a dash of fantasy that highlights the fae and their politics and is the third in the Beautiful Series. The whole series comes highly recommend from me!
