In a dreamy and mesmerizing delivery, Sophie Amoss describes how Belle detests her Egyptian complexion, inherited from her father. All her life she's been in the shadow of her French mother's flawless beauty and obsessive hunt for youth. When Belle's mother mysteriously dies, Belle flies to California to make arrangements. There she discovers a terrifying spa, La Maison de Méduse, which could have caused her mother's death. Amoss does a remarkable job escorting listeners through Belle's bizarre metamorphosis as she falls prey to the very spa trance experienced by her mother. Amoss transfixes listeners with her delivery of the escalating horror as Belle shifts from normalcy to a frightening shell of her former self. Who can save her? Amoss masterfully delivers French phrases, adding charm to a gripping listening experience. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
