Summary

Les Misérables meets Six of Crows in this unstoppable adventure, as a young thief finds herself going head to head with leaders of Paris's criminal underground in the wake of a failed French Revolution. 

A city divided. A deadly betrayal. 

The French Revolution of 1828 has failed and Paris is in mourning.

The wretched of the city have gathered into guilds of thieves, assassins and worse, to form the Court of Miracles.

When Eponine's sister is sold into the Guild of Flesh, both their fates are sealed. The only chance Eponine has of rescuing her is to join the Miracle Court and steal back what was taken.

But to do that she'll have to become the greatest thief the city has ever known.

Critic reviews

"As Nina's quest...takes her from the catacombs to the palace, from the company of beggars to revolutionaries to the Dauphin himself, the balance between fairy tale and realism is beautifully maintained. Beguiling, in an Angela Carter-like way." (SFX

"A dark, thrilling tale of what goes on in a fantastical Parisian underworld...come for the world-building and Les Mis connections, stay for the heroine." (Starburst)

 Strong, feminist fantasy." (STYLIST)

Started With Such Promise

I enjoyed the beginning of the book but as the story went on the middle felt like it was a little rushed, I felt nothing for the main character untill chapter 25 on wards & the action picked up.

I believe there could of been more character building & going from place to place in the boom could of been paced out more , the story was a hit & miss for me in places but the ending did leave intrigue to pick up the next one in the series when it releases
