Genre : Historical, Fantasy
In the violent urban jungle of an alternate 1828 Paris, the French Revolution has failed and the city is divided between merciless royalty and nine underworld criminal guilds, known as the Court of Miracles. Eponine (Nina) Thénardier is a talented cat burglar and member of the Thieves Guild. Nina’s life is midnight robberies, avoiding her father’s fists, and watching over her naïve adopted sister, Cosette (Ettie).
When Ettie attracts the eye of the Tiger–the ruthless lord of the Guild of Flesh–Nina is caught in a desperate race to keep the younger girl safe. Her vow takes her from the city’s dark underbelly to the glittering court of Louis XVII. And it also forces Nina to make a terrible choice–protect Ettie and set off a brutal war between the guilds, or forever lose her sister to the Tiger.
Les Misérables meets Six of Crows in this page-turning adventure as a young thief finds herself going head to head with leaders of Paris’s criminal underground in the wake of the French Revolution.
So i was a little bit expecting something big by reading the synopsis. I kind of create a plot for it and of course I am wrong. I should put high hopes for this one.
The plot was very thrilling at the first hundred pages. The introduction of everything is superb and the characters are amazing. But when the conflict shows up, I kind of lost a bit and I need to reread some parts. At the end, I did pick up the story.
Nina, the main character, is admirable. She’s cunning and brilliant. Also, adventurous. Did I mention that she’s a great theif? But honestly I would like to see her in action even more in the story. Stealing good stuff and get in trouble.
Like I say, I predicted the storyline after the thrilling introduction. But I am absolutely wrong. The story didn’t really reveals what I expected and that is a little disappointment. But overall I did enjoy the current plot and storyline. Yet, I think the ending is quite rushing and just like ” here’s the ending. “
Rating : 3/5 🌟
