Waterstones Says

Grant’s ingenious reboot of Les Misérables maps the adventures of daring young thief Eponine in a fantastical version of nineteenth-century Paris, plagued by ruthless guilds and sinister royals.

Six of Crows meets Les Miserables 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 a failed French Revolution.

Liberty. 1828 and the citizens of Paris still mourn in the wake of their failed revolution. Among them, in the dark alleys and crumbling cathedrals of the city, the most wretched have gathered into guilds of thieves, assassins - and worse. Together they are known as The Court of Miracles.

Family. Eponine has lost more than most. When her father, Thenardier, sells her sister to the Guild of Flesh she makes a promise to do anything she can to get her sister back, even if that means joining the Court of Miracles, the very people keeping her sister a slave.

Treachery. Eponine becomes perhaps the greatest thief the Court has ever known, finding a place among them and gaining another sister, Cosette. But she has never forgotten the promise she made, and if she's to have any hope of saving one sister, she will have to betray the other.

This beautiful reimagining of Les Miserables tells the stories of your favourite characters and what might have happened if the French Revolution had not come to pass.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Strong, feminist fantasy’STYLIST ‘[A] twisty, turny and fiercely told tale of revenge and redemption’DAILY MAIL ‘Grant’s Éponine dreams of revenge, not pretty revolutionaries … She must plot a path through the treacherous Court of Miracles – a world where even the most innocent of encounters could still end with a knife in the back … A book with both a big heart and a nicely nasty streak’THE I PAPER ‘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 ‘The Eponine power fantasy for everyone who has ever wanted to punch Rudyard Kipling in the face’EK Johnson, #1 New York Times bestseller

“A wonderful French Revolution fantasy”

As someone who is already a fan of French Revolution fantasy, this sounded right up my street. The cross-over with Les Miserables initially threw me off as I didn't expect them, but the characters are definitely... More
