A diverse fantasy reimagining of Les Misérables and The Jungle Book.
In the dark days following a failed French Revolution, in the violent jungle of an alternate 1828 Paris, young cat-burglar Eponine (Nina) Thenardier goes head to head with merciless royalty, and the lords of the city's criminal underworld to save the life of her adopted sister Cosette (Ettie).
Her vow will take her from the city’s dark underbelly, through a dawning revolution, to the very heart of the glittering court of Louis XVII, where she must make an impossible choice between guild, blood, betrayal and war.
Hardcover, 464 pages
Expected publication: May 14th 2020 by Harper Voyager
After seeing the UK publisher post about this all the time on twitter I had to look the book up. And gosh. Now I simply cannot wait to read it, haha. I think it sounds awesome. And it looks so stunning too. Sigh. I'm hoping I will end up loving this book a whole bunch. It do sound all kinds of great, so I think I will :D
What are you waiting for on this miracle Wednesday?
