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.
I really enjoyed the court of Miracles by Kester Grant, I had no idea what to expect going into this book, I found it a refreshing book to read and really enjoyed the twist and turns throughout.
I really enjoyed Nina’s character, I found her character so badass and she was full of strength even when all the odds were against her, she was such a refreshing character.
I also really enjoyed St. Juste’s character as well and wish he had more of a backstory in this .
Ettie’s character i also enjoyed her i found a helplessness about her but wish she had more of a backstory but I enjoyed how her and Ninas characters came together and a bond was formed.
I loved the plot of the story and the characters and the different descriptions of the different guides. I found the plot decent and fast paced and well written but I will say that my only downside to this book when I was reading was I got really confused when it came to the little parts that where in french. I found the story had a lot of time skips throughout the book from months to sometimes years into the future.
I found the court of Miracles was strongly written, fast paced and fun that it kept me interested in the story and kept me turning the pages, I’m also looking forward to see where the story will go next.
