What to expect
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 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.
