Can’t Wait Wednesday : The Court of Miracles (A Court of Miracles #1) by Kester Grant

Can't Wait Wednesday

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was originally created by Breaking the Spine.  Unfortunately Breaking the Spine are no longer hosting so I’m now linking my posts up to Wishful Endings Can’t Wait Wednesday. Don’t forget to stop over, link up and check out what books everyone else is waiting for.  If you want to take part, basically, every Wednesday, we highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  This week my book is : The Court of Miracles (A Court of Miracles #1) by Kester Grant – and here’s why I’m so excited:

CourtofMiracles.jpgA 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.

For fans of the gritty criminal underworlds of Six Of Crows, The Lies Of Locke Lamora, fierce alternate histories like The Gilded Wolves, And I Darken …and anyone who knows that Eponine deserved so much more.

Expected Publication : June 2020

    This book sounds amazing and that cover looks phenomenal. I might just have to add it to my list of books to read this year, thanks for the recommendation.

    This one caught my eye too! It was the “Les Misérables and The Jungle Book” description 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know and the comparison with Lies of Locke Lamora too.

    This sounds amazing, definitely one for the TBR list 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I love the idea of Les Mis meets Jungle Book – plus the comparison to The Lies of Locke Lamora – hope it lives up to this incredible promise.
      Lynn 😀

        Locke Lamora is yet another book I’ve owned for ages and still haven’t got around to reading yet 😀

      • @lynnsbooks

        It’s perhaps as well, there has been a rather long wait for the next book (No.4) in series although I think it is now in the pipeline (hopefully).

      I love the idea of a combination of Les Mis and Jungle Book.

    What an amazing cover – and that premise sounds very interesting:)). I hope you love this one, Lynn!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I like the idea of Les Mis – and Jungle book, although they don’t sound like a likely pairing so we shall see.
      Lynn 😀

      • sjhigbee

        Yes – and those elevator-pitch sentences often don’t bear too much examination, anyway!

    This says it’s like a lot of things I like so I’m excited for it. 🙂
