Publisher's Summary

Les Misérables meets Six of Crows in this pause-resisting adventure as a young thief finds herself going head to head with leaders of Paris' criminal underground in the wake of the French Revolution.

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. 

This audiobook includes a diagram of the Miracle Court on a bonus PDF. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The child of Just So Stories and Les Miserables

Much of this book has fables peppered throughout that gives the book a beautiful dark rhythmic pace. It took me a chapter or 2 to adjust to the strangeness of it.. The book also has a dark atmosphere that is delightfully chilling.. the narrator has a beautiful voice that matches the rhythm of the story.
Lately I have been going back to my old classics, because I just haven't been finding good quality books, and I get so tired of authors using magic to fill the holes of their writing. This author had real meat to her story, and did not need to fall back on magic to give her tale real flesh. I am a huge Rudyard Kilpling fan and I appreciated the nod at his writing style, but she did not steal, she was inspired by Kipling to create her own format. I also appreciated the references to Les Miserables, but the story is so changed that it is new.

One hot mess

A couple of good ideas that go no where. Leveraging Hugo’s characters is a cheap shot. I like fanfic, but this has distorted the original to the point that the names could be (and should have been) changed as the story adds nothing to the original. Even John Lee couldn’t save this book.

a new favorite

Even if you have never read Les Miserable, you will still love this story filled with action, relationships and a strong heroine. My love for Leslie Mis only made me love this story more hearing the names of the characters and seeing how small parts of this story compare to Les Mis. I am also glad that the twists and turns give this story a happy ending.

AMAZING!!

♦ This book deserves its five stars no questions asked!!!

♢ It has everything you’ll ever want!!! Strong female protagonist, heists, found families, respecting male characters!!!

♦ I admit I’ve never read les Misérables, I do plan to do so, but I watched the anime and the movie multiple times and I’m telling you, it’s STILL AMAZING even without reading the og story!! Yes you might need to know the names of the characters to scream excitedly, but it doesn’t take away anything from this book<333
