Can’t-Wait Wednesday: The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.
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.
Why I Can’t Wait:
When I saw ARCs of this book being received by bloggers, I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful cover. Then I saw it compared to Les Miserables meets Six of Crows and I knew it was going to be a must-read for me. I’ve always been Team Eponine as she’s such a vivid character so I’m really excited to read a story focused just on her.
