4th June 2020 – The Court of Miracles – Kester Grant
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.
1828 and the citizens of Paris still mourn in the wake of their failed revolution. Among them, in the dark alleys and crumbling cathedrals of the city, the most wretched have gathered into guilds of thieves, assassins – and worse. Together they are known as The Court of Miracles.
Eponine has lost more than most. When her father, Thénardier, sells her sister to the Guild of Flesh she makes a promise to do anything she can to get her sister back, even if that means joining the Court of Miracles, the very people keeping her sister a slave.
Eponine becomes perhaps the greatest thief the Court has ever known, finding a place among them and gaining another sister, Cosette. But she has never forgotten the promise she made, and if she’s to have any hope of saving one sister, she will have to betray the other.
This beautiful reimagining of Les Misérables tells the stories of your favourite characters and what might have happened if the French Revolution had not come to pass.
7th June 2020 – The Shape of Fire – D.K. Holmberg
A return of a long defeated threat changes everything for a master of the elements.
The power of the elements can be complicated to master. Most reach it through the element bonds, ways of connecting to and shaping power that allowed the nation of Terndahl to thrive for centuries. Few can reach power of their own, an ancient way of holding magic the elemental warriors of old possessed.
As spirit master, Tolan teaches how to use the power of the element bonds, but he knows a greater truth. Connected to power of his own, Tolan can use that, along with his bond to the elementals, in ways others cannot.
When a threat all thought long ago defeated returns, Tolan finds his service to the Academy will require more than a master of spirit. Stopping this threat requires an ancient elemental warrior, but what if even that magic is not enough?
The Shape of Fire is the start of an exciting fantasy adventure series.
