Disclaimer: I signed up for this blog tour long before FFBC uploaded a very controversial picture regarding the Black Lives Matter movement in their Instagram story. They have since deleted the picture, however I want to clarify that this post will be my last post with the blog tour company at least for the time being because of their highly insensitive remarks. This post is purely book-related because Kester Grant is an amzing author and she deserves all the attention for her new book. Please don’t forget to sign the petitions, educate yourself on a system that actively discriminate against black people and do your part as a good citizen.

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 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.
Kester Grant is a British-Mauritian writer of color. She was born in London, grew up between the UK, Democratic Republic of Congo, and the tropical island paradise of Mauritius.
