Description

No one believes in them. But soon no one will forget them.

'A masterpiece of imagination' Stephanie Garber, Sunday Times bestselling author of Caraval

'Part political misadventure, part puzzle, and thoroughly charming, with a band of rapscallions and a string of surprises!' Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of The Cruel Prince

Paris, 1889. The city is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets.

Here, no one keeps tabs on dark truths better than treasure hunter and wealthy hotelier Severin Montagnet-Alarie. When the elite, ever-powerful Order of Babel coerces him to help them on a mission, Severin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To hunt down the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Severin calls upon a band of unlikely experts: an engineer with a debt to pay; a historian banished from his home; a dancer with a sinister past; and a brother in arms if not blood.

Together they will join Severin as he explores the dark, glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the course of history - but only if they can stay alive.

From New York Times bestselling author Roshani Chokshi comes a novel set in Paris during a time of extraordinary change - one that is full of mystery, decadence, and dangerous desires . . .

'This is a book to swan-dive into, swim around in, luxuriate in. Trust me, you won't want to come out' Laini Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of Strange the Dreamer

'A gorgeously layered story, with characters that make you laugh and ache and cheer' Renee Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath & the Dawn
