Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.
To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can’t yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.
Together, they’ll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.
I haven’t read much of Roshani Chokhi’s work, though I have a copy of Star-Touched Queen all but waiting for me to crack it open. But I loved her short story Forbidden Fruit, a story about Maria Makiling, from the A Thousand Beginnings and Endings anthology, and this book’s premise just sounds so ultra delicious that I pre-ordered it already (my bank account screaming “NO” the whole time, but what bookworm listens to it.)
What book/s are you excited for this week?
