"In a field thick with medieval despots and fairytale atmosphere, it stands out for its uniquely different and complex setting"

Beginning in 2013 with The Bone Season, Samantha Shannon’s fantasy series has attracted a large readership and much-deserved praise. ... The characters are believable, as are the compromises they make to stay alive under a fascistic government. This new book takes the much-abused heroine Paige Mahoney out of Britain in search of potential new allies in Paris, where the narrative exerts the same vice-like grip as before, with danger, deception, hair’s-breadth escapes and new revelations coming thick and fast.
