If you like mysteries, evocative settings, writing reminiscent of Holly Black, found families and a fast-paced standalone novel, definitively check this one out. Highly recommend.
For fans of The Night Circus and Holly Black’s Curseworkers series!
One thing I look forward to in the final copy of Daughter of the Burning City is the sketches of each illusions and the killers remarks about each one. I find this very unique and I can't wait to see the sketches of each illusion. I must say, the killer's remarks are quite direct. A subtle yet very observant detail of each illusion.
The revelations are crushing and unexpected.
I really enjoyed this one. I have yet to read a book that has carnival like elements and I'll look for more books with this element to read. I highly recommend Daughter of the Burning City for it's wholly unique premise and dark and twisted tale
Sorina is more than a performer in Gomorrah; she is also the adopted daughter and heir apparent of the show/city’s Proprietor, Villiam. Because of her youth, he has kept most of the details of Gomorrah’s past and the Proprietor’s job from her until now, but the murders suggest to both that she needs to learn more, and quickly. Readers don’t learn much about the geography and politics of the land Gomorrah travels through until about a third of the way through the book, but thereafter, these elements become increasingly important. Sorina also encounters romance, but her her relationship with Luca, a fellow performer who helps her investigate the murders, develops slowly, and the author does not hit the reader over the head with it.
I was amazed to discover after I finished the book that it was part of a “Harlequin Teen” series. Such an imprint would have led me to expect (mistakenly, perhaps) not only a “YA” book but a rather superficial one, heavy on the romance—but this book is anything but. It does have a teenaged protagonist, and a romance of sorts, but the character development and the issues raised, including the nature of reality and illusion and the painful inner conflict that competing loyalties can produce, make it worthwhile and enjoyable reading for people of any age.
