Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fans of fantasy will enjoy the magical elements, while the subtle commentary of the novel’s stratified society lends it a dystopian vibe similar to Veronica Roth’s Divergent that will appeal to readers outside of the fantasy genre.” (School Library Journal)

“An engrossing, complicated fantasy.” (ALA Booklist)

“An infusion of Asian elements and rich details bring this fantasy world alive.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

Praise for CITY OF A THOUSAND DOLLS: “A strong debut [and] fresh fantasy/mystery crossover. Set in a magically isolated Empire, Forster’s well-crafted story and confident prose are rich, packed with small details that immerse readers in her sumptuously imagined world.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“A fantastical murder mystery with a creative premise, heart-pounding pacing, and characters with secrets to keep.” (Cinda Williams Chima,author of the best-selling Seven Realms series)

“With fantastic world building and a wonderful heroine, CITY OF A THOUSAND DOLLS intrigued me from the first page.” (Cindy Pon, author of Silver Phoenix)

“The mystery here is a fine one, and the concept of the City is well-executed. As Nisha must choose between remaining within the cloistered safety of the City or taking her chances with the outside world, her dilemma will be familiar with teens looking toward adulthood.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

From the Back Cover

"I'm a bodyguard. Not a Spy," Mara said.
The noble girl raised her eyebrows.
"We'll see."

Cast out of her family three years ago, Mara turned to the only place that would take her—a school where students train to protect others. But Mara is stunned when guarding a noble girl in the Empire's capital turns out to be more dangerous than she could've imagined. More shocking still, she finds the boy she thought she had lost forever outside the gates of her new home.

Mara knew the dizzying Imperial city would hold dangers. How could she have known that her heart, as well as her life, would be at stake?

Empire of Shadows will take readers on a spellbinding journey into the world Miriam Forster first introduced in City of a Thousand Dolls—a world with a divided society, deadly courtiers, heroic traitors, and deeply laid conspiracies.
