Book Review: The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant

This was a marvelous find!! What an original spin off of history and a classic of literature (and stage)!

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Grant did a phenomenal job with the world-building here. The story takes events and personalities, real and literary, and blends them seamlessly with a wholly original construct involving guilds, the poor, conspiracy, and preternatural skill. The result is a fantastic read populated by a wide-ranging cast of characters that leapt off the pages for me. The pacing, the adventures, the drama, the scene-setting – it was all brilliant. The story grabbed me from the opening pages and never let go…

I cannot WAIT to see what happens next and sincerely hope the next installment comes out soon. There are a LOT of characters with a LOT of balls on the air, and it will not be easy to keep them all top of mind enough to maximize the magic of a second book if a lot of time passes before I read it. It’s good enough to warrant a reread if need be though – and that right there should be all the affirmation you need in order to pick this one up post-haste!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.

And p.s. – what an absolutely perfect, incredible cover!!
