Overview
Darkly romantic and entirely enchanting, this reimagining of "The Nutcracker" from Claire Legrand brims with magic, love, and intrigue and includes a Victorian mob princess/warrior heroine, an alternate New York City, steampunk faeries and an epic multigenerational battle ("Kirkus Reviews").
After her mother is brutally murdered, seventeen-year-old Clara Stole is determined to find out what happened to her. Her father, a powerful man with little integrity, is a notorious New York City gang lord in the syndicate-turned-empire called Concordia. And he isn t much help.
But there is something even darker than Concordia s corruption brewing under the surface of the city, something full of vengeance and magic, like the stories Clara s godfather used to tell her when she was a little girl. Then her father is abducted and her little sister s life is threatened, and Clara accidentally frees Nicholas from a statue that has been his prison for years. Nicholas is the rightful prince of Cane, a wintry kingdom that exists beyond the city Clara has known her whole life.
When Nicholas and Clara journey together to Cane to retrieve her father, Clara encounters Anise, the queen of the faeries, who has ousted the royal family in favor of her own totalitarian, anti-human regime. Clara finds that this new world is not as foreign as she feared, but time is running out for her family, and there is only so much magic can do...
"New York Times "bestselling author Marissa Meyer ("Cinder") says this is not your grandmother s "Nutcracker" tale. "
