Notable New Release | City of a Thousand Dolls by Mirian Forster
Only one new release caught my eye last week. It was City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster. It first caught my eye because the cover reminds me of the Southern Oracle from The Neverending Story. Man I love that movie. (I should say book, but I haven't read it.) After losing myself in my memories of Atreyu, the description for City of a Thousand Dolls sounded pretty awesome, too.
February 5th 2013
The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a little girl. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. She makes her way as Matron's errand girl, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city's handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.
Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls' deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but also her life.
