Lose
yourself in the fantastic world of the arks and in the company of
unforgettable characters in this French runaway hit, Christelle Dabos’
The Mirror Visitor quartet.

Plain-spoken, headstrong
Ophelia cares little about appearances. Her ability to read the past of
objects is unmatched in all of Anima and, what’s more, she possesses the
ability to travel through mirrors, a skill passed down to her from
previous generations. Her idyllic life is disrupted, however, when she
is promised in marriage to Thorn, a taciturn and influential member of a
distant clan. Ophelia must leave all she knows behind and follow her
fiancé to Citaceleste, the capital of a cold, icy ark known as the Pole,
where danger lurks around every corner and nobody can be trusted.
There, in the presence of her inscrutable future husband, Ophelia slowly
realizes that she is a pawn in a political game that will have
far-reaching ramifications not only for her but for her entire world.

The World of the Arks

Long
ago, following a cataclysm called the Rupture, the world was shattered
into many floating celestial islands, now known as arks. Over each, the
spirit of an omnipotent and immortal ancestor abides. The inhabitants of
these arks each possess a unique power. Ophelia, with her ability to
read the pasts of objects, must navigate this fantastic, disjointed,
perilous world using her trademark tenacity and quiet strength.

An unforgettable heroine, a rich and bountiful universe, intrigue and suspense: A Winter’s Promise is perfect for readers of Margaret Rogerson’s An Enchantment of Ravens, Melissa Albert’s The Hazel Wood, V.E. Schwab’s “Shades of Magic” series, Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone, Kenneth Oppel’s “Airborne” series, and N.K. Jemisin “Broken Earth” series.

Extract:

I
think we could have all lived happily, in a way, God, me and the
others, if it weren’t for that accursed book. It disgusted me. I knew
what bound me to it in the most sickening of ways, but the horror of
that particular knowledge came later, much later. I didn’t understand
straight away, I was too ignorant.
