Rating: three-stars

Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets. In this city, no one keeps tabs on secrets better than treasure-hunter and wealthy hotelier, Séverin Montagnet-Alarie. But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance.

To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts: An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can't yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.

Together, they'll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.

As soon as I started reading this, I got a Six of Crows vibe, which made me very happy because I love that book!

I really liked the magic and the heist elements of this story, and I found of the couple of the characters really interesting (Enrique and Zofia were my favourites).

But I struggled to feel attached to the other characters, particularly Severin, who was the leader of the group. For the most part, I didn’t get a sense of who most of the characters were or how and why they were connected to each other and worked together.

There was a lot going on in this book and I don’t think I understood it all. There were times when I felt confused.

Even if I couldn’t always follow it, this was an interesting story set in an intriguing world. I liked parts of this enough that I’d like to check out the sequel. And I’ve seen some glowing reviews on Goodreads, so if you like magic and adventure, this might be what you’re looking for.
