Summary of the Book:

Fortune favors the bold. Magic favors the liars.

Ren is a con artist who has come to the sparkling city of Nadežra with one goal: to trick her way into a noble house, securing her fortune and her sister’s future.

But as she’s drawn into the elite world of House Traementis, she realizes her masquerade is just one of many surrounding her. And as nightmare magic begins to weave its way through the City of Dreams, the poisonous feuds of its aristocrats and the shadowy dangers of its impoverished underbelly become tangled…with Ren at their heart.

The Mask of Mirrors is the unmissable start to the Rook & Rose trilogy, a dazzling and darkly magical fantasy adventure by Marie Brennan and Alyc Helms, writing together as M. A. Carrick.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is the kind of books that grabs a hold of you and does not let go. It has you thinking what is going to happen what mystery or lie is around the next corner. The world in this book is clearly split in two. The upper crust and the underbelly. Ren is no prepare for what she was getting herself into when she went to get herself into a noble house. What she discovers is a lot going on behind closed doors and under the surface and the grandeur of the world she has now enters. It is a great start to this new trilogy.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
