#1 Bestseller in France


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.

Revue de presse :

Praise for A Winter's Promise



"This French best-seller, the first in Dabos immersive Mirror Visitor quartet, holds as much appeal for adult fantasy readers as for teens. Booklist



"Your next YA obsession." Entertainment Weekly



"Dabos has managed the rarely seen triad of complex worldbuilding, nuanced character development, and enthralling plot, even making it look easy. Not a seam shows in this intricate narrative weave that centers on and empowers an endearingly bookish and clumsy anti-heroine without insisting she change." Kirkus Reviews



As mesmerizing as a waking dream, A WINTER S PROMISE is certain to ensnare you in its unique, dizzyingly magical world of treachery, illusion, and intrigue.
Margaret Rogerson, author of An Enchantment of Ravens



A fantastic epic, definitely, but also a coming-of-age novel, this first volume
makes a strong impression. A novelist is born.
Le Figaro



Today, The Mirror Visitor stands on the same shelf as Harry Potter.
Elle



Christelle Dabos impresses in this first novel with the power
of her imagination. The architect of a bewitching and complex world,
she sustains it with a subtle sense of wonder and elegant, flowing language.
From metaphor to metaphor, this addictive and charming novel is also
a great coming-of-age story.
Télérama



From the very first page, you are thrown into this universe, launched
through one of Anima s mirrors, never to return. --20 Minutes

Readers passion for this series comes from the pleasure of walking
up and down the world of the Arks, weightless floating islands that are
ruled by family spirits and humans gifted with special powers. --Le Monde

With surgical precision, Christelle Dabos has created a hybrid world between
fantasy and the Belle Époque. --MadmoiZelle
