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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Emma Pass | 2/4/2014

    " This is a gorgeous book - beautifully written with an unforgettable heroine. I loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Cate | 1/27/2014

    " I was going to give this book 4/5 until I got to the ending. The climax/catharsis was so emotionally satisfying it surprised tears to my eyes. The author did a superb job of building the mystery and establishing a line of red herrings that draws the reader off the scent every bit as much as it does the heroine. Just when you think you know where the story is going along all-too familiar lines, its twists unexpectedly and takes you with it. Finished this book in less than a day and stayed up way, way too late, just to find out whodunit. "
