“A New York Times bestselling author brings dark secrets to life in a lush new YA perfect for fans of Libba Bray or Cassandra Clare.

Society girls from New York City circa 1890, Dacia and Lou never desired to know more about their lineage, instead preferring to gossip about the mysterious Romanian family that they barely knew. But upon turning seventeen, the girls must return to their homeland to meet their relatives, find proper husbands, and—most terrifyingly—learn the deep family secrets of The Claw, The Wing, and The Smoke. The Florescus, after all, are shape-shifters, and it is time for Dacia and Lou to fulfill the prophecy that demands their acceptance of this fate . . . or fight against this cruel inheritance with all their might.

With a gorgeous Romanian setting, stunning Parisian gowns, and dark brooding young men, readers will be swept up by this epic adventure of two girls in a battle for their lives.”

Why We Want This Book!


Okay, firstly, Libba Bray is one of my favorite authors and I LOVE Cassandra Clare’s City of Bone’s series. Finding a mix between the two authors and their stories? I’M THERE! =) Plus, I’m slowly starting to get back into YA historical fiction and I think that a book like this, with a few paranormal/fantastical elements to it would be just the key to opening up my heart to more genres other than just fantasy! Also, Professor McGonagall was my favorite professor in Harry Potter for many reasons; Her shape changer qualities being one of them!!!


Can I just say, the cover looks AMAZING! Now that I got that out of the way, I can get to why I am looking forward to this one. I have not read many historical fiction novels, so I’m really trying to work on that. I have found a few I would like to read, and this one really caught my attention. (Again, look at the cover!) After reading the synopsis I knew this book is one I would probably enjoy. By just what I have seen it has a sense of mystery, and paranormal elements to it. All things I enjoy! So I am really looking forward to this one!
