‘A stroll through a fascinating alternate Paris at the turn of the 20th century, but one in which mystery, magic, and murder lurk at every step.’
Paris of Wonders
(Le Paris des merveilles)
Welcome to Paris of Wonders, one of the gates between our universe and the OtherWorld ruled by the fairy queen. This could be Paris during the Belle Epoque, but when you look more closely, the Eiffel Tower is built of snow-white wood, mermaids bathe in the Seine, and flying cats roam the roofs of the city.
Louis Denizart Hippolyte Griffont is a gentleman wizard. Charged with investigating illegal trafficking in enchanted objects, he soon finds himself dealing with a series of murders and facing multiple perils: a powerful sorcerer, immortal gargoyles, and above all, forced partnership with Isabel de Saint-Gil, a renegade fairy all-too-familiar to Griffont…
A whirlwind of mysterious events will lift the veil concealing Griffont’s past, as well as an ancient secret that threatens to rock the throne of Ambremer, coveted by the Black Queen.
