City Of A Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster. I must admit, the cover drew me to this novel. It is beautiful. The world building kept me in the fantastical city full of secrets and royal ambition.
A girl who was abandoned at the gates of the City of A Thousand Dolls searches for a killer and ends up learning more about her true heritage. This is a nice beginning to what will become a popular fantasy series. Especially if you adore cats…just saying…without giving away too much.
