Court of Shadows Summary

Court of Shadows by Madeleine Roux

From the New York Times bestselling author of Asylum comes the second book in a creepy fantasy series that Publishers Weekly praised as "darkly delightful." Perfect for fans of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

After the frightful events of last autumn, seventeen-year-old Louisa Ditton has settled into her role as a maid at Coldthistle House, a place of distortions and lies, but she has not settled into what that means for her humanity.

As Louisa struggles to figure out whether she is worthy of redemption, the devilish Mr. Morningside plans a fete-one that will bring new guests to Coldthistle House. From wicked humans to Upworlders, angelic beings who look down on Mr. Morningside's monstrous staff, all are armed with their own brand of self-righteous justice.

Even a man claiming to be Louisa's father has a role to play, though what his true motive is, Louisa cannot tell. The conflicts will eventually come to a head on the grounds of Coldthistle House-and the stakes include Louisa's very soul.

In this second book of Madeleine Roux's suspenseful House of Furies series, illustrations from artist Iris Compiet and chilling photographs help bring to life a twisted world where the line between monsters and men is ghostly thin.

"Takes the reader on a twisting path down a dark hall we're compelled to travel, no matter what is behind the door at the end. Darkly captivating." -Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award-winning author of A Madness So Discreet, on House of Furies
