I have always been interested and intrigued by Marie Lu's works. This new novel hold up to my expectations having read many of her previous work if not even better. The story is a mix of historical fiction and fantasy told in the perspective of a hidden character, the shadow behind the spotlight which shines on the famous Wolfgang Mozart. Lu's introduction in the beginning was brilliant, giving summary and curiosity to the story as the reader moves throughout the novel. A young women expects her dream of being a music composer in historical London to be impossible and all the recognition she should be getting goes to her equally talented younger brother. Through emotions of envy and hope, the sister of the great composer and musician might be getting the magical dream she has always wishes for, and of course, all wishes come with a price.
