Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody


Book Summary:

A darkly irresistible new fantasy set in the infamous Gomorrah Festival, a traveling carnival of debauchery that caters to the strangest of dreams and desires.

Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

But no matter how lifelike they may seem, her illusions are still just that—illusions, and not truly real. Or so she always believed…until one of them is murdered.

Desperate to protect her family, Sorina must track down the culprit and determine how they killed a person who doesn’t actually exist. Her search for answers leads her to the self-proclaimed gossip-worker Luca, and their investigation sends them through a haze of political turmoil and forbidden romance, and into the most sinister corners of the Festival. But as the killer continues murdering Sorina’s illusions one by one, she must unravel the horrifying truth before all of her loved ones disappear. 

My Review:

This book is about an girl name Sorina with the girl of illusions. She made up her tight knit family and friends on the road. Mostly she is like an loner keeping to self and preforming her act for her father figure. Then one night one her illusions Gill dies and it’s up to her to find out what’s happening within her family and learn the truth before everyone she loves dies one by one. This book is filled with magic and fantasy, sometimes you don’t know what is real or fake anymore. As you dive into Amanda Foody new book you get an long history lesson, all the while trying to find out who the killer is. So enter the freak show for yourself and find the answers you may seek for yourself. Congrats on a happy release day for Amanda Foody today. Happy Reading!
