    Description

    From the number one best-selling author of The Binding.

    If everything in your life was based on a lie, would you risk it all to tell the truth? 

    At Montverre, an exclusive academy tucked away in the mountains, the best and brightest are trained for excellence in the grand jeu: an arcane and mysterious contest. Léo Martin was once a student there but lost his passion for the grand jeu following a violent tragedy. Now he returns in disgrace, exiled to his old place of learning with his political career in tatters. 

    Montverre has changed since he studied there, even allowing a woman, Claire Dryden, to serve in the grand jeu’s highest office of Magister Ludi. When Léo first sees Claire he senses an odd connection with her, though he’s sure they have never met before. Both Léo and Claire have built their lives on lies. And as the legendary Midsummer Game, the climax of the year, draws closer, secrets are whispering in the walls....

    Commentaires

    "The Betrayals is a beautiful dystopian romance about coming of age as an artist and the love affair artistic collaboration can be, while also being an acute political novel about the fate of spiritual values in a totalitarian system. A rich delight." (Sandra Newman)

    "It’s just beautiful - written with such elegance and poise. What I love about Bridget's books is her ability to write the most magical worlds of escapism and yet anchor those worlds very much in today." (Joanna Cannon)

    "She’s done it again: this is another triumph from the incomparable imagination of Bridget Collins. The Betrayals sinks its teeth into you and won’t let you go. It’s a mesmerising, intimate and ambitious story about art, love and what it means to be human. If you loved The Binding, you’ll adore The Betrayals." (Erin Kelly)

    Suffering through it - don’t care for the characters/story nor narration

    Chapter 1: Forced myself to get through the ENTIRE chapter about a rat which I’m still confused about whether this is a girl or a rat. Almost gave up and returnes the book at chapter 1 but thought I’d persist.
    Léo: was called ‘Arrogant, unkind, self absorbed’ by another character which is nicer than what I would have written. Initially thought the woman called him Theo then realised it’s Leo. Still can’t draw up any sympathy for him. Don’t like the narrator’s accent for Léo - doesn’t fit what a Minister for Culture would sound like to me. Couldn’t even cooperate with his class mate who is top ranked for a grand jeu game - so immature and somewhat emotionally bullies the other. No redeeming qualities that I’ve discovered
    Grand jeu: what a cop out to say you can’t describe the game and then say it isn’t music, math etc but never really paint what it is
    Magister: every single time this word is narrated ‘ma-gi-ster’ I wince (g like guitar not g like magic magician; if this was the intended pronunciation the maggister like maggot would make more sense). That’s a lot of wincing in this book.
    Contemplating whether to DNF and return but still trying to continue to listen to whether this is the same book that some rate so highly

    Beautiful performances, story not quite at the level of The Binding

    A very entertaining read, and beautifully performed. The idea of the grand jeu is intoxicating. The story is often a little strained though, and certain interesting characters are underdeveloped.

    A really enjoyable listen

    It took me a little while to get into it, but once I was in, I really enjoyed it. Romance, intelligent prose, a beautiful setting and plenty of intrigue. It's imaginative and not like something I have read before. I would highly recommend.
