Darkly magical and beautifully imagined, The Mask of Mirrors is the unmissable start to the Rook & Rose trilogy, a rich and dazzling fantasy adventure in which a con artist, a vigilante and a crime lord must unite to save their city.
Nightmares are creeping through the city of dreams....
Renata Virdaux is a con artist who has come to the sparkling city of Nadezra - the city of dreams - with one goal: to trick her way into a noble house and secure her fortune and her sister's future.
But as she's drawn into the aristocratic world of House Traementis, she realises her masquerade is just one of many surrounding her. And as corrupted magic begins to weave its way through Nadezra, the poisonous feuds of its aristocrats and the shadowy dangers of its impoverished underbelly become tangled - with Ren at their heart.

Engaging Story ontop of a lot of Worldbuilding
The book might take a while to get into, as for the first few chapters readers are swarmed by concepts, names and other world-building elements. Most of these pay off later and succeed in painting a rich picture of an engaging fantasy world. Meanwhile, the story starts of as a simple heist and evolves gradually in a city spanning conflict. Once it gets going, the fantastic performances make it hard to put the book down. If you are looking for high fantasy and you have a tolerance for a bit preloaded of world-building, this book will certainly keep you entertained.
