Girl, Serpent, Thorn has a wonderful fairy-tale feel, combining Persian mythology with elements of Sleeping Beauty, to give us the story of a girl who is poisonous to the touch as she is determined to find her place in the magical world around her.
Paris, 1828. The city reels from the failed Revolution. The Royal Court rules the city by day and nine criminal guilds rule the streets at night. When Nina Thenardier’s money-hungry father sells her beloved sister to the Tiger, the brutish Lord of the Guild of Flesh, Nina swears to do all she can to free Azelma from his clutches.
