9780007476305: Untamed City: Carnival of Secrets

An extraordinary new world, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series.

Warriors Kaleb and Aya will stop at nothing to destroy their competition. But when Kaleb finds his fate entwined with that of Mallory, a seventeen-year-old human girl, he can't seem to separate the vicious Carnival contest he's entered from his sudden devotion to her. He and Aya may be prize fighters from the otherworldly Untamed City, but his strange, obsessive connection makes staying away from the witch-ruled human world, and Mallory, harder every day.

All Mallory knows of the Untamed City is what her elders have told her – that it's full of debauchery and daimons looking to destroy her. But she knows she's being pulled toward Kaleb with an emotion so fierce that it's utterly foreign. The two are forced apart by Mallory's overprotective witch father, stranded by necessity between warring populations that can't coexist. But when The City's ruler raises the stakes of the Carnival's prize, there's nothing Mallory, Kaleb, or Aya can do to stop the two worlds colliding. Mallory's about to discover her true identity – and stumble into a fate she'd die to avoid.

Fans of The Hunger Games will devour this tale of lush secrets, dark love, and the struggle to forge one's own destiny from the bestselling author of Wicked Lovely, Melissa Marr.

Product Description:

An extraordinary new world, from the New York Times bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series.

Enter the Carnival…

In a city of daimons, strict class lines control every aspect of life. At the heart of The City is the Carnival of Souls where, once in a generation, anyone can fight for their chance to join the elite.

Kaleb is of the lowest caste; Aya is ruling caste – but female. They both face bleak futures and, for each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live.

Mallory lives in the human world and knows little of The City, beyond the threat it poses her and her family. But soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence and danger that is the Carnival of Souls…

Combining Melissa Marr’s extraordinary world-building, breathtaking action, secrets, love and the struggle to forge one’s own destiny, Carnival of Souls will blow your mind and win your heart.

(Formerly published as Carnival of Souls)

Review:

“Marr offers readers a fully imagined faery world that runs alongside an everyday world, which even non-fantasy (or faerie) lovers will want to delve into” Publisher’s Weekly

“Marr’s world-building is complex and masterful, and through skilful plotting, she builds intrigue and suspense, with plenty of romance as well.” School Library Journal

“Melissa Marr has created another amazing world that pulls you in from the first page. The magic and mystery that is created between the covers of this book leave you wanting more, and with each turn of the page getting exactly what is needed.” bookalicious.org
