Publisher Description

Hotel Magnifique opened the door to a sumptuous and glittering world of magic and mysteries and left me enchanted. Perfect for fans of Caraval and The Night Circus.” –Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows and Small Favors
Decadent and darkly enchanting, this lavish YA fantasy debut follows seventeen-year-old Jani as she uncovers the deeply disturbing secrets of the legendary Hotel Magnifique.

All her life, Jani has dreamed of Elsewhere. Just barely scraping by with her job at a tannery, she’s resigned to a dreary life in the port town of Durc, caring for her younger sister Zosa. That is, until the Hotel Magnifique comes to town.
The hotel is legendary not only for its whimsical enchantments, but also for its ability to travel—appearing in a different destination every morning. While Jani and Zosa can’t afford the exorbitant costs of a guest’s stay, they can interview to join the staff, and are soon whisked away on the greatest adventure of their lives. But once inside, Jani quickly discovers their contracts are unbreakable and that beneath the marvelous glamour, the hotel is hiding dangerous secrets.
With the vexingly handsome doorman Bel as her only ally, Jani embarks on a mission to unravel the mystery of the magic at the heart of the hotel and free Zosa—and the other staff—from the cruelty of the ruthless maître d’hôtel. To succeed, she’ll have to risk everything she loves, but failure would mean a fate far worse than never returning home.

A delightful, original YA Fantasy Romance!

HOLY WOW!! This book was SO MUCH MORE THAN I EXPECTED!!! I am just left sitting here in awe!!!

The freaking world building is absolutely FANTASTIC!!!! With the hotel and all its magical oddities and how things change all the time. The hotel is so cool!!!

The characters, I loved and hated the characters so much!! I mean they were so real and affected me like they were meant to. I loved how at the center of the story is the two sisters who enter the hotel and end up separated and trying to get back to each other. Then there is Bel. I LOVED Bel. He tried so hard to help Jani, he truly cared what happened to her. Watching their relationship grow into a romance was one of my favorite things. But Jani made so many friends in the hotel. But then, of course there were the nasty people.

The whole concept was so original!! The idea of the Hotel Magnifique and how when guests left they forgot everything that happened there. Then the staff, when they entered, they forgot everything about their life before. That was such an interesting concept. As the story goes along more and more becomes revealed and it’s so surprising and unexpected!! You HAVE to read this!!!! It’s definitely a favorite book for me!!!!
