Title The Kingdom of Back
Author Marie Lu
Born with a gift for music, Nannerl Mozart has just one wish: to be remembered forever. But even as she delights audiences with her masterful playing, she has little hope she’ll ever become the acclaimed composer she longs to be. She is a young woman in 18th century Europe, and that means composing is forbidden to her. She will perform only until she reaches a marriageable age; her tyrannical father has made that much clear. And as Nannerl’s hope grows dimmer with each passing year, the talents of her beloved younger brother, Wolfgang, only seem to shine brighter. His brilliance begins to eclipse her own, until one day a mysterious stranger from a magical land appears with an irresistible offer. He has the power to make her wish come true. But his help may cost her everything.
Ok so Marie Lu is pretty much amazing. I love everything she writes. Historical fiction, also amazing. I LOVE historical fiction. So what happens when one of my favorite writers puts her mind to one of my favorite genres?? Magic, that’s what!
This story sounds fascinating and I can’t wait to read it. We don’t have too much to go on from this description but the cover art is amazing and the little detail we get is a story that I’m dying to read.
