It has been almost three years since Thorn disappeared. Encouraged by revelations from Farouk’s Book, our feisty heroine Orphelia decides to act—and continue to challenge authority in her quest for truth and freedom. Under a false identity, she travels to the ark of Babel, a joyful, modern and cosmopolitan territory. Hidden in the heart of Babel is an elusive secret, the key to the past and to an uncertain future. Will Ophelia’s talents as a reader be enough to avoid the traps of her increasingly formidable enemies? Does she have the slightest chance of finding Thorn again?
The Memory of Babel is the captivating third volume in Christelle Dabos’s hugely popular Mirror Visitor series, and ends on another almighty cliffhanger, before the final volume, due next year.
