Mini Review: House of Marionne

Rich is the blood of the chosen

17 year-old Quell has lived her entire life on the run. She and her mother have fled from city to city, in order to hide the deadly magic that flows through Quell’s veins. 

Until someone discovers her dark secret.

To hide from the assassin hunting her, and keep her mother out of harm’s way, Quell reluctantly inducts into a debutante society of magical social elites called the Order that she never knew existed. If she can pass their three rites of membership, mastering their proper form of magic, she’ll be able to secretly bury her forbidden magic forever. 

If caught, she will be killed.

But becoming the perfect debutante is a lot harder than Quell imagined, especially when there’s more than tutoring happening with Jordan, her brooding mentor and— assassin in training. 

When Quell uncovers the deadly lengths the Order will go to defend its wealth and power, she’s forced to choose: embrace the dark magic she’s been running from her entire life or risk losing everything, and everyone, she’s grown to love.

Still, she fears the most formidable monster she’ll have to face is the one inside.

Mini Book Review:

I liked this more than I thought I would. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy magical boarding school with debutants. Quell has been on the run her whole life and she went to seek refuge from her grandmother. Quell's grandmother is a powerful head mistress of a magical house that quell is now part of. Quell is now going to be a debutante and train in magic. She is also keeping a deadly secret. I feel like the world building was a bit lacking and there was a lot of tropes. I enjoyed this book however was lacking in a lot of areas as well.
