Synopsis

The legendary Hotel Magnifique is like no other: a magical world of golden ceilings, enchanting soirees and fountains flowing with champagne. It changes location every night, stopping in each place only once a decade. When the Magnifique comes to her hometown, seventeen-year-old Jani hatches a plan to secure jobs there for herself and her younger sister, longing to escape their dreary life.



Luck is on their side, and with a stroke of luminous ink on paper the sisters are swept into a life of adventure and opulence. But Jani soon begins to notice sinister spots in the hotel's decadent facade. Who is the shadowy maitre who runs the hotel? And can the girls discover the true price paid by those who reside there - before it's too late?

Customer Reviews

Hotel Magnifique follows the story of two sisters who gain employment at a mysterious, magical hotel that travels to a new location every night. Jani is to work as a maid and wants to provide for her younger sister Zosa after their mother died and left them orphaned. Zosa, who has a beautiful voice is employed as a singer. Shortly after securing contracts to work at the hotel, Jani realizes that all is not as it appears. Something dark and sinister lurks beneath the dazzling, luxurious surroundings. Determined to save her sister, Jani uncovers the dark secrets of the hotel with the help of a few allies including Bel, a handsome magician. Hotel Magnifique is richly imagined with an interesting magic system, that is both enchanting and dark. There is a slow burn romance, but this is really a story about the love between two sisters, and the lengths they will go to protect each other. The writing and dialogue could, at times, be simplistic, which made me think it was oriented to a younger YA reader. It was a spellbinding, enjoyable and compelling read with some unexpected twists and turns. Thank you to BookishFirst for a review copy.
