City of Villains Book 1 (Volume 1)
City of Villains Book 1 (Volume 1) | Estelle Laure
5 posts | 3 read | 13 to read
Disney's Villains meet Gotham in this gritty fairy tale-inspired crime series. Mary Elizabeth Heart is a high school senior by day, but by night she's an intern at the Monarch City police department. She watches with envy from behind a desk as detectives come and go, trying to contain the city's growing crime rate. For years, tension has simmered between the city's wealthy elite, and their plans to gentrify the decaying neighborhood called the Scar - once upon a time the epicenter of all things magic. When the daughter of one of the city's most powerful businessmen goes missing, Mary Elizabeth is thrilled when the Chief actually puts her on the case. But what begins as one missing person's report soon multiplies, leading her down the rabbit hole of a city in turmoil. There she finds a girl with horns, a boyfriend with secrets, and what seems to be a sea monster lurking in a poison lake. As the mystery circles closer to home, Mary finds herself caught in the fight between those who once had magic, and those who will do anything to bring it back. This dark and edgy YA series explores the reimagined origins of Maleficent, Ursula, Captain Hook, and other infamous Disney Villains like you've never seen before.

This was so much fun! A different take on the Disney world with all the characters. Looking at things from the villains side you can understand why they are viewed as they are and why they‘ve done what have. It‘s an interesting perspective and seeing them as teens in a world similar to ours makes them relatable. I‘m really looking forward to more in this series as I can tell it‘s going to be epic.

So while Josh was at the docs having his toes cut open I was at the bookstore (docs wouldn‘t let me in because of Covid). I went on a bit of a spree. But I love finding books I‘ve not heard about and trying them out.

Two of these fit that mold, one is a #coverlove, and one I have to judge for Tournament of Books so I‘m reading it next. Any guess what book it is?

LaraS I‘m loving that Escaping Eleven cover! Giving me flashbacks to the Crow movie from the 90s... 2y
LibrarianRyan @LaraS I know right! I just made josh watch that last week. Won‘t lie, I like movie 2 better but I love that book cover. No idea what it‘s about. I bought it for the cover. 2y

Nest up is a book about Disney Villains I believe (Maleficent is on the cover duhhhh). Its supposed to be modern and gritty, ie outside the fairytale world. My friend and former staff member who reads and loves most the same things I do says this is an okay read. Her, and other reviews I have read say it's much more MG than YA, which is a good thing.
