Waiting on Wednesday: City of a Thousand Dolls

Hi everyone! For Waiting on Wednesday, I have…

City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster

The girl with no past, and no future, may be the only one who can save their lives.

Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was just a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her way as Matron’s assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city’s handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.

Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls’ deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls—but her own life.

Why I Chose this: Whoever wrote this summary knew exactly what would make Precious vibrate with excitement. City of a Thousand Dolls sound so intriguing. I want to know more about Nisha, girl assassins, and the deaths of the girls. Most importantly: What lies outside the walls?

What about you?
