From the bestselling author of The Missing of Clairdelune: third in the epic fantasy series that “stands on the same shelf as Harry Potter” (Elle).
As Christelle Dabos’s gripping saga continues, Ophelia, the mirror-traveling heroine, finds herself on the ark of Babel guarding a secret that may provide a key both to the past and the future.
After two years and seven months biding her time on Anima, her home ark, it is finally time to act, to put what she has discovered in the Book of Farouk to use. Under an assumed identity she travels to Babel, a cosmopolitan and thoroughly modern ark that is the jewel of the universe.
Will Ophelia’s talent as a reader suffice to avoid being lured into a deadly trap by her ever more fearful adversaries? Will she ever see Thorn, her betrothed, again?
“Ophelia is . . . the tiny-voiced powerhouse you can’t take your eyes off.” —The New York Times
“Dabos pushes full steam ahead with new arks, new spirits, and new treachery . . . Murder, power grabs, and world-rupturing revelations fly by in this penultimate volume.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The Memory of Babel is rich with memorable inventions: spells, transfigurations, prophecies, metamorphoses, dreams, arks, Citaceleste, ciphered manuscripts, enchanted mirrors. Ophelia is the Alice of the 21st century.” —Il Borghese
“As with the other books in the series, this is rich in detail, plot, and characterizations. The complexity of Dabos’s world-building once again immerses readers in a new world.” —School Library Journal
