Paris: A City Of Fools (The Change #3)

By Pamelascott
Paris: A City Of Fools (The Change #3)Where were you when the world changed?

One minute everything was fine and the next... they arrived. Those that saw them died instantly. The unlucky ones survived. Now unimaginable things straight out of nightmares roam the streets of our towns and cities. Nothing is impossible. Nowhere is safe. And no one can escape The Change...

Loïc's friend Adrien is gone, kidnapped by the Impressionists, bizarre men made of paint who roam the Parisian catacombs. Now, if Loïc wants to see Adrien again, he must travel to the Louvre and bring him back from the lair of the strange - and deadly - Impressionists.

But the paint-men are not the only threat lurking in Paris, and Loïc must face down the needle-fingered Tricoteuse, the blade-mouthed Madame Loisette, and the dark secrets that haunt the footlights of the Grand Guignol...

Paris: City of Fools is another cracking novella in The Change series. This is my favourite so far.

I loved the Paris setting. Paris is my favourite city in the world so I pretty much go gaga for any fiction set there.

I continue to be impressed by the original concept of The Change and how it has transformed the world into a place that is beautiful, strange and deadly at the same time. In each novella The Change has had a different effect on the setting.

Paris: A City of Fools is the darkest novella in the serious so far.

I loved the bizarre creatures known as The Impressionists, made from paint. Their concept is very original. I loved their idea of creating a museum of things from before the change, though the more sinister exhibits chilled me.

There's so much to enjoy about Paris: A City of Fools; the bizarre, human-sized puppets, Christine Daaé, the singer with bizarre powers and the sinister freaks of the Grand Guignol.

I had a great time reading this and look forward to reading the rest of the series.
