The following is an honest review of Hotel Magnifique by Emily J. Taylor and my suggested age rating.
Synopsis of Hotel Magnifique
Jani and her sister Zosa are barely scraping by. Orphaned and left to provide for themselves, they both dream of Elsewhere and the Hotel Magnifique. By some scheming and manipulation, Jani lands her and Zosa an interview to work as staff members for the Hotel. Almost immediately Jani can tell that the Hotel Magnifique is full of full of secrets, most of them dangerous. Jani also realizes that her sister is nowhere to be found and so she sets off to not only find her sister, but to uncover the secrets to the Hotel Magnifique’s enchantments.
Review of Hotel Magnifique
The cover of this book alone immediately drew me in. Then I read the synopsis and was hooked even more. It has everything I love: mystery, fantasy, a magical system, and historical setting. The imagination and premise behind this book is great, however, the execution didn’t fully live up to my standards. While I enjoyed this book, there were times were I felt it was dragging on and I didn’t have a hard time putting it down like I had hoped. While I still enjoyed it, t(he world building, magic system, and characters), the pacing made it less enjoyable. I would still recommend this book because of its concepts, but just know it probably won’t be a book you fly through.
I gave this book 4/5 stars on Goodreads.
Suggested Age Rating for Hotel Magnifique
I would give this book an age rating of 13-14+. There wasn’t anything that stood out to me as offensive and it is rightly in the young adult category.
