Publisher's Summary

The winds of change are blowing through Paris in the winter of 1789, both for France and for our hero, a striking and mysterious Gypsy boy named Yann Margoza. He was born with a gift for knowing what people are thinking and an uncanny ability to throw his voice, and he has been using those skills while working for a rather foolish magician.That work will soon end, however, and on the night of the magician's final performance, Yann's life will truly begin. That's the night he meets shy Sido, an heiress with a cold-hearted father, a young girl who has only known loneliness until now. Though they have the shortest of conversations, an attachment is born that will influence both their paths.And what paths those will be! While Revolution is afoot in France, Sido is being used as the pawn of a fearful villain who goes by the name Count Kalliovski. Some have instead called him the devil, and only Yann, for Sido's sake, will dare to oppose him.

Great helped

I never actually use time to read the book so getting the audiobook saved alot of time. that way I could read by cleaning walking to school eating etc. Im so happy I didn't have to read it myself. And the narrator made different voices for different characters which also was a big help.

Where's the Abridged Version?

I wanted to purchase the abridged version, which is only available in the U.K. While I don't normally do abridged versions, this one is read by Tom Hiddleston, who is a phenomenal actor. While this version is fine, the narrator is very dry and lacks emotional depth.
