The Betrayals by Bridget Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Leo and Carfax are rivals and friends, learning and playing the “grand jeu” at Montverre school. Years later, Leo is back but under much different circumstances and playing a whole different type of game – one which has ramifications in his past and that of his contemporaries. The “grand Jeu” really is a game of life and death.

You only need to look at the beautiful cover of this novel to fall in love with it. I don’t know how it’s been done but my ARC has a soft feel to it and it just makes me want to hold it and to read it before I’ve even opened it!

The “grand jeu” is based on “The Glass Bead Game” but has a story, characters and history all of it’s own and it’s not an exaggertation to say I loved them all.

Come into this wonderful story to read of Leo, Aime, Carfax, Emile, Simon, The Rat and so many more; I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down.

Thank you to LoveReading for this amazing ARC.
