YOUNG ADULT FICTION / Fantasy / General
Hotel Magnifique opened the door to a sumptuous and glittering world of magic and mysteries and left me enchanted. Perfect for fans of Caraval and The Night Circus.” –Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows and Small Favors



Decadent and darkly enchanting, this lavish YA fantasy debut follows seventeen-year-old Jani as she uncovers the deeply disturbing secrets of the legendary Hotel Magnifique.


All her life, Jani has dreamed of Elsewhere. Just barely scraping by with her job at a tannery, she’s resigned to a dreary life in the port town of Durc, caring for her younger sister Zosa. That is, until the Hotel Magnifique comes to town.



The hotel is legendary not only for its whimsical enchantments, but also for its ability to travel—appearing in a different destination every morning. While Jani and Zosa can’t afford the exorbitant costs of a guest’s stay, they can interview to join the staff, and are soon whisked away on the greatest adventure of their lives. But once inside, Jani quickly discovers their contracts are unbreakable and that beneath the marvelous glamour, the hotel is hiding dangerous secrets.



With the vexingly handsome doorman Bel as her only ally, Jani embarks on a mission to unravel the mystery of the magic at the heart of the hotel and free Zosa—and the other staff—from the cruelty of the ruthless maître d’hôtel. To succeed, she’ll have to risk everything she loves, but failure would mean a fate far worse than never returning home.

WON IN A HOT AUCTION: Razorbill snapped up Hotel Magnifique after an exciting auction between seven editors. Emily J. Taylor wanted to come to PYR because she’s seen what we can do with a big lead fantasy YA!



THE NIGHT CIRCUS MEETS THE HAZEL WOOD WITH SHADES OF CARAVAL: Hotel Magnifique reads like the best of YA fantasy. It’s tightly plotted, well paced, and accessible. Emily has created a magnificent world that feels completely unique and special. At the heart of our story is a scrappy, smart heroine learning to come to terms with the powerful magic she now controls, all while falling in love with a handsome, mysterious magician. Who could ask for more?



A SENSATIONAL SETTING: This story takes place mostly inside of the magical titular Hotel Magnifique, a grand, Belle Époque-inspired hotel that’s filled to the brim with charms and enchantments. From the extravagant illusions at the lavish soirees to the enchanted windows that show guests only the best views to the hotel rooms that personalize themselves to their guests, readers will love to get lost in the wonder of this world.



CHARMING AND PROMOTABLE AUTHOR: Emily is a creative director working in advertising in Minneapolis. She’s already well versed in the Minneapolis literary scene and she is super enthusiastic, personable, and ready to make this book the best (and biggest!) it can be.



A SATISFYING STANDALONE: Hotel Magnifique is a standalone fantasy, but we have another book lined up with Emily for 2023.

Emily J. Taylor was born and raised in California and has since refused to stay put. She’s lived in four states and on two continents, all of which have conveniently given her an endless amount of story fodder. She currently works as a creative director in Minneapolis, where she spends the long winters dreaming up glittering worlds to spin into dark tales.  Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @emilycanwrite, or find her on her website at emilyjtaylorauthor.com.
