First I am not familiar with The Count of Monte Cristo. Its a retelling of this story.
I have a bit of a hard time to get into it for the first couple of chapters but I did enjoyed reading it.
Scavenge the stars is the story of a young woman, Amaya, who wants revenge againts the man who ruined her family and stole years of her life. She will also uncover truth of her past and about her father.
