Praise for An Affair of Poisons

“This debut novelist manages to set the tone, introduce the characters, and kill the King of France all in the first chapter...This fast-paced and refreshing page-turner is recommended as a rst purchase for all libraries serving teens.”

School Library Journal, starred review

An Affair of Poisons is beautifully written; like one of Mirabelle's potions, it's the perfect blend of history and dark fantasy, with a tasteful splash of blood, a simmering romance, and an ending that leaves you wanting more.”

—Mary Taranta, author of Shimmer and Burn

“A rich immersion into a dangerous, alternative world of seventeenth century France… Thrilling, romantic, and addictive.”

— Rosalyn Eaves, author of the Blood Rose Rebellion trilogy

“An indulgent and exhilarating adventure, Thorley takes an extravagant historical setting and infuses it with a lusciously dark dose of magic and alchemy. An Affair of Poisons takes hold of the reader immediately and refuses to let go. The only cure is to finish it.”

—Lyndsay Ely, author of Gunslinger Girl
