About the Author

Addie Thorley spent her childhood playing soccer, riding horses, and scribbling stories. After graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in journalism, she decided "hard news" didn't contain enough magic and kissing, so she flung herself into the land of fiction and never looked back. When she's not writing, she can be found galloping around the barn where she works as a horse trainer and exercise rider. She currently lives in Princeton, New Jersey with her husband, daughter, and wolf dog. An Affair of Poisons is her debut novel. You can find her online at www.addiethorley.com or on Twitter @addiethorley.

Reviews

* "This debut novelist manages to set the tone, introduce the characters, and kill the King of France all in the first chapter... [A] fast-paced and refreshing page-turner."
- 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

"A stunning, immersive adventure, filled with magic, self-discovery and sumptuous period detail. I fell in love with An Affair of Poisons!" - Lee Kelly, A Criminal Magic
