Reviews

The Prisoner of the Castle of Enlightenment's gripping story will delight readers seeking both complexity and evocative reading. - D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

"I grew to like it more and more as the page count continued" - Chicago Center for Literature and Photography

"Set against an exquisitely rendered French gothic backdrop, The Prisoner of the Castle of Enlightenment is an intelligently erotic page-turner not to be missed." - Joe McGinniss Jr., Kirkus Prize finalist and author of Carousel Court and The Delivery Man

"At the center of Therese Doucet's enchanting debut novel is a library teeming with rare and unusual volumes. The Prisoner of the Castle of Enlightenment feels like a book pulled from its shelves, a heady mix of historical fiction, fairy tale, philosophy, demonology, and romance. Call it baroquepunk--a fantasy of the French Enlightenment with a libertine edge and a goth heartbeat." -- Jeff Jackson, author of Destroy All Monsters and Los Angeles Times Book Prize finalist

The Prisoner of the Castle of Enlightenment took me on a journey, to France, to centuries ago, to the exotic and erotic castle where ideas and philosophy are debated and fought over, and the desire to learn more, to be more, to love more deepens, especially as night descends. Unforgettable. A fabulist, fabulous tale from a new novelist to watch. -- Caroline Bock, author of Carry Her Home, Before My Eyes and Lie
