Description
A thrilling and romantic debut fantasy for fans of breakout bestsellers Ash Princess and Sky in the Deep that reimagines the infamous 17th-century murder scandal in FranceAfter unwittingly helping her mother poison King Louis XIV, seventeen-year-old alchemist Mirabelle Monvoisin is forced to see her mother's Shadow Society in a horrifying new light: they're not heroes of the people, as they've always claimed to be, but murderers. Herself included. Mira tries to ease her guilt by brewing helpful curatives, but her hunger tonics and headache remedies cannot right past wrongs or save the dissenters her mother vows to purge.Royal bastard Josse de Bourbon is more kitchen boy than fils de France. But when the Sun King and half the royal court perish at the hands of the Shadow Society, he must become the prince he was never meant to be in order to save his injured sisters and the petulant dauphin. Forced to hide in the sewers beneath the city, any hope of reclaiming Paris seems impossible-until Josse's path collides with Mirabelle's, and he finds a surprising ally in his sworn enemy.She's a deadly poisoner. He's a bastard prince. Together, they form a tenuous pact to unite the commoners and former nobility against the Shadow Society. But can a rebellion built on mistrust ever hope to succeed?
