  • "This rich tapestry of intrigue, betrayal, trauma, protection, old religion, and historically based politics resurrects the urgency and depth of the His Fair Assassin series. Sharp and breathless, full of anger and strength."

  • "Thoroughly developed female protagonists are models for young women . . . LaFevers leads the audience on a lighting-paced chase through a story of adventure, romance and ever-deepening medieval intrigue. A first-purchase gem that will delight fans and engage newcomers"

    School Library Journal
  • "LaFevers yet again skillfully pulls from the history of the 15th century French-Breton War to create a richly developed world of political intrigue, while casting it with deeply relatable and fully fleshed out characters"

    Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
  • "Alternating between Sybella’s and Genevieve’s voices, LaFevers maintains an intense pitch of intrigue: murders, assaults, romance, betrayals, and erotic encounters follow one after another with plenty of garrotes, swords, daggers, poisoned sewing needles, and the like"

    The Horn Book Magazine
  • "…dangerous and intoxicating – sure to leave readers wanting more."
