Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“With characters that will inspire the imagination, a plot that nods to history while defying accuracy, and a love story that promises more in the second book, this is sure to attract feminist readers and romantics alike.” Booklist (starred review)
“Fiction and history coalesce in a rich, ripping tale of assassinations, political intrigue, and religion in fifteenth-century Brittany…LaFevers’ ambitious tapestry includes poison and treason and murder, valor and honor and slow love, suspense and sexuality and mercy. A page-turner with grace.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Rich in historical detail, well-realized characters, political machinations, and enticingly prickly scenes between Ismae and Duval, LaFevers’ complex tale incorporates magic both sparingly and subtly. This powerful first volume of the His Fair Assassin series should attract many readers.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Author Bio: Robin LaFevers

Robin LaFevers was raised on a steady diet of fairy tales, Bulfinch’s Mythology, and nineteenth-century poetry. It is not surprising she grew up to be a hopeless romantic. She is the author of over fourteen books for young readers, including the Theodosia series, and the Nathaniel Fludd series, among others.
