Want to Read Wednesday – An Affair of Poisons

Hello Humans! Looking through my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads it is more than apparent that I’m getting rather excited about 2019 releases, and today’s pick is no exception. I thought I’d branch out and look at some upcoming historical fiction today with An Affair of Poisons.

An Affair of Poisons, Addie Thorley

 Goodreads Summary:

After 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 Shadow Society assassinates the Sun King and half the royal court, 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 derelict 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?

I’m on a roll with murder books at the moment and this seems like it’ll be great, roll on February when this releases!
