Description

In this lush, romantic new epic fantasy series from New York Times bestselling author Hannah Whitten, a young woman’s secret power to raise the dead plunges her into the dangerous and glamorous world of the Sainted King’s royal court.

When Lore was thirteen, she escaped a cult in the catacombs beneath the city of Dellaire. And in the ten years since, she’s lived by one rule: don’t let them find you. Easier said than done, when her death magic ties her to the city.
 
Mortem, the magic born from death, is a high-priced and illicit commodity in Dellaire, and Lore’s job running poisons keeps her in food, shelter, and relative security. But when a run goes wrong and Lore’s power is revealed, she’s taken by the Presque Mort, a group of warrior-monks sanctioned to use Mortem working for the Sainted King. Lore fully expects a pyre, but King August has a different plan. Entire villages on the outskirts of the country have been dying overnight, seemingly at random. Lore can either use her magic to find out what’s happening and who in the King’s court is responsible, or die.
 
Lore is thrust into the Sainted King’s glittering court, where no one can be believed and even fewer can be trusted. Guarded by Gabriel, a duke-turned-monk, and continually running up against Bastian, August’s ne'er-do-well heir, Lore tangles in politics, religion, and forbidden romance as she attempts to navigate a debauched and opulent society.
 
But the life she left behind in the catacombs is catching up with her. And even as Lore makes her way through the Sainted court above, they might be drawing closer than she thinks.

Praise

"Hannah Whitten is my favorite obsession, and her new series is all I can think about. I'm obsessed with The Foxglove King?a perfect concoction of intrigue, magic, thwarted love, and writing as delicate and deeply affecting as the petals of a poisonous plant."—Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author
"The Foxglove King is beautifully written, lushly cinematic, unsettlingly mysterious—an unputdownable story of humans and gods. Hannah Whitten has built a world that is as dark as it is fascinating, romantic and disturbing. If you like found families, courtly intrigue, high-stake secrets, hot priests, powerful characters who are on a journey to accepting themselves and learning to wield their powers, and a dash (okay, more than that) of necromancy, The Foxglove King will be the book of your dreams—and your nightmares."—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis
"I am OBSESSED with this book! Hannah Whitten just keeps getting better and better."—Katee Robert, New York Times bestselling author
"The Foxglove King is a decadent and deadly feast of a novel, brimming with romance, intrigue, and twisted magic. Whitten's sumptuous prose and layered, captivating characters sucked me in immediately and kept me riveted until the last page. I have no doubt that readers will devour this book with the same enthusiasm I did." —C. L. Herman, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of All of Us Villains
"The Foxglove King is a delicious fantasy. Sinister, deadly, and so seductive you won't be able to tear yourself away from this dark gem of a book." —Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Once Upon A Broken Heart
"Darkly sumptuous and beautifully dangerous, The Foxglove King wraps you up in a velvet gown and then holds a knife to your throat."—Ava Reid, bestselling author of The Wolf and the Woodsman
"Dripping with dark opulence and sizzling intrigue, The Foxglove King proves Hannah Whitten is a literary force to be reckoned with. Never before have I been so completely captivated." —Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows
“Set in a glittering world of twisted magic and fallen gods, The Foxglove King boasts an intoxicating combination of mystery, magic and romance, twined with impeccable tension and characters I instantly became obsessed with. I could not put it down."—H. M. Long, author of Hall of Smoke
Praise for the Wilderwood duology:

"Drenched in atmosphere, with sharp and biting prose, Whitten’s For the Wolf is a glorious journey through woods deep and so very dark. A stunning debut." ?Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows

“A brilliant dark fantasy debut. I loved it! I was completely swept away by the world-building, the characters, and the delicate gorgeousness of the writing.” ?Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author

"Atmospheric, folkloric, and half-familiar. If you ever wished Beauty and the Beast had more eldritch forest monsters and political machinations, this is the romance for you." ?Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January

"Whitten weaves a captivating tale in this debut, in which even secondary characters come to feel like old friends. The novel seamlessly blends 'Little Red Riding Hood' and 'Beauty and the Beast' into an un-put-down-able fairy tale that traces the boundaries of duty, love, and loss. A masterful debut from a must-read new voice in fantasy." ?Kirkus

"Whitten debuts with a dark, dazzling reimagining of 'Little Red Riding Hood'...Whitten lovingly weaves in elements from other fairy tales, including 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Snow White,' while crafting a story that is all her own. With clever, immersive prose and a subtle touch of horror, this is sure to enchant." ?Publishers Weekly
