Glorious Poison by Kat Dunn
 Battalion of the Dead series, 3

The daring and dramatic conclusion to Kat Dunn's epic C18th French Revolution trilogy 'with lashings of lust, love, sacrifice, betrayal and horror'.

Robespierre is dead. The Reign of Terror is over. As Royalist strength grows, the Duc de L'Aubespine plots a coup that will consign the revolution to history. With Olympe in his clutches, he believes nothing can stop him. But he's reckoned without the intrepid Battalion of the Dead!

Reunited in Paris, Ada is poised for action – but if she plays her hand too soon, everything she's sacrificed to gain his trust will be lost. Meanwhile, an unlikely alliance with an old enemy might be Camille's only option to save Olympe and stop the duc in his tracks.

The glittering and macabre bals des victimes and the eerie catacombs make the perfect backdrop for the final episode of the Battalion's tale.

PRAISE FOR KAT DUNN:

'Part steampunk adventure, part historical thriller... What follows is an enthralling, fast-paced adventure with a cast of likable characters' Guardian.

'The Battalion of the Dead series has everything you could want from an historical YA fantasy: adventure, opulence, lies, science, magic and a captivating band of rebellious characters at its heart' CultureFly.

'The characters are well drawn and each one feels fully fleshed-out... So while this adventure is complete in itself, you'll look forward to the next in the series' SFX Magazine.

'A sizzling YA debut. A tale of family found, queer love, magic and science, set against the perilous days of the French Revolution' Armadillo.

'Dangerous Remedy is a swashbuckling thrill ride of a debut with protagonists who'll have you on the edge of your seat. This is life or death stuff!'
