Description

Following the thrills and spills of Dangerous Remedy, the Battalion of the Dead return in a dazzling new adventure, set amid the opulence and squalour of 18th-century London and Paris.

1794, London: Camille and Al are desperately hunting Olympe's kidnapper. From the glamorous excesses of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens to the city's seedy underbelly, they are caught in a dangerous game of lies and deceit. And a terrible new enemy lies in wait with designs more monstrous than they could ever imagine... Can Camille play on to the end or will she be forced to show her hand?

In Paris, the Duc is playing his own dangerous games. With Ada in his thrall, old loyalties are thrown into question. The Battalion are torn apart as never before, and everything - Ada's love for Camille, her allegiance to the battalion itself - is under threat.

PRAISE FOR DANGEROUS REMEDY:

'The deadly world of the French Revolution gets a fantastical twist in the first of a 'dazzling, commercial' new series following a diverse band of fearless rebels. Wonderfully atmospheric fill of strange science, mysterious powers and fearless heroines' The Bookseller.

'Dark, deadly and delicious. A thrilling adventure set in a lavish but ruthless world, with a spirited cast of characters you will root for instantly' Bex Hogan, author of Viper.

'Kat Dunn's captivating debut ... is part steampunk adventure, part historical thriller ... An enthralling, fast-paced adventure with a cast of likeable characters; Camille's relationship with her lover Ada is particularly well drawn. There's a neat denouement and the promise of sequels' Guardian.

'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.

'Dunn's delightful French Revolution-set debut pays homage to The Scarlet Pimpernel. The resourceful Camille and her girlfriend Ada attempt to survive both revolutionaries and royalists' i newspaper.
