Review quote

PRAISE FOR DANGEROUS REMEDY:

'Lashings of lust, love, sacrifice, betrayal and horror' Melinda Salisbury, author of Hold Back the Tide.

'An intelligent, lush and rollicking opener to what promises to be your new YA obsession. Vivid, dark, and complex - I fell under Dangerous Remedy's spell from the very first page' Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Deathless Girls.

'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.

'A gripping adventure of daring escapades and dazzling set-piece scenes. Between these pages you'll find heart-pounding romance, wit, trickery, danger and a uniquely brilliant kind of magic' -- Kesia Lupo, author of We Are Bound by Stars
