Description

Book 2 in the Lady Slayers series, about French murderess and fortune teller Catherine Monvoisin
In 17th-century Paris, 19-year-old Catherine Monvoisin is a well-heeled
jeweler's wife with a peculiar taste for the arcane. She lives a
comfortable life, far removed from a childhood of abject
destitution--until her kind spendthrift of a husband lands them both in
debt. Hell-bent on avoiding a return to poverty, Catherine must rely on
her prophetic visions and the grimoire gifted to her by a talented
diviner to reinvent herself as a sorceress. With the help of the grifter
Marie Bosse, Catherine divines fortunes in the IIle de la Citee--home
to sorcerers and scoundrels.

There she encounters the Marquise de
Montespan, a stunning noblewoman. When the Marquise becomes Louis XIV's
royal mistress with Catherine's help, her ascension catapults Catherine
to notoriety. Catherine takes easily to her glittering new life as the
Sorceress La Voisin, pitting the depraved noblesse against one other to
her advantage. The stakes soar ever higher when her path crosses with
that of a young magician. A charged rivalry between sorceress and
magician leads to Black Masses, tangled deceptions, and grisly
murder--and sets Catherine on a collision course that threatens her own
life.
