About The Foxglove King

The Foxglove King is a gorgeous, heady, dark, and sparkling fantasy. War is coming to Dellaire and Lore’s forbidden necromancy might be the only thing that can save them. But how does she navigate the treacherous path between the mad king, divine fate, religious fanatics, and her heart?

My thoughts about The Foxglove King

I adored this world of dark magic, political intrigue, poison addicts, and forbidden love.

The world-building was rich with details and the magic system – intriguing yet easy to understand.

Lore was a fantastic character – smart, adaptable, strong but kind, loyal, and uninterested in her fate of saving the world. That she guarded her heart but couldn’t deny her attraction to both the disgraced, one-eyed Duke, Gabriel and the gorgeous, party boy (or is he?) heir, Prince Bastian made the book even more fun to read.
