Stuck in Your Head # 4

I'm going to give you the line from the books I've read that make my mind crave the rest like coke.
(It’s my version of Teaser Tuesday, just so you know)

‘You know what the worst part was, mouse?’
   ‘Those two fingers had all my best rings on them. Now, whenever I see a bear I follow him home to see if he’s shat out my jewels.’
Page 132, paperback

Other Covers

Wynter returns from a five-year exile in the bleak Northlands to find her beloved homeland in turmoil. King Jonathan’s civilised, multicultural realm is no more; the gibbets and cages have returned. Days of laughter, friendly ghosts and gossipy cats remain only in Wynter’s memory—the present confronts her with power play, dark torture chambers, violent ghosts, and cats (those still alive) too scared to talk to humans. The Inquisition is a real and present danger.

Crown Prince Alberon is missing. There are murmurings of a Bloody Machine’ of untold destructive power. And as Wynter and her friends, Prince Razi and the mysterious Christopher Garron, seek to restore stability to the fragile kingdom while risking death at every turn, Wynter is forced to make a terrible choice.

Set in a fantastical medieval Europe, The Poison Throne is a gothic tale of intrigue, adventure and romance which draws the reader in from the very first sentence and doesn’t loosen its grip until the last
