Beautifully vicious’ Chloe Gong

There’s always a price for defying destiny.

Violet is a prophet and a liar, influencing the court as Seer with her cleverly phrased – and not always true – divinations. Honesty is for suckers, like the oh-so-not-charming Prince Cyrus, who plans to strip her of her title once he’s crowned.

After the king asks her to falsely prophesy Cyrus’s love story for an upcoming ball, Violet awakens a dreaded curse about the prince’s future bride. Her wits may protect her in the cutthroat court, but they can’t protect her against fate – nor the doomed attraction growing between her and the prince . . .

Reviews

Beautifully vicious. Filled with court machinations and cunning characters, Violet Made of Thorns is a fantasy you won't soon forget. Perfect for the fairytale reader who has always wanted the heroine to grow sharp teeth and bite Prince Charming
Chloe Gong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights
An enchanting dark fantasy that turns tropes upside down while making us fall in love with the titular Violet, whose droll opinions and cunning self-protectiveness offer us a beautifully layered and endlessly fascinating narrator
Sabaa Tahir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Ember in the Ashes series
Fantasy fans-rejoice! Violet Made of Thorns introduces us to a lush land where dark curses and magic reign. Chen's prose is a delight
Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows
The first thing I wanted to do when I finished Violet Made of Thorns was read it again. The second thing I wanted to do was write down all the moments that made me laugh, shiver, cry, fling the book across the room only to retrieve it five seconds later and apologize because I just can't put it down. Violet has everything: court intrigue, cruel witches, aloof but hot princes, ambitious girls who will do anything to win. If Gina Chen doesn't write five more of these I will riot
Victoria Lee, author of A Lesson in Vengeance and The Fever King

Entrancing from start to finish. Violet is a one-of-a-kind protagonist, and Gina Chen has spun a consummate fairytale that will have readers gasping and squealing in turn
Joan He, New York Times bestselling author of The Ones We're Meant to Find
Chen weaves a delightful, sparkling tale of a sharp-tongued antiheroine who will have readers rooting for her from page one
