"When Lore was thirteen, she escaped a cult in the catacombs beneath the city of Dellaire. And in the ten years since, she's lived by one rule: don't let them find you. Easier said than done, when her death magic ties her to the city. Mortem, the magic born from death, is a high-priced and illicit commodity in Dellaire, and Lore's job running poisons keeps her in food, shelter, and relative security. But when a run goes wrong and Lore's power is revealed, she's taken by the Presque Mort, a group of warrior-monks sanctioned to use Mortem working for the Sainted King. Lore fully expects a pyre, but King August has a different plan. Entire villages on the outskirts of the country have been dying overnight, seemingly at random. Lore can either use her magic to find out what's happening and who in the King's court is responsible, or die. Lore is thrust into the Sainted King's glittering court, where no one can be believed and even fewer can be trusted. Guarded by Gabriel, a duke-turned-monk, and continually running up against Bastian, August's ne'er-do-well heir, Lore tangles in politics, religion, and forbidden romance as she attempts to navigate a debauched and opulent society. But the life she left behind in the catacombs is catching up with her. And even as Lore makes her way through the Sainted court above, they might be drawing closer than she thinks"--… (mere)

I read this book so fast, I’m actually sad that it’s a series and that it’s not all written already. I want to know more so badly! ( )

Great worldbuilding in a unique fantasy world. I loved the way each reveal unfolded. Lore, Bastian, and Gabriel are interesting characters who balance each other, even when they seem antagonistic to each other. I've already preordered the next book. ( )

Lore grew up on the catacombs under the city. A catacomb inhabited by a cult. Now she runs poisons to keep a roof over her head and food in her belly. But Lore has a special ability. She can channel Mortem…Death Magic. But after an accident brings her powers to light of others she is taken by the Presque Mort to help figure out what is killing the villagers of outlying cities.

The Presque Mort is a group a special monks, and Gabriel is both her jailer and her accomplice in this task. But there is also Basition, heir to the Sainted King and ruler of the land, who is not exactly what the city things he is.

I was thoroughly engrossed in this book and was so disappointed when my audiobook ended, because it ended in the middle of a sentence. It turns out that my audiobook was 3 HOURS SHORT!!!! And no way to get a new download. And while I still have not finished this book, I fully plan to reread it in full when it the sequel comes out because I have to know more!!! ( )

Thank you to NetGally and Orbit Books for the ARC in exchange for my honest review.
Pub Date: March 7, 2023

I knew this was a series going into it but before I hit 100 pages I was already sad the rest of the series wasn’t out yet. I thought this was a really interesting and unique world that was built and I am excited to continue and watch how it grows. To be honest, when I first read the synopsis when the book was announced awhile ago I wasn’t really interested in it. But after following the author’s Instagram page and having her post snippets and thoughts about the book it reeled me in and I’m so glad it did. It is a bit hard for me to pin-point what I like about Whitten’s writing so much, but it just works for me.

The quote “Ah yes”...”the kneecaps are the eyes of the legs.” will forever make me giggle ( )

The Foxglove King by Hannah Whitten is a very interesting take in the morally gray hero. In a lot of books lately, it always seems to be the male protagonist, but in the case of this book, is the superb female protagonist, Lore. She is a “death witch” with the ability to channel and use Mortum (death) and manipulate the deceased. (How cool is that?!) Hers is part of a duality— the Spiritum gives life— and there hasn’t been anyone who could channel that in years… until now. Throughout the country, the citizens use poison to prolong their lives — such as Belladonna — and Lore works as a poison runner / spy. When she gets caught, she becomes a spy for the king August and his twin brother Anton. She has to spy on Prince Bastion to find out if he’s a traitor. Lore and her “fake cousin” Gabe (who’s a monk in the Presque Mort) infiltrate the royal court to seek out answers for why villages are being attacked and everyone killed.
This book has everything — slow burn, he falls first, morally gray characters, found family, world building, magic — everything that I could want in a fantasy novel. I can’t wait for book two! ( )
