Lee and Victoria weren’t the only ones to love ““Foul Lady Fortune” by Chloe Gong… Here is what the QBD crew thought:

CALLING ALL YA FANS: New York Times bestselling author Chloe Gong is BACK with the first book in her brand-new spin-off duology!

Spies. A Fake Marriage. A Murder Mystery. Set in 1930s Shanghai, this magnificent story follows Rosalind and Orion. Four years ago, Rosalind Lang was brought back from the brink of death by a strange experiment. The outcome: she lives, but she is now paused from ageing, can heal from any wound, and basically – cannot die. Desperate for redemption for her traitorous past, she uses her abilities as an assassin for her country. Code name: Fortune. To reduce suspicion, she must pose as the wife of another Nationalist spy, Orion Hong. Although Rosalind finds Orion’s attitude and demeanour infuriating, she is willing to work with him for the greater good. But Orion has an agenda of his own. As they both attempt to unravel a conspiracy, the two spies soon find that there are deeper and more horrifying layers to this mystery than they ever imagined.

Fans of “These Violent Delights” and “Our Violent Ends” will be happy to know that their beloved fictional world is inviting them inside once again. In keeping with the first duology, “Foul Lady Fortune” creatively follows a range of characters and their points of view. Alongside her expert character building, Chloe Gong has created a plot that is fast-paced and incredibly intriguing. Get ready – this story will hook you from the first chapter and keep you in its grips until the very end.
