Review:

'Wonderfully sinister and thrillingly romantic, Venom has it all - secret trysts in graveyards, Venetian canals, murdered courtesans, and masquerades! Fiona Paul created a lush, compelling mystery I couldn't put down.' - Jessica Spotswood, author of Born Wicked. 'Deftly balancing beauty and death, Venom renders the canals of Renaissance Venice frightening and irresistible in a sensual tale where no one can be trusted and passions kill.' - Andrea Cremer, author of the Nightshade trilogy.
