New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Absorbing and arresting. New York Times

Fascinating and factual. Los Angeles Times

Chilly, witty, and completely engrossing ... great, good fun. Kirkus Reviews

An outstanding historical novel of 17th century France ... based on a real life scandal known as the Affaire des Poisons, this tale is riveting from start to finish. Library Journal

For a handful of gold, Madame de Morville will read your future in a glass of swirling water. You'll believe her, because you know she's more than 150 years old and a witch, and she has all of Paris in the palm of her hand. But Madame de Morville hides more behind her black robes than you know. Her real age, the mother and uncle who left her for dead, the inner workings of the most secret society of Parisian witches: none of these truths would help her outwit the rich who so desperately want the promise of the future. After all, it's her own future she must control , no matter how much it is painted with uncertainty and clouded by vengeance.

Take a full cup of wit, two teaspoons of brimstone, and a dash of poison, and you have Judith Merkle Riley's mordant, compelling tale of an ambitious young woman who disguises herself as an ancient prophetess in order to gain entry into the dangerous, scheming glamour of the Sun King's court. Based on scandalous true events, The Oracle Glass brims with our human foibles, passions, and eccentricities it's a classic of the genre and unlike any historical novel you have ever read. C. W. Gortner, author of The Confessions of Catherine de Medici
