"For fans of juicy historical fiction, this one might just develop into their next obsession." EW.com

**An AudioFile Earphones Award-winning production**One of Paste Magazine's best audiobooks of 2019**

From the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of Labyrinth, comes the first in an epic new series.

Power and Prejudice: France, 1562. War sparks between the Catholics and Huguenots, dividing neighbors, friends, and family—meanwhile, nineteen-year-old Minou Joubert receives an anonymous letter at her father’s bookshop. Sealed with a distinctive family crest, it contains just five words: She knows that you live.

Love and Betrayal: Before Minou can decipher the mysterious message, she meets a young Huguenot convert, Piet Reydon. Piet has a dangerous task of his own, and he will need Minou’s help if he is to stay alive. Soon, they find themselves on opposing sides, as forces beyond their control threaten to tear them apart.

Honor and Treachery: As the religious divide deepens, Minou and Piet find themselves trapped in Toulouse, facing new dangers as tensions ignite across the city—and a feud that will burn across generations begins to blaze. . .

Praise for The Burning Chambers:

"Mosse is a master storyteller, balancing thrilling suspense with complex characters."— Madeline Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Circe

"This is historical fiction to devour. Nobody does it like Kate Mosse."— Anthony Horowitz, New York Times bestselling author of The Magpie Murders
