A Magic Steeped in Poison has one of the most beautiful covers I’ve seen in a while — across all genres and publishers. I’m absolutely enchanted by the art style and the attention to detail. I love the bold, rich use of colors and the stylistic details, from the cup of tea to the fish and flowers surrounding the girl on the cover. Lin’s prose is similarly enchanting. The worldbuilding is fascinating and I felt pulled into Ning’s story and the immediacy of the challenges she faces. Can’t wait to read more!
