Advance Praise

"A smart, nuanced exploration of victims and villains, inspiration and theft, and the intersection of these things, in every artist. Pay attention to Katie Lattari. She's the real deal."—Sarah Langan, author of Good Neighbors


"I felt like I was being physically pulled into a dark forest while reading this psychological cat-and-mouse game, always aware that more danger lay ahead. With a constant sense of foreboding and lush imagery, Dark Things I Adore is a haunting,  mesmerizing tour de force, everything about it a brutal sort of beauty." - Zoje Stage, USA Today and internationally bestselling author of Baby Teeth and Getaway

"Gorgeous and absorbing, DARK THINGS I ADORE is a stunningly executed tale of art, trauma and revenge. At once propulsive in plot and lyrical in style, it's the kind of novel you'll want to savor every sentence of—dark and deeply satisfying." –Katie Lowe, author of The Furies and Possession

“Pulsing with seductive menace, DARK THINGS I ADORE is a beautiful package, set to explode.” -Eliza Jane Brazier, author of If I Disappear
