The Dark Queen's Apothecary (a novella) by Cassandra L. Thompson

Imprint: Black Rose

Andrei cannot believe his good fortune when he is summoned by the beautiful yet formidable Queen Viorica to serve as her personal apothecary. But he soon learns that things at her dark castle are not what they seem. Haunted by his growing obsession for her, Andrei falls helplessly into her thrall and soon discovers her dark secret. Unafraid, he destroys the competition around him and takes his rightful place by her side. Lost to passion and bloodlust, the two are caught unaware when the queen’s adversaries make their move. But what no one realized was that Queen Viorica created a monstrous king out of the once timid Andrei, bearing a love strong enough to make kingdoms burn.

Author Cassandra L. Thompson

Gothic horror writer Cassandra L. Thompson has been creating stories since she got her grubby little hands around a pen. When she is not busy managing a house full of feral children (human and canine) with her beloved husband, you can find her wandering around cemeteries, taking pictures of abandoned things, or in the library doing research on her latest obsession. She has a B.A. in History and a MLIS, but she ignores her degrees to write and run Quill & Crow Publishing House, both of which require copious amounts of coffee and Crows.

Dark Romance at its best

I'm a fan of Cassandra's writing. The Dark Queen's Apothecary is part horror, part mythology with a spicy romance and a strong female lead. It's an excellent addition to The Ancient Ones trilogy, but can also be read alone. This romance is hot. The story is dark. It's an excellent read.

Great Service and Products

I am super excited about all of the items I received. They came packed nicely. Everything was in great condition and looked exactly as advertised. Very happy with my purchases.


If you have not gotten this book get it and read it. It's extremely hard for me to read a book and it keeps my attention because I am an ADHD-ridden squirrel, but this one I could not put it down and still can not put it down. Highly recommend all of the books I've gotten from this shop and this shop.

I already loved The Ancient Ones Trilogy, but this peripheral view took it to a whole new level.

With power, lust, betrayal, love, and awakening, there's not a page that will deprive you of enjoyment no matter what you crave.
From cruel slaughter to highly sexual depravity, this (too short) work is masterfully written.
