MEDIA REVIEWS
"Alex Dolan's amazing literary thriller, The Empress of Tempera is edgy, smart, and full of twists that left me gasping. Incredibly vivid, totally engrossing-I highly recommend this book." -Jennifer Kincheloe, author of The Secret Life of Anna Blanc

"From the first page till the last, I was mesmerized by this novel. Much like watching a painter, each stroke is a joy to watch, the full image coming into focus at the moment you least expect it. With a fascinating cast, rich backstory, and page-turning action-I couldn't put this book down." -Alessandra Torre, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl in 6E

"Art can be seductive, powerful, transformative. It can also tempt, lie, destroy. Alex Dolan's gripping The Empress of Tempera reveals the dark side of beauty through a story of knife-sharp suspense full of wicked surprises." -Andrew Pyper, #1 internationally bestselling author

"intriguing...Dolan probes the value and meaning of art while spinning the troubled backstories of Paire and Qi."-Publishers Weekly
