'Juicy and dark... a standout dark academia thriller, with shades of Donna Tartt's modern classic The Secret History and Emerald Fennell's revenge fantasy film Promising Young Woman... Jessica is a firecracker of a protagonist... Thanks to Hennigan's strong voice and full embrace of the bumpy, twisty nature of retribution and revenge, The Favourite positively sings.'
[Hennigan] brilliantly weaves an enraging and all too familiar narrative that spotlights the systemic disregard of women and the dismissal of sexual violence
Hennigan's law degree is evident in her eloquent depictions of classroom discussions and her thoughtful meditations on justice. Readers will devour this satisfying tale of vengeance
[A]n engaging thriller that entertains while it explores toxic relationships and abuse of power in a prestigious academic setting
