      The Hazel Wood starts out strange and gets stranger, in the best way possible. Albert seamlessly combines contemporary realism with fantasy, blurring the edges in a way that highlights that place where stories and real life convene, where magic contains truth, and the world as it appears is false, where just about anything can happen, particularly in the pages of a good book. It's a captivating debut.” —The New York Times Book Review

      “An original and imaginative fairy tale: thrilling, fascinating, and poignant in equal measure.” —Entertainment Weekly, Best New Books

      “Insidiously beautiful, this is the opposite of escapist fantasy; it is a story about the imagination’s power to loose atrocity into the (mostly) law-abiding confines of the real.” —The Guardian

      “A darkly brilliant story of literary obsession, fairy-tale malignancy, and the measures a mother will take to spare her child.” —TheWall Street Journal, Best Children’s Book of the Year

      “An eerie, assured first novel. Albert occasionally entwines the haunting tales of the grandmother’s book through this mesmerizing narrative, creating a fantasy as lush and twisty as ivy.” —TheWashington Post

      “One of those rare young adult fantasy novels that holds a self-contained world in only a few hundred pages. If the novel’s heroine is a teenage girl, then her story will appeal to readers of all ages, with its intrigue and strange fairy tale magic and very grown up writing.” —Esquire

      “A can’t-miss, dark, and creepy new take on fairy tales that will have you glued to the page until the very end.” —BuzzFeed

      “This extremely creepy, wondrously original and beautifully written book conjures up a dark, bloody netherworld of fairytales and enchants and enthralls from the first sentence to the final page.” —The Buffalo News

      “A contemporary fantasy that dwells in an atmospheric, intertwining world of terrifying circumstances; a breathtaking dive into the magic and importance of story in one’s identity. ‘Story is the fabric of the Hinterland,’ one of the residents tells Alice. Another says, stories ‘create the energy that makes this world go. They keep our stars in place.’ If this is so, Albert’s exquisite wordsmithing and story weaving have kept the stars aloft for a new generation of readers.” —Shelf Awareness, starred review

      “Alice’s sharp-edged narration and Althea’s terrifying fairy tales, interspersed throughout, build a tantalizing tale of secret histories and magic that carries costs and consequences. There is no happily-ever-after resolution except this: Alice’s hard-won right to be in charge of her own story.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

      ”Highly literary, occasionally surreal, and grounded by Alice’s clipped, matter-of-fact voice,The Hazel Woodis a dark story that readers will have trouble leaving behind. The buzz for this debut is deafening, and the fact that the film adaption is already in the works doesn’t hurt.” —ALABooklist, starred review

      “Simultaneously wondrous and horrific, dreamlike and bloody, lyrical and creepy, exquisitely haunting and casually, brutally cruel. Not everybody lives, and certainly not ‘happily ever after’—but within all the grisly darkness, Alice's fierce integrity and hard-won self-knowledge shine unquenched.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

      “An empowering read that will be especially popular with fans of fairy-tale retellings.” —School Library Journal, starred review

      “Fans of the dark supernatural will gobble this up.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

      “Albert weaves a spellbinding, dark tale. The smoke-and-mirrors world of the Hazel Wood is deliciously creepy and its denizens are well-drawn.” —VOYA, starred review

      “It’s no exaggeration to say thatThe Hazel Wood is one of the most anticipated books of the year. Fortunately this is one of those cases where the hype is justified. Readers, especially those with a fondness for dark fairy tales, won’t want to miss this brilliant combination of realistic fiction and fantasy.” —BookPage

      The Hazel Woodis a rich tapestry of dangerous delights, and it effortlessly balances charm, malice, beauty, and fear. The diverse characters, gritty twists and turns, vivid imagery, and captivating premise make this the perfect choice for fans of Lev Grossman, Lewis Carroll, and Edgar Allan Poe. Chilling, atmospheric, as fresh as it is dark: the must-read of the season!” —Romantic Times,RT Seal of Excellence

      The Hazel Woodis thoroughly, creepily captivating, with surprises I never saw coming! Such a refreshing and beautifully written inversion of the classic fairy tale-inspired story.” —Kristin Cashore, author ofGraceling

      “This book will be your next literary obsession. Welcome to the Hazel Wood, where bad luck is a living thing, princesses are doomed, and every page contains a wondrously terrible adventure—it’s not safe inside these pages, but once you enter, you may never want to leave.The Hazel Woodis pure imagination candy.” —Stephanie Garber, author ofCaraval

      “Dark, spellbinding, and magical. One of the most original books I've read in years—The Hazel Wood is destined to be a classic.” —Kami Garcia, author ofBeautiful Creatures

      “Melissa Albert’sThe Hazel Wood is an elegant dark fairy tale, full of the power of story. It’s creepy and gorgeous, and I loved every word.” —Kat Howard, author ofAn Unkindness of Magicians

      “Elegant, ethereal, and beautifully brutal,The Hazel Wood is a fairy tale worth falling for. This is a dream of a book I cannot recommend highly enough. It's like falling into a nautilus shell: every time you think you've found the end, another chamber opens. Absolutely breathtaking.” —Seanan McGuire, author ofEvery Heart a Doorway

      “Absolutely mesmerizing, magical, and inventive. Hats off to Melissa Albert!” —Karen McManus, author ofOne of Us Is Lying

      “Dark, haunting, and absolutely mesmerizing:The Hazel Wood grabbed me with its mysterious, upside-down fairy tales, full of thorns and sharp twists. In no time at all, I became obsessed with this book, willing to follow it anywhere—even deep into the Hinterland.” —Jodi Meadows, coauthor ofMy Lady Jane

      The Hazel Wood kept me up all night. I had every light burning and the covers pulled tight around me as I fell completely into the dark and beautiful world within its pages. Terrifying, magical, and surprisingly funny, it’s one of the very best books I’ve read in years.” —Jennifer Niven, author ofAll the Bright Places

      “A winding, creepy, insidiously delicious novel. Utterly spectacular. I read it in one sitting!” —Melinda Salisbury, author ofThe Sin-Eater’s Daughter

      Description
      In this new historical fantasy, a young man must use the power granted by a goddess to infiltrate the realm of Faerie and save a kidnapped victim before the door is sealed once again.

      Orphaned as a toddler, Nicholas Withybeck knows no other home than Locksley Abbey outside Nottingham, England. He works in the Scriptorium embellishing illuminated manuscripts with hidden faces of the Wild Folk that he sees every time he ventures into the woods and fields.

      While exploring the forbidden crypts beneath the abbey, he discovers an altar older than the abbey’s foundations. Behind the bricks around the altar, he finds a silver cup embellished with the three figures of Elena, the Celtic goddess of crossroads, sorcery, and cemeteries. With the cup of Elena, Nick can see that the masked dancers on the May Day celebration are truly the creatures of the wood in disguise.

      Nick soon learns that the Green Man’s beloved has been kidnapped by Queen Mab of the Faeries. But the door to the Faery mound will only open when the moons of the two realms align and the time is fast approaching. To unlock the door and rescue the woman, he must release the goddess Elena. But meddling in the affairs of gods and faeries is not without its dangers. Will Nick dare to set the goddess free and face the consequences for the mortal world?

      Description

      From beloved author E.D. Baker, an adventurous tale about a princess who is more than what she seems --and a kingdom whose fate rests in her hands.

      Aislin is more than just a princess. Born to a fairy king and pedrasi queen, she's strong, smart, and brave, with magical gifts she's only beginning to discover. Aislin has spent her whole life keeping her family's gifts hidden from the non-magic folk who surround her kingdom, and is shocked to find out the humans knew about these enchantments all along. But when the fairies decide to move back onto human territory, it soon becomes clear that some will not be happy about this change.

      As she sets out to restore the balance, Aislin chooses a surprising group of young women to join her – girls she knows are brave and loyal, but who don't have the qualities of typical guards or princess confidantes. Things only get more complicated when an old foe appears, surely up to no good. The princess knows she has the power and ingenuity to stand up for herself and her kingdom, especially with her friends by her side – will that be enough to set things right?

      E. D. Baker is the author of many beloved books for young readers, includingThe Frog Princess, which was the inspiration for Disney'sThe Princess and the Frog. A classic and original fairy tale that celebrates goodness in all shapes and sizes, More than a Princess will resonate with readers who love magic, suspense, girl power, and adventure.

      “Beyond good and evil,Pivot juggles archetypes until you’re not sure which ball is airborne and which is still in the author’s hand. A story about cracking free of your intended role in life, as plot and depth travel at the same exceptional speed.” —Josh Malerman, author ofBird Box

      "Suspenseful and delightfully disturbing (...) This is a promising beginning to the Jack Harper trilogy." —Booklist

      “Impressive and arresting prose drives this vivid debut. (...) Barlow’s gorgeous writing will easily propel readers through the rest of the series.” —Publishers Weekly

      From the age of seven, Jack Harper is raised by the leader of a mystical cult, Cyrus Harper. Through Cyrus, Jack receives a full education in all usual subjects—economics, literature, mathematics, history—as well as one unique skill useful to a person in Cyrus's position: assassination. With the help of Roland James, a man incapable of dying, Cyrus hones Jack into the perfect weapon to use against all who oppose him.

      It is not long, however, before Jack discovers that Cyrus and Roland are not the only ones living in Cyrus’s mansion. There, too, exists a mysterious creature in the depths of the house with supposed immortal magic. According to Roland, this creature is responsible for all the miraculous things Jack has witnessed throughout her childhood, including Roland’s resurrection. The creature, potent and powerful, only weakens in the presence of Cyrus’s red velvet box—a dark, enchanted tool that grants Cyrus his invincibility and ensures his reign.

      Lonely and terrified by her life in the cult, under Cyrus's neverending watch, Jack desperately pursues the mysterious being. When they finally meet, her world is turned upside down, as he offers her more than she could have ever expected—the possibility of escape and her own secret, magical power.

      From the ingenious author of Jennifer Government and Lexicon: a brilliant work of science fiction that tells the intimate tale of four people facing their most desperate hour—alone, together, at the edge of the universe.

      The video changed everything. Before that, we could believe that we were safe. Special. Chosen. We thought the universe was a twinkling ocean of opportunity, waiting to be explored.

      Afterward, we knew better.

      Seven years after first contact, Providence Five launches. It is an enormous and deadly warship, built to protect humanity from its greatest ever threat. On board is a crew of just four—tasked with monitoring the ship and reporting the war’s progress to a mesmerized global audience by way of social media.

      But while pursuing the enemy across space, Gilly, Talia, Anders, and Jackson confront the unthinkable: their communications are cut, their ship decreasingly trustworthy and effective. To survive, they must win a fight that is suddenly and terrifyingly real.

      Description
      Welcome to Bohring-home to 453 people, 2,053 alligators, and one monster curse.

      Correction: home to 454 people, now that Kick Winter is living in the swamp Hollows with her Grandma Missouri, the town (fake) psychic. Bohring is anything but boring for Kick who has already blown a hole through the kitchen floor, befriended a chicken-eating gator, and discovered that the town's hundred-year curse is upon them.

      It's the Bohring curse and all the kids are about to become monsters-or so the legend goes. People are worried-except for Kick. She knows there's a scientific explanation for everything, especially curses and monsters. But Kick is the new kid in school and she's determined to make a name for herself . . . by pretending to be psychic.

      According to her calculations: one teeny-tiny life + (fake) psychic skills = popularity. But when kids start disappearing and glowing creatures start showing up, Kick's theory quickly evaporates in a puff of foul-smelling swamp gas. Can Kick use her (real) science smarts to prove the curse is a hoax? Or is it just-maybe-sort of-somehow possible the curse is here?

      Author Romily Bernard weaves a fast-paced middle-grade mystery filled with humor and scientific intrigue, set in a perfectly eerie Southern town.
