Waterstones Says

Weighty wishes and monstrous magic aplenty in this sumptuous gothic fantasy adventure, as a young girl stikes a dangerous bargain and makes unsettling discoveries in a crumbling manor.

Exclusive Edition with sprayed edges - A Standard Edition is also available

A sweeping gothic fairytale romance for fans of A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer and Gallant by V.E. Schwab.

Raised in a small village near the spirit-wood, Liska Radost knows that Magic is monstrous, and its practitioners, monsters.

After Liska unleashes her own powers with devastating consequences, she is caught by the demon warden of the wood - the Leszy - who offers her a bargain: one year of servitude in exchange for a wish.

Whisked away to his crumbling manor, Liska makes an unsettling discovery. She is not the first person to strike this bargain. And if she wants to survive the year and return home, she must unravel her host's spool of secrets and face the ghosts of his past. Those who enter the wood do not always return.

What a wonderful story filled to the brim with magic and folklore. It captures that place between superstition and faith, and weaves them together in a tapestry of magic. The plot is intricate and well thought out,... More

“Bittersweet and breathtaking”

Where The Dark Stands Still was a gorgeously spun tale full of darkness and love in a folklorish, fantastical Gothic romance story.
