Bringing together the stunning world building, romance and fairy tale enchantment you’d expect from the bestselling author of Heartless, this reworking of the Rumpelstiltskin fable curses a miller’s daughter with the gift of a golden tongue and plunges her into the dark centre of the Erlking’s dangerous court.

All magic comes at a price, but love was never part of the bargain...
The look he was giving her. Serilda had never been looked at like that before... The intensity. The heat. The raw astonishment. He was going to kiss her.
Cursed by the god of lies, a miller's daughter has developed a talent for storytelling - but are all of her tales as false as they appear? When one of Serilda's stories draws the attention of the devastating Erlking, she finds herself swept away into a world of enchantment, where ghouls prowl the earth, and ravens track her every move. The king locks Serilda in a castle dungeon and orders her to spin straw into gold, or be killed for lying. In despair, Serilda unwittingly summons a mysterious young man to her aid. And he agrees to help her, for a price. But love wasn't meant to be part of the bargain.
A compulsive read, and as bewitchingly good as you'd expect from a YA bestselling author. You will stay up all night reading this.
