MEDIA REVIEWS
A lush and enchanting tale. Albert effortlessly draws on a wide range of literary references and builds a world where magic really does emerge from pages and where books are not just figurative but literal doors. Dreamy and disturbing in equal measure, it's the perfect antidote to a grey winter's day. -- Irish Times
Albert's legion of fans will relish her return to the bloody, terrifying, seductive world of her debut and the inventive brilliance of her storytelling. -- Guardian
Darker, bloodier and even stranger than THE HAZEL WOOD, THE NIGHT COUNTRY invites the wolf from the forest inside your home. A sinister jewel of a novel, like splitting a pomegranate and finding the inside filled with blood and rubies, every sentence of this book thrilled and chilled me to the bone. -- Melinda Salisbury, bestselling author of The Sin Eater's Daughter
A charming, mysterious fable that unpacks what it means to be a story and whether we are all simply the stories we hear and tell. -- Cassandra Clare, author of the Mortal Instruments series
What Albert renders on the page is audacious: with resounding success, she keeps a firm grip on her characters and their stories, and her prose weaves a magic of its own, animating the ever-expanding fantastical premise through lyrical language, striking metaphor, and a mastery of tone that forces readers to feel the magic along with the underlying emotional stakes. -- Booklist
Melissa Albert deftly weaves her magic once again between our world and the fairy tale realm of the Hinterland. The Night Country is a new modern classic filled with wondrous delights and daring forays into the dark. Not to be missed! -- Kim Liggett, author of The Grace Year
The Night Country is so deliciously creepy?the kind of puzzle box nightmare you have to see through to the end. One of the most unputdownable books I've read in a long time. -- Emily X. R. Pan, author of The Astonishing Color of After
Praise for The Hazel Wood
This eerie debut YA novel puts such a terrifying twist on classic bedtime stories, you'll not sleep a wink * Heat Magazine *
Simultaneously enticing and fearsome, much like the Hazel Wood of the title ... insidiously beautiful * Guardian *
A bewitching, elegant blend of contemporary thriller and dark fantasy * Observer *
MAGICAL, MESMERISING AND INVENTIVE
THE HAZEL WOOD KEPT ME UP ALL NIGHT . . . 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
A WINDING, CREEPY, INSIDIOUSLY DELICIOUS NOVEL. UTTERLY SPECTACULAR - I read it in one sitting
THIS BOOK WILL BE YOUR NEXT 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.
Darker, bloodier and even stranger than THE HAZEL WOOD, THE NIGHT COUNTRY invites the wolf from the forest inside your home. A sinister jewel of a novel, like splitting a pomegranate and finding the inside filled with blood and rubies, every sentence of this book thrilled and chilled me to the bone. -- Melinda Salisbury, bestselling author of The Sin Eater's Daughter
