Waterstones Says

The bestselling author of The Book of Night returns to Elfhame - one of her most magnificently realised fictional worlds - with the first exhilarating instalment of a duology focusing on a changeling queen and a deadly quest.

A runaway queen. A reluctant prince. And a quest that may destroy them both.

Eight years have passed since the Battle of the Serpent. But in the icy north, Lady Nore of the Court of Teeth, has reclaimed the Ice Needle Citadel. There she is using an ancient relic to create monsters of stick and snow who will do her bidding and exact her revenge.

Suren, child queen of the Court of Teeth, and the one person with power over her mother, fled to the human world, where she lives feral in the woods. Lonely, and still haunted by the merciless torments she endured in the Court of Teeth, she bides her time by releasing mortals from foolish bargains. She believes herself forgotten until the storm hag Bogdana chases her through the night streets. Suren is saved by none other than Prince Oak, heir to Elfhame, to whom she was once promised in marriage and who she has resented for years.

Now seventeen, Oak is charming, beautiful and manipulative. He's on a mission that will lead him into the north, and he wants Suren's help. But if she agrees, it will mean guarding her heart against the boy she once knew and a prince she cannot trust, as well as confronting all the horrors she thought she had left behind.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Holly Black's new series brims with magic, beauty and danger ... a thrillingly twisty adventure. Black channels literature from A Midsummer Night's Dream to Christina Rossetti to create a gorgeous story of magic and betrayal. - Amanda Craig, The New Statesman

The two main characters are both strong and well-written, especially Suren, who makes a great female lead. - The Independent

this book was gripping and magical, full of mystery, intrigue and of course faeries! - The School Librarian

This is a deliciously rich novel ... There's a pleasurable interplay between the matter-of-fact human world and the dangerous but tempting possibilities of enchantment that the best of this genre is so good at revealing. - Open Graves Open Minds
