“Fantasy readers, particularly those who love ghosts, will hungrily devour this novel.“–Publishers Weekly, starred review

Demand alone would necessitate purchasing multiple copies in all formats, but this is genuinely terrific. The worldbuilding is rock solid, the plot is propulsive, and readers will be clamoring for a sequel as soon as they read the last page.”–Library Journal, starred review

“With an aura of both enchantment and authenticity, Bardugo’s compulsively readable novel leaves a portal ajar for equally dazzling sequels.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“This atmospheric contemporary novel steeped in the spirit of a mystical New Haven is part mystery, part story of a young woman finding purpose in a dark world, and is the first in a potential series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Adults are just as enamored of Bardugo’s YA novels as teens are, and many have been anxiously and curiously awaiting this one.”–Booklist, starred review

Three Stars for WHISPER NETWORK!

Chandler Baker’s #MeToo whodunit WHISPER NETWORK has received THREE starred reviews!

“Attorney Baker’s debut is a thriller, a murder mystery, and an anthem for any woman who has ever hit a glass ceiling, been the brunt of sexual innuendo, or felt harassed in the workplace. Smart, articulate, and witty, it will resonate with a huge audience. Highly recommended.“–Library Journal, starred review

“In the midst of a police investigation and meetings involving suits and countersuits, Baker works in succinct statements about the quandaries of modern women… These truths serve to bolster the plot, not distract from it, and the result is a compulsively readable mystery with a strong message. Don’t miss it.“–Booklist, starred review

“It’s a breezy page-turner of a book, which is the brilliance of it: Under the froth is an unmistakable layer of justified rage. Over-the-top in all the right ways.“–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Exclusive Cover Reveal! Leigh Bardugo’s Adult Debut NINTH HOUSE

Bestselling YA author Leigh Bardugo makes her first foray into adult publishing with NINTH HOUSE, a mesmerizing tale of power, privilege, and dark magic set among the Ivy League elite, and now we can officially share the stunning cover and an exclusive excerpt!

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug-dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. In fact, by age twenty, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most prestigious universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. Their eight windowless “tombs” are the well-known haunts of the rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street’s biggest players. But their occult activities are more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive. They tamper with forbidden magic. They raise the dead. And, sometimes, they prey on the living.

NINTH HOUSE is the long-awaited adult debut by the beloved author of SHADOW AND BONE and SIX OF CROWS. Leigh Bardugo will take her place alongside Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness as one of the finest practitioners of literary fantasy writing today.
