New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo is back after her stunning adult debut NINTH HOUSE with HELL BENT, another dazzling story of dark magic and murder set among the Ivy League elite.
Galaxy “Alex” Stern is determined to break Darlington out of hell—even if it costs her a future at Lethe and at Yale. But Alex is playing with forces far beyond her control, and when faculty members begin to die off, she knows these aren’t just accidents. Something deadly is at work in New Haven, and if Alex is going to survive, she’ll have to reckon with the monsters of her past and a darkness built into the university’s very walls.
HELL BENT (ISBN 9781250313102) goes on sale 1/10/23 from Flatiron Books.
