BOOK OF NIGHT by Holly Black (TOP PICK)
ISBN 9781250812193 | on sale 5/3/22

“Charlie Hall is every ‘bad luck and worse trouble’ protagonist to ever magic her way into urban fantasy. She’s desperate, she’s profane, she’s fascinating, and she kicks ass and takes names with the best antiheroes of the genre.”–Library Journal, starred review

SIREN QUEEN by Nghi Vo
ISBN 9781250788832 | on sale 5/10/22

“Luli is a compelling character both on and off the screen in this story that takes the mythmaking of Hollywood and transforms it and her into something transcendent. Highly recommended.”–Library Journal, starred review

“In this stellar novel, Vo (THE CHOSEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL, 2021) turns Hollywood into a fairyland—the kind from the old stories, sharp and dangerous—and laces the sparkling silver romance of the movies with a dark, exploitative, hungry greed.”–Booklist, starred review

“Vo’s hypnotic prose blends metaphor with magic so seamlessly that reality itself becomes slippery. Her dazzling voice, evocative scene setting, and ambitious protagonist make this a knockout.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
