Set in a faerie kingdom rife with rebellion, the latest from Hawley (A Witch’s Guide to Fake Dating a Demon) features a cruel Fae court where a human servant, Kenna Heron, is set against grueling trials.

The first of a planned 10 volumes, this award-winning webcomic is coming to print as a novel in a specially designed package with sprayed edges, foil stamping, and more. The story, about a duke’s daughter who is married to a warrior, blends magic and politics—and a woman finding her power.

Bestselling Pearson moves from books for young readers to adult romantasy in this series starter. Bristol is pulled into the secret of her family: that there is a realm inhabited by magic.
