<b>Parents’ Choice Silver Honors Winner</b><BR> <BR>A skilled painter must stand up to the ancient power of the faerie courts—even as she falls in love with a faerie prince—in this gorgeous debut novel.<BR><BR>Isobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes—a weakness that could cost him his life.<BR> <BR>Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love—and that love violates the fair folks’ ruthless laws. Now both of their lives are forfeit, unless Isobel can use her skill as an artist to fight the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.

<b>Critics are raving about Laurie Forests incredible debut, The Black Witch:</b><Br>"Elloren learns to question authority and Gardnerian history, while developing real empathy for different races and species. Forest uses a richly imagined magical world to offer an uncompromising condemnation of prejudice and injustice."<i> —Booklist, starred review</i></br></br><Br>"Exquisite character work, an elaborate mythology, and a spectacularly rendered universe make this a noteworthy debut, which argues passionately against fascism and xenophobia." <i>—Publishers Weekly, starred review</i></br></br><Br>"This briskly paced, tightly plotted novel enacts the transformative power of education, creating engaging characters set in a rich alternative universe with a complicated history that can help us better understand our own."<i> —Kirkus Reviews, starred review</i><Br><Br><Br><b>A new Black Witch will rise…her powers vast beyond imagining.</b><Br><Br><Br>Elloren Gardner is the granddaughter of the last prophesied Black Witch, Carnissa Gardner, who drove back the enemy forces and saved the Gardnerian people during the Realm War. But while she is the absolute spitting image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above all else.<Br><Br><Br>When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren joins her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University to embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother's legacy. But she soon realizes that the university, which admits all manner of people—including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of all Gardnerians—is a treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.<Br><Br><Br>As evil looms on the horizon and the pressure to live up to her heritage builds, everything Elloren thought she knew will be challenged and torn away. Her best hope of survival may be among the most unlikely band of misfits…if only she can find the courage to trust those she's been taught to hate and fear.

<b>The <i>Titanic</i> meets the delicious horror of Ransom Riggs and the sass of <i>Mean Girls</i> in this follow-up to the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>How to Hang a Witch,</i> in which a contemporary teen finds herself a passenger on the famous “ship of dreams”—a story made all the more fascinating because the author’s own relatives survived the doomed voyage.</b><br /> <b> </b><br /> Samantha Mather knew her family’s connection to the infamous Salem Witch Trials might pose obstacles to an active social life. But having survived one curse, she never thought she’d find herself at the center of a new one. <br />  <br /> This time, Sam is having recurring dreams about the <i>Titanic . . . </i>where she’s been walking the deck with first-class passengers, like her aunt and uncle. Meanwhile, in Sam’s waking life, strange missives from the <i>Titanic</i> have been finding their way to her, along with haunting visions of people who went down with the ship. <br />  <br /> Ultimately, Sam and the Descendants, along with some help from heartthrob Elijah, must unravel who is behind the spell that is drawing her ever further into the dream ship . . . and closer to sharing the same grim fate as its ghostly passengers.<br />  <br />  <br /> Praise for <i>How to Hang a Witch:</i><br />  <br /> “It’s like <i>Mean Girls</i> meets history class in the best possible way.” —<b><i>Seventeen </i>Magazine</b><br />  <br /> “Mather shines a light on the lessons the Salem Witch Trials can teach us about modern-day bullying—and what we can do about it.” —<b>Bustle.com</b><br />  <br /> “Strikes a careful balance of creepy, fun, and thoughtful.” —<b>NPR</b><br />  <br /> “I am utterly addicted to Adriana Mather’s electric debut.
