The thrilling companion to Elissa Sussman’s masterful and original fairy tale, Stray, about which Booklist said, “Sussman delightfully mixes dystopian tension with retold fairy tales, and the result is something wholly original.” For readers of Heather Dixon’s Entwined and fans of Disney’s Into the Woods and Tangled.
After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home. Stolen from her parents at a young age and forced into service by the Wicked Queen, Elanor now wants nothing more than to see the queen removed from power. But Elanor has secrets—mistakes she’s spent years trying to forget—and the closer the rebels get to the throne, the harder it is for Elanor to keep her past hidden away. With fellow rebels on her side, including Princess Aislynn, Thackery, and the handsome and mysterious Matthias, it is time for Elanor to make a decision. Will she protect her secrets? Or risk everything to save the people she loves? Booklist said, “Fans will love having more action, more delicate touches of fairy tales, more romance. . . . A solid girl-positive addition to fantasy collections.” Includes a map.
