Book Synopsis



City of Spells, the follow-up to Alexandra Christo's gritty YA fantasy, Into the Crooked Place, finds the world on the brink of war and four unlikely allies facing sacrifices they had never imagined.

After the loss of Wesley and the horrifying reveal that Zekia is helping the Kingpin of her own free will, Tavia, Saxony, and Karam flee to Saxony's home to rebuild their rebellion. Meanwhile, trapped in the Kingpin's darkness, Wesley must fight against the deadly magic that invades his mind and find a way back to his friends before it's too late.

As the Kingpin's dark magic spreads and his army conquers Creije, these four unlikely friends have to decide just how far they'll go--and how much they are willing to sacrifice--to win.

Praise for Into the Crooked Place:

With its gangland details, creative magical caste system and surprisingly brutal characters, Into the Crooked Place is very much its own thing. And that thing will likely be a story you can't put down. --Culturess



Review Quotes




For Into the Crooked Place:

With its gangland details, creative magical caste system and surprisingly brutal characters, Into the Crooked Place is very much its own thing. And that thing will likely be a story you can't put down. --Culturess

Christo offers the reader creative and thoughtful backstories for each protagonist, along with fully realized worlds rife with magic...Everywhere are people of color and acknowledgment of LGBTQ characters--nice touches not always seen in fantasy. -Booklist

Christo has done an amazing amount of worldbuilding with this book, creating magic and lore I have never heard of before. The way her characters use magic, the mythology of each of her characters within their backstories, and the timing with which these backstories are revealed - pure magic, pun intended! --MuggleNet

If you're looking for a story of angsty teens with the world's biggest chips on their shoulders, look no further! ... It's a gangster heist story dealing with a lot of heavy themes, but I think everyone will find something to love in this story.... It's a wonderful read with awesome characters.--
