Description

"Lush and deliciously sinister fairytales to be consumed as greedily as Turkish delight or any fairy fruit. I loved these." --Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble

"This inventive, enchanting collection reads like the fairy tales of old, hushed stories passed woman to woman, before the Grimms came and wiped away all the blood." --Laura Ruby, author of Bone Gap

Publishers Weekly Flying Start

"The Hazel Wood starts out strange and gets stranger, in the best way possible. Albert seamlessly combines contemporary realism with fantasy, blurring the edges in a way that highlights that place where stories and real life convene, where magic contains truth, and the world as it appears is false, where just about anything can happen, particularly in the pages of a good book. A captivating debut." --The New York Times Book Review, 2018 Notable Children's Book

"An original and imaginative fairy tale: thrilling, fascinating, and poignant in equal measure." --Entertainment Weekly, Best YA Book of the Year

"Insidiously beautiful, this is the opposite of escapist fantasy; it is a story about the imagination's power to loose atrocity into the (mostly) law-abiding confines of the real." --The Guardian, Best Children's Book of the Year

"A darkly brilliant story of literary obsession, fairy-tale malignancy, and the measures a mother will take to spare her child." --The Wall Street Journal, Best Children's Book of the Year

"A contemporary fantasy that dwells in an atmospheric, intertwining world of terrifying circumstances; a breathtaking dive into the magic and importance of story in one's identity. --Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Alice's sharp-edged narration and Althea's terrifying fairy tales, interspersed throughout, build a tantalizing tale of secret histories and magic that carries costs and consequences. There is no happily-ever-after resolution except this: Alice's hard-won right to be in charge of her own story." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Highly literary, occasionally surreal, and grounded by Alice's clipped, matter-of-fact voice, The Hazel Wood is a dark story that readers will have trouble leaving behind." --Booklist, starred review

"Simultaneously wondrous and horrific, dreamlike and bloody, lyrical and creepy, exquisitely haunting and casually, brutally cruel. Not everybody lives, and certainly not 'happily ever after'--but within all the grisly darkness, Alice's fierce integrity and hard-won self-knowledge shine unquenched." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Praise for the New York Times bestseller The Night Country

"This fairy tale noir adventure blends romance and mystery with plenty of action. A must-read for fans of portal fantasies, mysteries, and readers who prefer their magic with bloody sharp edges." --School Library Journal, starred review

"What Albert renders on the page is audacious: with resounding success, she keeps a firm grip on her characters and their stories, and her prose weaves a magic of its own, animating the ever-expanding fantastical premise through lyrical language, striking metaphor, and a mastery of tone that forces readers to feel the magic along with the underlying emotional stakes." --Booklist, starred review

"Albert's legion of fans will relish her return to the bloody, terrifying, seductive world of her debut and the inventive brilliance of her storytelling." --The Guardian
