DEBUT: SHADOW AND BONE (Holt Children's/Macmillan, June 5th 2012)
Inspired by Tsarist Russia, SHADOW AND BONE brings to life a fantasy world of superstition and science, saints and samovars, in which a lonely refugee must leave behind her best friend- and first love- to save her country from the growing darkness of the Unsea. But first she must contend with the dangerous and decadent world of the kingdom’s magical elite and their powerful leader, a creature of dark charm and deadly ambition.
