Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A compelling and inventive novel set in a world where science and magic are at odds, by Robin McKinley, the Newbery-winning author of The Hero and the Crown and The Blue Sword, as well as the classic fantasy titles Beauty, Chalice, Spindles End, Pegasus and Sunshine

 

Maggie knows somethings off about Val, her moms new husband. Val is from Oldworld, where they still use magic, and he wont have any tech in his office-shed behind the house. But—more importantly—what are the huge, horrible, jagged, jumpy shadows following him around? Magic is illegal in Newworld, which is all about science. The magic-carrying gene was disabled two generations ago, back when Maggies great-grandmother was a notable magician. But that was a long time ago.

 

Then Maggie meets Casimir, the most beautiful boy she has ever seen. Hes from Oldworld too—and hes heard of Maggies stepfather, and has a guess about Vals shadows. Maggie doesnt want to know . . . until earth-shattering events force her to depend on Val and his shadows. And perhaps on her own heritage.

 

In this dangerously unstable world, neither science nor magic has the necessary answers, but a truce between them is impossible. And although the two are supposed to be incompatible, Maggies discovering the world will need both to survive.

“A delightful read.”

Publishers Weekly

 

“Bound to appeal.”

Kirkus Reviews

 

Synopsis:

In her first novel for adults, the Newbery Medalist and bestselling author pens an exciting, beautifully written, erotic addition to the popular vampire genre. "A gripping, funny, page-turning, pretty much perfect work of magical literature."--Neil Gaiman.

Synopsis:

There hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and Sunshine just needed a spot where she could be alone with her thoughts.

Vampires never entered her mind. Until they found her.
