There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of sisters Grimm on Earth.
You may well be one of them, though you might never know it.
This is the story of four sisters Grimm – daughters born to different mothers on the same day, each born out of bright-white wishing and black-edged desire.
They found each other at eight years-old, were separated at thirteen and now, at nearly eighteen, it is imperative that they find each other once again.
In thirty-three days they will meet their father in Everwhere. Only then will they discover who they truly are, and what they can truly do. Then they must fight to save their lives and the lives of the ones they love. Three will live, one will die.
You’ll have to read on to find out who and why . . .
'A darkly beguiling delight that’s perfect for fans of rich and imaginative fantasy books akin to Erin Morgenstern and Neil Gaiman.' CULTUREFLY
Van Praag (The Patron Saint of Lost Souls) braids mystery, magic, and a vicious hunt for power into a dark, delicious story of four estranged, supernatural sisters. As children, half-sisters Goldie, Liyana, Scarlet, and Bea meet and play together in Everwhere, an otherworldly plane accessed through their dreams. In Everwhere, they possess elemental magic inherited from their demonic father who delights in bearing half-mortal daughters and forcing them to fight his army of celestial soldiers at the age of 18 to prove their worth. At 13, the sisters are cut off from Everwhere, lose their powers and memories of each other, and turn their focus instead to school, work, and dating. But as their 18th birthdays approach, they feel a mysterious pull toward one another. As they uncover the dark secret of their births, they prepare to fight for their lives. Through entrancing prose, van Praag spins a tale of sisterhood and female empowerment, though her message is slightly undermined by the inexplicable ease with which the sisters are duped by the deceitful men in their lives, from their father to their manipulative boyfriends. Still, readers will be drawn to these well-developed characters and their lush world.
