The New York Times bestselling sequel to Melissa Albert’s beloved The Hazel Wood!
In The Night Country, Alice Proserpine dives back into a menacing, mesmerizing world of dark fairy tales and hidden doors of The Hazel Wood. Follow her and Ellery Finch as they learn The Hazel Wood was just the beginning, and that worlds die not with a whimper, but a bang.
With Finch’s help, Alice escaped the Hinterland and her reclusive grandmother’s dark legacy. Now she and the rest of the dregs of the fairy tale world have washed up in New York City, where Alice is trying to make a new, unmagical life. But something is stalking the Hinterland’s survivors—and she suspects their deaths may have a darker purpose. Meanwhile, in the winking out world of the Hinterland, Finch seeks his own adventure, and—if he can find it—a way back home...
Don’t miss Tales from the Hinterland, coming January 12, 2021!
I love this
The Night Country is such a raw, lyrical book that makes you get to really dwell deep in the aftermath of The Hazel Wood. Featuring more twisted tales from Althea’s stories. The newest character, Sophia, makes you really appreciate Alice as a character. Alice goes through so much as well as Finch. If I haven’t sold you to this amazing book, read this quote. “I wasn’t going to be a victim anymore. A monster either. I was going to find the creature who’d turned me into both, in the subway car in the dark.”
