The thrilling companion to Elissa Sussman’s masterful and original fairy tale, Stray, about which Booklist said, “Sussman delightfully mixed dystopian tension with retold fairy tales, and the result is something wholly original.” Burn will appeal to readers of Heather Dixon’s Entwined and to anyone who grew up watching Disney princess movies.
After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home. Stolen from her parents at a young age and forced into service by the Wicked Queen, Elanor now wants nothing more than to see the queen removed from power. But Elanor has secrets, mistakes she’s spent years trying to forget, and the closer the rebels get to the throne, the harder it is for Elanor to keep her past hidden away. With fellow rebels on her side — including Princess Aislynn, Thackery, and the handsome and mysterious Matthias — it is time for Elanor to make a decision. Will she protect her secrets? Or risk everything to save the people she loves? Booklist says, “Fans will love having more action, more delicate touches of fairy tales, more romance... A solid girl-positive (and sex-positive) addition to fantasy collections.”
