Peternelle van Arsdale Image by Elena SiebertSuspenseful and vividly imagined, Peternelle van Arsdale's The Cold Is in Her Bones is a novel about the dark, reverberating power of pain, the yearning to be seen and understood, and the fragile optimism of love. Milla’s whole world is her family’s farm. She is never allowed to travel to the village and her only friend is her beloved older brother, Niklas. When a bright-eyed girl named Iris comes to stay, Milla hopes her loneliness might finally be coming to an end. But Iris has a secret she’s forbidden to share: The village is cursed by a demon who possesses girls at random, and the townspeople live in terror of who it will come for next. Peternelle van Arsdale is a book editor, essay and short story writer, and the author of The Beast Is an Animal. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she is at work on her third novel.

Alisa KwitneyCorpse & Crown is Alisa Kwitney's sequel to her debut Cadaver & Queen. As war between England and Germany brews on the horizon and a sinister medical conspiracy threatens to shatter the uneasy peace in Europe, Aggie and the Dodger must find a way to work together so they can protect their friends and expose the truth…even if it means risking their own survival. Alisa Kwitney is a former editor at DC Comics/Vertigo and is an Eisner-nominated author of graphic novels, romantic women's fiction and urban fantasy. She is one of the authors of A Flight of Angels, which made YALSA's Great Graphic Novels for Teens Top Ten list, and the YA graphic novel Token, named a highlight of the Minx imprint by Publishers Weekly. She lives in the Hudson Valley.
