HVYAS Book of the Month

sorcery of thornsSorcery of Thorns
by Margaret Rogerson
Margaret K. McElderry Books

Releases June 4!

If Enchantment of Ravens marked the beginning of Margaret Rogerson’s fantasy career, Sorcery of Thorns proves that she’s here to stay—and that she should be on your must-buy list. In Sorcery of Thorns, Elisabeth is an apprentice in the Great Library, raised there as a child, born to tend its halls—until a Malifect, a book turned into a demon, murders the library’s Director and tries to destroy a nearby town. With Elisabeth blamed, she’s forced out of the library and into an unsteady—and swoonworthy—alliance with sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, hoping to unveil the truth before all the Great Libraries are destroyed. Sorcery of Thorns is everything a good fantasy should be: fun, romantic, adventurous, magical. I could happily live in the lush, fantastical worlds that Rogerson creates—more, please!
