New York Times bestselling author Lili St. Crow thrilled legions of fans with her dark paranormal series Strange Angels. Now she has created a stirringly romantic, deliciously spooky update of Cinderella, the alluring second volume in her trilogy Tales of Beauty and Madness.
Ellie Sinder is a Charmer – the most powerful of her age that St. Juno's Academy has ever seen. But Ellie's stepmother, Laurissa, wields manipulation and abuse to force Ellie to work her spells ever more intensely, for Laurissa's profit.
Then a train from over the Wastelands arrives in New Haven, bearing on it golden boy Avery Fletcher, newly returned from prep school, wearing a sweater Ellie'd love to bury her face in and a smile as bright as his blond hair. Avery's arrival sets Laurissa off on a dark and dangerous scheme – and this time the soul up for grabs is Ellie's.
REVIEWS FOR NAMELESS, book one in the series
'St. Crow delivers a beautifully romantic yet creepy tale . . . The world-building is amazingly detailed, and she has built layers in both her characters and in the society they occupy. This story defies type as it's not merely a twisted fairy tale, nor is it simply another vampire love story . . . it is purely 'other' and new.' School Library Journal
'The ambitious worldbuilding and alternate history are fully thought out and well-realized, sure to enchant readers . . . A delicious treat for fairy-tale fans.' Kirkus
'A fantastical, rich and atmospheric retelling of a story at once so familiar and yet, through this different lens, is fresh, dark and contemporary.' The Hoopla
'Mesmerising and vividly real . . . Quite unlike anything I have ever encountered.' Goodreads
'Creative, dark and unique . . . Gripping . . . I am really eager to see where Lili St.Crow takes the story in the sequel.' Obsession with Books
