I just snagged this off Edelweiss the other day, but I'm still waiting on it because I want YOU to know about it. I mean, look at the cover! And the synopsis! I just want it! (And I'm totally finding a way to put this up earlier on my TBR.)

The city of Bryre suffers under the magic of an evil wizard. Because of his curse, girls sicken and disappear without a trace, and Bryre’s inhabitants live in fear. No one is allowed outside after dark.

Yet night is the only time that Kymera can enter this dangerous city, for she must not be seen by humans. Her father says they would not understand her wings, the bolts in her neck, or her spiky tail—they would kill her. They would not understand that she was created for a purpose: to rescue the girls of Bryre.

Despite her caution, a boy named Ren sees Kym and begins to leave a perfect red rose for her every evening. As they become friends, Kym learns that Ren knows about the missing girls, the wizard, and the evil magic that haunts Bryre. 

And what he knows will change Kym’s life. 

Reminiscent of Frankenstein and the tales of the Brothers Grimm, this debut novel by MarcyKate Connolly stands out as a compelling, original story that has the feel of a classic.

Are you waiting on something monstrous this week?


  1. This looks amazing! Why haven't I heard of this before? Why is the release date so far off?

  2. I'm not a huge fan of middle grade books, but that synopsis sounds so intriguing and mysterious and dark! I might just have to add this one to the TBR. And I love that cover! :)

  3. Awesome pick. I like the illustration and synopsis. Seems interesting.

    Happy Wednesday!
