Description

Reminiscent of Frankenstein and tales by the Brothers Grimm, this fantasy novel, hailed by award-winning author Anne Ursu as -a marvel of storytelling alchemy- stands out as a compelling, original story that has the feel of a classic.

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

Night is when Kymera comes to the city, with a cloak disguising her wings, the bolts in her neck, and her spiky tail. Her mission is to rescue the girls of Bryre. Despite Kym's caution to go secretively, a boy named Ren sees and befriends her...but what he knows will change her world forever.
