The stunning finale of the epic fantasy duology from New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis. Alchemy student turned necromancer Nedra Brysstain has made a life-changing decision to embrace the darkness--but can the boy who loves her bring her back to the light before she pays the ultimate price?
Lunar Island is trying to heal. The necromantic plague that ravaged the land has been eradicated, and Emperor Auguste, the young and charming leader of the Allyrian Empire, has a plan: rid the island of necromancy once and for all. Though Greggori "Grey" Astor wants what's best for his people, he knows that allying himself with Auguste threatens the one person he loves most: necromancer Nedra Brysstain. Feeling like he already failed to save Nedra once, Grey becomes determined to help the Emperor rebuild Lunar Island while still keeping Nedra safe from harm.
Back at the quarantine hospital, Nedra's army of revenants are growing increasingly inhuman by the day. Wracked with guilt for imprisoning their souls, Nedra vows to discover a way to free the dead while still keeping her sister by her side.
But still reeling from the trauma of the plague, the people of Lunar Island are looking for someone to blame, and Grey can only protect Nedra for so long. And when Nedra and Grey are thrust into a battle with an even more terrifying adversary, Nedra will be pushed to the darkest depths of her necromantic powers. But can Grey let her go that far?
About the Author
Beth Revis grew up in the Appalachian Mountains with a cemetery in her backyard, which is probably why she prefers her stories to be dark and full of twists. She's the New York Times bestselling author of the Across the Universe trilogy, which has been translated into more than 20 languages. Beth lives in a house full of boys—her husband, son, and two massive dogs—and she forces them all to watch reruns of Firefly and Doctor Who. Visit her at bethrevis.com.
Revis' thrilling conclusion takes its time building, touching upon nuanced issues like economic disparity and wealth inequality, deliberately building into a white-hot conflagration that smolders with intensity. A slow burn that does not disappoint. —Kirkus
Praise for Give the Dark My Love “Dark, dangerous, and utterly captivating. Beth Revis has outdone herself." —C.J. Redwine, New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen “A twisty thriller—this dark fantasy grabs you by the throat and drags you all the way to the end.” —Cinda Williams Chima, New York Times bestselling author of the Shattered Realms series "A darkly twisted look at the way grief makes monsters of us all." —New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ryan “Transfixing....[A] complex and atmospheric mix of fantasy, family secrets, and political intrigue.” —Kirkus
“This twisty, macabre fantasy...employs keen character work, thoughtful worldbuilding, and an intelligent plot." —Publishers Weekly
"Dark, twisty, weird, and FANTASTIC." —SyFy Wire
“Give the Dark My Love is Revis’s best work to date. It is heartbreaking and unflinching in its portrayal of grief, hopelessness and the heroic attempt to stop fate even when you know you can’t.” —The Asheville Citizen-Times
A beautiful retelling of the legend of Snow and Rose, this gentle fairy tales brims with all the requisite traditions: dwarfs, missing person, enchanted forest and strange creatures. As in her highly imaginative picture books, first time middle grade novelist Emily Winfield Martin paints the sisters, Snow and Rose, as not exact opposites, but more like complimentary gears, who thrive on different aspects of the same thing. Recommended as a read-aloud, this beautifully illustrated tale will delight the young and young-at-heart! - Maureen
