Product Details


“As haunting, lyrical, and enchanting as the fairy tales Krysta is so taken with, Granville’s bittersweet first novel will keep readers hooked, guessing and wondering how Lilie and Krysta’s stories relate, right up to the end.”—Library Journal (starred)

“In Gretel and the Dark, Eliza Granville masterfully entwines two richly layered and compelling stories of two seemingly different worlds. Filled with remarkable historical detail and stunning prose, both Krysta’s and Lilie’s stories captivated me, and Granville kept me quickly turning the pages to discover the connection between these two girls. By turns beautiful and frightening, magical and dark, this is a novel that will stay with me for a long time to come.”
—Jillian Cantor, author of Margot

“Dark and intriguing . . .  a highly clever, original book.”
The Daily Mail (UK)

“A powerful story, sensitively told…a terrifying tale about the stories we hear and the stories we tell ourselves to understand our experiences…it’s impossible not to find yourself racing through the pages, desperate to discover the connections…heartbreaking and heart-racing.”—The Times (UK)

“Atmospheric and beautifully written…a subtle and thoughtful novel. It seems soon to call it, but Gretel and the Dark will be one of the best books of 2014.”
