Product Details


“Pirates and romance, dangerous magic and demon curses — this book has it all! THE WICKED BARGAIN is an immersive, vibrant adventure with swashbuckling, secrets and deals with a devil. Come for the epic fantasy adventure in the Caribbean, stay for the diverse cast, romantic tension and heart-warming found family!” Aiden Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of Cemetery Boys

“An entertaining, swashbuckling action story with a truly unique premise.” Paste Magazine

★ “A swashbuckling tale brimming with sorcery.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ “Novoa’s story celebrates identities often othered in our world by representing them as ordinary here. A lineup of Latinx characters, gender-fluid demonio, and slow-burning romance beautifully round off this fantasy.” —Booklist, starred review

“This romantic coming-of-age fantasy offers endearing, flawed heroes, an enticing villain, and high emotional stakes. An alluring high-seas adventure.—Kirkus Reviews

Sets the standard for inclusive, swashbuckling romance; it’s adventurous, fun, and highly recommended.” —School Library Journal

“Pirating adventures with a good amount of fun, magic, demonios, diablos, and gender-affirming experiences make this an easy and entertaining read.” —The Bulletin

A must-read for anyone still obsessed with Our Flag Means Death, Black Sails, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever; anyone in desperate need of more gender expansive BIPOC young adult fantasy; and anyone who wants a rollicking adventure full of magic and mayhem.” —Tor Online
