Praise for The Thirteenth Child:

“A haunting, deeply romantic tale of life and death, and one girl who walks the fragile cord between them. Steeped in folklore and rich in atmosphere, I was enchanted from the very first page.”—Ava Reid, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Study in Drowning

“Sumptuous, gothic, ornate—yet bracingly fresh and alive. Erin Craig writes fairy tales that feel both magical and real, marrying epic arcs with intimate, human stories, each making the other more potent and thrilling.”—Melissa Albert, NYT bestselling author of The Hazel Wood

“Craig delivers yet another enrapturing masterpiece. I loved every minute of it!”—Lauren Blackwood, NYT bestselling author of Within These Wicked Walls

Utterly enchanting. There are few greater pleasures than setting off with Craig’s clever heroines through glittering Gothic realms.”—Kirsten Miller, author of The Change, a Good Morning America Book Club pick

“At once a deliciously dark fairy tale full of complicated families, dysfunctional deities, and impossible bargains, and a candle-lit journey of love, sacrifice, and becoming, The Thirteenth Child is a brooding, sensuous delight, told with the brambly magic of a woodland spell and the gilded grace of a royal masquerade.”—Kiyash Monsef, New York Times bestselling author of Once There Was

“I think I speak for everyone when I say we want Erin A. Craig to tell us bedtime stories every night. Until that happens, at least we can lose ourselves in the darkly wondrous fairytale romance of Hazel and her deathly godfather.”—Kiersten White, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the And I Darken series

Sinister and beautiful, this dark fairytale swept me away to a decadent world of capricious gods and gold-limned danger.”—Lyndall Clipstone, author of Lakesedge

“A stellar, eerily enchanting journey that feels like it was written with rosewater on black pages, The Thirteenth Child features dark, adoring gods, hungry spirits, palace intrigue, and much more.”—Johnny Compton, author of Spite House

“All hail the queen of gothic fantasy! The Thirteenth Child is Erin Craig at her very best, bestowing readers with a compelling heroine, ruthless gods, and forbidden romance. Beating fiercely within its gilded cage, the dark heart of this brilliant and sinister reimagining will haunt you long after you close its pages.”—Mara Rutherford, author of A Multitude of Dreams

“Death and life interweave in this lush, glittering fairytale, showing us that they maybe aren’t so opposed. Erin Craig’s The Thirteenth Child is a masterful story that suspends time—and makes us think about how valuable it is.”—Autumn Krause, author of Before the Devil Knows You’re Here
