A dark and compelling fantasy about sisterhood, impossible tasks and the price of power, from award-winning author T. Kingfisher

After years of seeing her sisters suffer at the hands of an abusive prince, Marra―the shy, convent-raised, third-born daughter―has finally realized that no one is coming to their rescue. No one, except for Marra herself.

Seeking help from a powerful gravewitch, Marra is offered the tools to kill a prince―if she can complete three impossible tasks. But, as is the way in tales of princes, witches, and daughters, the impossible is only the beginning.

On her quest, Marra is joined by the gravewitch, a reluctant fairy godmother, a strapping former knight, and a chicken possessed by a demon. Together, the five of them intend to be the hand that closes around the throat of the prince and frees Marra’s family and their kingdom from its tyrannous ruler at last.

Review

PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR

The Hollow Places is gripping, bold, sharply witty, inventive and most of all – terrifying! It’s every bit as unmissable as The Twisted Ones. T. Kingfisher most definitely has a new fan!
– Alison Littlewood

The Hollow Places is replete with T. Kingfisher’s trademark comedy-into-horror moments. Uncle Earl’s Wonder Museum seems like the perfect place for Carrot to recover from her divorce, but maybe not so much. Within lie the ways between to unimagined spaces – the hollow places – where They wait.
– Angela Slatter, author of the World Fantasy Award-winning The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings

Just like in The Twisted Ones [Kingfisher] riffs on established masters of the genre but uses them to build an original and compelling hinterland world populated by nightmarish figures that haunt you long after you’ve finished
– James Brogden

Reads so fast and so effortless that you don’t realize how in thrall you are to it. It’s the sensation of being a little kid who stayed out too long past dinner and sure, you were having fun, but now it’s a moonless night and the forest is dark and you are hopelessly lost. This is righteous, folkloric horror, and the devil is waiting in between these pages.
– Chuck Wendig, NYT bestselling author of Blackbirds and Wanderers

Innovative, unexpected, and absolutely chilling, T. Kingfisher isn’t just breaking into the horror scene, she’s breaking it down.  With a hammer.
– Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Mira Grant

A deliciously horrifying read. I adored it. In turns deeply human and uncanny, The Twisted Ones reads like the world’s most terrifying episode of Hoarders. Don’t sleep on it. In fact, be prepared to never sleep again.
– Nebula Award-winning author Alyssa Wong

The Twisted Ones is a weird, shimmering story told with sharpness and grace – somehow both wild fairy tale and quiet, personal horror in equal measure. It’s a strange and lovely balance, expertly crafted for daytime laughter or nighttime trembles.
– Cherie Priest, author of The Family Plot and Maplecroft.

Refreshingly charming…it is the mark of a great author to bring characters to life so easily
– SFF Book Reviews on Bryony and Roses

There is nothing I love more than to be taken by surprise by a story that is so unexpectedly great
– Kirkus Reviews on The Seventh Bride

Darkly funny…a fast and entertaining novel
– Locus Magazine on Clockwork Boys

Vernon’s worldbuilding is magnificently weird
– Tor.com on Swordheart
