We’re excited to present the cover and an exclusive story from Melissa Albert’s Tales from the Hinterland, a follow-up to The Hazel Wood series, featuring all of the long-awaited dark and twisted backstories to all of its fairy-tale characters. Tales From the Hinterland releases January 12, 2021 from Flatiron books.
Magic without consequences is like a fairy offering without milk: unlikely to get you killed, but kinda incomplete. The best books about magic are the kind that extract something from their characters on their way through the magical wringer, be it health or sanity or time. Think Thomas the Rhymer losing seven years beneath a fairy hill, or Quentin Coldwater coming out of a magical coma with white hair, a wooden shoulder, and a dead girlfriend.
Here are five more tales in which magic has a price.
