Sometimes it’s not the kid you expect who falls through to magicland, sometimes it’s . . . Elliott. He’s grumpy, nerdy, and appalled by both the dearth of technology and the levels of fitness involved in swinging swords around. He’s a little enchanted by the elves and mermaids. Despite his aversion to war, work, and most people (human or otherwise) he finds that two unlikely ideas, friendship and world peace, may actually be possible.
“A subversive, sneaky, glorious tale of magic, longing, and growing into your wings.”
— Holly Black, author of The Darkest Part of the Forest
Praise for Sarah Rees Brennan’s books:
“Breathtaking—a compulsive, rocketing read.”
—Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author
“Writing with fine control and wit, Sarah Rees Brennan pits an underworld society against privileged overlords. The young golden-haired heroine sparring with her rich boyfriend and his dark-souled shadow-twin lends wry and sexy human interest to the depiction of political struggle. I suspect that word of this magical thriller will pass through the populace with the energy of wind, of fire.”
—Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Egg and Spoon
“From the pitch-perfect opening paragraph, to the heartbreaking final pages… delicious.” —Kirkus (starred review)
“A sparkling fantasy that will make you laugh and break your heart.”
—Cassandra Clare, New York Times bestselling author
“A darkly funny, deliciously thrilling Gothic.”
—Kelley Armstrong, New York Times bestselling author
“Readers will laugh, shiver, and maybe even swoon over this modern Gothic novel.”
—Melissa Marr, New York Times bestselling author
“A laugh-out-loud delight.” —Publishers Weekly
“Brennan takes the genres of young adult, fantasy, and romance, and through her own writerly, alchemical process converts them into something new and strange and lovely. Read the first few pages of Tell the Wind and Fire and see if you don’t agree.”—Kelly Link, author of Pretty Monsters
