Vassa in the Night


Bizarre, beautiful, and richly imagined. Sarah Porter weaves a dark, thoroughly modern fairy tale crackling with wit and magical mayhem.
—Leigh Bardugo, New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows

Later this month, Tor Teen is releasing Vassa in the Night, a retelling of the Russian folktale "Vassilissa the Beautiful" set in a magic-infused Brooklyn. Click through to read an excerpt of this inventive tale which has received starred reviews from Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and School Library Journal. It left me enchanted, unsettled, and anxious to read it in its entirety! Discover it for yourself on the Tor/Forge blog.
