A witch has come to the city of Bryre. She travels in a hut that has chicken feet, and is ravenous for children. And once she gets what she desires, she never lets it go.

But when the witch captures Hans, Greta’s little brother, Greta refuses to let her have him. The two strike up a bargain. Greta will retrieve something the witch desires in exchange for her brother’s freedom.

To get the prize Greta must travel to Belladoma—a city where she was once held captive—which brings back terrible memories. With the help of a new friend, Dalen, a magical half-boy and half-horse, Greta embarks on the journey and tries to overcome both foes and her own weaknesses.

For fans of Monstrous and new readers alike comes the story of an epic quest and a heroine who will stop at nothing to save the one she loves most.

Why I’m waiting: 
I fell in love with Monstrous! Seriously, I got it on Edelweiss and I was curious so I glanced at the first chapter… and I didn’t stop until I finished the book. I can’t wait to read Ravenous. It sounds like a retelling of Hansel and Gretel. And come on, those covers are so pretty! They fit so nice together!

  1. OH YES, Bieke! I remember your wonderful review and how much you enjoyed Monstrous. I just saw this gorgeous cover yesterday. I’m so excited as well – I adored the story and so want to read more of Connolly’s wonderful writing. And – this description has me excited:

    “A witch has come to the city of Bryre. She travels in a hut that has chicken feet, and is ravenous for children.”

    This sounds like Baba Yaga 🙂
