"All Eliza Serling wants in this world is to find out why her mother left and to keep her little sister Winnie safe. But there is more than just ocean cliffs and skinned knees threatening Winnie—Cape Fen is home to Baron Dire, a magician who makes slippery bargains with the townspeople and sends his massive Wolf after them to collect payment. When the Wolf tries to attack Winnie, Eliza is determined to find out why—her sister hasn't made a deal with the Baron, so who has? And what other secrets is her town hiding? Dreamy and atmospheric, The Wolf of Cape Fen is most of all a fairy tale about sisters and the extraordinary, unbreakable bond between them." - Lily (Staff)— From Buy & Pre-order Books
Beyond the Bright Sea meets Echo in this story of a young girl who must break a magical bargain before an enchanted wolf steals her sister away.
First Frost has touched Cape Fen, and that means Baron Dire has returned. For as long as anyone can remember, Baron Dire has haunted the town come winter, striking magical bargains and demanding unjust payment in return. The Serling sisters know better than to bargain, lest they find themselves hunted by the Baron's companion, the Wolf.
And then the Wolf attacks Eliza's sister Winnie. They manage to escape, but they know the Wolf will be back. Because Winnie would never bargain, so that must mean that someone has struck a deal with Winnie as the price.
Eliza refuses to lose her sister and embarks on a journey to save her. If Eliza can learn the truth, she might be able to protect her sister, but the truth behind the bargain could put her own life in danger.
"Brandt's striking debut is eerie and intriguing, set in a deftly built world that feels both cozily familiar and unsettlingly odd. A stunning seaside fairy tale that will absorb readers until the very end." --Booklist
"Unfolding gradually as Eliza relentlessly pieces the past together, this intriguing mystery culminates in a startling, literally transforming climax." --Kirkus Reviews
