ISBN: 9780062224736
Published: Balzer + Bray - January 28th, 2014

A smart, compulsively readable fantasy romance with echoes of Beauty and the Beast, Greek mythology, and a downright creepy Bluebeard element?  Yes please!  This unconventional fairy tale will keep you guessing until the last page (no guarantees you won't be reading that page at 1:30 a.m. like I did)!  ~Sasha

Yes, this book is just as interesting as you might guess from the cover!  But in between the lurid bits, you'll learned a whole lot about the world's deadliest virus -- which traveling through millennia and around the globe -- and the terror, confusion, and brilliance it has inspired.  Science books just don't get more page-turning than this one!  ~Sasha

A vivid, haunting, unforgettable tale of childhood, innocence and its loss, love, and sacrifice.  This book is vintage Neil Gaiman, which means it's gorgeously written, creepy, compelling, unpredictable, and powerfully effective.  Whether it's your first Gaiman book or your tenth, do yourself a favor and read it!  ~Sasha
