A powerful story about the monsters that are frequently imprisoned behind closed doors.
Olivia Prior grew up at Merilance School for Girls, and her only memory of her history is her mother’s journal, which appears to be unraveling into lunacy. Then Olivia receives a letter inviting her to return to Gallant. However, no one expects Olivia to appear. But Olivia isn’t going to leave the one place that seems like home, no matter how nasty her cousin Matthew is or whether she sees half-formed monsters prowling the corridors.

Olivia suspects Gallant is concealing something, and she is determined to find out what it is. Olivia finds herself in a Gallant—but not Gallant—place as she crosses a destroyed wall at at the right moment. The manor is falling apart, the ghouls are solid, and a mystery entity governs over everything. Olivia now understands what has divided generations of her family and where her father may have originated from.
“In this amazing book from the No. 1 New York Times, bestselling author V. E. Schwab, The Secret Garden and Crimson Peak collide. A mysterious and unique story about a young woman who is attracted by both the world and its darkness at that point in time.”
