Raised by an old fortune-teller within the dark veil of the Bavarian Black Forest, Rune has learned two valuable lessons: only take from the forest that which you can use, and never, never look anyone in the eye in the village. For something terrible happened in the forest long ago… and now, the whispers of a long-dead mother with a vengeful secret have come haunting.
Forced to flee all she has ever known, Rune soon learns of a legacy she is bound to—one that is drenched in fear, witchcraft and murder—a birthright that stretches beyond the grave to the trees where Rune is no longer safe.
Jennifer Murgia has long loved the dark and speculative—and it’s from these dark places that she weaves fantastical stories, often hoping to find truth in them. Her Young Adult Fantasy & Contemporary novels include the upcoming Historical FOREST OF WHISPERS (9/9/14 – Spencer Hill Press), BETWEEN THESE LINES, ANGEL STAR, LEMNISCATE & THE BLISS. She is the co-founder and coordinator of YA FEST and currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, her two children, and a very spoiled cat. Jennifer is represented by Amanda Luedeke of MacGregor Literary Agency. firstname.lastname@example.org
