Series: Untitled #1

It’s been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who’s still reeling from her father’s shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods–only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.

X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s evil attacker and others like him. Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As X and Zoe learn more about their different worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them.

Dorothy Must Die author Danielle Paige leaves Oz behind in this fairy tale retelling that imposes the story of Snow White onto a contemporary New York setting. Though she has spent most of her life in a mental institution, 17-year-old Snow is sure she’s not crazy—and when she finally escapes with the help of an intriguing new staffer, she learns she was right. Snow finds herself in the fantasy world of Algid, where her royal destiny and constant dangers twist together into a fast-paced telling of her journey from inmate to heroine…or villain.
