Nineteen-year-old Lauren Reed has always felt peculiar. She has no memory of her past after her parents’ mysterious deaths, and her unusual emerald eyes and severe migraines reinforce her sense of being an outsider. With her sophomore year of Northwestern about to begin, Lauren can’t wait to escape her adoptive parents’ overprotectiveness and move in with her best friend, Raegan, for a fresh start.

Unfortunately, her plan is thwarted when a strange note in her parents’ study leads to a frightful vision of a woman running for her life. Lauren’s other senses also start to heighten—especially after she meets the very handsome and charming Quinn Maxwell. As her visions and connection to Quinn strengthen, Lauren is stalked by an irate man with a cryptic warning: Raefield is coming for her, and she better not resist, or everyone will suffer.

Frightened and confused, Lauren digs into her past, looking for answers. She is shocked to discover her biological parents were witches. Their lifesaving magic triggered her evolving abilities, which is why she’s being hunted by Raefield, a power-hungry madman. Although her parents’ coven swears to protect her, Lauren must willingly embrace her new powers or risk a dark fate.

   Avery never dreamed she’d have to leave her dad and friends behind to spend the summer with a mother she barely knows. 

 

  Just when she thinks it can’t get any worse, the discovery she belongs to a coven of teenaged witches changes everything. Avery soon learns most of her life was built on a lie. 


   Though she doesn’t want to believe what the coven reveals, she can’t deny the power growing inside her. With little choice but to embrace her new life, Avery finds herself sinking into a world of magic and mystery. The deeper she goes, the more her feelings develop for Reid, another member of the coven.


   Avery’s barely awakened to her powers before Regan arrives with evil intentions.


   When he forces Avery and her friends into his nightmare realm, each new horror he throws at them tests the limits of their powers and leaves Avery with the realization she’s different from the rest of the coven. There’s a reason why Regan wants her so badly, and the growing strength of her powers draws her toward the lure of darker magic.  


   Can Avery resist the darkness inside herself to save the people she loves most, or will she succumb to the temptation of Regan’s sinister promises of absolute power?

Read the first four chapters of an epic and enchanting YA fantasy from NYT bestselling author Megan Shepherd, called “a darkly enchanting saga…bound to attract fans of Leigh Bardugo” by Entertainment Weekly.

“A magical dash through the streets of Paris. Part caper, part fairy tale, part opulent witch society, you'll be swept away by all of it. GRIM LOVELIES absolutely dazzles.” —Kendare Blake, #1 NYT bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

“I lost myself in this magical book.” —Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval and Legendary

Seventeen-year-old Anouk envies the human world, where people known as Pretties lavish themselves in fast cars, high fashion, and have the freedom to fall in love. But Anouk can never have those things, because she is not really human. Enchanted from animal to human girl and forbidden to venture beyond her familiar Parisian prison, Anouk is a Beastie: destined for a life surrounded by dust bunnies and cinders serving Mada Vittora, the evil witch who spelled her into existence. That is, until one day she finds her mistress murdered in a pool of blood—and Anouk is accused of the crime.

Now, the world she always dreamed of is rife with danger. Pursued through Paris by the underground magical society known as the Haute, Anouk and her fellow Beasties only have three days to find the real killer before the spell keeping them human fades away. If they fail, they will lose the only lives they’ve ever known…but if they succeed, they could be more powerful than anyone ever bargained for.

From New York Times bestselling author Megan Shepherd, Grim Lovelies is the glittering first book in a new, epic YA fantasy series. Prepare to be spellbound by the world of Grim Lovelies, where secrets have been long buried, friends can become enemies, and everything—especially humanity—comes at a price.
