"Davis confidently paints a magical world rich in detail where human trials unfold against a fairy-tale tapestry. Weaving a fresh legend from a mosaic of ancient stories, she creates a bold new world where wit equals witchery and kindness is as valued as courage." (John C. Foster, author of Mister White)
The downtown core of Toronto is being consumed by Elysium, a drug that allows its users to slip through the permeable edges of this world into the next, before consuming them utterly. Peddled by the icy Srebrenka, few have managed to escape the drug and its dealer. But Maggie has.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen and woven through with Northern folk tales, The Grimoire of Kensington Market is the story of Maggie, proprietor of the Grimoire bookstore, the cosmic nexus of all the world's tales.
Years after beating her addiction, Maggie is dismayed by the reappearance of Srebrenka in her life. Although she resists temptation, she quickly learns her brother, Kyle, has been ensnared by Srebrenka's beguiling.
Driven by guilt and love, Maggie sets off on a quest to rescue Kyle from the Silver World, where robbers stalk the woods, tavern keepers weave clouds to hide mountains, and caribou race along the Northern lights. There, she must discover what strengths lie within her.

One of the best Modern fantasy novels I have had the pleasure to enjoy. Imaginative and well woven. Narration was spot-on!

Great book! Highly recommend!
Maggie encounters friends and dangers on her quest in this magical world. Davis and Jones immersed me in that world where I didn’t want to leave. The lessons Maggie learns along the way are lessons for all of us to learn or remember. The kind of book where you reach the end and you immediately hope there’s a second installment. I became attached to characters and wanted another adventure.
