"In this sequel to The Hazel Wood, narrator Rebecca Soler returns to breathe life into Alice, who has now escaped from the magical story-fueled world of the Hinterland...Soler's narration brims with Alice's anger and grit, her conflicting emotions spilling into every word." (AudioFile magazine)

"A must-read for fans of portal fantasies, mysteries, and readers who prefer their magic with bloody sharp edges." (Booklist, starred review)

The highly anticipated sequel to Melissa Albert’s beloved New York Times best-selling debut, The Hazel Wood!

In The Night Country, Alice Proserpine dives back into a menacing, mesmerizing world of dark fairy tales and hidden doors. Follow her and Ellery Finch as they learn The Hazel Wood was just the beginning, and that worlds die not with a whimper, but a bang. 

With Finch’s help, Alice escaped the Hinterland and her reclusive grandmother’s dark legacy. Now, she and the rest of the dregs of the fairy tale world have washed up in New York City, where Alice is trying to make a new, unmagical life. But something is stalking the Hinterland’s survivors - and she suspects their deaths may have a darker purpose. Meanwhile, in the winking out world of the Hinterland, Finch seeks his own adventure, and - if he can find it - a way back home....

Praise for The Night Country:

"The Night Country is a new modern classic for thrill seekers young and old. A stunning sequel filled with wondrous delights and daring forays into the dark. Not to be missed!" (Kim Liggett, author of The Grace Year)

The Sequel to Hazelwood

I’m not a sequel person, however, The Hazel Wood left me with an eerie yearning for more of Albert’s writing. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. The first book was dark and had me hanging on every word. I was afraid this book would fall short (as many sequels do), but the writer was able to recapture the dark atmosphere of the hinterland and bring more nightmares to life in this sequel. I recommend this book and series and look forward to whatever tales the writer wants to “spin” next.
