“The Grimm brothers can’t hold a candle to Premee Mohamed and her fever dream of a fantasy novella.”—Polygon

A world-weary woman races against the clock to survive a deadly forest in this dark, otherworldly fairytale from Nebula and World Fantasy Award-winning author Premee Mohamed.

At the northern edge of a land ruled by a merciless foreign tyrant lies a wild, forbidden forest ruled by powerful magic.


Thorn—the only one to ever enter the forest and survive—is forced to go

back inside to retrieve the tyrant’s missing children. Inside await traps

and trickery, ancient monsters, and hauntings of the past.

One day is all Veris is afforded. One misstep will cost everything.
