In Nancy Springer’s enthralling fourth volume of the Book of Isle, two young princes set out to destroy their own father and the pervasive evil that poisons the kingdom An epic saga set in an ageless island stronghold of magic and mystery, Nancy Springer’s Book of Isle series is considered by many to be among the most accomplished offerings in all of fantasy literature, as lyrical and inventive as the classic works of J. R. R. Tolkien. In this unforgettable novel, a violent rift in a royal house threatens to tear an entire kingdom asunder. The next in line to rule the troubled realm of Melior, Prince Tirell gave his heart to the gentle and beautiful peasant girl Mylitta. But she died at the cruel whim of Tirell’s father, the king, who insists on a more politically expedient match for his rebellious son. Since the murder of his love, Tirell’s heart has hardened, and now, with the aid of his younger brother, Frain, the healer, he seeks an army that will help him defeat the evil, unrepentant monarch. All hope for victory in the war to come awaits the brothers somewhere deep in the mysteries of the Vale, where a beautiful goddess also dwells. But a sinister presence is spreading its malevolence throughout the land—and Melior can never again be truly whole until the kingdom is rid of the terrible scourge of the Black Beast.

The duke's first assignment for Jenna and company is to locate Ursula, the estranged Duchess of House Lilith suspected of murdering her sire.

A Brush with the Moon
One incident can change your life. For Sophie, it was the day the fox attacked her.
All Sophie ever wanted was a way out. Only a few weeks ago, she was a quiet art student with an overbearing mother and no higher dream than starting university and reuniting with her BFF, but destiny intervenes in the form of a fox bite.
If being attacked by a rabid animal isn’t freaky enough, her new town has secrets. People are dying, and Sophie feels she is being watched. Then there’s the arrogant and annoyingly sexy Sebastian with his plummy accent and come-to-bed eyes creeping her out. She should stay well away, but then he does live in the spooky manor house, and curiosity is her middle name.
Rise of the Hellion
Something’s stalking Sophie—and it’s not just her boyfriend’s cute cousin!
Pulled from a life of obscurity and chosen to take over from a dying goddess, Sophie is thrown into a world where the supernatural is normal and the humans are oblivious.
Without meaning to, Sophie is making enemies, and as corpses mount, she fears for the people she cares for, but when someone she loves is accused of the killings, Sophie is convinced it can’t be true and sets out to prove their innocence.
Fall from Grace
Girl or goddess? Sophie has a decision to make.
With the supernatural world in a state of unrest and her feelings for Connor intensifying, Sophie’s life is out of control, and she needs to get it back on track. But no matter how hard she tries, her desire to do what is right is faltering.
Life is complicated.
Is the chance of happiness really worth destroying her future?
One thing is certain. To fulfil her destiny, she must leave behind everything she loves.
