Within These Wicked Walls
A REESE WITHERSPOON YA BOOK CLUB PICK! INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ''Lauren Blackwood''s can''t-miss debut is a magical, Ethiopian-inspired remix of Jane Eyre'' Harper''s Bazaar What the heart desires, the house destroys... Andromeda is a debtera - an exorcist hired to cleanse households of the Evil Eye. She would be hired, that is, if her mentor hadn''t thrown her out before she could earn her license. Now her only hope is to find a Patron - a rich, well-connected individual who will vouch for her abilities. When a handsome heir named Magnus reaches out to hire her, she takes the job without question. Never mind that he''s rude and eccentric, that the contract comes with outlandish rules, and that the many previous debteras had quit before her. If Andromeda wants to earn a living, she has no choice. But this is a job like no other, and Magnus is hiding far more than she has been trained for. Death is the likely outcome if she stays, the reason every debtera before her quit. But leaving Magnus to live out his curse isn''t an option because, heaven help her, she''s fallen for him. Stunningly romantic, Lauren Blackwood''s heartstopping debut, Within These Wicked Walls, ushers in an exciting new fantasy voice. ''An intricate magic system, a grimly humorous Black heroine, AND a heart-thumping romance? This book leaves nothing wanting'' Jordan Ifueko, New York Times bestselling author of Raybearer "Fierce, eerie and heartfelt... a romantic and spine-chilling reimagining of a classic. I loved every creepy, swoon-worthy moment of it." - Laura E. Weymouth, author of The Light Between Worlds
