Cursed

release date: Nov 15, 2022
Cursed
New York Times–bestselling author Marissa Meyer concludes her young-adult retelling of Rumpelstiltskin in Cursed, the sequel to Gilded. Serilda and Gild attempt to break the curses that tether their spirits to Adalheid’s haunted castle before the Endless Moon, when the Erlking means to capture one of the seven gods and make a wish to return his lover, Perchta, from the underworld. But the Erlking doesn’t want just one god – he wants to capture all seven and force them to bring down the veil that keeps the Dark Ones separate from the land of the mortals. Serilda and Gild must try to thwart his plans, all while solving the mystery of Gild’s forgotten name, freeing his younger sister who is trapped inside Gravenstone Castle, and protecting their unborn child. Romance, adventure and Serilda’s journey to finding her power as a woman, a mother and a partner make this a retelling that Meyer fans – old and new – will treasure. Marissa Meyer is the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles series – Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Fairest, Winter – the New York Times–bestselling Renegades trilogy, as well as the graphic novel Wires and Nerve. Her first standalone novel, Heartless, was also a #1 New York Times bestseller. Her contemporary romance Instant Karma was a #1 Indie Bestseller. In 2021 Meyer published Gilded, the first novel of her two-part retelling of the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin. And in 2022 she was a contributor to and editor of the collection of romance stories Serendipity. Marissa lives in Tacoma, Washington, with her husband and their two daughters. ‘This is an intriguing retelling, with a modern twist, of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale...The cliff-hanging denouement promises a sequel.’ Magpies on Gilded ‘Utterly immersive and captivating...I cannot bear the wait for the next instalment.’ Joy Lawn, Paperbark Words on Gilded ‘When it comes to reimagined fairy tales, the reigning queen of the genre is Marissa Meyer...This dark, enchanting book is Meyer at the height of her powers — crafting a new tale with an old-school feel where nobody is guaranteed a happily-everafter. It is fresh and utterly engrossing while also familiar — just what Meyer does best.’ New York Times on Gilded ‘A gorgeously intricate tale that will have readers locked in from the start...Meyer weaves an enchanting tale filled with whimsically magical moments and some serious suspense. [She] knows how to capture fantastical worlds, and this one is pure perfection for her fans and new readers alike.’ Booklist on Gilded ‘Intricate worldbuilding and star-crossed romance help temper the Erlking’s brutality, and...well-drawn characters will leave readers craving a sequel.’ Publishers Weekly on Gilded ‘Meyer flips tradition with a simple question: What if the king whom the miller’s daughter marries is the villain, and Rumpelstiltskin is her only way out?...The queen of fairy tale retellings has spun what is sure to be another best seller.’ School Library Journal on Gilded

Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her. Pru giddily makes use of the power, punishing everyone from public vandals to mean gossips, but there is one person on whom her powers consistently backfire: Quint Erickson, her slacker of a lab partner. Quint is annoyingly cute and impressively noble, especially when it comes to his work with the rescue center for local sea animals. When Pru resigns herself to working at the rescue center for extra credit, she begins to uncover truths about baby otters, environmental upheaval, and romantic crossed signals—not necessarily in that order. Her newfound karmic insights reveal how thin the line is between virtue and vanity, generosity and greed . . . love and hate... and fate.
