Tales From the Hinterland
  • Tales From the Hinterland

  • Grimm's Fairy Tales meets Ransom Riggs in this deeply creepy, gorgeously illustrated collection of twelve original pitch-dark fairytales, from international bestselling author of The Hazel Wood, Melissa Albert.

    Journey into the Hinterland, where every page tells a wondrously terrible adventure . . .

    In this brutal and beautiful world a young woman spends a night with Death, brides are wed to a mysterious house in the trees, and an enchantress is killed twice - and still lives.

    But it's not safe inside these pages, and once you enter, you may never want to leave . . .

    The highly anticipated collection of stories set in the creepy, haunting fairytale world first introduced in Melissa Albert's internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed Hazel Wood series.

    Featuring beautiful interior illustrations by Nick Hayes.
