âAchingly atmospheric and beautifully sharp, A Study in Drowning will draw you in from the first page.â âRory Power, New York Times bestselling author of Wilder Girls
Bestselling author Ava Reid makes her YA debut in this dark academic fantasy perfect for fans of Melissa Albert and Elana K. Arnold.
Effy Sayre has always believed in fairy tales. Haunted by visions of the Fairy King since childhood, sheâs had no choice. Her tattered copy of AngharadâEmrys Myrddinâs epic about a mortal girl who falls in love with the Fairy King, then destroys himâis the only thing keeping her afloat. So when Myrddinâs family announces a contest to redesign the late authorâs estate, Effy feels certain itâs her destiny.
But musty, decrepit Hiraeth Manor is an impossible task, and its residents are far from welcoming. Including Preston HÃ©loury, a stodgy young literature scholar determined to expose Myrddin as a fraud. As the two rivals piece together clues about Myrddinâs legacy, dark forces, both mortal and magical, conspire against themâand the truth may bring them both to ruin.
Part historical fantasy, part rivals-to-lovers romance, part Gothic mystery, and all haunting, dreamlike atmosphere, Ava Reid's powerful YA debut will lure in readers who loved The Atlas Six, House of Salt and Sorrows, or Girl, Serpent, Thorn.
