Revisit Melissa Albert’s Hazel Wood world with 12 Tales from the Hinterland, where an enchantress is killed twice – and lives – a young woman spends a night with Death, and more. In Romina Garber’s Cazadora: A Novel (Wolves of No World #2), Manu and her friends cross the mystical border into Kerana, a cursed realm in Argentina rife with werewolves and witches. In Jordan Ifueko’s Redemptor (Raybearer #2), an Empress Redemptor sits on the throne for the first time, and must learn whether to die for justice … or to live for it. Darcie Little Badger draws on Lipan Apache storytelling for A Snake Falls to Earth, in which two teens’ worlds are driven together by catastrophe and a strange sickness, though there are some who will kill to keep them apart. Moderated by educator and Frolic YA book reviewer Aurora Dominguez.
