A MORTAL SACRIFICE . . .
But then Elora’s supporters in the Dark Court turn on her, believing she has forsaken them in favor of humans. When the Dark Queen kidnaps two of her human friends, Elora must mount a daring rescue mission to free them before her mother offers them up as a sacrifice.

Formats: Paperback, eBook, audiobook
A Kingdom at War . . .
Elora, the young princess of the Dark Faeries, plans to overthrow her tyrannical mother, the Dark Queen, and bring equality to faeriekind. All she has to do is convince her mother’s loathed enemy, the Bright Queen, to join her cause. But the Bright Queen demands an offering first: a human boy who is a “young leader of men.”
A Dark Princess In Disguise . . .
To steal a mortal, Elora must become a mortal—at least, by all appearances. And infiltrating a high school is surprisingly easy. When Elora meets Taylor, the seventeen-year-old who’s plotting to overthrow a ruthless bully, she thinks she’s found her offering . . . until she starts to fall in love.

PLEASE WELCOME CHELSEA TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
- What is on your nightstand?
A mug (containing the remnants of today’s caramel latte), a stack of books I’m planning to read next (among them are SHADOWSHAPER and UNDER THE LIGHTS), and a couple of fun-sized Twix wrappers because I may have an obsession with Halloween candy!!
- What author would you totally fan?
I’d love to meet Laini Taylor because her writing is so lush and beautiful! And before I was reading her books, I used to visit the booth at Saturday Market where she sold greeting cards and other artistic pieces here in Portland!
- What makes you cringe?
I have an inexplicable fear of sprouting potatoes. You know, when a potato sits for too long, and those little green points grow out of them? Seriously, just talking about it is making my hair stand on end!
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
It totally depends on the project! I used to always go with the flow, but with THE LAST FAERIE QUEEN, I couldn’t figure out how to write the first half. I kept writing it in the wrong direction, getting farther and farther away from the end, so several months in, I decided to write the second half first. It was the only time I’ve done something like that, but it totally worked! Then, when I went back to write the first half, I had a better idea of where things needed to go.
- I loved The S Word, are there any publishing plans to go back to real life or are you enjoying fairy tales too much now?
Thank you!! And yes! My current manuscript (which is in the hands of my fabulous agent) is a realistic YA novel, in the vein of THE S-WORD. Except this time, it’s a murder mystery set in a very religious town, and it’s up to the main character to stop a murder before it happens! I will be absolutely thrilled if it sells.
