Tonight, I Burn

Orbit Books/Hachette ANZ

Penny Albright—witch, Death Walker, and member of Thorn Coven of the Kingdom of Halstett—will risk her soul to save her sister's life. She will fall in love with a man who deals in lies and a woman who weaves the truth. She will ignite a magical rebellion that will change the world.

Forced to patrol the veil between the realms of Life and Death, one thorn witch—and only one—must cross the veil each night by burning at the stake. Each morning, that witch draws on their magic to return. Failure to follow the rules risks the veil and risks them all.

But one morning, Penny's favorite sister Ella doesn't return. And that night, determined to find her, Penny breaks the rules. She burns in secret. And that is where her story truly begins. Because it's not just her sister's life that hangs in the balance. It's the fate of all magic.

All it takes is one witch—and one spark—to set the world ablaze.

Publication is set for Fall '23 from Orbit Books, Orbit UK, Moa Press New Zealand, Hachette Australia, and Hidra Spain.
