Bury Our Bones in the Midnight Soil

by V. E. Schwab

This book is a triumph: dark, lovely and utterly bewitching. Schwab has written a fierce new take on the immorality tale and this queer love story features death, resurrection, hunger, and rage. We follow the lives of three young women, their stories tangling like roots. They grow wild, beautiful and strange. And all of them grow teeth.

From the very first page, V.E. dazzles – we can tell we’re in the hands of a master storyteller and her characters are dynamite. I’m completely in love with this incandescent novel. The whole Tor UK team is thrilled too that we’ll be working with such an incredible author. It will be such a huge privilege to publish an author of V. E.’s stature at Pan Macmillan.
Bella Pagan, Tor Publisher
It’s a dream come true, getting to combine forces with Tor US and Tor UK to usher Bones into the world. This book is my bones, my blood, my heart. And I know it's in the best of hands with Bella and her team.
