by Leigh Bardugo

Publisher: Flatiron Books
Genre: Adult Fantasy
The mesmerizing adult debut from #1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo
Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?
Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.
Just knowing that one of my favorite authors is coming out with an ADULT FANTASY novel has me squealing. I am very happy that some of my favorite YA Authors are slowly transitioning to Adult since I am not much of a YA reader anymore. I can’t wait to read this! Leigh Bardugo has made an endless point that this is ADULT and will have some disturbing scenes which I’m honestly all ready for. Also, I’m excited to see what she can bring with another world since pretty much all we know is The Grishaverse. I love seeing authors expand. This book sounds right up my ally. I love secret societies, mysteries, and schools. Funny enough, I’m currently watching The Order on Netflix and the synopsis reminds me a tad bit of it. October can’t come any sooner.
