Synopsis

When the witch Baba Yaga walks her house into the backyard, eleven-year-old Summer enters into a bargain for her heart's desire. Her search will take her to the strange, surreal world of Orcus, where birds talk, women change their shape, and frogs sometimes grow on trees. But underneath the whimsy of Orcus lies a persistent darkness, and Summer finds herself hunted by the monstrous Houndbreaker, who serves the distant, mysterious Queen-in-Chains...

An illustrated version of this novel was produced by Sofawolf Press in 2017, with cover and illustrations by Lauren "Luve" Henderson. That edition was a finalist for The World Science Fiction Society (WSFS) Award for Best Young Adult Book in 2018, its first year of existence.
