A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Cursed by the god of lies, a poor miller's daughter has developed a talent for spinning stories that are entirely untrue. When one of Serilda's outlandish tales draws the attention of the Erlking and his undead hunters, she is swept away into a grim world where ghouls and phantoms prowl the earth and ravens track her every move. The king orders Serilda to spin straw into gold or be killed for telling falsehoods. In her desperation, Serilda unwittingly summons a mysterious boy to her aid. He agrees to help her ... for a price. Soon Serilda realizes there is more than one secret hidden in the castle walls, including an ancient curse that must be broken if she hopes to end the tyranny of the king forever.
