Books On Our Radar: Sleep Like Death by Kalynn Bayron

I have adored every Kalynn Bayron book I’ve read so far, so I am extremely excited for Sleep Like Death! Sleep Like Death is a fairytale inspired retelling of Snow White set in the same world as Cinderella is Dead! But if you never read one of Kalynn’s books, you can expect darker themes, richer worldbuilding, and queer characters! Add this one to your summer TBRs for the June 25th release!

Many thanks to Bloomsbury for the advance copy!

New York Times bestselling author and TikTok sensation Kalynn Bayron returns to fairytales with a lush, thrilling and original YA Snow White retelling that brings a new and exciting voice to this familiar tale. Perfect for fans of Cinderella Is Dead.

Only the truly desperate - and foolish - seek out the Knight, an ancient monster who twists wishes into curses. Eve knows this first-hand: one of her mothers was cursed by the Knight and trapped in the body of a songbird. With the unique abilities to communicate with animals and conjure weapons from nature, Eve has trained all her life to defeat him.

With more and more villagers harmed by the Knight's corrupt deals, Eve believes she's finally ready to face him. But when Queen Regina begins acting strangely - talking to seemingly no one, isolating herself, and lashing out at the slightest provocation - Eve must question if her powers are enough to save her family and her kingdom.
