5 Weeks Until EVEN AND ODD!

 Five weeks until my next book for kids, EVEN AND ODD, comes out!!! This book is chock-full of magic. While I was writing it, I deliberately asked myself on every single page, "Can I add more magic?" Actually devoted an entire draft to that.

Guess I've always secretly felt that when the White Queen said to Alice, "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast," she was throwing down the gauntlet. EVEN AND ODD has many, many impossible things before, during, and after breakfast.

When the border between the mundane world they live in and the magical land they were born in shuts abruptly, they must find a way to reunite their worlds -- with the help of a unicorn named Jeremy!

THE BONE MAKER comes out today!!!

Today is the book birthday for my new novel, THE BONE MAKER! It's a standalone epic fantasy for adults from Harper Voyager about second chances and bone magic. A lot of bone magic!

THE BONE MAKER begins twenty-five years after the five Heroes of Vos defeated a corrupt magician and his inhuman army made of animated bones. They think their story is over. But evil doesn't stop just because someone says "the end."  Now they're called on once again, but they're not the same heroes they once were -- one is broken, one's gone soft, one's pursuing a simple life, one is stuck in the past, and one is dead.

I loved every second of writing it and am so excited it's out in the world!

THE BONE MAKER is an Apple Best Book of the Month!

Got some lovely news today! Apple Books chose my new epic fantasy, THE BONE MAKER, as one of the #BestBooksOfMarch! So absolutely thrilled! Check it out here: apple.co/bestbooks

Apple Books Review: "In this captivating stand-alone fantasy adventure from celebrated author Sarah Beth Durst, a magical warrior takes risks in battle -- and in love. It's been years since Kreya and her small band of fighters defeated an army of skeletons led by the evil sorcerer Eklor. Kreya lost her husband, Jentt, in the conflict; now she's tired and lonely. With her mystical powers fading, Durst's heroine decides to use Eklor's forbidden magic to resurrect Jentt -- sending her on a perilous journey to fix the cosmic imbalance that her wartime actions created. We were amazed by the rich detail and fascinating history of Durst's fantastical world, where the power of magic is matched by the sheer force of the characters' emotions. Awesomely epic and deeply moving, The Bone Maker put us under a deep spell."
