Language of Thorns: Midnight Tales and Dangerous Magic
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Illustrator: Sara Kipin

Travel to a world of dark bargains struck by moonlight, of haunted towns and hungry woods, of talking beasts and gingerbread golems, where a young mermaid's voice can summon deadly storms and where a river might do a lovestruck boy's bidding but only for a terrible price.
