Product description


"The Bone Shard Daughter is one of the best fantasy novels I've read in a long time. With stunningly intricate world-building that leaps off the page and characters who are so vibrant that you wish they were real, it grabs you by the heart and the throat from the first pages and doesn't let go until long after it's over. This book is truly special."―New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas

The Bone Shard Daughter] deserves as much attention as it can get."―Locus

"Original and intricately written."―
Ms. Magazine

"An absolute stunner of a fantasy debut...Simply awe-inspiring."―

"Stewart gives us eerie, grungy bone magic that permeates through every layer of a fascinating and dangerous world. Strange monsters--some friendly, most not--unsettling rituals, and a cast of wonderful characters trying to fix a world on the brink of shattering,
The Bone Shard Daughter is utterly absorbing. I adored it."―Emily Duncan, NYT bestselling author of Wicked Saints

The Bone Shard Daughter is intricate and expansive, incisive and thoughtful -- a complex web of political and personal intrigue spun around questions of privilege, duty, and love. Stewart's debut is bound to have fantasy readers clamoring for the next installment."―Kerstin Hall, author of The Border Keeper

The Bone Shard Daughter seized my attention and wouldn't let go. It's an unflinching examination of how people in power exploit and dehumanize those they are supposed to serve, but it also celebrates the uplifting power of love and friendship. It's a thoroughly fantastic read and I eagerly await the sequel."―Kevin Hearne

About the Author

Andrea Stewart is the daughter of immigrants, and was raised in a number of places across the United States. Her parents always emphasized science and education, so she spent her childhood immersed in Star Trek and odd-smelling library books.

When her (admittedly ambitious) dreams of becoming a dragon slayer didn't pan out, she instead turned to writing books. She now lives in sunny California, and in addition to writing, can be found herding cats, looking at birds, and falling down research rabbit holes.
