Leah Cypess

Leah Cypess is the author of the acclaimed Mistwood and its companion, Nightspell.

Her new novel is Death Marked, the sequel & conclusion to Death Sworn.

Recently I asked Cypess about what she was reading. Her reply:
I just finished two fantastic books -- The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, a YA fantasy about a town that lives in an uneasy (and dangerous) alliance with the fae, and The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison, an adult fantasy about a half-goblin who has become the emperor of an elven empire. Both are very different books -- The Darkest Part of the Forest is contemporary, fast-moving, and involves lots of secrets hidden in the past, while The Goblin Emperor is a slower, immersive book that is heavy on the world-building. What they have in common is a sense of wonder -- of simmering magic and difference lying beneath the course of events described in each book.
