The Great Depression has bound a nation in despair - and only a privileged few have risen above it: the exorbitantly wealthy ... and the hucksters who feed upon them. Diego, a seventeen-year-old illegal Mexican immigrant, owes his salvation to master grifter Thomas Schell. Together with Schell's gruff and powerful partner, they sail comfortably through hard times, scamming New York's grieving rich with elaborate, ingeniously staged séances - until an impossible occurrence changes everything. While "communing with spirits," Schell sees an image of a young girl in a pane of glass, silently entreating the con man for help. Though well aware that his otherworldly "powers" are a sham, Schell inexplicably offers his services to help find the lost child - drawing Diego along with him into a tangled maze of deadly secrets and terrible experimentation. At once a hypnotically compelling mystery and a stunningly evocative portrait of Depression-era New York, The Girl in the Glass is a masterly literary adventure from a writer of exemplary vision and skill.

Two worlds. One glass wall. No turning back. The human race has been divided. The chosen few live in the safety of the domes, watching through their glass walls as those left on the outside suffer and die. But desperation has brought invention. New drugs have the ability to alter humans, giving them the strength to roam the poisoned night unafraid—but survival comes at a terrible price. Seventeen-year-old Nola Kent has spent her life in the domes, training to protect her little piece of the world within the glass. The mission of the domes is to preserve the human race, not to help the sick and starving. When the fate of an outsider child falls into her hands, Nola dares to venture beyond the security of her home, diving into a world of darkness and vampires. Life within the glass didn’t prepare her for the realities of suffering or the depth of forbidden love. When blood washes over the domes, Nola must choose between her home and her heart. Girl of Glass is an action-packed dystopian tale. If you like romance, strong heroines, and a touch of paranormal danger, then you’ll love joining Megan O’Russell’s 150,000+ satisfied readers. Download Girl of Glass. The apocalypse awaits. Praise for Girl of Glass “Honestly, I have stayed up far too late reading this - and I have no regrets.” – Amazon Review “In this thrilling novel, Russell explores an apocalyptic world through the eyes of a girl who must find a way to bridge the gap between humans and monsters, all the while moving on from an uncertain life that knows nothing of sorrow.” – Readers Favorite “A wild ride with strong emotions, real problems & hard choice solutions. Makes the pages fly. Creates a need to read the entire series to see what happens.” – Amazon Review “I loved this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat as I was reading. Looking forward to reading the next one.” – Amazon Review “I don’t want to give too much away, so all I will say is this book is probably close to the perfect dystopian YA novel.” – Amazon Review Author Interview What inspired you to write Girl of Glass? I wanted to write a story that combines a mid-apocalyptic world with the excitement of the paranormal—weaving vampires, werewolves, and a touch of zombie action into a story about a girl living in privilege at the end of civilization. What makes Girl of Glass a different kind of dystopian tale? Most dystopian books are written from the point of view of the downtrodden. You’re seeing everything through the eyes of the people desperately trying to survive from day to day. Nola is one of the privileged few chosen to survive the apocalypse. Seeing the end of the world from the point of view of the chosen 1% helps to explore the question of what our obligation is to help those who suffer. Why would readers enjoy Girl of Glass? With a mix of romance, danger, vampires, and survival against terrible odds, Girl of Glass offers readers a unique story that will keep them up late, desperate to find out what comes next.

"The unpredictability of the story made it a fun read that kept my attention throughout. The twists and turns kept the story engaging while the overall story had me wanting more. The story starts more like the traditional tale of Snow White and morphs into something completely new and different adding a lot more magic and mystery. By the end of the story you'll be asking yourself just what side you're on...” – The Book Curmudgeon Most know the story of Little Snow White. But what if that’s only half of the real tale? The story is so much more than a witch, an apple and a mirror -- and the truth is rarely so simple. Agrippine, the Queen of Arcana, a once innocent child with a future full of promise, suffers a terrible tragedy and abusive past. After being traded to the neighboring kingdom by her father as political leverage, Agrippine relies on the Dark Arts and blood magic – her only lasting tie to her mother and her childhood - to rule the kingdom under a reign of terror. Genevieve, a spoiled princess unconcerned with her kingdom’s distress, lacks compassion and understanding for the queen she will need to become in order to usurp her evil-stepmother. Being queen is a job she doesn’t want. Too much responsibility. Too difficult a task. But when the Agrippine is advised to kill Genevieve in order to preserve her power, the princess must flee the castle to escape imminent death. Left to survive on her own, Genevieve must step out of her world as a self-consumed princess to discover her inner strength and learn what it means to sacrifice in order to save herself and her kingdom. Through a series of choices, encounters, and devastating losses, these two women, who seemingly have their destinies determined, change the course of their fate to create their own version of happily ever after.

Melissa Bashardoust’s acclaimed debut novel Girls Made of Snow and Glass is “Snow White as it’s never been told before...a feminist fantasy fairy tale not to be missed” (BookPage)! “Utterly superb.” —ALA Booklist, starred review “Dark, fantastical, hauntingly evocative.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review “An empowering and progressive original retelling.” —SLJ, starred review Sixteen-year-old Mina is motherless, her magician father is vicious, and her silent heart has never beat with love for anyone—has never beat at all, in fact, but she’d always thought that fact normal. She never guessed that her father cut out her heart and replaced it with one of glass. When she moves to Whitespring Castle and sees its king for the first time, Mina forms a plan: win the king’s heart with her beauty, become queen, and finally know love. The only catch is that she’ll have to become a stepmother. Fifteen-year-old Lynet looks just like her late mother, and one day she discovers why: a magician created her out of snow in the dead queen’s image, at her father’s order. But despite being the dead queen made flesh, Lynet would rather be like her fierce and regal stepmother, Mina. She gets her wish when her father makes Lynet queen of the southern territories, displacing Mina. Now Mina is starting to look at Lynet with something like hatred, and Lynet must decide what to do—and who to be—to win back the only mother she’s ever known...or else defeat her once and for all. Entwining the stories of both Lynet and Mina in the past and present, Girls Made of Snow and Glass traces the relationship of two young women doomed to be rivals from the start. Only one can win all, while the other must lose everything—unless both can find a way to reshape themselves and their story.
