Angela Mann was raised and educated in England, worked in publishing companies on both sides of the Atlantic, and is now the youth events director for Kepler’s. She reads voraciously and eclectically, usually falling for whatever calls loudest from her bookshelf despite all other obligations, searching for things either funny, offbeat, apocalyptic, provocative, beautiful, or true.
Imagine an inn on the Thames near Oxford one dark evening where people have gathered to tell stories. The door opens and in staggers an injured stranger holding a child, who appears to be dead.
But half an hour later the child opens her eyes. Is this magic or a miracle? Several people claim her but she does not speak. This gorgeously told tale is part mystery, part fairy tale, part historical fantasy that I could not love more. --Angela
A heist novel set in an alternate 19th century Paris – yes please!
The Order of Babel are looking for an ancient artifact and they want Severin to find it for them. The prize? His true inheritance. Will it be worth the risk? My first read of 2019 and I absolutely loved it. --Angela
