by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

 

Well-intentioned grad student Jessica unwittingly stumbles into a strange, sordid fantasy when she invites runaway teen Nihar into her home. The fanciful tale he weaves unveils a debauched realm of exploitation and terror that threatens to unravel Jessica’s privileged worldview, but is any of it true, or merely the delusions of a troubled young mind? Drawing from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's King of Shadows conjures a world more strange than true; a distempered fairyland which seeps through the cracks of reality.

 

King of Shadows is appropriate for middle schoolers and up. Parental discretion advised.
