A History of Glitter and Blood

A History of Glitter and Blood

A teenage fairy contends with the consequences of war in this coming-of-age fantasy by the award-winning author of Teeth and Not Otherwise Specified. Sixteen-year-old Beckan and her friends are the only fairies brave enough to stay in Ferrum when war breaks out. Now there is tension between the immortal fairies, the subterranean gnomes, and the mysterious tightropers who arrived to liberate the fairies. But when Beckan’s clan is forced to venture into the gnome underworld to survive, they find themselves tentatively forming unlikely friendships and making sacrifices they couldn’t have imagined. As danger mounts, Beckan finds herself caught between her loyalty to her friends, her desire for peace, and a love she never expected. This stunning, lyrical fantasy is a powerful exploration of what makes a family, what justifies a war, and what it means to truly love. Praise for A History of Glitter and Blood “With Ferrum, Moskowitz has built a vividly gritty fairy realm and populated it with a richly diverse cast of characters. . . . This novel of friendship, love, and fighting for one’s beliefs should find a place among fans of the modern fairy story.” —Kirkus Reviews “Reminiscent of Holly Black and Laini Taylor, this gritty fantasy/war story is also an exploration of love in many forms . . . and creating a family of choice.” —The Horn Book Magazine “The author’s talent is evident as she ambitiously tackles complex themes of violence, sexual awakening, politics, and even infertility.” —School Library Journal “Thick, sultry, lyrical language builds a strong sense of atmosphere . . . [in] this rich, off-kilter snarl of a story.” —Booklist “Gritty, intense, sensational, and moving.” —Fresh Fiction
