"Nettle & Bone" by T. Kingfisher
"This teen fantasy novel is an absorbing, atmospheric, and strange spin on some classic fairy tales, gothic and very compelling. I absolutely loved it. Kingfisher crafts a brooding plot, full of wonderful storytelling, characters, and even a slow (read: very slow) burn romance. I gobbled this up and look forward to reading more from this author. I would recommend Nettle & Bone to fans of Holly Black, Naomi Novik, and V. E. Schwab."
