Description

In a village of masked men, each man is compelled to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his "goddess" without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. A man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love-and if she can't or won't, he remains masked forever.

Seventeen-year-old Noll's childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll's own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her. She is in fact the goddess of the mysterious lord of the village, a man who refuses to let Noll have her right as a woman to spurn him.

Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman and the magic of man. The stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death-and neither Noll nor the veiled lord is willing to lose.

Winner of The Romance Reviews' Summer 2016 Readers' Choice Award in Young Adult Romance.

Review quote

"The story is fun and engaging, featuring a female protagonist who will resonate with young teens." School Library Journal

"You may think you have this book figured out, but I'm here to tell you that you're wrong. I can't tell you how many times my jaw dropped while reading this, as Amy surprised me again and again with unexpected plot twists. If you're a fan of fantasy novels looking for something different, make sure you pick this one up!" Melissa Giorgio, author of The Silver Moon Saga

"I loved Nobody's Goddess by Amy McNulty so much that I stayed up until midnight to finish it, and then couldn't fall asleep until 1 a.m." Jennifer Bardsley, author of Genesis Girl, @YA Gal
