Description

Miller always delivers on queer fantasy.--Dahlia Adler, Buzzfeed
Anyone who reads Linsey Miller knows that her worldbuilding, characters, and tense plot lines make for some of the best dark fantasy novels in the YA genre.--Brianna Robinson, The Young Folks

The eat-the-rich, deliciously dark fantasy you've been waiting for. A girl with the power of the banished gods must bind herself to a wicked Prince to save her crumbling world, as the poor are sacrificed to save the rich.

Lorena Adler has a secret--she holds the power of the banished gods, the Noble and the Vile, inside her. But she has spent her entire life hiding from the world and her past. Lorena's content to spend her days as an undertaker in a small town, marry her best friend, Julian, and live an unfulfilling life so long as no one uncovers her true nature.

But when the notoriously bloodthirsty and equally Vile crown prince comes to arrest Julian's father, he immediately recognizes Lorena for what she is. So, she makes a deal--a fair trial for her betrothed's father in exchange for her service to the crown.

The prince is desperate for her help. He's spent years trying to repair the weakening Door that holds back the Vile...and he's losing the battle. As Lorena learns more about the Door and the horrifying price it takes to keep it closed, she'll have to embrace both parts of herself to survive.This heart-pounding YA story of magic and danger is perfect for readers looking for: Epic books for tweens and teensDazzling world-building and relatable charactersTween and teen LGBTQ+ booksHigh fantasy with asexual and aromantic representationFiction examining class structuresIntricate fantasy worldbuilding

Review quote

What We Devour has my new favorite magic system. Miller pulls no punches in a stark examination of class structures and the consequences of conflating worth and wealth set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic fantasy world. With a cunning main character and visceral prose that will leave you haunted, this book is a dark delight. - Kalyn Josephson, author of The Storm Crow duology
