One girl must uncover secrets of the past to save her friend from a terrible curse in this dark and mesmerizing story of love, revenge, and redemption inspired by the myth of Medusa.

Milla knows two things to be true: Demons are real, and fear will keep her safe.

Milla’s whole world is her family’s farm. She is never allowed to travel to the village and her only friend is her beloved older brother, Niklas. When a bright-eyed girl named Iris comes to stay, Milla hopes her loneliness might finally be coming to an end. But Iris has a secret she’s forbidden to share: The village is cursed by a demon who possesses girls at random, and the townspeople live in terror of who it will come for next.

Now, it seems, the demon has come for Iris. When Iris is captured and imprisoned with other possessed girls, Milla leaves home to rescue her and break the curse forever. Her only company on the journey is a terrible new secret of her own: Milla is changing, too, and may soon be a demon herself.

Suspenseful and vividly imagined, The Cold Is in Her Bones is a novel about the dark, reverberating power of pain, the yearning to be seen and understood, and the fragile optimism of love. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “A dark and enchanting tale about friendship, pain, revenge, and the power of love, The Cold Is in Her Bones is the perfect read for Greek mythology fans and YA readers alike.”

    Bustle

  • “A dark atmospheric fantasy debut…Achingly poetic.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Candace Thaxton conjures up a world both familiar and hauntingly foreign in this adaptation of the Medusa myth…Thaxton’s expert narration creates a feeling of timelessness, and the contemporary setting doesn’t clash with the fantasy aspects of the story. Her portrayal of Milla is by turns wistful, sardonic, and firm in her resolve. She gives distinct voices to a largely female cast, including a deliciously shivery reptilian tone for the demon girls. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
