Robin LaFevers

New York Times best-selling author Robin LaFevers was raised on a steady diet of fairy tales, Bulfinch’s mythology, and 19th century poetry. It is not surprising she grew up to be a hopeless romantic. She also spent a large portion of her life being told she was making up things that weren’t there, which only proves she was destined to write fiction. She is the author of seventeen books for young readers, including the critically acclaimed His Fair Assassin trilogy—GRAVE MERCY, DARK TRIUMPH, and MORTAL HEART which received starred reviews from School Library Journal, Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, and Kirkus. The first book in a new duology set in the His Fair Assassin world, COURTING DARKNESS, will be out in February 2019. She is also the author of the Theodosia and Nathaniel Fludd, Beastologist series.

Though Robin has never trained as an assassin or joined a convent, she has been on a search for answers to life’s mysteries for as long as she can remember. She finds them mostly in books.
