Upper Middle Grade Fantasy


A witch has come to the city of Bryre. She travels in a hut that has chicken feet, and is ravenous for children. And once she gets what she desires, she never lets it go.

But when the witch captures Hans, Greta’s little brother, Greta refuses to let her have him. The two strike up a bargain. Greta will retrieve something the witch desires in exchange for her brother’s freedom.

To get the prize Greta must travel to Belladoma—a city where she was once held captive—which brings back terrible memories. With the help of a new friend, Dalen, a magical half-boy and half-horse, Greta embarks on the journey and tries to overcome both foes and her own weaknesses.

For fans of Monstrous and new readers alike comes the story of an epic quest and a heroine who will stop at nothing to save the one she loves most.

Praise for RAVENOUS

“A fantastical adventure fortified by its flawed heroine.”


"Fans of the first installment will seek out this adventure-filled fairy tale."

School Library Journal

"It’s nice that Greta’s sort of a mess—she flares up at the wrong times, she alienates would-be allies on occasion, and she’s just plain grumpy. Even with her flaws, her fierce dedication to her brother is admirable, and her slow transformation into a more accepting, open person is all the more satisfying given her earlier closed views."

Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

"With vials of potions, clues in a book of fairy tales, and a hungry sea monster, there is magic to behold on these fast-paced pages. Within this creative realm, Connolly compassionately explores human emotions as Greta grapples with a newly discovered lineage. A welcome return to a complex land of fantasy and friendship."
