About the Author

Alexandra Christo, author of To Kill a Kingdom and Into the Crooked Place, decided to write books when she was four and her teacher told her she couldn't be a fairy. When she's not busy making up stories, she can be found organizing food crawls over London and binge-watching Korean dramas. Alexandra has a BA in Creative Writing and currently lives in England with an abundance of cacti (because they're the only plants she can keep alive).

Reviews

For Into the Crooked Place:

With its gangland details, creative magical caste system and surprisingly brutal characters, Into the Crooked Place is very much its own thing. And that thing will likely be a story you can't put down. --Culturess

Christo offers the reader creative and thoughtful backstories for each protagonist, along with fully realized worlds rife with magic...Everywhere are people of color and acknowledgment of LGBTQ characters--nice touches not always seen in fantasy. -Booklist

Christo has done an amazing amount of worldbuilding with this book, creating magic and lore I have never heard of before. The way her characters use magic, the mythology of each of her characters within their backstories, and the timing with which these backstories are revealed - pure magic, pun intended! --MuggleNet


If you're looking for a story of angsty teens with the world's biggest chips on their shoulders, look no further! ... It's a gangster heist story dealing with a lot of heavy themes, but I think everyone will find something to love in this story.... It's a wonderful read with awesome characters.--
