About the Author

Tracy Banghart grew up in rural Maryland and spent her summers on a remote island in northern Ontario. All that isolation and lovely scenery gave her the time to read voraciously and the inspiration to write her own stories. Always a bit of a nomad, Tracy now travels the world Army-wife style with her husband, son, and several mischievous fur babies. She wrote Grace and Fury while living in Hawaii.


Praise for Queen of Ruin "The nonstop action of the second installment makes this novel very hard to put down. Each hard-won battle seems destined to fail...The losses are heartrending and incalculable...These women are no simpering ladies; they are warrior queens and proud of it. Refreshing and unique, this novel will find a wide audience among young women."--VOYA
"Banghart threads Viridia's lore and history in her narrative as she brings Serina and Nomi's stories to their fierce, sometimes violent conclusions."--Booklist
"A cathartic, action-packed read about women taking back power."--Elly Blake, New York Times bestselling author of the Frostblood Saga
"Fierce, fun, [and] fast-paced...empowering from start to finish and doesn't flinch in proving that sometimes the life you want isn't the one you expected--and you won't know until you fight for it."--Sarah Henning, author of Sea Witch
"A fierce story of sisterhood and survival. Absolutely riveting. I couldn't help but cheer for these ferocious young women."--Kaitlyn Sage Patterson, author of The Diminished
"Empowerment-flavored brain popcorn."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Grace and Fury "The Handmaid's Tale meets The Bachelor, Grace and Fury is fast-paced, feminist, and a perfect summer read."--Bustle
"The Handmaid's Tale gets a YA twist in this debut.... The pace is quick, the ending promises a sequel, and the plot couldn't be more relevant. Buy an extra copy--this should find an audience."--Booklist
"The timely YA response to The Handmaid's Tale."--Hypable
"Banghart...breathes new life into this feminist story of oppression and resistance. The sisters...shift and grow, adding depth to each character. Fans of Keira Cass and Marie Rutkoski will be drawn to this absorbing story and left eager for another installment."--Publishers Weekly
"Banghart's prose is florid and engaging, and she expands the drama explosively. Fans of The Hunger Games will appreciate the similar plotting in this first installment of a planned trilogy. An easy hand-sell that will find a willing audience in those who have enjoyed Dhonielle Clayton's The Belles and Stephanie Garber's Caraval."--SLJ
"A dystopian YA delight."--Frolic
"If you're looking for a new read to add to your ever-growing list, Grace and Fury is one you shouldn't miss. It's full of suspense, deception, and #girlpower."--Her Campus

"Two sisters fight for freedom in a fantasy novel with a blisteringly fast pace and a cathartic ending."--Kate Elliott, New York Times bestselling author of the Court of Fives series
