About the Author

Rebecca Mix is a fantasy author and Michigander who writes about messy girls and creepy magic. Her debut novel, The Ones We Burn, is a witchy, sapphic dark young adult fantasy. Her work has been featured by BuzzFeed, Tor, Bustle, HuffPost, and more. If you can't find her, she's probably goofing off on social media @MixBecca, or attempting to sneak yet another plant into the house.


"Feral and tender at once. Rebecca Mix has created a world teeming with terrifying magic and ferocious monsters to be saved. The Ones We Burn is a story of strength, and love that is chosen."

--Chloe Gong, New York Times bestselling author of These Violent Delights
"At once familiar and entirely fresh, Rebecca Mix's The Ones We Burn is a stunning fantasy that deftly navigates grief, love, and the powerful necessity of hope. Set in a rich, sweeping world, and penned with prose as brutal as Ranka's blood-magic, you'll find yourself lost in the thoughtful exploration of found family, the whip-smart magic system and the tender, striking sapphic romance. Ranka is the sort of heroine you can't help but root for and Aramis, Galen and Percy will linger long after the final page. I love this book. Rebecca Mix is a writer to watch."

--Adrienne Tooley, author of Sweet & Bitter Magic
"The Ones We Burn is richly woven standalone fantasy that's as beautiful as it is fierce. From its spectacularly crafted world of witches and horrifying monsters, to the most tender character arcs and a fabulous love story, Rebecca Mix has solidified her place as YA fantasy's new auto-buy author."

--Adalyn Grace, New York Times bestselling author of Belladonna
"One of the freshest YA fantasies I've read in years. Every page brims with passion. Ranka, Percy, Galen and Aramis are still vivid in my imagination long after I turned the final page. Fans of diverse YA fantasy - do NOT miss this one."

--Natasha Ngan, New York Times bestselling author of Girls of Paper and Fire

"The Ones We Burn is a fierce story of healing, told with teeth bared. Romantic, brutal, and hopeful, it marks Rebecca Mix as a writer to watch."

--Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf
