About the Author
Jasmine Skye is a queer-romantic, gray-ace, bigender fantasy author.

In college, Jasmine studied psychology, anthropology (with a specialization in Native and Indigenous Studies), and writing. S/he earned a Master's in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine's Stonecoast Program. Jasmine has a dog, a cat, and a snake, grew up with horses and chickens, and expects to own a menagerie by the time s/he's fifty. When s/he's not writing, Jasmine works with high schoolers across Texas as a DEI outreach coordinator. Daughter of the Bone Forest is Jasmine's debut novel.

"Part fairy tale, part epic fantasy, and part magic school story, Daughter of the Bone Forest is wholly engrossing. It's a fierce, wild-hearted coming of age story about love, loyalty, and staying true to oneself. I absolutely devoured it." - Nicki Pau Preto, Sunday Times bestselling author of Bonesmith and the Crown of Feathers trilogy

"Daughter of the Bone Forest seamlessly pulls you into a lush and enchanting world, complete with a magical school so immersive that Hogwarts pales in comparison. An exquisitely crafted tale of tender romance, family loyalty, and the crushing inevitability of adulthood--this book sinks its teeth into you and doesn't let go." - Kylie Lee Baker, author of The Keeper of Night

"Daughter of the Bone Forest is an absolute powerhouse of a debut. In Skye's deft prose, a magic school and living landscapes showcase Daughter of the Bone Forest's beautiful heart: a longing to break free from the roles pushed upon us, to protect those we love, and to hold fast to our convictions and ourselves, even in the direst of circumstances. This is a truly special book, one that readers will be sure to love and one that I will be thinking about for a very long time." - Lillie Lainoff, author of One for All

"A captivating, high-stakes fantasy steeped in magic, witches and familiars, set against a backdrop of looming war. I was enthralled from the first page to the last and cannot wait for the sequel!" - Rati Mehrotra, author of Night of the Raven, Dawn of the Dove

"Daughter of the Bone Forest pulled me in from the first chapter and didn't let go until the end--a unique and enthralling magic system, a complicated world asking hard questions with no easy answers, and characters you can't help but root for. I loved it!" - C.L. Clark, award-winning author of The Unbroken

"This is a rich, queernormative fantasy... Give it to teens who love high fantasy and get incredibly invested in series books. It's not to be missed." -- Booklist, starred review

"Richly rendered characters, an inventive magic system, and Rosy and Shaw's sweetly budding and emotionally fraught relationship add verve to this queernormative fantasy adventure." --Publishers Weekly

"Peopled with queer characters representing the breadth of the gender spectrum, this epic hero's journey is at turns touchingly romantic and graphically violent... A robustly imagined, intrinsically queer, and romantic high-fantasy epic." -- Kirkus

This magical school dark fantasy set in a -diverse and queer-normative world will leave readers eager for the next installment." -- School Library Journal
