About the Author

Heather Walter is a native Southerner who hates the heat. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, she is a former English teacher and a current librarian. Perhaps it is because she's surrounded by stories that she began writing them. At any given moment, you can find her plotting. This is her first novel.


"The villain takes center stage in Walter's superlative debut, a refreshing spin on Sleeping Beauty. . . . Fairy tale lovers of all ages will be thrilled."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A truly original and clever retelling of a classic that had me racing to the end--you'll never look at 'Sleeping Beauty' the same way again."--S. A. Chakraborty, author of the bestselling Daevabad trilogy

"Absolutely dazzling! Full of love, power, and betrayal, Malice is as compelling as a spell, as captivating as an enchantment, and as fascinating and delicious as a fairy-tale curse. I loved it!"--Sarah Beth Durst, award-winning author of the Queens of Renthia series

"Malice is the dark and wicked heart of a fairy tale carved into a book. This story is beautiful, vicious magic."--Tasha Suri, author of Empire of Sand

"A beautifully imaginative and feminist retelling of a fairy tale so often swept into the dark . . . Walter's debut was engrossing from page one, with a striking cast of characters, thrilling romance, and a world so vivid it will wrap thorns around your dreams."--Roshani Chokshi, author of The Gilded Wolves

"I spent a lot of late nights getting lost in this world of sorcery, intrigue, and--of course--true love. I'm sure I won't be the only one!"--Richelle Mead, internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy

"Lively characters, a tempting sapphic romance, and a richly built world make this a book to savor."--Louisa Morgan, author of A Secret History of Witches
