Tiffany Liao at Henry Holt has acquired, at auction, Lyndall Clipstone‘s debut YA fantasy Lakesedge, plus an untitled sequel, pitched as a gothic romance in the vein of Wintersong meets Naomi Novik’s Uprooted. Violeta Graceling is sent to live at the haunted estate of Rowan Sylvanan, the notorious Monster of Lakesedge, only to be pulled into a romance and a bargain that will have Leta fighting to save the ones she loves—and her soul. Publication of the first book is planned for 2021; Jill Grinberg at Jill Grinberg Literary Management negotiated the deal for North American rights.
