A thrillingly evocative and daring tale of wild adventure, secret sisterhood, and the power of myths and storytelling
Silverthorne is a place of secrets and stories. A forest full of twisting paths and tangled thorns. A castle with locked towers and murmurs of tragedy. A village trapped between terrors known and whispered. And something is stirring in the leaves . . .

Saffy is a good girl, tired of being told to stick to the forest paths, and always follow the rules. Aurelia is a hidden girl, locked in a castle tower, dreaming of escaping the fate she's told awaits her. Wild Rose is a fierce girl, raised by wolves, full of spells and fearlessness and cunning.

Together, they will change Silverthorne forever.

Reviews for Wilder than Midnight

An absolutely enchanting tale. I love how Cerrie has reimagined familiar fairytales with fresh wonder and woven them together with starlight, wildness, and an inspiring band of feisty heroines! I adored it. I'm sure readers are going to devour it. * Tamzin Merchant, author of The Hatmakers * Wildly exciting and wickedly whimsical, this fairytale conjures the purest magic there is: true love. Love for each and every one of us, because of our differences, not in-spite of them. It's a story as warming and as delicious as stolen porridge. * Hana Tooke, author of The Unadoptables * A wild, lyrical tale with echoes of much-loved storybook heroines, Cerrie Burnell's Wilder than Midnight is a feast for the senses. It's a book about love and friendship and driving your own destiny in the face of prejudice. But mostly, it's a story of girls, glorious girls, in all their feisty, feminine brilliance. * Nizrana Farook, author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant * One of the most delightful stories I've read in years. Gorgeously cosy and as heart-warming as sticky-sweet porridge, Burnell's writing sparkles like starlight, guiding you through a forest tangled with fairy tales with a shining beam of hope. It's a beautiful celebration of how our differences make us special. * Maria Kuzniar, author of The Ship of Shadows *
