Shelby Mahurin grew up on a small farm in rural Indiana, where sticks became wands and cows became dragons. Her rampant imagination didn't fade with age, so she continues to play make-believe every day-with words now instead of cows. When not writing, Shelby watches The Office and reads voraciously. She still lives near that childhood farm with her very tall husband and semiferal children. Serpent & Dove is her debut novel. Visit her online at www.shelbymahurin.com.
"A detailed supporting cast and a rich, French-inspired world make
for a strong backdrop, but the core of this fantasy is Lou and
Reid's complicated, often steamy romance." -- Booklist
"Drips with intrigue and shadow." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A brilliant debut, full of everything I love: a sparkling and fully-realized heroine, an intricate and deadly system of magic, and a searing romance that kept me reading long into the night. Serpent & Dove is an absolute gem of a book." -- Sarah J Maas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Court of Thorns and Roses series
"Will cast a spell on romance fans." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Mahurin has taken the witch and witch hunter trope and made it new again. The world-building will draw in readers and Lou's strong but wistful nature will keep them turning pages." -- School Library Journal
