Find a gateway to the underworld. Steal a soul out of hell. A simple plan, aside from people who make this particular journey rarely come back. But Galaxy “Alex” Stern is made up our minds to break Darlington out of purgatory―even supposing it costs her a future at Lethe and at Yale.
Forbidden from making an attempt a rescue, Alex and Dawes can’t call on the Ninth House for lend a hand, so they assemble a team of dubious allies to save the gentleman of Lethe. Together, they’ll have to navigate a maze of arcane texts and peculiar artifacts to uncover the societies’ most closely guarded secrets, and break each rule doing it. But when faculty members begin to die off, Alex knows these aren’t just accidents. Something deadly is at work in New Haven, and if she is going to continue to exist, she’ll have to reckon with the monsters of her past and a darkness built into the university’s very walls.
Thick with history and packed with Bardugo’s signature twists, Hell Bent brings to life an intricate world full of magic, violence, and all too real monsters.
