Cover of Last Things by Jacqueline West


A new YA novel from Greenwillow/HarperCollins

"Last Things is at once poetic and urgent, evocative and authentic, everything I love in a book.” - Victoria Schwab, author of #1 New York Times bestseller This Savage Song

“I devoured this book in a day. Last Things is the kind of taut, atmospheric thriller that gets your heart racing and sets your imagination on fire. Sensational.”—Claire Legrand, New York Times bestselling author of Furyborn

"Hand this worthy addition to any YA collection to fans of mystery, music, and horror." - School Library Journal

"A suspenseful tale wrought from power chords, creeping darkness, and disquieting twists." - Kirkus

"West uses evocative language, including song lyrics, to enhance the ominous atmosphere in this updated Faustian thriller; her pitch-perfect depiction of music conjures pulse-pounding concerts and Anders’ passion for metal. A dark and lovely saga." - Booklist

"Last Things is more than an homage to a legendary tale. It’s an expert reinvention that stands wholly on its own. And yes, you’ll want to leave the lights on." - Book and Film Globe
