From critically-acclaimed author Sarah Porter comes Never-Contented Things: a standalone surreal young adult fantasy of teenagers ensorcelled into a wicked bargain with otherworldly beings…
Every moment of the night―
Forever changing places―
And they put out the star-light
With the breath from their pale faces…
―Edgar Allan Poe, “Fairy-Land”
Bound by haunting tragedies, Ksenia Adderley and Joshua Korensky have shared a home as foster siblings since they were children. Despite their opposite personalities―Ksenia is prickly, mistrustful, Josh, flamboyant and outgoing―they are fiercely protective of one another. As teens, they’ve grown even closer. Some say unnaturally so.
With Ksenia’s eighteenth birthday approaching, their guardians expect her to move out. They want to free Josh of his obsession with the foster-sister whom they regard as a strange, unhealthy influence. But they don’t understand the depths of Josh’s feelings for Ksenia and how desperate he is to ensure they stay together―forever.
The one called Prince understands all too well. Attracted by the intensity of Josh’s desires and Ksenia’s fears, he can grant them a home among his kind: beautiful creatures not of this earth. All they have to do is surrender their very humanity and succumb to the cruel whims of Prince and his fae courtiers…
“A creepy new world like none I’ve seen before. Eerie, edgy and filled with mystery, Porter takes us to the depths of the magical and psychological.”―Danielle Paige, New York Times bestselling author of Dorothy Must Die
From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Ksenia is cold where foster brother Josh is warm; sharp where he is soft. She is almost eighteen and their foster parents are simultaneously planning for Ksenia’s transition to a group home while preparing to adopt sixteen-year-old Josh. Ksenia is a bit of an oddity in their painfully conventional town with her androgynous looks and thrift store style without any of Josh’s charisma to smooth things over. While Ksenia is resigned to their separation, Josh is desperate to hang on to Ksenia at any cost—even if it means making an impossible bargain with otherworldy creatures they encounter at a party. Entrapped in another world with Josh, Ksenia is determined to protect him despite his betrayal. Josh sees it as a refuge where no one can question his romantic love for his foster sister while Ksenia knows it is a prison with no possible escape. Josh and Ksenia are people no one would look for except for their best friend, Lexi, a girl whose life couldn’t be more different and who, if she can find them, might have the key to breaking the spell. Porter blends horror and urban fantasy in her latest novel of faerie. Evocative, phantasmagorical prose carries across multiple viewpoints as Ksenia works to save herself and the people she loves, in this book filled with messy characters doing the best they can. VERDICT Gorgeous sentence-level writing and vibrant horror elevate this character-driven story about resilience, identity, and learning to save yourself.-Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public Library
