DEFY THE DARK

DEFY THE DARK is an all-new anthology edited by me, Saundra Mitchell. It features 17 stories by critically-acclaimed and bestselling YA authors– and one brand new one– as they explore things that can only happen in the dark.

KIRKUS REVIEWS SAYS…

“Each uniquely eerie, goose bump–raising tale confidently journeys into the unknown… [t]his thick volume should conjure the heebie-jeebies for even the most experienced of supernatural connoisseurs.”

BOOKLIST SAYS…

“This spirited collection counts on the bewitching, tantalizing qualities of darkness—at night, down a mineshaft, or artificially manufactured in a spaceship—to set the stage for 17 original short stories.”

ROMANTIC TIMES SAYS…

“Readers who relish such compilations will take pleasure in this anthology. … [T]here will be something to satisfy every kind of paranormal fan.”


After an amazing search on Figment for a new author, we’re excited to announce the final author who will appear in the anthology alongside Beth Revis, Carrie Ryan, Malinda Lo, Rachel Hawkins, Aprilynne Pike: introducing Kate Espey with The Sunflower Murders.
