World Fantasy Award-winning author C.L. Polk has created a beautifully whimsical book in The Midnight Bargain. In a world where women are policed and robbed of their magic for the sake of bearing children, protagonist Beatrice decides to write her own fate through the use of forbidden magic. But along the way, she finds both unexpected love and friendship through the beautiful and mysterious Lavan siblings.
Part of The Midnight Bargain‘s charm lies not only in its refreshing take on classic fantasy tropes, but the important social commentary it makes on the ways magic can be a tool of oppression — or a vehicle of empowerment.
