About the Author

Hi, I’m Alexandra Christo, a British author whose characters are always funnier and far more deadly than I am. My books are mostly YA, mostly fantasy, and mostly show that I let my imagination run a little too wild.

My debut novel TO KILL A KINGDOM is a standalone fantasy about deadly siren cursed into humanity and the siren-hunting prince who unwittingly teams up with her to kill the Sea Queen. If you like Disney’s Little Mermaid, I hope I haven’t destroyed your childhood memories of it.

My second book INTO THE CROOKED PLACE is the first in a fantasy duology about four murderous black magic dealers who have to reluctantly save the world, after discovering the plot behind their Kingpin’s dangerous new magic. The sequel, CITY OF SPELLS is out now.

My next book PRINCESS OF SOULS is a standalone Rapunzel-inspired YA fantasy romance about a teen witch groomed to steal souls for an immortal king and the reckless, rebellious boy to whom her fate is tied. Clearly I have a thing for twisted fairytales. It’s out 11 October 2022 and you can pre-order now!

My books have been translated into over a dozen languages worldwide.
