On Our Shelves Now
Recently orphaned, Jane accepts an invitation to a former-tutor’s family island/mansion, Tu Reviens. Jane arrives with all of her possession, the most notable being 37 handmade umbrellas, and discovers a bizarre cast of characters and a lot of strange goings ons. Jane must make a choice who to pursue for answers; Mrs. Vanders, the little girl, Kiran, Ravi, or Jasper? Reminiscent of a choose-your-own-adventure novel, the story splits into five separate narratives from this point, each of a different genre (mystery, thriller, horror, science fiction, and fantasy). Each chapter, building on the previous, takes readers through a variety of plots that weave together art heists, secret government plots, spies, travel through alternate dimensions, talking animals, romance, intrigue, and a sentient house that yearns for a soul.— From Kinsey's Picks
An instant New York Times bestseller--from the award-winning author of the Graceling Realm series--about adventure, grief, storytelling, and finding yourself in a world of seemingly infinite choices. "A wild gift for readers who like books that take them to unexpected places."--Melissa Albert, author of The Hazel Wood Jane has lived a mostly ordinary life, raised by her recently deceased aunt Magnolia, whom she counted on to turn life into an adventure. Without Aunt Magnolia, Jane is lost. So she's easily swept away when a glamorous, capricious, and wealthy acquaintance from years ago asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at the extravagant island mansion called Tu Reviens.
Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." What Jane doesn't know is that the house will offer her five choices that could ultimately determine the course of her life.
One choice leads Jane into a heist mystery. Another takes her into a spy thriller. She finds herself in a gothic horror story, a space opera, and an extraordinary fantasy realm. She might fall in love, she might lose her life, she might come face-to-face with herself. Every choice comes with a price. But together, all the choices will lead her to the truth. One house. Five choices. Limitless possibilities. Read Jane, Unlimited and remember why The New York Times has raved, "Some authors can tell a good story; some can write well. Cashore is one of the rare novelists who do both.
