Laura Pohl has revealed the cover and release date for her newest book, The Wicked Remain! The upcoming novel is the second book in Pohl’s Grimrose Girls series, which began with The Grimrose Girls in 2021. Both books are fairy-tale retellings set in a dark academia world. The Wicked Remain is set to release this year on November 1 and is available for pre-order.
Per Barnes & Noble, the synopsis reads:
“At Grimrose Académie, the fairy-tale deaths continue. And unless the curse is broken, one of the girls could be next.
Nani, Yuki, Ella, and Rory have discovered the truth about the curse that’s left a trail of dead bodies at Grimrose. But the four still know nothing of its origins, or how to stop the cycle of doomed fates.
And each girl harbors her own secret. One is learning why she was brought to the school. One struggles to keep her new and deadly power under control. One knows exactly how much time she has left.
And one, trying to escape her dark destiny, will come even closer to fulfilling it.
Can the girls change their own stories and break the curse? Or must one of them die to end it forever?”
The Grimrose Girls introduces Pohl’s quad of Nani, Yuki, Ella, and Rory. After Yuki, Ella, and Rory’s best friend dies under suspicious circumstances, they set out to learn what really happened. When their new roommate, Nani, arrives at the school, the girls are thrust into a series of events where they learn there have been other deaths at the school. And all of them have ties to fairy-tales.
