Join us for what promises to be a brilliant evening with bestselling author Leigh Bardugo, as we celebrate the publication of her spellbinding new novel The Familiar.

From the Sunday Times bestselling author comes a bewitching novel, brimming with peril in a world where a woman’s ambition can prove deadly.

In a shabby house in the new capital of Madrid, Luzia Cotado uses scraps of magic to get through her days of endless toil. But when her scheming mistress discovers her scullion is hiding a talent for little miracles, she demands Luzia use those gifts to win over the royal court.

Determined to seize this chance to better her fortunes, Luzia plunges into a world of power-hungry nobility, desperate kings, holy men and seers, where the lines between magic, science and fraud blur. With the pyres of the Inquisition burning, she must use every bit of her wit and resilience to win fame and hide the truth of her ancestry – even if that means enlisting the help of an embittered immortal familiar, whose own secrets could cost her everything. 

Leigh Bardugo is the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of Ninth House and Hell Bent, and the creator of the Grishaverse (now a Netflix original series), which spans the Shadow and Bone trilogy, the Six of Crows duology, the King of Scars duology and much more. Her short  fiction has appeared in multiple anthologies including The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy. She lives in Los Angeles and is an associate fellow of Pauli Murray College at Yale University.

The Book & Ticket bundle will include the Waterstones Exclusive Edition of The Familiar for collection on the evening. Only available while stocks last.

Leigh Bardugo will have a signing line immediately following the event. She will sign any one book per person. Please note that this is signing only, there will be no personalisations. A bookseller will be on hand to assist with taking candid photos upon request; there won’t be an opportunity for posed photos.
