Midnight launch parties are back! Holly Black celebrated the publication of her new YA novel with a midnight release party for The Prisoner’s Throne, the sequel to The Stolen Heir and the latest book in her Elfhame universe. Books of Wonder in New York City hosted Black and fans on March 4 for an evening full of activities including trivia, photo ops, a cosplay contest, and a conversation with Black. Attendees all went home with signed copies of the book and swag bags.
