Surviving a few weeks at the world's most lethal boarding school was one thing. But now comes the real test: Can November Adley find her missing father before her enemies find her? Subterfuge is the name of the game in this thrilling sequel to Killing November, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Hang a Witch.

After surviving a crash course in espionage at the mysterious Academy Absconditi, November has only one purpose: finding her missing father. Along with fellow student (and heartthrob) Ash, November follows the clues that her father left, embarking on the deadliest treasure hunt of her life. The first clue is in her hometown, where old friends beckon and unexpected enemies lurk around every corner. The second clue is in Europe, where revelations about her family's history will plunge her into an international web of deception, lies, and intrigue. The third clue is deep in enemy territory, surrounded by the most skilled assassins and master strategists, and where everyone wants her and her father dead. Can one girl with limited training infiltrate a centuries-old organization that is powerful enough to topple empires? November only knows that she'll do whatever it takes to save her father . . . or die trying. 

About Book 1:
Title: KILLING NOVEMBER (Killing November #1)
Author: Adriana Mather
Pub. Date: March 26, 2019
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Formats: Paperback, eBook, audiobook
Pages: 368

It’s a school completely off the grid, hidden by dense forest and surrounded by traps. There’s no electricity, no internet, and an eye-for-an-eye punishment system. Classes include everything from Knife-Throwing and Poisons to the Art of Deception and Historical Analysis. And all of the students are children of the world’s most elite strategists—training to become assassins, counselors, spies, and master impersonators. Into this world walks November Adley, who quickly discovers that friends are few in a school where personal revelations are discouraged and competition is everything. When another student is murdered, all eyes turn to November, who must figure out exactly how she fits into the school’s bizarre strategy games before she is found guilty of the crime…or becomes the killer’s next victim.

Praise for Killing November:

“Adriana Mather deftly combines cinematic action, relatable characters, and wicked twists in this riveting boarding school thriller.” — Karen M. McManus, New York Times bestselling author of One of Us is Lying

“Mather has built a dark, intriguing universe. Between the boarding-school setting, the lessons in espionage, and the murder mystery, there’s plenty to grab readers.” —Booklist

“Subterfuge is the name of the game at an elite and secretive prep school. Revelations are well-paced . . . . Anything is possible in this world of cloaks and daggers. A strong beginning that will leave readers hungry for more.” —Kirkus

Who inspires you the most?
In terms of writing – my husband James Bird. He, too, is an author (totally copied me!) and a screenwriter, but most importantly he is the most imaginative and generous human I know. He will not only endlessly talk out my book ideas with me, but he gets excited about them and challenges me to make them better. Plus he’s a giant weirdo with a silly sense of humor who loves love and makes my days so much brighter!

What does your writing space look like?
I would love to say my fancy antique desk with the old candlesticks and dried flowers, but that would be a lie. My writing space is a couch (or bed) with cats draped across my lap and coffee balancing precariously on the cushion next to me, while dressed in black pajamas (otherwise how would I be able to decorate myself properly with cat hair??) 

What is a must have when writing? 
Fun. Many people have said this, but if you’re not having fun, neither will your readers. And while writing is lots of work, it’s also a joy ride. And I know that if I bring a good attitude to my chair (or couch), my book will be that much better. 

Who is your favorite author?

Forgive me, but I’m bad at the favorites questions. For some reason, I always think that if I pick one, the other lovely books will feel underappreciated (I felt the exact same way about my stuffed animals when I was a kid). 

About Adriana:
