  The truth is, though, that Eleanor and the Spirit-Hunters would never have found HarperCollins if not for Sara Kendall, Joanna Volpe, and Danielle Barthel. Thank you for all your patience, your constant dedication, and your awesome you-ness. I’m so grateful I get to be a part of New Leaf, and I feel so blessed to have you in my court.

  For my anam cara, Sarah J. Maas: Death is only the beginning. And I mean that in the least creepy, most Mummy-reference-way possible. You taught me to tap into my deepest, darkest feelings and pour them onto the page—and my writing has been more powerful and more fulfilling ever since. You’re amazing; this book exists only because of your endless cheerleading through every single daunting chapter; and I love you forever and ever and ever. And then some more.

  I have to extend a gigantic thank-you to Erin Bowman, for always having an ear ready when I need to vent, a shoulder ready when I need to sob (So. Much. Sobbing. During this book), and a hand ready when I needed to get off the floor and keep writing. You’re a neighborhood watch of one.

  For Meredith McCardle: we’ve come a long way in a few years, and I’m so glad we’re on the road together. I’ll have to write another series in Paris so we can tour it again. Or, how do you feel about Venice next time?

  Thank you again to Biljana Likic (and also to Mufei Jiang) for help with the Latin. Who knew an ancient language could be so hard? I’d have been lost without you.

  For Maddie Meylor: You and your family are the coolest bunch of readers a gal could ever meet. I’m so glad we’re friends and that you love the Spirit-Hunters as much as I do. I hereby declare Daniel as your official fictional boyfriend.

  To Kat Zhang, Dan Krokos, Amie Kaufman, Erica O’Rourke, Amity Thompson, Katherine Brauer, Julie Eshbaugh, Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Alex Bracken, and Jodi Meadows—you guys have been the best friends a gal could ever ask for, and I honestly can’t imagine writing a book without you to cheer me on. Thank you for always being there.

  Many thanks to my husband, Sébastien, for his tireless support and hundreds upon hundreds of delicious meals (though if I ever see another zucchini casserole, I might strangle you). This is only the first series, baby, so get ready for an entire future of dinner-based slavery. Oh yeah, and je t’aime.

  For my parents, my brother and sister, and aaaaall of my huge extended family: thank you for always believing in me, always backing me up, and always thinking I’m the best writer in the entire universe (I’m looking at you, Mom and Dad). I’m so lucky to have such a warm, loving family.

  For every librarian, every teacher, and every bookseller who has ever crossed my path (and the ones who have yet to cross it too): you’re the number one reason my books reach young readers. Thank you, thank you for doing what you do and sharing the stories that you love.

  Finally, I want to thank my readers—old and new. Since the first book released two years ago, I have been constantly humbled by all that you do. Your emails, your tweets, your letters, your fan art, your presence at events—everything is downright awe-inspiring. Each time I hear from you, I remember why I write. These books are for you, and I can never thank you enough for your love and support.
