The Ninth House, Leigh Bardugo
Ninth House follows the main character, Alex Stern, after she arrives in New Haven to monitor the eight secret societies of Yale University, which delve deeply into the occult to which they owe their successes. Meanwhile, she investigates a gruesome death on campus and the mystery of her missing mentor, Darlington, while struggling to adapt to the elite Ivy League world that she's indebted to. It's a beautiful and intriguing mix of mystery, horror, and romance that kept me turning the page. Learn more about the novel and where you can purchase your copy on Bardugo's website.
