If you really love her, you have to trust her.

Nia has met the man she wants to marry. Marcus is kind, clever and handsome, with a beard so dark it is nearly blue-black. Nia demands a single promise from him – that Marcus will never enter her study, her private space. But when Marcus's curiosity begins to mount Nia feels more and more uneasy. Will he betray her? Can he accept that no means no? Can a woman ever have a room of her own? Malorie Blackman brings her unparalleled understanding of human nature to the story of Bluebeard.

What People Are Saying

“As macabre as the original... the same dark, sinister atmosphere overshadows the old, murderous story.” Eithne Farry, Sunday Express

"Blackman’s feminist twists on the lesser-known fairy tale 'Bluebeard' are interesting, and a climactic reveal raises intriguing questions about legacy and violence... Barrett’s delicate, eerie, shadow cutout illustrations are nice additions to the unsettling atmosphere." Kirkus
