An incredible adventure, with magic woven through every page, The Collectors sweeps readers into a hidden world where wishes are stolen and dreams have a price.
Fast-paced, witty, and riveting, this contemporary fantasy adventure begins a two-book series from Jacqueline West, the New York Times-bestselling author of The Books of Elsewhere series.
Van has always been an outsider.
He’s hard of hearing, collects trinkets, and lives with his single mother-an opera singer with a huge personality.
Then one day, Van notices a girl stealing pennies from a fountain, and everything changes. He follows the girl, Pebble, and uncovers an underground world full of wishes and the people who collect them.
Apparently not all wishes are good and even good wishes often have unintended consequences-and the Collectors have made it their duty to protect us. But they aren’t the only ones who have their eyes on the world’s wishes-and they may not be the good guys, after all. <
