a life no one will remember. a story you will never forget.

In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Life After Life, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times bestselling author V. E. Schwab’s genre-defying tour de force.

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever—and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

“For someone damned to be forgettable, Addie LaRue is a most delightfully unforgettable character, and her story is the most joyous evocation of unlikely immortality.”

NEIL GAIMAN

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue will enchant readers as deeply as its heroine’s Faustian bargain; you will find yourself in quick turns both aching with heartbreak, and gleefully crowing at the truly delicious, wicked cleverness in store.”

NAOMI NOVIK

“Perfectly suspended between darkness and light, myth and reality. [This novel] is—ironically—unforgettable.”

ALIX E. HARROW

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is the kind of book you encounter only once in a lifetime.... A defiant, joyous rebellion against time, fate, and even death itself—and a powerful reminder that the only magic great enough to conquer all of it is love.”

PENG SHEPHERD

"Sweeping in its scope yet wonderfully intimate, it's dark and sexy yet romantic and heartbreaking."
