Frank's latest book, Stolen, will have readers falling down rabbit holes, following yellow brick roads, and meeting mystical and magical creatures. Her story telling is reminiscent of childhood favorites with a twist of strangness and transcends beyond generational gap for readers of all ages.  

What Readers Had to Say. . . 

An utterly enchanting and immersive read. Narnia meets Hunger Games in a story that's hard to put down. Loved it.

Stolen by Marlena Frank was an absolute joy to read! It transported me back to my child, to a world where fairies ride flying bicycles, statues can talk, and has a villain you love to hate! A completely original story that is a breath of fresh air on the YA Fantasy genre!

Holy cow this book was magical! The characters were so well written and I just loved Shaleigh. I really connected with them and the book just drug me in! The world building was fantastic, the plot was amazingly well done, and the writing was magnificent.

It’s difficult taking care of a delusional father by yourself. Sixteen-year-old Shaleigh Mallet would rather explore and photograph dilapidated buildings than cater to her father’s dark episodes. But when she’s kidnapped by a creature who carries her atop a flying bicycle into another world, she realizes this wasn’t the escape she wanted.In a kingdom known as the Garden, where minotaurs pull carriages and parties are held in hot air balloons, Madam Cloom and her faerie servant, Teagan, rule over the land with incredible but terrifying magic.

THE AUTHOR

Name, Title

I write about strange creatures. Typically they shouldn’t exist, or they have bled through from a different reality, or they’re pretending to be a crying baby in a crib. Sometimes that lands my stories in horror and other times in fantasy, but there’s always an air of strangeness to my tales. 

An utterly enchanting and immersive read. Narnia meets Hunger Games in a story that's hard to put down. Loved it.
