"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
A Sunday Times-bestselling, award-nominated genre-defying tour-de-force of Faustian bargains, for fans of The Time Traveler's Wife and Life After Life, and The Sudden Appearance of Hope.
When Addie La Rue makes a pact with the devil, she trades her soul for immortality. But there's always a price - the devil takes away her place in the world, cursing her to be forgotten by everyone.
Addie flees her tiny home town in 18th-Century France, beginning a journey that takes her across the world, learning to live a life where no one remembers her and everything she owns is lost and broken. Existing only as a muse for artists throughout history, she learns to fall in love anew every single day.
Her only companion on this journey is her dark devil with hypnotic green eyes, who visits her each year on the anniversary of their deal. Alone in the world, Addie has no choice but to confront him, to understand him, maybe to beat him.
Until one day, in a second hand bookshop in Manhattan, Addie meets someone who remembers her. Suddenly thrust back into a real, normal life, Addie realises she can't escape her fate forever.
"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, author of American Gods and winner of multiple Nebula, Hugo, and Locus Awards
"Victoria Schwab sends you whirling through a dizzying kaleidoscopic adventure through centuries filled with love, loss, art and war all the while dazzling your senses with hundreds of tiny magical moments along the way. 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, Nebula and Locus Award-winning author of Spinning Silver
"Addie LaRue is a book perfectly suspended between darkness and light, myth and reality. [This novel] is ironically unforgettable." --Hugo Award winner Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January
"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, author of The Book of M
"Sweeping in its scope yet wonderfully intimate, it's dark and sexy yet romantic and heartbreaking." --Rebecca Roanhorse, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Black Sun
"There are twists aplenty young Henry has secrets of his own but what we take from this beautiful, sweet and utterly engaging story is a message of love and hope." --Daily Mail
"Fantasy star Schwab pulls out all the stops." --i, '75 of the best new books for Autumn'
"'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by way of Wes Anderson - and you won t forget Addie after reading it." --SFX
"A knockout." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"A beautiful, meditative novel with an ending that hit me right in the heart." --Buzzfeed, Best Fall Fantasy 2020
"Deeply romantic, impossibly detailed." --Booklist, Starred Review
"Schwab s writing is warm and intense, and the passages set in the past often make you feel as if you re reading by candlelight... The book is an elegant comment on the erasure of women from recorded history, but not a pointed one; you never feel that Addie LaRue is a metaphor. She is a woman fighting literally to be seen while bearing witness to her own life, and I rooted for her throughout." --New York Times
"Rich and satisfying." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
