Editorial Reviews

Review

5 Stars
"...a gripping tale that will appeal to lovers of suspense novels. Betrayal, deceit, scheming, manipulation, and elements... The plot was brilliant and airtight! I never saw the many twists and turns coming." -- Jennifer Ibiam, Reader's Favorite
 
5 Stars
"Josund knows how to spin a fantasy. She takes some of the familiar building blocks and constructs something fresh and different, which will delight steadfast fans and new ones alike. ...Josund has a firm grasp on the heist theme and pulls it off convincingly and entertainingly. ...It's easy to see the parallels between this novel and Cinderella, but this version is a more exciting and mature fairytale for adults. ... If you like leading ladies with attitude and an agenda, you will love Pretty Deadly by Kelsey Josund." -- Tammy Ruggles, Readers' Favorite

5 Stars
"[Cinna] is calculating, patient, and despite her thievery, she remains sympathetic...There is a sort of eat-the-rich attitude to her secret preoccupation." -- Vincent Dublado, Readers' Favorite
 
5 Stars
"...blends romance, intrigue, and action in a delightful story that will build thriller enthusiasts from YA audiences unused to the experience, while attracting adult readers with a special blend of action that revolves around royalty, heists, and a relationship doomed to explode." -- Diane Donovan, Editor, Midwest Book Review

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Kelsey Josund is a software engineer and author of scifi, fantasy and young adult fiction, including a series of forthcoming feminist retellings of classic childhood fairytales.

Originally from Seattle, Kelsey loves getting outdoors and living in places that allow her to escape to the mountains on the weekends. She cares deeply about the ecosystems that humans impact and that impact them in return. Her writing explores these themes through the prism of the traditional coming-of-age arcs of science fiction and fantasy. Kelsey is particularly interested in stories and characters that complicate the traditional and familiar, leading her to rediscover old tales from new and unexpected angles.

With a passion for storytelling in all its forms, Kelsey approaches writing fiction the same way she approaches writing code: she likes to know where it’s going, but wants to figure out the details as she goes. She believes good software is a lot like a good story—full of neat and clever solutions to tricky problems, beautiful at a granular level but also from a distance.

Kelsey lives and works in Silicon Valley, California with her partner and their cat. She holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in computer science from Stanford University, and is currently plotting her return to the Pacific Northwest and working on her next novel.
