Alex Lidell is the Amazon Breakout Novel Awards finalist author of THE CADET OF TILDOR (Penguin, 2013). She is an avid horseback rider, a (bad) hockey player, and an ice-cream addict. Born in Russia, Alex learned English in elementary school, where a thoughtful librarian placed a copy of Tamora Pierce’s ALANNA in Alex’s hands.

She lives in Washington, DC.

“...You have a problem, de Winter?"

The words left her mouth before her brain filtered them. "Yes, it’s blond, green-eyed, and thinks it’s a god.”
Alex Lidell, The Cadet of Tildor

“As for changing the world, that begins with deciding you can.”
Alex Lidell, The Cadet of Tildor

“So the problem with quints is that they are bloody powerful things, and the sudden influx of magic unfortunately doesn’t come with a sudden influx of brains.”
Alex Lidell, Power of Five
