About the Book

In a highly anticipated prequel to the Books of Pellinor, Alison Croggon captivates fans old and new with her ancient, legendary world of Annar.

After being seduced into sorcery by an agent of the Dark, the promising Bard Cadvan of Lirigon recklessly unleashed the terrible Bone Queen, bringing destruction down upon Annar. Cast out of the Schools of Barding for his crime, Cadvan now lives in exile, burdened by memories of his dealings with the Dark. At his former home, Cadvan’s mentor, Nelac, and his rival, Dernhil, begin to suspect that the Bone Queen may yet lurk in Annar, and a young Bard named Selmana is plagued by an ominous presence and an unsettling new ability to step between worlds. With darkness gathering and Bards giving in to fear and paranoia, a guilt-ridden Cadvan must once again earn the Bards’ trust and Selmana must gain control of her newfound powers if they are to bring peace to the living and the dead. Fans of the Books of Pellinor will savor this glimpse into Cadvan’s past, and readers new to Alison Croggon’s intricately built world will relish The Bone Queen as a stand-alone epic of light, dark, magic, and redemption.

I love high fantasy so I'm totally into the description. The cover is kind of retro and a bit simple but I like it!

I think the cover is super simple, and so pretty because of its simplicity. The synopsis sounds really good, and certainly makes me curious about the other books this author has ?

I love the cover. It is daring to have a red cover and I like that the cover artist used simple sketch drawings rather than usingva model or going too gothic.
The synopsis has me interested in reading and reviewing this book on my blog.

Love the cover and the premise sounds promising. I haven't heard of the series so this prequel might be the best place to start up the series.

The cover is very much my style in terms of what entices me into picking up a book and considering buying/reading it. The synopsis just made me want to read this even more! Definitely on my to-read list for this summer now!
