It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Thief's Cunning by Sarah Ahiers + Giveaway (Intl)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THIEF'S CUNNING by Sarah Ahiers, releasing June 13, 2017 from Harper Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Sarah:

Hi YABC!! I'm Sarah Ahiers, and I'm so excited to be able to share with you the cover for my book THIEF'S CUNNING! TC is a sequel companion to my debut ASSASSIN'S HEART. I love the cover for AH so I was both prepared for an awesome cover for THIEF'S CUNNING but also pretty skeptical that the cover would be better than the ASSASSIN'S HEART cover.

But when I saw it for the first time, I gasped! And then I kind of waved my hands in excitement. Like jazz hands, but not done well. Excitement hands? Hmm. Doesn't quite roll off the tongue.

Anyway! I really hope you'll love the cover for THIEF'S CUNNING as much as I do!

 

~Sarah Ahiers (THIEF'S CUNNING, Harper Teen)

About the Book

Allegra Saldana has always had to look over her shoulder. As the niece of the infamous assassin Lea Saldana, Allegra is used to hiding from people who want her dead. Once the strongest clipper family in the Kingdom of Lovero, the Saldanas—or what’s left of them—are now the most hunted. Their number one enemy is the Da Vias, whose thirst for retaliation is almost two decades in the making.

At least that’s what Lea has told Allegra her whole life, but lately Allegra’s been feeling like things are being kept from her—including her parents’ identity. So when Allegra finally learns the truth—I’m a Da Via—her world crumbles. Feeling betrayed by the people she trusted the most, Allegra turns to Nev, a Traveler boy whose presence makes her feel alive in ways she’s only dreamed of.  But getting caught up in Nev’s world has consequences Allegra never saw coming.

In this dark and enthralling fantasy that fans of Sarah Maas and Leigh Bardugo will devour, one girl must decide whether she’s destined to pay for the wrongs of her family’s past…or if the future is hers for the taking.

Woah, I didn't know that there would be a sequel! I liked Assassin's Heart but definitely wanted to see a sequel following. I'm glad we are getting one! What a great cover, too. I love it.

Thank you for the chance!

AAUUGH, so pretty!! And such a unique idea to use a geode. It complements the cover to Assassin's Heart so beautifully. I hope this turns into a trilogy!

At first glance I wasn't entirely sure if I liked the cover or not because of how dark it is which makes it difficult to see details, however, upon closer inspection I ended up liking it.
As for the synopsis of this book, well, there is no question in my mind that I love it. In fact, I immediately added it to my TBR list.
Thank you very much for offering me a chance to win.
