"The Wicked Woods"
By: C.J. Redwine
Release Date: February 14, 2018
A short story inspired by Red Riding Hood, from bestselling author C.J. Redwine. A thrilling companion story in the Ravenspire series.
Everyone knows the woods are wicked.
Eight years ago, the woods destroyed Rowan Kelly's entire village, forcing her to flee with her grandmother. Since then, Rowan has spent every moment learning all she could about the woods, the monster that lurks within, and the wicked magic that sends the forest hunting for blood.
Now she’s returned home, and this time, she’s the hunter, and the woods are her prey. But the monster at the heart of the woods has no intention of dying, and turning Rowan’s weapons against her is effortless for this ancient foe. To avenge her family’s deaths, Rowan may have to sacrifice the one thing she still has left to lose: her heart.
"The Wicked Woods" is available free exclusively for those who pre-order THE TRAITOR PRINCE by 2/14/18. For a signed, personalized copy of THE TRAITOR PRINCE, along with an additional gift, go to parnassusbooks.net/traitorprin
THE TRAITOR PRINCE:
A dark epic fantasy inspired by The Prince and the Pauper and the fairy tale The False Prince, from bestselling author C.J. Redwine. A thrilling companion book in the Ravenspire series, The Traitor Princeis perfect for fans of A Court of Thorns and Rosesseries and The Wrath and the Dawn duology.
Javan Najafai, crown prince of Akram, has spent the last ten years at an elite boarding school, far away from his kingdom. But his eagerly awaited return home is cut short when a mysterious impostor takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.
After barely escaping the impostor’s assassins, Javan is thrown into Maqbara, the kingdom’s most dangerous prison. The only way to gain an audience with the king—and reveal Javan’s identity—is to fight in Maqbara’s yearly tournament. But winning is much harder than facing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena but also by a band of prisoners allied against him, and even by the warden herself.
The only person who can help him is Sajda, who has been enslaved by Maqbara’s warden since she was a child, and whose guarded demeanor and powerful right hook keep the prisoners in check. Working with Sajda might be the only way Javan can escape alive—but she has dangerous secrets.
Together, Javan and Sajda have to outwit the vicious warden, outfight deadly creatures, and outlast the murderous prisoners intent on killing Javan. If they fail, they’ll be trapped in Maqbara for good—and the secret Sajda’s been hiding will bury them both.
