Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for ONCE A KING by Erin Summerill, releasing December 4, 2018 from HMH Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Erin: 

Hi YABC Readers!

I can't believe my third book is coming out! It's a dream come true. It's also a bit surreal, because not so long ago, I was writing everyday with a hope in the back of my mind of getting published. So for all you dreamers out there, keep dreaming. Keep moving forward. Don't stray from the path. 

Now for you readers, I'm thrilled to share this book because it is a stand-alone set in the world of Ever The Hunted and Ever the Brave. Reading those two books isn't required to start ONCE A KING!

But if you have read my first two books, you'll love the familiar world and some familiar faces. 

I hope you enjoy this book! 

Erin

About the Book
Since before King Aodren was born, Channelers—women with a magical ability—have been persecuted in Malam. Now Aodren wants to end the bloody divide and unite his kingdom. But decades of hatred can't be overcome by issuing decrees, and rumors of a deadly Channeler-made substance are making things worse. When Lirra, a Channeler from a neighboring country, offers to help him discover the truth behind the rumors, Aodren begins to see a way forward for his people. But only if he can rewrite the mistakes of the past before it's too late. Return to the world of Ever the Hunted in this high-stakes spin-off novel full of intrigue, romance, betrayal, and revenge.

This cover is so intreaguing! The "perfume" bottle with the trickle of purple has so many options of what it could be that, added to the synopsis of the book with a mysterious clue as "a deadly Channeler-made substance" it makes it all the more interesting!!
