Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for the next book from YABC's own C.J. Redwine. THE BLOOD SPELL releases on February 12, 2019 from Balzer + BrayBefore we get to the reveal, here's a note from C.J.

Hi YABCers!

 
I'm so excited to reveal the next cover in the Ravenspire series of dark epic fantasies inspired by fairy tales! Each cover in the series just keeps getting better, and this is no exception. I'm thrilled with the callback to Disney's iconic Cinderella and equally thrilled with the dark, ominous tones amid the beauty that perfectly capture the heart of the story. I hope you love it too!

~C.J.

THE BLOOD SPELL

By: C.J. Redwine

Release Date: February 12, 2019

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

 ISBN: 0062653016
 
About the Book
Blue de la Cour has her life planned: hide the magic in her blood and continue trying to turn metal into gold so she can help her city’s homeless. But when her father is murdered and a cruel but powerful woman claims custody of Blue and her property, one wrong move could expose her—and doom her once and for all. The only one who can help? The boy she’s loathed since childhood: Prince Kellan.
 
Kellan Renard, crown prince of Balavata, is walking a thin line between political success and devastating violence. Newly returned from boarding school, he must find a bride among the kingdom’s head families and announce his betrothal—but escalating tension among the families makes the search nearly impossible. He’s surprised to discover that the one person who makes him feel like he can breathe is Blue, the girl who once ruined all his best adventures.
 
When mysterious forces lead to disappearances throughout Balavata, Blue and Kellan must work together to find the truth. What they discover will lead them to the darkest reaches of the kingdom, and to the most painful moments of their pasts. When romance is forbidden and evil is rising, can Blue save those she loves, even if it costs her everything?

PS I think this is linked to the wrong giveaway (it says it's for 3 hardcovers of the Iron Codex).

I love the cover for this (and all the other Ravenspire books) - I admit I've only read The Shadow Queen as the other two didn't have synopsis that caught my interest (at the time, I may revisit them in the future), but The Blood Spell's has me all excited and eager to read it (just like The Shadow Queen's synopsis did)! But the cover is beautiful!

I really like the cover, though it is very different than I expected. I was surprised that the background is pale blue as I thought that that color would have been saved for the eventual Snow Queen retelling. Either way, I'm super stoked for the next adventure in this magnificent world!
