It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Traitor Prince by C.J. Redwine + Giveaway (Intl)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE TRAITOR PRINCE by C.J. Redwine, releasing February 13, 2018 from Balzer + Bray. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from C.J.:

 Hi YABCers!

I'm thrilled to be revealing the cover for the third book in my series of dark epic fantasy companion novels inspired by fairy tales. THE TRAITOR PRINCE was inspired by an old Arabian tale called The False Prince, along with the more well-known story of The Prince and the Pauper. My publisher has given me two amazing covers (The Shadow Queen and The Wish Granter), so I was on pins and needles to see what design they'd come up with this time. As usual, I'm blown away by their incredible talent and vision! I hope you love this cover as much as I do. 

xoxo

C.J.

THE TRAITOR PRINCE

By: C.J. Redwine
Release date: February 13, 2018
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
ISBN: 9780062652982
 
About the Book

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 imposter takes his place—and no one believes Javan is the true prince.

After barely escaping the imposter’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 acing competitions at school, and soon Javan finds himself beset not just by the terrifying creatures in the arena, but also a band of prisoners allied against him, and even 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 the 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.

I love the cover, though it's purple so it's not that hard to imagine that I would love it. The description sounds amazing and intense and I cannot wait to get my hands on this book!

Okay, serious cover love here! ?❤❤❤❤ I love retellings and C.J. Redwine really knocks them out of the park. Are there loads of retellings out there...? Oh, definitely. But she puts a spin on them that truly stands out from the rest.

Can't wait for this release!

I love the cover! I'm a sucker for royal imagery. The story sounds good too. I love the idea of a story based on The Prince and the Pauper.
