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

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE WISH GRANTER by our very own C.J. Redwine, releasing February 14, 2017 from Balzer + Bray. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from C.J.:

Hi YABCers!

 

I'm SO excited to share the cover for THE WISH GRANTER with you. This book is the next installment in the Ravenspire series, following THE SHADOW QUEEN. Each book is a stand alone story set in an adjoining kingdom and inspired by a different fairy tale. THE WISH GRANTER is the next chapter in Rumpelstiltskin's life after he was exiled from his home kingdom by the miller's daughter. It took my team at Balzer + Bray a long time to figure out the right approach to the cover, but they knocked it out of the park. I'm in love with it, and I hope you are too. 

 

C.J.

 

p.s. All wishes come with a price. ;)

 

Ready to see?

Scroll, YABCers! Scroll!

THE WISH GRANTER (Ravenspire #2)

Release date: February 14, 2017
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
ISBN: 0062360272
 
About the Book

An epic fantasy inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from the New York Times bestselling author ofThe Shadow Queen.


The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of Súndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence that he can’t stop.

Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague, who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.

So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.

But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother...and her soul.

Wow! I am crazy about this cover abd the synopsis! I LOVE retelling and haven't read a single one about Rumpelstiltskin! I own The Shadow Queen(preordered it) and plan to read it closer to the release date of The Wish Granter. I love the idea that they are standalone set in different kingdoms in that world! So excited for this! Thanks for the chance! :)

I love that it looks like actual stitching. It's so real! And as many re-tellings as I've read recently, Rumpelstiltskin is unique, and I can't wait to read it.

It looks real because it is real! My publisher hired an embroidery artist to stitch the entire cover. Isn't that amazing??

Sounds like it's gonna be good!. We'll have to see how well it coordinates with the Shadow Queen cover.

The cover is really pretty, it definitely caught my eye. The story sounds interesting as it's a re-telling of a fairy tale and I have always really enjoyed those.

I haven't read the first book yet, so I'm really excited to maybe have the second also. I tend to wait for finished series books before starting, if I can help it! I love the cover. Very medieval.

I wait on finished series too, which is why this time I'm writing a series of stand alone companion novels. Each book is set in a different kingdom, with different characters, and is inspired by a different fairy tale. So you can read them in any order you'd like! :)

Oh my word the cover is gorgeous!! And there aren't many YA Rumpelstiltskin retellings so it should be fun to see a new take on the story.
