Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Crown Of Oblivion by Julie Eshbaugh,

releasing November 2019 from HarperTeen!




Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:



Hi YABCers! Welcome to the exclusive cover reveal for CROWN OF OBLIVION!

I’m so excited to share this cover with you! It’s quite special to me, because it’s my first US cover to show one of my characters. When I first saw this image, it startled me. It was an intense moment, to look into Astrid’s face. (Even typing this, I’m getting choked up about it!) I love the way the illustrator captured her fierceness. I’m not going to lie—it’s scary to see how an artist interprets your character, but this portrays Astrid perfectly. She is an amazing young woman, and I can’t wait for you all to get to know her better!


"All my thanks to art director Joel Tippie and artist Jason Chan."

~ Julie Eshbaugh (CROWN OF OBLIVION, HarperTeen) ~

Crown Of Oblivion
By: Julie Eshbaugh

Release date: November 2019

Publisher: Harper Teen




About the Book

As the surrogate to Princess Renya, Astrid lives amongst royalty. Her life, however, is far from privileged. If Renya steps out of line, Astrid is the one who gets whipped. It’s a nightmare, but Astrid has no choice—she and her family are Outsiders, the lowest class of people, without magic or citizenship.

The only way out is to compete in the deadly Race of Oblivion. First, racers are dosed with the drug Oblivion which wipes their memories. Then they awake in the middle of nowhere with a slip of paper containing the race’s first clue. Whoever finds the clues first and crosses the finish line wins. That’s the only rule—racers have killed each other in pursuit of the next clue, and the punishing terrain kills even more of them. For Astrid, competing could mean death. But winning could mean freedom.
