It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: Realm of Ruins by Hannah West + Giveaway (US Only)

Realm-of-Ruins-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for REALM OF RUINS by Hannah West, releasing October 2, 2018 from Holiday House. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Hannah: 

Hi YABC readers! I’m thrilled to introduce you to the cover of Realm of Ruins, a companion novel to Kingdom of Ash and Briars. When Holiday House showed me the first cover sketch, I had no idea they’d even discussed ideas for it yet, and I was totally floored by the intense beauty of it. The colors and imagery mirror the art for Kingdom of Ash and Briars, but this cover comes alive with a dynamic sense of danger as opposed to a more quiet feeling of pure magic and wonder. The artist, Daniel Burgess, is incredibly talented, and I also have to thank Kerry Martin at Holiday House for her creative direction and vision. I hope you love the art as much as I do and that you enjoy getting swept away to Nissera!

~Hannah

About the Book


I was meant to touch the untouchable, destroy the indestructible.

A century after Bristal and Anthony saved the realm in Kingdom of Ash and Briars, their descendant Valory Braiosa attends a training academy for elicromancers, immortal beings with assorted magical gifts. Through a tragic accident, Valory comes to possess a destructive, unruly power and she flees her kingdom. But what she encounters next reveals darker forces at play: a resurrection spell cast by a bitter, lonely prince that awakens a long-dormant evil. As chaos spreads across the realm, Valory meets Mercer Fye, a secretive young man determined to topple the resurrected tyrant. They set out with a bickering band of allies, but the enemy is far more cunning than they imagined, and they must brave plagues, betrayal, and time-bending power struggles to save the soul of the realm.

Weaving together the imaginative world of Nissera with snippets from Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid, Hannah West goes dark and dangerous in this gripping companion to her acclaimed debut.
