Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THROUGH THE WHITE WOOD by Jessica Leake, releasing on April 9, 2019 from Harper TeenBefore we get to the reveal, here's a note from Jessica

Hi YABC readers! I'm so excited to be sharing the cover of Through the White Wood with you. My name is Jessica Leake, and I'm the author of Beyond a Darkened Shore and Through the White Wood. Although it's not a sequel to Beyond a Darkened Shore, the two main characters (Ciara and Leif) from Beyond make an appearance in Through the White Wood, and I think you'll see that the covers complement each other extremely well--I can't wait to see them side-by-side on my shelf, and I hope you feel the same! This is a story that takes place in a little-known period of Russian history: the 11th century, when the country was new and creatures of folklore and legend still roamed the world. I wanted the cover to reflect the snow-capped forests of a cold and beautiful world, and I think the cover designer at HarperTeen (Michelle, the same person who designed Beyond!) did an incredible job. I hope you love it as much as I do!

About the Book

Katya’s power to freeze anything she touches has made her an outcast in her isolated village. And when she loses control of her ability, accidentally killing several villagers, she is banished to the palace of the terrifying Prince Sasha in Kiev. 

At the castle, though, she is surprised to find that Sasha is just like her—with his own strange talent, the ability to summon fire. Instead of punishment, Sasha offers Katya friendship, and the chance to embrace her power rather than fear it. 

But outside the walls of Kiev, Sasha’s enemies have organized their own army of people who can control the very earth. Bent on taking over the entire world, they won’t stop until they’ve destroyed everything. 

Katya and Sasha are desperate to stop the encroaching army, and together their powers are a fearsome weapon. But as their enemies draw nearer, leaving destruction in their wake, will fire and frost be enough to save the world? Or will they lose everything they hold dear?
