THE SHADOW QUEEN by C.J. Redwine: Map Reveal, Pre-order Campaign, & Giveaway (International)

THE SHADOW QUEEN by C.J. Redwine: Map Reveal, Pre-order Campaign, & Giveaway (International)

Today we're excited to kick off the pre-order campaign for C.J. Redwine's highly anticipated THE SHADOW QUEEN (hits shelves 2/16/16)! If you love your fairy tales dark and dangerous, this one is for you. 

First, a note from C.J.

 

Hi YABCers!

I'm thrilled to announce that I've partnered with my local indie bookstore to give readers the opportunity to get signed, personalized copies of THE SHADOW QUEEN the week it launches! I grew up on Grimm's fairy tales, and my love of magic, dragons, and princesses who dare impossible things runs deep. When the idea for THE SHADOW QUEEN, which is a dark epic fantasy inspired by the Snow White story, hit me, I knew I had to run with it. But make no mistake ... this is not the Snow White we've seen in movies. While I honored the elements in the original tale, my princess doesn't wait around to be rescued. She's too busy rescuing her entire kingdom.  And my prince doesn't happen upon some random corpse-like girl in the woods and fall madly in love. He's got a kingdom of his own to save, and he's made a deal with the devil to do it. 

So take a look at that (HOLY CATS!) gorgeous cover and the equally stunning map. Check out the synopsis and the link to the pre-order page at Parnassus (hint: there might be a gift in it for you!). And be sure to enter the epic giveaway at the bottom of the page!

xoxo,

C.J.

A dark epic fantasy inspired by the tale of Snow White, from C. J. Redwine, the author of the Defiance series. Perfect for fans of A Court of Thorns and Roses and Cinder.

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She'll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol's father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic of his own—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman—and bring her Lorelai's heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn't going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.
