Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for

Return of the Vengeful Queen (C.J. Redwine),

Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from C.J. Redwine:

Hi YABCers!

I’m so excited to reveal the cover for Return of the Vengeful Queen, the sequel to this year’s Rise of the Vicious Princess. As a sequel, this story deals with the aftermath of betrayal, invasion, monsters, and loss, while also being a fast-paced, action-packed adventure that takes place on the sea for much of the book. The cover needed to encompass the haunting sense of encroaching darkness while also signaling a sea-bound adventure, and the team at Balzer+Bray really nailed it. I love, love, LOVE this cover so much, and I hope you do too!

Ready to see?

Scroll, YABCers! Scroll!

Here it is!

About the Book: Return of the Vengeful Queen

Charis Willowthorn is a queen without a throne. A Rakuuna invader holds Charis’s kingdom of Calera captive, leaving Charis desperate–and ruthlessly committed to vengeance. But with her allies reluctant to intervene, and her enemies hunting her across the open sea, Charis is left with one choice: forge a temporary alliance with Tal Penbyrn, the boy who betrayed her– and at all costs, keep him out of her heart.

Tal is imprisoned, both by the Rakuuna’s isolated castle and the weight of his guilt. Though he once betrayed his love, he knows that he can help turn the tide in Charis’s favor, if only he can regain her trust. But the Rakuuna have an ally of their own–one who knows Charis’s every move and will stop at nothing to see her destroyed.

With threats closing in and every allegiance in doubt, Charis must be stronger, faster, and more vicious than her enemies to reclaim her kingdom–and her future
