... can you tell am a little excited to reveal this?
Anyway, Kate and I revealed this cover on our Twitters about an hour or so ago (Kate is at @Katelovescolour and I'm at @PewterWolf), but we both said we wanted to blog about this cover.
And if you guys haven't guess, I did mention this last week on my His Fair Assassin Mood Board Week. Yes, it's Courting Darkness. And I am quite excited to be involved in the tour as I plan to read the series this year as part of my Year of Blood and Magic and, if you have read this series, there is a lot of blood and murder and assassin nuns! HISTORICAL ASSASSIN NUNS!!!
So I am thrilled and excited to reveal the cover for Courting Darkness and revealing a tad of information about the book!
TA-DAH!!! Doesn't it look pretty and messed-up?! I love the little detail of the sewing needle at the tip of the sword - a subtle hint that the needle is mightier than the sword?
Now, to my knowledge, you can read this without reading the His Fair Assassin trilogy, but forgive me if I am wrong. But let me give you the synopsis of Courting Darkness from Goodreads and let you see for yourselves if this is up your reading alley...
When Sybella accompanies the Duchess of Brittany to France, she expects trouble, but she isn’t expecting a deadly trap. Surrounded by enemies both known and unknown, Sybella searches for the undercover assassins from the convent of St. Mortain who were placed in the French court years ago.
Genevieve has been undercover for so many years, she no longer knows who she is or what she’s supposed to be fighting for. When she discovers a hidden prisoner who may be of importance, she takes matters into her own hands.
As these two worlds collide, the fate of the Duchess, Brittany, and everything Sybella and Genevieve have come to love hangs in the balance.
What do you guys think? You like? This is a little outside my comport zone but am excited to sink my teeth into this soon! Before I end this post, I want to thank Layla at Andersen asking myself and Kate if we wanted to do the cover reveal and for Kate for being awesome. You guys rock!!!
