Good morning, friends! I have something exciting to share with you guys today! As some of you may know, the fabulous Claire Legrand has a new book called Winterspell coming out in September. For those of you who don’t know about it here is the blurb of awesome:
The clock chimes midnight, a curse breaks, and a girl meets a prince . . . but what follows is not all sweetness and sugarplums.
New York City, 1899. Clara Stole, the mayor’s ever-proper daughter, leads a double life. Since her mother’s murder, she has secretly trained in self-defense with the mysterious Drosselmeyer.
Then, on Christmas Eve, disaster strikes.
Her home is destroyed, her father abducted–by beings distinctly nothuman. To find him, Clara journeys to the war-ravaged land of Cane. Her only companion is the dethroned prince Nicholas, bound by a wicked curse. If they’re to survive, Clara has no choice but to trust him, but his haunted eyes burn with secrets–and a need she can’t define. With the dangerous, seductive faery queen Anise hunting them, Clara soon realizes she won’t leave Cane unscathed–if she leaves at all.
Inspired by The Nutcracker, Winterspell is a dark, timeless fairy tale about love and war, longing and loneliness, and a girl who must learn to live without fear.
HOW AWESOME DOES THAT SOUND?! Well, the best part about this post is that there is a prequel novella releasing TODAY!! Here is the blurb:
Rinka is a faery, passionate and powerful, determined to maintain the tenuous peace between faeries and humans.
Alban Somerhart is a human, a reluctant king trapped in an arranged marriage, desperate to prevent war.
Their love could save the kingdom of Cane . . . or shatter it forever.
In this captivating novella, prequel to the upcoming Winterspell, Claire Legrand weaves a story of magic, political intrigue, and forbidden love that sets the stage for the rise of a wicked queen and the journey of a human girl named Clara . . .
Ahh! I honestly can’t tell you how excited I am for these babies! Now for the super fun part! Claire was so gracious to allow me to host a little giveaway for a Winterspell swag pack!! The deets are below!
