Okay, I know this was revealed last week when Brigid dropped it early, but I still wanted to post about it on here. I fucking love this cover. I’ve been a fan of all Brigid’s covers (except for those OG Elemental Covers) and this is no exception.
You’ve probably all seen this already, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
I’m dying to get my hands on a copy of this book. I’ve been deprived of Brigid’s work for too long – I’m suffering. September is too far away. So who or what do I need to sacrifice to get my hands on a copy?
I just want to read it, scream about it and quietly die until the second book is out.
Is that too much to wish for?
So, like if anyone has a hook up, hit me up. Please?
Anyways. I can’t wait for this book. It sounds amazing, see?
From New York Times bestselling author Brigid Kemmerer comes a blockbuster fantasy series about a kingdom divided by corruption, the prince desperately holding it together, and the girl who will risk everything to bring it crashing down.
The kingdom of Kandala is on the brink of disaster. Rifts between sectors have only worsened since a sickness began ravaging the land, and within the Royal Palace, the king holds a tenuous peace with a ruthless hand.
King Harristan was thrust into power after his parents’ shocking assassination, leaving the younger Prince Corrick to take on the brutal role of the King’s Justice. The brothers have learned to react mercilessly to any sign of rebellion–it’s the only way to maintain order when the sickness can strike anywhere, and the only known cure, an elixir made from delicate Moonflower petals, is severely limited.
Out in the Wilds, apothecary apprentice Tessa Cade is tired of seeing her neighbors die, their suffering ignored by the unyielding royals. Every night, she and her best friend Wes risk their lives to steal Moonflower petals and distribute the elixir to those who need it most–but it’s still not enough.
As rumors spread that the cure no longer works and sparks of rebellion begin to flare, a particularly cruel act from the King’s Justice makes Tessa desperate enough to try the impossible: sneaking into the palace. But what she finds upon her arrival makes her wonder if it’s even possible to fix Kandala without destroying it first.
Set in a richly imaginative world with striking similarities to our own, Brigid Kemmerer’s captivating new series is about those with power and those without . . . and what happens when someone is brave enough to imagine a new future.
Like I said, September is too far away.
I’m already expecting this book to kill me – Brigid’s books always do.
So, without further ado –
I love the fact that it practically glows. I can only imagine how it’s going to look in person. And I also already know that I’m going to have at least 2, possibly 3 copies of this book on my shelf, I can’t wait. I keep going back to my Photos on my phone to stare at it. I do this a couple times a day – not lying. I love it so much, and my excitement knows no bounds. I’ve loved Brigid’s books since Storm and I cannot wait to see what journey she takes me on next.
