think that the fan favorite characters are obviously Cécile and Tristan, but I think that my favorite character is actually Anaïs. She stole my heart, her character is filled with so much depth and she is so complex. Her fate was left in a cliff hanger in the last book and I wanted to ask if you could, maybe, comment on whether we are going to be seeing more of her in the second book?
So if you were to spread the paperback copy of Hidden Huntress flat, this is what it would look like (less the back cover blurb)
Sometimes, one must accomplish the impossible.
Beneath the mountain, the king’s reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cécile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king’s power. Or his manipulation.
Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. But by day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for five hundred years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high.
To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. But the witch is a clever creature. And Cécile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted…
I am so excited to finally be able to share the cover for HIDDEN HUNTRESS with everyone! It was designed by the same artist who did STOLEN SONGBIRD‘s cover, Steve Stone, and I could not be happier with the results. When we first started talking about the design of the cover, I mentioned that I really wanted it to feature Cécile at the opera house, and pointed everyone to my Pinterest board featuring inspirations for the novel. The opera house in the novel is loosely based on the Palais Garnier in Paris, which, as you will see, bears a strong resemblance to the theatre on the cover.
Not only did they use my Pinterest board for background inspiration, they also used it for details like the gown Cécile is wearing, the black lace gloves she uses to cover her bonding marks, and her hairstyle.
So without further ado, here it is! Feel free to tell me what you think in the comments!
Paper copies of STOLEN SONGBIRD have been in limited supply for the past few months due to the ownership of my publisher changing hands, but MORE have been printed and will soon be available. In the meantime, they are giving away a bunch of copies to celebrate HIDDEN HUNTRESS’ cover reveal. Follow the links to enter!
