Title: Circle of Shadows
Author: Evelyn Skye
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Release Date: January 22, 2019
Today I’m super excited to be sharing the cover for Evelyn Skye’s new YA fantasy story, CIRCLE OF SHADOWS. I completely loved Evelyn Skye’s debut, THE CROWN”S GAME, and credit it as one of the books that got me into historical YA. So I am so excited to see what she comes up with next!
Circle of Shadows
Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.
As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group.Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.
Love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them—and the entire kingdom—apart.
Isn’t this so beautiful??? I love the cool tone color palette. I love the font – it’s remenicent of shadows! I love the literal circle of shadow behind the title that spirals up from the palace. I love the glass palace (it reminds me of the covers for The Crown’s Game/The Crown’s Fate which are some of my favorite covers ever!) And the soilders on the cover look formidable and intimidating! I can’t wait!!!
Make sure you add this book to your TBR because you won’t want to miss it! It’s at the top of my list for 2019 releases!
