About the Book
I would need wit and caution.
Or powerful friends.Hannah West
Return to the land of Nissera, home to spectacular magic. An uneasy peace reigns now that Valory has vanquished the Moth King and settled into her rightful place as queen of Calgoran. New leaders Glisette and Kadri hope to usher the neighboring kingdoms into an era of healing and prosperity. All should be well.
But there’s a fourth queen in charge: Ambrosine, banished overseas to Perispos. Driven by vanity, she vows to become the most powerful and beautiful ruler in the world, even if it means oppressing the mortal kingdom she is meant to protect. Meanwhile a dangerous uprising led by elicromancer-hating rebels gains momentum. Rot spreads through the Forest of the West Fringe. Valory goes missing. Facing enemies on all sides, Glisette and Kadri must reckon with the role of magic. How far will they go to defend their power—and can they build an uprising of their own?
They hadn’t demanded an answer from me yet, but the weight of their request made me drop back onto the mattress.Hannah West
West intertwines homages to Snow White and Bluebeard with her imaginative magical setting for an exhilarating installment in the acclaimed Nissera Chronicles. Stunning hardcover edition includes a two-page map and family tree.
The mirror burst into shards. The laughter stopped.Hannah West
While I’ve been enjoying reading new and different genres, it’s always like a sense of relief when I go back and read something in the fantasy realm. It’s just such a comforting genre for me and will always feel like home. This series was also just plain amazing and I loved all of the Snow White elements in this book!
Your first execution. How does it feel?
I feel . . . riveted.Hannah West
I really liked the way this retelling was done because it wasn’t just a direct modernized retelling, but it also wasn’t so vague that you would never be able to tell it was a retelling unless otherwise told. That was very wordy, but I think you get my point! Overall I really enjoyed how this series moved along and how the stories flowed and meshed together.
There my composure went again. Thankfully, neither man seemed to care.Hannah West
This was a new series for me and I got really excited when I saw the blog tour sign-ups! I mean, what’s better than being handed an excuse for buying and binging more books! It was one of those series where I knew as soon as I saw the cover that I would love it. I mean, I did read the synopsis and think, “heck yes!” but the covers are just so beautiful for me not to mention!
About the Author
I’m the author of young adult books including The Nissera Chronicles series and The Bitterwine Oath. I’ve been writing fantasy since kindergarten, when I penned my first tale about a princess who ran away and lived at the top of a flagpole with two loaves of bread. But it wasn’t until I studied abroad in Orléans, France during college that the premise for my first novel materialized. The fairy tale castles, the snowy winter days, and a Disney princess pencil that arrived in a care package from my parents provided the inspiration that allowed me to wrangle all my untold and unfinished stories into a novel.
I currently live in the Dallas area with my husband and our two rambunctious rescue dogs.
