I’m doing this one on my own folks, and one of the things I was most worried about was finding a cover as beautiful as the last one. I lucked out majorly. The first week I started to look, I found an artist who I liked, but quickly discovered she was filled up and not taking any new commissions for the year. Then I looked through her premade covers, and THERE WAS KATIE. I contacted the artist, requested a few tweaks, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. Thank you, Rebecca Frank. I love it.
Now on to the official blurb:
After the Winter Queen took Shay, I became determined to watch Winter fall.
Seventeen-year-old Katie Graham does not believe in fairytales or happy endings.
Alienated from her family and abandoned by the boy she loves, Katie jumps off a bridge in the dead of winter expecting death. Instead, she enters a snowy netherworld.
The trapped souls of this realm take on animal form, living out their baser instincts and core emotions in an eternal fairytale. Katie might have accepted this fate for herself, but when she discovers that her former love has been imprisoned by the Winter Queen, Katie becomes determined to rescue him. To gain the strength and light needed to confront Winter, Katie must travel through the lands of all the seasonal fairies—physical representations of the emotional scars of her past—before she and Shay are forever trapped.
WINTER FALLS is based on the fairytale, The Snow Queen, and split between two timelines—showing Katie’s home in postindustrial-era Riverside and her journey through Winter’s realm.
Young Adult/Teen novel with themes in mental health, it will appeal to those who enjoy traditional fantasies along the lines of C.S. Lewis and Shannon Hale.
