Official permission is in, and I can officially share the cover and flap copy for THE EVER AFTERS 2: OF WITCHES AND WIND!!!
Are you ready??? Because I’m ready. I’ve been squeeing over this cover since I first saw it this summer, and it’s kind of been a special sort of torture to not share it with you all.
Once upon a time, there was a story waiting to be told…
Rory Landon has a Destiny. Everyone knows about it, but no one will tell her what it means. This is all very troubling considering the similarities between her and the infamous Snow Queen, trapped in her glass castle. No matter what it turns out to be, Rory is certain about one thing; she doesn’t want to be like her.
But at the Ever After School program, you cannot choose your Tale.
Having been a Companion on her best friend’s successful Tale, Rory has finally found her footing in this new world, where fairy tales are real. But when a nefarious plot threatens all her new friends, Rory finds herself back on another quest, this time to the lost continent of Atlantis. With the clock ticking away, and a never-ending cast of characters interrupting them, Rory’s destiny might not even matter if she can’t get through this alive.
You guys, Atlantis is so cool! It’s a Hidden Continent, which means it floats around the Pacific Ocean under such a heavy glamour/invisibility spell that most humans can’t find it. Magical creatures live freely there rather than sneaking around like they do in human areas, so that means it’s a lot more dangerous – the Unseelie Fey Court is in charge, and they’re not very fond of Characters like Rory, Chase, and Lena. Plus, trolls live under bridges, green-skinned witches ride the Fey railway, and endangered talking horses called the Dapplegrim roam around in the south. Basically, you’ll get to see a lot more of the magical world in THE EVER AFTERS 2: OF WITCHES AND WIND, not just Ever After School itself.
Also, I just have to show you the full spread of this jacket, so you can see the back.
The girl on the boulder is Darcy, who has a cameo in OF GIANTS AND ICE (near the beginning).
Now, without further ado…
