When you love a cover of a book, you want to rave about it. It’s been hard to not talk about Ash Princess, because the cover is just absolutely breathtaking.
If you haven’t heard of the book, it comes from newcomer Laura Sebastian. You know that we’re all about stories of Royals and Ash Princess doesn’t disappoint. We’ve got like 100 pages left, and it’s so damn good.
But though we have an ARC that we can’t get enough of, it won’t be available until April 2018. It’s so long to wait, because we want to discuss now.
Here’s the synopsis –
Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed “Ash Princess.” Pretending to be empty-headed and naive when she’s not enduring brutal whippings, she pushes down all other thoughts but one: Keep the Kaiser happy and he will keep you safe.
When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can’t keep her feelings and memories pushed down any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser’s warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn’t expect to develop feelings for the Prinz. Or for her rebel allies to challenge her friendship with the one person who’s been kind to her throughout the last hopeless decade: her heart’s sister, Cress.
Cornered into impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she’s willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she’s willing to sacrifice to become queen.
But let us all get to the cover –
Stunning, right? We couldn’t agree more.
And just to get you even more excited for it – Bustle also has the prologue available. READ IT HERE.
