Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend! Today is a fun day with the cover reveal of Warmaidens, the sequel to 2019’s Gravemaidens! This will be the second and final book in this YA fantasy duology and it’s coming this fall. Behold the cover!
Goodreads Synopsis: Just a few moons after escaping the tomb in Alu, Kammani and the other runaway maidens have found refuge in the city-state of Manzazu. There, Kammani has become a respected healer, especially among the warriors she’s brought back from the brink of death. Now that the nightmares of Alu are fading, she can finally decide whether or not to take Dagan’s hand in marriage.
But when an assassin murders a healer he believes is Kammani and attempts to kill the displaced queen of Alu, the maidens realize they’ve been found.
Hungry for revenge, Manzazu’s queen wants to strike back at Alu with her fiercest weapons—her scorpion warrior maidens—but Kammani knows that war harms more than it heals. To save the innocents and any chance of a future with Dagan, Kammani must take down Alu’s ruler before their lives burn up in the flames of war.
This sequel is projected to come out October 20th of this year! I LOVE the pink and the scorpions and how they contrast on the cover. It’s rare these days to have white covers like the first book and then a stark, darker pink like this one. I love how the bottle is still here on the second cover and I’m certain that the scorpions will also be important or a vital symbol for this sequel. I’m also excited to see how Kammani and her friends are going to take down a new enemy. Plus, I NEED more of the Boatman in this sequel so bad! The moments he was in Gravemaidens were such a highlight so I want more naturally 🙂 The countdown to this conclusion now begins!
