I am SO excited to finally be sharing this with all of you!
It’s hard to believe that we’re just about a month and a half away from the day From Under the Mountain will be sent out into the world. I’m having all those gut-churning shifts between excitement and terror. But my feelings about this cover are ALL excitement.
This cover absolutely captures the mood of the book; I couldn’t imagine a better face for this story. So without further ado, scroll on!
Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh isn’t it incredible???
As the second child of the Aridan imperial family, nineteen-year-old Guerline knows exactly what is expected of her: be unobtrusive, be compliant, and do not fall in love with her low-born companion, Eva. She has succeeded at only two of those.
But before her feelings for Eva can become a point of contention for the royal house, Guerline’s calm and narrow life is ripped away from her—in the course of a single night—and she is abruptly cast in the role of empress.
Faced with a council that aggressively fears the four witch clans charged with protecting Arido and believes they are, in fact, waging war against the humans, Guerline struggles to maintain order. As her control over the land crumbles, she learns that the war is rooted in a conflict much older than she realized—one centuries in the making, which is now crawling from under the mountain and into the light. With the fate of Arido hanging in the balance, Guerline must decide who to trust when even her closest councilors seem to have an agenda.
Darkly cinematic, From Under the Mountain pairs the sweeping landscape of epic fantasy with the personal journey of finding one’s voice in the world, posing the question: how do you define evil, when everything society tells you is a lie?
