Hi there everyone! Today is a special day because it is the release day for a very exciting book that we have been eagerly anticipating and we think you guys will be too once you hear a little bit about it. So, in order to get you guys all onboard with this awesome book, we thought today we would spend some time focusing on it and giving it a little bit of a boost. You may have seen it floating around bookstagram, but the book we’re talking about is a brand new, middle grade fantasy called The Crowns of Croswald by debut author D.E. Night!!!!
Here it is…
First of all, isn’t that cover just gorgeous? We know, we know, you guys totally agree 😉 But seriously, it really is one of the most beautiful covers we have seen so that already gives it a leg up in our book!
With that being said, let us give you guys a little bit of background on this great new fantasy read. The Crowns of Croswald, as we said earlier, is a brand new middle grade fantasy that is simply overflowing with whimsy, adventure and steampunk undertones and, in the middle of it all, is gutsy heroine, Ivy—just think part Cinderella, part Harry Potter and part Percy Jackson. If that doesn’t reel you in, we don’t know what will! But in case you’re still not quite on board (we don’t know how you couldn’t be…) here’s the magical synopsis:
In Croswald, the only thing more powerful than dark magic is one secret…
For sixteen years Ivy Lovely has been hidden behind an enchanted boundary that separates the mundane from the magical. When Ivy crosses the border, her powers awaken. Curiosity leads her crashing through a series of adventures at the Halls of Ivy, a school where students learn to master their magical blood and the power of Croswald’s mysterious gems. When Ivy’s magic––and her life––is threatened by the Dark Queen, she scrambles to unearth her history and save Croswald before the truth is swept away forever.
Whaaatttt????? Now you guys want to read it right? Right? Admit it? We’re all in the same boat. This book sounds and actually is AMAZING! And if you guys think the amazingness stops there then you guys are totally wrong. We have a couple of other awesome things about this book that we just have to share with you! So buckle up! You’re in for an exciting ride!
The new thing we’re actually going to say may seem weird, but we’re going to tell you to leave this post. Leave our site. Forget about us and head on over to author D.E. Night’s website. Turn on your sound, put in your headphones, turn down the lights and click the link on the home page that says “discover the adventure”—you will not be disappointed! We’ll wait…
So, now that you have checked out D.E. Night’s out-of-this-world interactive website and hopefully gotten yourself engrossed in the sample chapter written on worn parchment paper (which you can find at the end of your interactive journey) or caught in the spell-binding book trailer, you’re probably wondering “HOW HAVE I NOT TRIED TO GET MYSELF A COPY OF THIS BOOK ALREADY???” And, honestly, we are too. Like, what are you guys doing?
