So today, I am honored to present to you the cover to The Violet Fox, a novel by Clare C. Marshall. It’s set for release on October 13, 2012 and for those of you unfamiliar with the plot, here’s the book blurb.
There are two kinds of people in the land of Marlenia.
The Marlenians, who live on the surface,
and the Freetors, who are forced to live underground.
The war between them ended two hundred years ago, but the Freetors still fight for the right to live under the sun. Fifteen-year-old Kiera Driscoll embodies the Freetors’ hopes as the Violet Fox. In a violet cape and mask, she sneaks around Marlenia City stealing food and freeing her people from slavery.
Then the Elders task her with a secret mission: retrieve a stolen tome that contains the secrets of Freetor magic, something the Marlenians both fear and covet. Kiera must disguise herself as a noblewoman and infiltrate the Marlenian castle before the Freetor-hating Advisor finds out her real identity, before her brother is imprisioned because of the secrets he hides, and before she falls any more in love with the prince she’s supposed to hate.
More is happening in the castle than she realizes, and Kiera is faced with a difficult choice. Will she be loyal to her people and their fight for freedom, or will she be loyal to her heart?
And *drumroll*, here is the absolutely intriguing cover of The Violet Fox!
Isn’t it a beauty? Moreover, the shorter version of the blurb sounds so intriguing and interesting. Gah!
That’s what instinct told me.
But in order to save the secrets of my people
and to protect my brother
I have to become the enemy.
