So, I’m a huge fan of The Wilderhark series by Danielle E. Shipley, and she’s been so kind enough to provide me ARCs of every novella that has come out! Bless her! She knows my love of fairy tales, YA literature, and Edgwyn Wyle. 😉 (If you don’t know what that’s in reference to, pick up your copy of EVERY Wilderhark Tale out there! Like, now! 🙂 )
Since I’ve been behind on EVERYTHING lately, I missed The Sun’s Rival ARC during its release last year. *insert sad face here* But, the wonderful Ms. Shipley ended up sending me a copy of The Sun’s Rival anyway. Let me tell you, I fell in love with the moon! Okay okay, this isn’t about The Sun’s Rival, but instead, book six in the Wilderhark Tales! (Read the review of The Sun’s Rival here. You know, after you finish up viewing this awesome cover.) I’m reading an ARC of it currently, and I’m loving it!!
So, to tease you a bit, here’s the amazing cover of The Surrogate Sea!
What’s the Surrogate Sea about?
The Sea’s storm brought them together, and the Sea’s rules will keep them apart, unless the mute but melodious Muirigan can find another to take her place, freeing her to pursue the human man she loves. But when her plan collides with the schemes of the sly South Wind, a princess’s agenda to look for love in all the most fantastic places, and a prince whose head and heart have been long years at war, the result is a tragedy of errors from which the world might never recover.
The Surrogate Sea (Book Six of The Wilderhark Tales)
<> ~ <> ~ <>
An enchantress’s curse turns a spoiled royal into a beast; a princess’s pricked finger places her under a hundred-year spell; bales of straw are spun as golden as the singing harp whisked down a giant beanstalk – all within sight of Wilderhark, the forest that’s seen it all.
You’ve heard the stories – of young men scaling rope-like braids to assist the tower-bound damsel; of gorgeous gowns appearing just in time for a midnight ball; of frog princes, and swan princes, and princes saved from drowning by maidens of the sea. Tales of magic. Tales of adventure. Most of all, tales of true love.
Once upon a time, you knew them as fairytales. Know them now as Wilderhark’s.
Ah! This is exciting! I’m not sure when I’ll be able to post the review, or I would do so now. Just know, that you’ll want to get this on March 24th when it’s released!
Go ahead and add it to your Goodreads’ Lists!
