My shelf candy pick today is:
Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey
Wilde Island is not at peace. The kingdom mourns the dead Pendragon king and awaits the return of his heir; the uneasy pact between dragons, fairies, and humans is strained; and the regent is funding a bloodthirsty witch hunt, hoping to rid the island of half-fey maidens.
Tess, daughter of a blacksmith, has visions of the future, but she still doesn’t expect to be accused of witchcraft, forced to flee with her two best friends, or offered shelter by the handsome and enigmatic Garth Huntsman, a warden for Dragonswood. But Garth is the younger prince in disguise and Tess soon learns that her true father was fey, making them the center of an exciting, romantic adventure, and an ancient prophecy that will bring about peace between all three races – dragon, human, and fairy.
Isn’t this a beautiful cover? The colors are gorgeous and striking and the movement is beautiful. It is almost haunting. It almost seems that she might be walking on water – yet we know she can’t be doing that – so what is she doing? Flying? Being pulled up by some unseen force?
I love the arc of her body and arms and the fullness of her skirt. It definitely makes me want to know what the story is about!
How do you feel about this cover?
