I’m a bit late to the cover reveal for this, but better late than never right? First of all, I’d like to give a huge thanks to The Parliament House for letting me be part of showing off the cover for A Wild and Unremarkable Thing by Jen Castleberry. I’d never heard of the book before I got an email about the cover, but this cover freaking blew me away.
The cover is beautiful and dynamic and look at the monster in the background! I just love it so much. Plus, that description sounds so good, guys, doesn’t it? I honestly would like to find time in my reading schedule for this book.
Fifteen years have passed since a Fire Scale scorched Cayda’s village. Fifteen years of beatings, of bare kitchen cupboards and sloppy swordplay. Fifteen years of biting her lip for her father’s cane while her younger sisters did the same for the grimy patrons of the village brothels. Fifteen years of staring steadfastly after beauty in an increasingly ugly world.
Now, with hair shorn and breast bound, Cayda marches into the Summer Alps as Cody, a hopeful Champion seeking a dragon-slayer’s reward, with the full weight of her family’s survival on her shoulders.
But the road between poverty and prosperity is rife with beasts, betrayals, and baser temptations. Sensible Cayda soon discovers that she is not the only Champion with her eye on the prize, or the only one wearing a disguise.
With monsters, gods, and royalty hot on her heels, Cayda must ask herself if victory is worth sacrificing her identity for – or her life.
A Wild and Unremarkable Thing pits girl against dragon in a stunning blend of Greek mythology and medieval lore. Readers will not quickly forget the diverse cast or the thrilling, sexy ride!
