Cover Reveal: The Violet Fox by Clare Marshall

Hello lovelies!! I have a cover reveal for all of you today. I love doing cover reveals, don't you? Anyways, the book I have for you is Violet Fox by Clare Marshall.

Overview

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 imprisoned 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?

The author has also included some fun facts for us to post, and I thought they were pretty cool. Here they are:

Fun facts:

-As always, my covers are designed by my boyfriend, Dave.
-The runes along the outside are made from scratch. There are 26 of them. One for each letter of the alphabet. They represent a secret code that the protagonist, Kiera, and her people can read.
-The working title for the book was FREETOR, a combination of “freedom” and “fighter”.
-This is the first book in a series, but it was originally intended to be a one-off book. The world and the characters kind of ran away with me. However, this book can be read as a stand alone.

  2. The thing I definitely love most about this cover is the font for the Violet and Fox! I also love how it's such a beautiful purple color, with an orange glow behind it, which really makes the words stand out, which is super important! [I don't know if normal people would notice all that, but being a graphic designer, albeit, not a good one, I notice small things like that! XD].Anyways, the synopsis sounds totally interesting as well, so this one will definitely have to go onto my TBR!

    Thanks for sharing the cover, Amy! <3

  3. Okay, first off, the cover is BEAUTIFUL. I adore it. And second off, the fun facts made it about a million times cooler. It's so awesome that she made up all the runes herself! And that her boyfriend made the cover. :D Thanks for showing us the cover! If I can, I think I'm going to check this one out when it releases.

  5. Thanks Amy for participating in the cover reveal! I should note that all credit for the rune creation also goes to my boyfriend :) I told him what I wanted and he created it with his tablet. I have too shaky a hand, hehe!
