The picture doesn’t do the cover of this justice – the moon is shining gold, glinting off the feathers of the soaring bird (which I think is a vulture, rather than the eagle I assumed at first glance). I love that the clouds almost look like waves swirling and crashing into the moon and that the stars and wisps of cloud behind it almost give the impression that you are moving very fast.
It is an intriguing cover and the blurb just drags you in further. Gods and promises and the mysterious Smiler’s Fair – I am itching to get lost in this book – it sounds like everything I love to read all in one. I just hope it lives up to all my excitement!
Yron the moon god died, but now he’s reborn in the false king’s son. His human father wanted to kill him, but his mother sacrificed her life to save him. He’ll return one day to claim his birthright. He’ll change your life.
He’ll change everything.
Smiler’s Fair: the great moving carnival where any pleasure can be had, if you’re willing to pay the price. They say all paths cross at Smiler’s Fair. They say it’ll change your life. For five people, Smiler’s Fair will change everything.
In a land where unimaginable horror lurks in the shadows, where the very sun and moon are at war, five people – Nethmi, the orphaned daughter of a murdered nobleman, who in desperation commits an act that will haunt her forever. Dae Hyo, the skilled warrior, who discovers that a lifetime of bravery cannot make up for a single mistake. Eric, who follows his heart only to find that love exacts a terrible price. Marvan, the master swordsman, who takes more pleasure from killing than he should. And Krish, the humble goatherd, with a destiny he hardly understands and can never accept – will discover just how much Smiler’s Fair changes everything.
