I have been anticipating Pam Halter‘s Fairyeater for a long time, and it’s finally time to reveal the cover! Isn’t it gorgeous?
The book comes out the day after my birthday, October 25! It’s published by L2L2 Publishing.
I know you’re wondering what Fairyeater is about. Here’s the teaser from the back cover:
All fifteen-year-old Akeela has ever wanted is an ordinary family who will love her. But the only mother she has ever known is the old hag, Krezma, who berates her night and day. Why did the old woman even take her in?
But Krezma knows her charge is no ordinary child. She can see the auras surrounding living things and communicates with fairies. And the birthmark on her palm reveals a secret Krezma must hold close for the child’s safety.
A secret that the witch, Tzmet, hunts for night and day, drying and eating fairies for the power they contain. When Akeela discovers her fate lies in being the next Fairy Guardian, all hope for an ordinary life dissipates like the dreams they were. She must protect the fairies from the witch and an even darker power that threatens them all.
Akeela is unwillingly thrust into an adventure that throws her into the hands of friends, strangers, and enemies masquerading as allies, and it will not end until she decides to accept her fate and give up her dream.
Maybe even her life.
I’m so excited to read this in October! I’m going to preorder it, and I’ll let you know when that option is available, okay, dear readers?
Pam also has some fun picture books for younger kids about Willoughby the Dragon. I encourage you to check those out.
