Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal for you today. Girl, Serpent, Thorn is a new novel by Melissa Bashardoust. This is an original fairy tale that tells the story of a princess with poisonous skin as she tries to navigate through the world and determine what she wants for her future. Girl, Serpent, Thorn is set to release later on this year on May 12th.
Synopsis of Girl, Serpent, Thorn from Good Reads: There was and there was not, as all stories begin, a princess cursed to be poisonous to the touch. But for Soraya, who has lived her life hidden away, apart from her family, safe only in her gardens, it’s not just a story.
As the day of her twin brother’s wedding approaches, Soraya must decide if she’s willing to step outside of the shadows for the first time. Below in the dungeon is a demon who holds knowledge that she craves, the answer to her freedom. And above is a young man who isn’t afraid of her, whose eyes linger not with fear, but with an understanding of who she is beneath the poison.
Soraya thought she knew her place in the world, but when her choices lead to consequences she never imagined, she begins to question who she is and who she is becoming...human or demon. Princess or monster.
