Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. Into The Bloodred Woods by Martha Brockenbrough is a new Brothers Grimm style fantasy full of feminist power, were creatures, magic, and mayhem. I'd read it just because the main protagonist has the same name as me! This book sounds amazingly brutal and fantastic, so of course I cannot wait to read it!
Synopsis of Into The Bloodred Woods from Goodreads:
Once upon a time there was a kingdom and a forest that liked to eat men and a girl who would change everything, but not alone . . .
There's no such thing as once upon a time.
In a far away land, populated by were beasts and surrounded by a powerful forest, lies a kingdom about to be sent into chaos. On his deathbed, King Tyran divides his land, leaving half to each of his two children-so they'll rule together. However, his son, Albrecht, is not satisfied with half a kingdom. And even though his sister, Ursula, is the first born, he decides that as a girl and were bear, she is unfit to rule. So he invades her land, slaughtering her people and most of the were beasts, and claims it for himself. As King Albrecht builds his iron rule and an army of beasts to defend his reign, Ursula is gathering the survivors and making plans to take back the kingdom. Not just her half-the whole thing. Because Albrecht should have never been allowed to sit on the throne, and Ursula is going to take his crown. And if he's not careful, he might not get to keep his head either.
