Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal to share with you today. The Cruelest Mercy by Natalie Mae is a new YA fantasy romance and the second book in the Kinder Poison series. In this sequel the magical kingdom of Orkena is on the brink of war, and the only person who can save it is Zahru, the girl they once doomed for death. I love the green color theme of this cover. Its design is a perfect match for the first book...The Kinder Poison.
Synopsis of The Cruelest Mercy from Goodreads:
After surviving the Crossing, Zahru has sworn off adventures. While crown prince Jet navigates the looming threat of war, she's content to simply figure out what the future holds for them. But they're dealt a devastating blow when prince Kasta returns with a shocking claim: he's the true winner of the Crossing and the rightful heir, and he bears the gods' mark as proof. Even more surprising--he's not the only one.
Somehow, Zahru possesses the very same mark, giving her equal right to the throne. The last thing she wants is to rule beside her would-be executioner, but she can't let Orkena fall into his merciless hands. So Zahru, Jet, and their allies must race against the clock to find a way to denounce Kasta before their coronation, because once he's crowned, there's no telling what horrors he'll unleash to win the war.
Zahru will do whatever it takes to keep Kasta from taking the throne...but to stop a villain, is she willing to become one herself?
