Cover Reveal: Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman

Eee! I am SO excited about this precious book :D Been waiting years for it. Sigh. Going to be SO GOOD. I loved Seraphina and Shadow Scale oh so much, and I have been dying for more books by Rachel for years now. Eeee. Love that this book is set in the same world, with a character that was a little bit in the earlier books :D This book used to be called Tess in Boots, which I adored so much. Aw. But love this new title too :D Eee. I simply cannot wait to read about Tess. And oh my god. THIS COVER. Love it so.

Meet Tess, a brave new heroine from beloved epic fantasy author Rachel Hartman.

In the medieval kingdom of Goredd, women are expected to be ladies, men are their protectors, and dragons get to be whomever they want. Tess, stubbornly, is a troublemaker. You can't make a scene at your sister's wedding and break a relative's nose with one punch (no matter how pompous he is) and not suffer the consequences. As her family plans to send her to a nunnery, Tess yanks on her boots and sets out on a journey across the Southlands, alone and pretending to be a boy.

Where Tess is headed is a mystery, even to her. So when she runs into an old friend, it's a stroke of luck. This friend is a quigutl--a subspecies of dragon--who gives her both a purpose and protection on the road. But Tess is guarding a troubling secret. Her tumultuous past is a heavy burden to carry, and the memories she's tried to forget threaten to expose her to the world in more ways than one.

Returning to the fascinating world she created in the award-winning and New York Times bestselling Seraphina, Rachel Hartman introduces readers to a new character and a new quest, pushing the boundaries of genre once again in this wholly original fantasy.


  1. The synopsis... The cover.....
    Totally adding to GR!

  2. This does look and sound fabulous. I still need to read the Seraphina series! It's been on my list for ages! :)

  3. That's a beautiful cover, Carina! I love how the dragon and mountains are incorporated together. Very original! :)

  4. I remember thinking Seraphina was good but not the best for me. I never read Shadow Scale, and I'm not sure I will. This new book though... Maybe? I'm glad you're excited about it! I hope you love it!

    Have a great day, Carina. =)
