Hello, lost boys and girls, pirates, fairies, Neverbeasts, and everyone else! Welcome to the cover reveal for Kara Swanson’s Shadow!
I am so excited and honored to participate in this reveal. For those of you who don’t know, Shadow is book two in a duology, the Heirs of Neverland, which is a Peter Pan retelling/sequel. The first book, Dust, released last summer, and I got to read an ARC! It’s not my favorite book ever, but my main complaint was just that I wanted more, so of course I’m very much looking forward to Shadow‘s release (in July).
about the book
(warning: slight spoilers from Dust below!!)
Peter Pan has crash-landed back on Neverland. But this is not the island he remembers.
Desperate to rescue Claire and the fractured Lost Boys, Peter must unravel what truly tore his dreamland apart. But with each step, he is haunted by more of his own broken memories. Not even Pan himself is what he seems.
Claire Kenton is chained to a pirate ship, watching the wreckage of Neverland rocked by tempests. When she finally finds her brother, Connor is every bit as shattered as the island. Claire may have pixie dust flowing in her veins—but the light of Neverland is flickering dangerously close to going out forever.
To rescue Neverland from the inescapable shadow, the boy who never grew up and the girl who grew up too fast will have to sacrifice the only thing they have left: each other.
THIS. This is what I want! More Peter/Claire tension! More Neverland! More Connor!
If you haven’t read Dust now… get yourself a copy, because you’re going to need to read it before trying Shadow.
So, my friends… isn’t that cover gorgeous? Ahhh! Go check out Dust and Shadow, and may your day be lovely!
Note: Most of the cover reveal partying is taking place on Instagram, so if you want to hop over there (I don’t have Instagram; thus the blog reveal)…
Until next time!
P.S. Have you read Dust or Peter Pan? If so, who is your favorite character? (Mine are Jeremy and Lily from Dust!) Which cover do you like better — Dust or Shadow?
