 THE DAY IS FINALLY HERE! It's the official day for His Black Wings cover reveal. Are you ready? Are you? Are you? Because the cover definitely took my breath away when I first saw it.

Brace yourself.

His Black Wings is...
Beauty and the Beast set in the future during a Victorian era revival. 
The Grand Council has brought the world peace, but will it last?
Malice, revenge and lust are not easily defeated...
Claren Maidstone has been forced to flee her childhood home, following the death of her parents and a vicious attack from a man who intends to marry her. 
She assumes a new identity and finds employment as an assistant to the handsome, Fredrick Lowood. However, Fredrick's generosity isn't without a price and Claren soon finds herself forced into a strange friendship with his disfigured son. 
Unaware of how Claren's past entwines with his own, 
Etrigan Lowood begins to yearn for her love. 
Unfortunately, the past is not far behind.
Is his love for Claren enough? 
Or will Etrigan remain alone with his black wings... 

What do you think guys? I don't usually go for anime-ish cover but with that kind of synopsis, His Black Wings does remind me a lot of my favourite anime/manga, Kuroshitsuji, also set in Victorian Era. So saying that I'm excited for the release is an understatement (it'll be out early November this year, by the way)!

@ Justine: I know right!! I'm so itching to get my hands on the book.

Is the giveaway international? Because is so I'd love to participate! It sounds awesome!

Yes, yes. This giveaway is international :D

My first impression? It seems really good! I really like fai-re-telling (fairytale retelling) and I've really enjoyed some Beauty-and-the-beast ones. Plus I really like the Victorian era and I love anime, which makes this sound good. The entire setting sounds really awesome, and I'd love to have this book :]

Me likey Victorian era tooooooo~
Have you read The Curse Girl by Kate Avery Ellison. I think you might like this Beauty and the Beast retelling. :)

Hi! I welcome comments and feedback! But because I suck at HTML code, I don't know how to add reply button to each comment (I tried googled it but I think this template doesn't allow such change), so I will be very lousy at keeping track of the comments but it doesn't mean that I don't appreciate your comments! ^_^
