book spotlight | a bird in the snow by m.c. kennedy
Oh, yes, fourteen months after the original release of her first book, A Wolf's Rose, M.C. Kennedy is BACK! In case you missed it, she recently updated and re-released her first novel with a brand-new cover (which is SO gorgeous, lemme tell ya), and now she's just celebrated the release of book TWO, A Bird in the Snow.
Y'all, when I first read the blurb for this book, my jaw literally dropped. It's the perfect fantasy mashup of Robin Hood and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs—coupled with some sweet romance and epic themes (which M.C. Kennedy will be on to talk about in a few days!), so how could I not love it??? I don't know about y'all, but I am SO excited to read it and super excited to share all about it with y'all! Once you read the blurb below, let me know down in the comments if it sounds like it's right up your alley too!
(Also, that. cover. 😍)
~ the book ~
Can even the worst mistakes be forgiven?
Ean Cochall has lived in the wilderness for two years, providing for the needy by day and assassinating rogues by night. It's all in pursuit of one thing: justice. So when he's approached by a mysterious figure and asked to kill a fae accused of crimes against the Gwyns, he readily accepts.
Murrin has fled to the wilderness to hide from someone who seeks her life. She has the name of a fey who can protect her: Ean Cochall, leader of the outlaw band the Green Company. What she doesn't know is that Ean already knows about her—and he was just hired to kill her.
As dark secrets come to light and old ghosts rise from the dead, will Ean uncover the truth? Or will his own mistakes come back to haunt him, making justice something not even he wants to achieve?

M. C. Kennedy fell in love with fantasy at nine years old after reading The Lord of the Rings. She now strives to reflect her Creator by dreaming up fictional realms that point readers to His truths in the real world. When she’s not roaming through fanciful forests, struggling to understand Greek and Hebrew, or geeking out over one of her many fandoms, she loves to connect with readers on her website or her various social media platforms.
