Cover Reveals: Iron and Roses, Thorns, & Curses


I've got something for y'all I like to call a double whammy. That's right. Not just one cover reveal...TWO! No, neither of them are of Bound and Determined (yet!), but they are for two fantastical fairytale retellings releasing this year!

I'm a part of the Feathers and Roses: All Things Fairy Tale Dual Cover Reveal, hosted by Jen’s Author Assistance, which means I get to share about Jenavieve's own debut novel, Roses, Thorns, and Curses, AND Iron by Madisyn Carlin (which are both releasing this September)!

Enforcing justice comes with a price.


Detective Redwyn “Red” Deathan will stop at nothing to uncover those behind the ruthless kidnappings of multiple children. But things are not as they seem, and Red’s efforts are thwarted at every turn. With each discovery the danger grows, putting Red and the lives of those she cares about at risk. Can she reveal the mastermind’s identity before she herself becomes a target?

roses, thorns, and curses by jenavieve rose

A Fae bides her time, waiting to unleash her wrath on those who betrayed her. A prince seeks the answer to the dream that has plagued him for months. A princess who has lain in slumber awakens to find her world not quite right.


When Sorren finds the answer and awakens the princess, he also finds himself involved with a curse. Before Maelle can exact her revenge she is enslaved by Sorren's brother, a beast of a man who pits Fae against Fae in his uncle’s arena. Aurana must navigate memory loss and her newfound Dreamwalking abilities that send her between her world and the realm of the Fae. After Sorren and Aurana work with an old friend of Maelle’s to rescue her from the arena, they must seek help from someone who betrayed Maelle if Aurana wishes to control her Dreamwalking before she descends into madness.


When an ancient evil from the Fae realm threatens them all, they must set aside their own agendas to stop the looming darkness and learn that righteous vengeance shall overcome what revenge has left broken asunder.

Jenavieve Rose has had a love for stories and a highly-active imagination her whole life. Creating her own stories and worlds through Fantasy, or any other branch of Spec-Fic, makes her feel closest to her Creator. In doing so she mimics The One Who created all things. She’s inspired by a myriad of different books, movies, and even video games, but especially by fairy tales. She writes stories where good overcomes evil and hope shines all the brighter through the darkness, for those are the stories that mean something, the ones that really matter.

Music also inspires her and her writing, sparking a story idea or fueling her passion on a topic she wants to share. It’s rare to see her without her headphones on and either worship music or movie soundtracks flitting between her ears.

In all she does she strives to do the will of her Father and spread His hope.

I dunno about y'all, but I'm pretty excited for these Christian fairytale retellings - and not just because the covers are gorgeous (although, believe me, that does play a part)! Y'all let me know in the comments which of these (if not both) you look forward to reading and which cover is your favorite! And, let's face it, we're talking about fairytales here, so I must know...which is your absolute favorite fairytale ever? (And can you guess which one is my fave? *winks*)


yours in spirit and script,

Grace

I would have guessed Sleeping Beauty since your site is called Blades and Thorns and they are both in that story. But sadly I accidently read the below comment telling me I am wrong. I love Beauty and the Beast as well. I am not sure my fave, but I like The Little Mermaid(with the tragic ending) and I like Asen Pudle(not sure if I spelled that right), The Valliant Little Tailor, that one about the seven men with special abilities..

Those covers are SO cool looking!

Oops! XD Ooh, yes, The Little Mermaid is such a classic! I've never heard of the others! (But I do remember one about five brothers with special abilities...hmm.)

Glad you think so! :)

(Hehe, I can't wait till you reveal the cover for Bound and Determined!!😉)


I can't wait to read both of these fairy tale retellings!!!!!!! The covers are so beautiful!!!! I was going to guess that your fav fairy tale was Cinderella or Rapunzel . . . but then I cheated and read your comment saying it was Beauty and the Beast. (Sorry about that.😂) Beauty and the Beast is a great fairytale!!!!! I love that one and Cinderella and Rapunzel and The Snow Queen and Sleeping Beauty and The Frog Prince and the list goes on and on. XDDD (I need help, lol.)

Uh, you're hiding in a different hole, girly. XDD Nah, I gotcha. XD (Although I have seen most of the Marvel movies...at least all of the older ones.)
