I don’t usually promote a book I haven’t yet read, but Kacey Vanderkarr is one of the editors of Out of the Green: Tales from Fairyland (an anthologies I’m in later this month). She has been awesome to work with, and so I’m really excited to help her promote her upcoming YA novel! This is the cover for Poison Tree, book 2 in the Reflection Pond series (find book one here), coming out on December 2, 2014.

All about the book:

The road to the City of War is dangerous.

With their home in ruins, Callie and Rowan are Eirensae’s last hope of stealing the cauldron back from Fraeburdh. They must travel into the human world where the Fallen hide. The banished fae wait for Callie, desperate to sacrifice her before she comes of age.

If Callie and Rowan survive the journey, something worse looms in Fraeburdh. Rowan is destined for a dark family legacy too horrifying to accept, and his father is anxious to welcome him home. Once the truth is revealed, will Callie ever look at Rowan the same way?

Trapped between feuding cities lost in a centuries’ old war, Callie and Rowan will face their biggest rivals yet, and neither of them will make it out unscathed.

All about the author:
