Massive shout to Tor and Ed for allowing FFA to show off the GORGEOUS cover for Witch Queen of Redwinter, the 3rd and final novel in Ed’s Redwinter Chronicles series from Tor.
In case you either forgot or haven’t seen them (hiding under a rock much?), here are the covers for the first (2) in the series.
But you are here for the cover of Witch Queen, so here we go 🙂
The conclusion to Ed McDonald’s Chronicles of Redwinter, full of shady politics, militant monks, ancient powers… and a young woman navigating a world in which no one is quite what they seem.
Raine and her closest allies have left the world behind them, borne through into the ever-changing Fault, a nightmare land of deformed, monstrous spirits and creatures of legend that have been trapped there for centuries. Even as they struggle to find a way to free themselves from the dark powers that trap them there, they are drawn towards a dark city on the horizon – a city that never draws closer no matter how long they pursue it. Allies are hard to find, and the dark king of the Fault is never far from their heels, whispering darkness and reaching with inhuman limbs to bear them down into the darkness. Raine seeks the Queen of Feathers, but her guide and mentor has gone strangely silent.
But the world that Raine, Esher and Sanvaunt left behind now teeters on the brink of destruction. The Crown is unbound, violent disasters break the earth, and the creatures and corrupting magic of the Fault pour through. Worse, Ovitus LacNaithe, the Traitor of Redwinter, has seized power, unaware that he is being manipulated by the Fault’s dark master, Iddin, who would merge his prison with the true world above if it meant he can escape it. Raine must tear her soul in two to fight the battle on both fronts, existing in both the world above and the world below simultaneously, meeting her other self only in dreams. For she knows that she is the only one who has the power to reactivate the dead Crowns, and only through mastering the terrible necromantic power within her can she do so. She must go beyond morality, beyond humanity, and become the very dark queen she has always feared she could be. Only she can stop the enemies of the world both above it, and in the hellish Fault below.
