DARK OF THE WEST by Joanna Hathaway / Cover Reveal #DarkOfTheWest

Welcome to today's cover reveal for DARK OF THE WEST by Joanna Hathaway! This debut will be out next year from Tor Teen, and I'm so thrilled to team up with them, and a variety of other bloggers to share this stunning cover. 


Isn't this a beautiful cover? Based on the synopsis, it looks like the cover matches the story perfectly. I love the castle in the back ground and the warplanes in the sky. I'm looking forward to reading this book.

He was raised in revolution. She was raised in a palace. Can their love stop a war? Code Name Verity meets The Winner's Curse in Joanna Hathaway's Dark of the West, a breathtaking YA fantasy debut.

Aurelia Isendare is a princess of a small kingdom in the North, raised in privilege but shielded from politics as her brother prepares to step up to the throne. Halfway around the world, Athan Dakar, the youngest son of a ruthless general, is a fighter pilot longing for a life away from the front lines. When Athan’s mother is shot and killed, his father is convinced it’s the work of his old rival, the Queen of Etania—Aurelia’s mother. Determined to avenge his wife’s murder, he devises a plot to overthrow the Queen, a plot which sends Athan undercover to Etania to gain intel from her children.

Athan’s mission becomes complicated when he finds himself falling for the girl he’s been tasked with spying upon. Aurelia feels the same attraction, all the while desperately seeking to stop the war threatening to break between the Southern territory and the old Northern kingdoms that control it—a war in which Athan’s father is determined to play a role. As diplomatic ties manage to just barely hold, the two teens struggle to remain loyal to their families and each other as they learn that war is not as black and white as they’ve been raised to believe.


In this reimagining of Europe’s world wars, Joanna Hathaway delivers a novel of court intrigue and action-packed military adventure. Dark of the West is a heart-pounding romp that will leave the reader wanting more.”Melissa de la Cruz, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Airplane battles, revolutions, palace intrigue, star-crossed love, feuds spanning generations. This story’s scope is ambitious, a world unto itself, yet Hathaway wields the narrative with powerful precision. Dark of the West is a debut to be reckoned with.” Ryan Graudin, author of the Wolf By Wolf duology


JOANNA HATHAWAY is an avid storyteller and history buff whose writing is inspired by her great-grandfather's participation in WWI. She loves traveling the globe, flying in airplanes, and is forever a “horse girl.” Born in MontrĂ©al, Canada, Hathaway now resides in Minnesota. Dark of the West is her debut novel.
