FROZEN REIGN by Kathryn Purdie / Cover Reveal & Giveaway! #FrozenReign #BurningGlassSeries

It's finally here! I am so thrilled to team up with Kathryn Purdie to help her reveal the STUNNING cover for FROZEN REIGN. This is the last book in her Burning Glass series, which will be released on November 6th, 2018. Be sure to read Kathryn's thoughts on her cover and don't forget to enter to win the giveaway at the bottom of this post! 


What a stunning cover! I don't know what it is about the crown of flowers, but I absolutely love it. I have a feeling this cover is deceiving. It might have the look of grace w/ the crown of flowers, but there's something fierce about it too. This is another stunning series cover. What do you guys think about this cover? 

Check out the series cover all together: 

Just, WOW! These covers are enticing. I love how they look all together. I like how they compliment each other, yet stand alone as well. I have no shame in admitting that I would pick up this series based on the covers alone. What do you guys think? What's your favorite cover? 


My thoughts on the cover (includes some minor spoilers for those who haven’t read the series):

I adore this cover! It perfectly symbolizes Sonya’s ongoing struggle between craving power and feeling profound empathy as an Auraseer. Those of you who have read the first two books in the BURNING GLASS series will know why Sonya’s “reign” is now frozen, but this title also applies to Valko, who is still fighting to reclaim his crown, and Anton, who still hasn’t established a peaceful democracy in Riaznin. There is also snow in the book, so the word “frozen” is literal in some scenes. ;-)

My favorite aspect of this cover is how the crown of blossoms is so unexpected when paired with the words “frozen” and “reign,” so I hope that element of intrigue draws many readers to pick up the book.

Fun fact: several blossom crowns are mentioned in both CRYSTAL BLADE and FROZEN REIGN, and they all have a lot of significance to Sonya and symbolism for where she’s at in her internal journey.

I hope you all love FROZEN REIGN! It was surreal and wonderful and challenging and rewarding to write the final book in my debut trilogy. I can tell you this story involves a journey to a faraway castle, two new female characters, higher stakes, greater danger, and one of my favorite romantic scenes ever. <3 br="">

Fear reigns in Riaznin.

Former emperor Valko has kidnapped the youngest Auraseer and provoked a civil war. Now, he’s hunting his brother, Anton, and threatening the people Sonya holds most dear.

With her empathic powers gone, Sonya doesn’t know how to protect the people she loves and the nation she helped free. She can’t sense who to trust. She can’t track Valko. She can’t tell if her beloved Anton is safe.

She only knows danger is coming. And there’s nothing she can do to stop it.

When Sonya hears a tale of an Esten Auraseer with a mysterious ability to heal, suddenly her situation doesn’t feel as impossible as it once did. But without her powers, finding the legendary Auraseer will be dangerous. And if she doesn’t succeed, the peace she sacrificed so much to achieve will be shattered forever.

In this pulse-pounding finale to the New York Times bestselling series, Sonya must learn how to find her true strength—before the power she once saw as a curse is lost to her for good.



Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel—both physically and emotionally—a gift she’s kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.

Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left in the world who still trust her.

But Sonya’s power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can’t decipher when other people’s impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.

As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust—and which to betray.

BURNING GLASS is debut author Kathryn Purdie’s stunning tale of dangerous magic, heart-rending romance, and the hard-won courage it takes to let go. 


The peace is unsustainable.

Sonya and Anton may have brought about a revolution, but can they protect their homeland—and their love—with so many forces threatening to tear them apart?

The empire has fallen, Valko faces trial, and Sonya is finally free from her fate as Sovereign Auraseer. But Sonya's expanding abilities are just as unstable as the new government of Riaznin—and her relationship with Anton. Not only can she feel the emotions of others but, unlike other Auraseers, she's learned to make others feel her emotions as well. And Sonya isn't immune to dark temptations.

Now, as Sonya fights to contain her own darkness, she senses a new evil lurking in the shadows of the palace. Someone from Sonya's past has returned. And that someone won't be satisfied until Sonya pays for the mistakes she's made.
