Today I’m super excited to bring you the exclusive cover reveal for THE FLAME IN THE MIST – a fantasy upper middle-grade/YA debut by Kit Grindstaff (Delacorte 2013). Scroll down to read the synopsis, check out the AWESOME cover, and enter to win some prizes from the author herself!
The sun never shines in the land of Anglavia. Its people live within a constant mist created by their rulers, the evil Agromond family. The Agromonds’ control is absolute; no one dares defy them. But things are about to change, for the youngest of them is not like the others…
Fiery-headed Jemma has always felt like the family misfit, and is increasingly disturbed by the dark goings-on at Agromond Castle. On the eve of her thirteenth birthday, Jemma discovers the reason why: She is not who she thinks she is, and the Agromonds have terrifying plans for her. In mortal danger, she must flee from the castle.
But saving her skin is just the first of Jemma’s ordeals. Ghosts and outcasts, a pair of crystals, a mysterious book, and an ancient prophecy gradually reveal the truth about her past, and proclaim a destiny far greater and more dangerous than any she could imagine.
With her trusted friend, Digby, and her two telepathic golden rats, Noodle and Pie, Jemma faces enemies both human and supernatural. But in the end, she and her untapped powers might be the only hope for a kingdom in peril.
Kit Grindstaff was born near London, and grew up in the rolling countryside of England. After a brush with pop stardom (under her maiden name, Hain) she moved to New York and embarked on her still-thriving career as a pop song writer.
Kit now lives with her husband in the rolling countryside of Pennsylvania. She is a member of the SCBWI. The Flame In The Mist is her first novel.
And now for the cover! What do you think? Isn’t it incredible??
