First Look: Cover Reveal for CHANTRESS by Amy Butler Greenfield + ARC Giveaway

It’s time for yet another cover reveal! Today, I’m excited to bring to you the gorgeous cover for CHANTRESS by Amy Butler Greenfield (Simon & Schuster, May 2013) Scroll down to read the swoon-worthy synopsis, check out the incredibly beautiful cover, and enter to win an ARC!

Sing and the darkness will find you.

Shipwrecked on an island seven years ago, Lucy has been warned she must never sing, or disaster will strike. But on All Hallows Eve, Lucy hears tantalizing music in the air. When she sings it, she unlocks a terrible secret: She is a Chantress, a spell-singer, brought to the island not by shipwreck but by a desperate enchantment gone wrong.

Her song lands her back in England—and in mortal peril, for the kingdom lies in the cruel grasp of a powerful Lord Protector and his mind-reading hunters, the Shadowgrims. The Protector has killed all Chantresses, for they alone can destroy the Shadowgrims. Only Lucy has survived.

In terrible danger, Lucy takes shelter with Nat, a spy who turns her heart upside-down. Nat has been working with his fellow scholars of the Invisible College to overthrow the Lord Protector, and they have long hoped to find a living Chantress to help them. But Lucy is completely untrained, and Nat deeply distrusts her magic. If Lucy cannot master the songspells, how long can she even stay alive?

Beguiling and lyrical, dangerous and romantic, Chantress will capture readers in a spell they won’t want to break.

Amy Butler Greenfield was a grad student in history when she gave into temptation and became a writer. She loves music, romantic adventure, strange science, alternate history and twisty plots, which explains how she came to write her first YA novel, Chantress. Born in Philadelphia, Amy met and married and Englishman. She now lives with her family in England, where she writes, reads, and bakes double-dark-chocolate cake.

And now for the cover! What do you think?? I, for one, am IN LOVE. (Click to enlarge)

    I so wish that Amazon would let you put this on your wishlist or at least to send a reminder as soon as they add. (grumble, grumble, grumble)
    Seems to me if the ISBN was already assigned they could.
    I love the sound of this and for sure don't want to miss it.
