MADLY by Amy Alward Cover Reveal and Giveaway

I featured MADLY by the fabulous Amy Alward as my WoW pick a while back, and today, I’m thrilled to reveal the new and gorgeous cover for Amy’s latest, coming soon from Simon & Schuster. It’s lush, modern, and something I’d definitely want to have on my shelves. Read on for the synopsis, then feast your eyes on the cover! And enter to win a copy for yourself.

Samantha Kemi comes from a long line of old-school alchemists, which who have fallen on hard times.

When thoroughly modern Princess Evelyn is poisoned by a positively ancient love potion, the royals organize a quest for an antidote.

Winning this quest will revive Sam’s family’s reputation. And soon Sam is traveling the world for the rarest ingredients, venturing deep into magical forests and frozen tundras, facing death at every turn.

Sam’s greatest threat? Zain Aster, her foremost opponent on the hunt. Rumor has it he was the intended recipient of the princess’s love potion. With that smile, it’s not hard to see why. . . .

Falling for Zain is a terrible idea. So why can’t Sam get him out of her mind? Is this magic at work?

    I didn’t know that Madly was getting a new cover. I’m kinda sad because I loved the old cover. But this one is pretty as well :)

    I surprisingly like the pink! I mostly like the cover, but since I haven’t read the book I can’t tell if the typography/illustrations are too modern or not. It seems like it also could’ve looked really good with more antiquated typography.

    I like the colors of the cover but I am not sure the illustration of the heart and arrows aren’t too modern, it feels for me too much contemporary while the blurb shows a fantasy. Well I am interested by the blurb and September seems way too long now.
