For a long time, Jennifer Freitag has dazzled us with bits and pieces of intriguing and mysterious works-in-progress over at her excellent blog, The Penslayer. This autumn, we will finally get to experience one of them in full:
~ * ~The fate of Plenilune hangs on the election of the Overlord, for which Rupert de la Mare and his brother are the only contenders, but when Rupert’s unwilling bride-to-be uncovers his plot to murder his brother, the conflict explodes into civil war.
To assure the minds of the lord-electors of Plenilune that he has some capacity for humanity, Rupert de la Mare has been asked to woo and win a lady before he can become the Overlord, and he will do it—even if he has to kidnap her.
En route to Naples to catch a suitor, Margaret Coventry was not expecting a suitor to catch her.
~ * ~Plenilune is the first in a planned series of fantasy novels, and it will be released on October 20th. I'm excited about this release, in part because I am going to be doing the ebook formatting for it—which makes me an advance reader by default. I haven't read a fantasy novel in years, but I am decidedly intrigued by this series, owing to those stunning snippets of Jenny's writing I mentioned above. So mark your calendars, and in the meantime you can add Plenilune to your to-read shelf on Goodreads right here.
