Cover Reveal: Castle of Sighs by Jennifer Murgia

The Forest of Whispers was one of the best books I've read last year. I thought it was only a standalone and was sad that the book left the ending at that.  But wonder of wonders, I found out that there's going to be a sequel!
I am so excited to share the cover of Castle of Sighs, the sequel to Jennifer Murgia's excellent The Forest of Whispers.


Castle of Sighs 
Forest of Whispers #2

Expected publication: September 15, 2015
Some secrets cannot be kept—in life or in death. 

Months have passed since Rune has heard a single whisper from her long-dead mother, the great witch of Bavaria. But the absence of one evil has only made room for another. 

After rightfully inheriting her ancestral home, Pyrmont Castle, Rune settles into a quiet life taking care of two orphans left in the wake of the terrible witch hunt that claimed dozens of lives in the nearby village. As the days grow colder, the castle’s secrets beckon and Rune finds herself roaming where no one has set foot in a long time. In the bowels of the fortress is a locked room full of memories that hang like cobwebs—shelves stacked with jars, strange specimens, putrid liquids, and scrolls of spells. Rune is undeniably drawn to what she finds there, and she begins to dabble in the possibilities of magic, hoping to find a cure for the strangeness overwhelming the castle. 

As secrets unspool, the delicate thread of Rune’s world is threatened when she realizes the key may lie in the dark forest she once called home and the boy she thought she knew.
