I'm so excited to be a part of the official cover reveal for Castle of Sighs, the sequel to the bewitchingly beautiful YA historical fantasy Forest of Whispers, by Jennifer Murgia.

I've been sharing teaser countdown images on Twitter ( @michellesminion ) for the past 10 days, and as promised, I will put them all in this post (at the end) just in case anyone wanted to see them or missed one. There are quotes and snippets from Castle of Sighs in each image.

So, I guess you're here for a reason, so ...

Description from Goodreads: 
(I made one slight modification to remove a spoiler for book one. It's spoiler free now)

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. 

Rune settles into a quiet life at Pyrmont Castle, 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. pretty!
