Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soria
It is set to be released on October 9, 2018, by Amulet.
I have her debut novel, Iron Cast. I still haven’t read it but I have heard pretty much positive reviews. I cannot wait to get this book and I can marathon read her novels. I don’t think I ever read a book about prophecies that aren’t Harry Potter. I’m excited to see where the novel would go.
I am in love with this cover. Look at the details! The colors give its dark tone – it’s making me think the novel itself is going to be dark. I love the typography. It just works. I am wondering what texture it would be – glossy, stain? Embossing? Is it going to be shiny all over, or just the skull? Can’t wait to find out.
In the city of Eldra, people are ruled by ancient prophecies. For centuries, the high council has stayed in power by virtue of the prophecies of the elder seers. After the last infallible prophecy came to pass, growing unrest led to murders and an eventual rebellion that raged for more than a decade.
In the present day, Cassa, the orphaned daughter of rebels, is determined to fight back against the high council, which governs Eldra from behind the walls of the citadel. Her only allies are no-nonsense Alys, easygoing Evander, and perpetually underestimated Newt, and Cassa struggles to come to terms with the legacy of rebellion her dead parents have left her — and the fear that she may be inadequate to shoulder the burden. But by the time Cassa and her friends uncover the mystery of the final infallible prophecy, it may be too late to save the city — or themselves.
