It has been a busy couple of weeks here at Chez LaFevers. His Fair Assassin Two is due to my editor Monday morning and I am waaaay farther from the end than I would like to be.

But! There has been lots of cool news and many good things happening. First, GRAVE MERCY received its third starred review from PW! My favorite bit:

“Rich in historical detail, well-realized characters, political machinations, and enticingly prickly scenes between Ismae and Duval, LaFevers’s complex tale incorporates magic both sparingly and subtly.”

Heh. Enticingly prickly. I like that.

We also learned that it also made #3 on the Spring 2012 Indie Kids Next List! (Thank you, thank you Indie booksellers!!) And boy, there are so many amazing books on that full list that I can’t wait to read!

And lastly, I can share the UK cover. It is mostly the same as the US cover, but they’ve made a few subtle changes. Not just the font—although I do love the font they used—but also in terms of lighting and shadows.

Hello, Natalia!

Isn’t that an elegant font? (Although I will confess to being a bit of a font FIEND.) I so hope you enjoy the book!

I love the subtle changes. The font, swirls and lighting. Both US and UK versions are gorgeous. Can’t wait to read it!
