First, let's get the overused but utterly true pun out of the way: just look at The Beautiful cover 😂 Funny, right!? No.
Now, let's get serious. I'm hear to warn y'all that this is a Vampire conspiracy and the bloodsucking terrors of the night are back to take over. Yes. We. Are. Doomed. It's not a coincidence that Jay Kristoff is also publishing a vampire series in 2020, nope.

Fantasy, set in New Orleans in 1872, but featuring vampires, and a city underground, and an investigation into underground murders, and maybe some mysterious protagonist backstory, aka all the things I’m here for at all times

FLAME IN THE MIST will be released on 5.16.17.
