If you follow the Amazon link on that edition, however, you are still directed to a page that lists the actual publication date (November 5, 2019). I sort my future releases by publication date, so if that is an issue here, you can switch editions by hitting "All Editions" and then selecting a different one.

Isn't it crazy how I keep adding Kristen White's books to my tbr when I haven't read a single one? A little bit. But, hey! They all sound amazing! And I keep swearing that I'll find time to read them soon 😅

Also, White's personality? Love her! I think her sense of humor is just like mine. And yes, I'll keep adding her books to my tbr just because of that. I don't feel ashamed.

Kiersten is a Goddess and I love her and I’m so glad the book series she hinted at on her Elizabeth Frankenstein tour is coming out relatively soon. I’m hyped.

My fave Kiersten White is coming out with a new series reimagining Arthurian legend?? WHERE CAN I SIGN MY SOUL AWAY FOR THIS?!

The book gods have blessed us with these 2019 releases you guys 😭
Stephanie L (catteabooks)
Okay, Kiersten. I don't know how you'll be able to one up yourself from the perfection that was Lada in The Conqueror's Saga, but it's safe to say I'll be reading this come November and still be wondering how on earth you did it.

Oh look. Kiersten White writing more fan fiction again... After the utter trainwreck that was The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein this is an absolute no.
