*HYPERVENTILATING*
SEPTEMBER 14, 2021??????
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
WE HAVE A TITLE.
AND A RELEASE DATE. THERE’S HOPE.

AND A COVER.

I've seen people complaining about the cover, but not gonna lie, I kinda like it.
Sure I'm annoyed that it doesn't match the first book, but it's still a nice cover.

I wait not so patiently for this book to be released.

the covers don't even remotely match, and considering that (as far as I am aware) this is a duology, I'm mad

edit: they changed the first cover too 🙃

I feel like I spend half my life railing against cover changes.

But seriously publishers, WHY DO YOU DO THIS. The cover for the first book was SO nice. This is...so not.
