Witchlight summary reveal!
And the Illumicrate edition of The Hunting Moon!
Two awesome things are happening today.
One, the gorgeous (I mean gorgeous) cover for the Illumicrate edition of The Hunting Moon is getting revealed online—and you all can see it right here before the rest of the world.
Once again, Michaela Alcaino has absolutely exceeded all expectations, taking the hummingbird motif to another level.
And once again, she has made the naked book even more beautiful somehow. 😭 Just as The Luminaries casing was made to look like an in-world tome (the Nightmare Compendium), so is The Hunting Moon’s casing! But you’ll have to read the book to learn what exactly Understanding Sources is all about!
And also like before, Kerby Rosanes has brought Winnie’s drawings and sketches to life (those sketches will be in the standard UK edition too!). We’ve got more nightmares…and also some Diana-related illustrations on the way. 😏
Here’s a bit more information on the edition:
This edition is priced at £23 + shipping (and VAT if applicable). This edition comes under Illumicrates ‘Book Only’ shipping category, and our shipping rates can be viewed at illumicrate.com/shipping-rates. It is expected to ship in October/November.
General Sale begins 28 September at 3pm BST. We will be holding a presale for active Illumicrate subscribers and anyone who ordered the November 2022 “Some Kind of Monster” box or book only. An an email with presale details will be sent out on 20 September. (The presale will not be on this date.)
All copies will be signed by ME! I am signing tip-ins right now for these beauties.
There is an EXTRA JAY AND WINNIE SCENE AT THE END. It is exclusive to this edition—I wrote it just for Daphne and her incredible team because I love them so much and want to continue to support all that Illumicrate and DaphnePress are doing. 🥰
What do you all think?! It’s going to look so beautiful next to The Luminaries. I can’t wait to hold it in my hands!
As promised, I also have the summary for Witchlight all shiny and fresh to share with you! This rolled out to retailers over the weekend, so it’s OFFICIAL. The title and summary are now live and public.
Get your theorizing caps on, my friends!
The highly-anticipated finale in Susan Dennard's New York Times bestselling Witchlands series.
Paths converge and prophecies unfold as Safi and Iseult—the legendary Cahr Awen—fight their way across the Witchlands to heal the final Origin Well. With ancient figures rising from the past, the Raider King’s armies gathering for war, and the magic at the heart of everything dying too fast, the entire world is now on the brink of collapse.
But when Safi and Iseult reach the Air Well with the Bloodwitch Aeduan at their side, they discover too late that Eridysi's Lament is not the prophecy they thought it was—and their journeys are only just beginning.
You may notice not all the characters are mentioned here—that is intentional! That whole “paths converge” part is filled with lots of surprises I don’t want to spoil at all in the summary.
And you shall all understand soon enough. 😌
As always, thanks for reading, DenNerds! I’ll have more goodies for you soon! 😘
