I’m excited to share with you today Victoria McCombs’ debut novel THE STORYTELLER’S DAUGHTER. A YA Fantasy inspired by fairytales including the famous Rumplestiltskin, this is a book I’m really excited to read! And how beautiful is this cover?? Keep reading this post to find out more about the book and author plus a fun guest post!
(Yes I know that technically this tour was cancelled as The FFBC decided to shut its doors but I don’t see why that means I can’t go forwards with a promo post to help out Victoria McCombs’ debut. ♥ I even reached out to Victoria herself and she agreed to write a guest post! I’m not sure about the other bloggers who signed up but the banner is linked to the original tour schedule so feel free to check it out and see if there may be more support out there for this book!)
His shadowed face lit by flames,
Rumpelstiltskin is my name…
For as long as anyone can remember, every child in Westfallen has been born with a Gift, and these Gifts defined them.
Then Cosette is born, Giftless.
An attempt to hide her misfortune brings her before the King, who entraps her to use her Gift as a pawn in his war.
Caught in a lie, Cosette desperately searches for a power strong enough to free her. Intrigued by whispers of an old king and a dark curse, she calls upon Rumpelstiltskin and finds him trapped in a magic deeper than she bargained for. Now, Cosette must fight to reclaim her freedom from the King and break Rumpel’s curse. When time runs out, she’ll lose more than her heart. She’ll lose her life.
The Guest Post
Some of the things I love most in this world are peppermint hot chocolate, golﬁng dates, Jesus, and game nights with family. And of course, books.
Fairytales were my ﬁrst love. I became obsessed with the idea that if one was brave enough, they could defeat dragons, and that true love was real. I met my true love in college, and together we raise our two boys. I have my dad to thank for teaching me to love writing, and my mom to thank for allowing us to keep a wall of medieval weapons in the house, which curated my love for that time period. My dream is to write vivid worlds and charming characters that will leave an imprint on my readers hearts, the way that so many books have done for me
