Cover Crush: A River of Golden Bones by A.K. Mudford
I just love this cover so much, and you all see that bi-color coding, right? It’s not just my gaydar, cause the book is queer, and I see multiple pronoun usage for our MC. Love to see that in this adult fantasy romance! I can totally envision all the special editions of this book, and well it also has those hints of a Sleeping Beauty retelling so I know this book will reach it’s readers. This will be book one of a new adult fantasy romance series, or as the kids say, romantasy, and I hear it is a bit on the steamy side – and if you haven’t noticed, this new adult/adult fantasy genre is exploding in popularity and I am excited! So yeah, do the right thing and add this one to your holiday wishlist & TBR for the December 5th release!
Thank you to Harper Voyager for the advance copy!

A riveting, enchanting book in the all-new Golden Court romantasy trilogy--A River of Golden Bones begins a journey of self-discovery, romance, and adventure for a young heir as she/they comes out of hiding to save her sister from a malicious, powerful sorceress and her dangerous sleeping curse.
A sleeping curse. A fallen court. A secret twin.
Twins Calla and Briar have spent their entire lives hiding from the powerful sorceress who destroyed their kingdom...and from the humans who don't know they are Wolves. Each twin has their own purpose in life: Briar's is to marry the prince of an ally pack and save the Golden Court. Calla's purpose is to remain a secret, her twin's shadow . . . the backup plan.
No one knows who Calla truly is except for her childhood friend--and sister's betrothed--the distractingly handsome Prince Grae. But when Calla and Briar journey out of hiding for Briar's wedding, all of their well-made plans go awry. The evil sorceress is back with another sleeping curse for the last heir to the Golden Court.
Calla must step out of the shadows to save their, their kingdom, and their own legacy. Continuing to hide as a human and denying who she truly is, Calla embarks on a quest across the realm, discovering a whole world she never knew existed. Outside the confines of rigid Wolf society, Calla begins to wonder: who could she be if she dared to try?
Full of adventure, love, gender exploration, and self-discovery, A River of Golden Bones follows Calla's journey through treacherous Wolf kingdoms, monster-filled realms, and the depths of their own heart in this thrilling romantic fantasy.
