Kiki Hamilton revealed the cover of her debut YA novel, The Faerie Ring, yesterday on her blog!

Release Date: October 1, 2011 September 27, 2011
Publisher: Tor Teen / Macmillan

Summary (from Goodreads):
 London, December 1871
 

Orphaned and picking pockets in London’s Charing Cross station to support not only herself, but her ‘family’ of orphans, sixteen year-old Tiki steals the Queen’s ring and thinks she’s solved their problems. That is, until Rieker, a pickpocket from the North End, suspects her in the theft and tells her that the ring is really a reservoir that holds a truce between the British and Faerie courts.

When he warns her that the fey will do anything, including murder, to recover the ring, Tiki is unsure whether to believe him or not. To complicate matters, Rieker seems to know something about the unusual birthmark on Tiki’s wrist. But when Tiki and her family are threatened the game changes.

In a dazzling debut that takes you from the gritty slums of Victorian London to the glittering ballrooms of the Royal Palace to the menacing Otherworld, you won’t want to miss this thrilling tale of mystery, adventure and romance.

The Faerie Ring is another YA debut novel I'll definitely be having to keep my eye on! An original-sounding plot mixed in with the past, an element of faeries and a dash of romance... it sounds great! The Faerie Ring is the first in a new trilogy, but it looks like we have quite the wait in store for us since it doesn't come out for awhile...

Isn't the cover absolutely lovely? I love the focus on the ring and the light, vibrant colours they've used combined with the swirly font for the title which make everything appear so pretty!

  1. I love those curlicues on the title too, and the way the girl's face is out of focus in the background. I do like the concept of the theft of the ring being the catalyst for the story - it does sound like it could be a different spin on faeries, which would be welcome as there have been a few fey books that have all seemed quite similar to me.
