I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again: I love a good twist on a classic.
When it comes to today’s featured book, that twist is on a classic tale most of us know and love. With a new take on Rapunzel, Tamara Grantham’s The Witch’s Tower sounds like it’s going to be a wonderful read. I can’t wait to check it out.
In the meantime, we’ll all have to make do with taking a look at its new cover, instead. And I have to say, it looks almost as intriguing as the book’s premise does.
Before you check it out, though, head on over to Tamara’s Rafflecopter, where she and her publisher are giving away a $25 Amazon gift card.
Now, are you ready to take a look?
I’m not sure which part I like best–all those vines, the font, or the colours themselves. How about you?
About The Witch’s Tower
Gothel is a witch. Punished for the actions of her mother, her choice is simple: either she stands guard over Princess Rapunzel—or she dies. But just because a choice is easy doesn’t mean it’s pleasant. Protecting Rapunzel means watching as the princess lays trapped in a tower, bedridden by hair that is so long and heavy it’s slowly driving her insane. Gothel’s life has become one of imprisonment and solitude as well—until a prince and his handsome squire appear at the tower.
Only one object can cut Rapunzel’s hair and end the curse: a pair of magical shears. But the shears are guarded by the most terrifying witches in the land, who also happen to be Gothel’s aunts. As Gothel and the prince’s squire, Raj Talmund, work to form a plan, she finds herself more and more drawn to the mysterious young man from the Outerlands. Unfortunately, his destiny is far more dangerous than she wants to admit: to save a princess, he must kill the witch who’s been forced to guard her.
THE WITCH’S TOWER is the first in an inspired new series of fairy-tale retellings from award-winning fantasy author Tamara Grantham.
