At long last, over a year since this book breathed its first words, the cover for A Bird in the Snow has arrived. I love it so much, even more than the cover for A Wolf's Rose!
But first, because I am cruel, let's have the blurb for this book:
Can even the worst mistakes be forgiven?
Ean Cochall has lived in the wilderness for two years, providing for the needy by day and assassinating rogues by night. It's all in pursuit of one thing: justice. So when he's approached by a mysterious figure and asked to kill a fae accused of crimes against the Gwyns, he readily accepts.
Murrin has fled to the wilderness to hide from someone who seeks her life. She has the name of a fey who can protect her: Ean Cochall, leader of the outlaw band the Green Company. What she doesn't know is that Ean already knows about her--and he was just hired to kill her.
As dark secrets come to light and old ghosts rise from the dead, will Ean uncover the truth? Or will his own mistakes come back to haunt him, making justice something not even he wants to achieve?

The cover for A Bird in the Snow.
Simply put, it's beautiful. I absolutely adore the colors of the sky; it gives off such a Northern Lights vibe. The whole thing suits the story so well. And Ean and Murrin... EEP! To say I am excited is a serious understatement. I cannot wait to hold this in my hands!
