Dread the Harvest Moon // Book Blitz

Text is Book Blitz October 13th, TBR and Beyond Tours, alongside a cover of the book.

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to be participating in a book blitz for Dread the Harvest Moon thanks to TBR and Beyond Tours! Please check out the other blogs that are posting today.

I’ve been wanting to read Sarah Glenn Marsh’s books for a v long time now! You might have heard me mentioning Reign of the Fallen on my blog around bisexual visibility day.

Dread the Harvest Moon is a queer (OwnVoices) companion novel to Fear the Drowning Deep, and I am so excited for it. The book also has the perfect vibes for an autumnal and Halloween read, so it’s the perfect time for a release! Also it has faeries in, and we all know how much I love books with those tricky creatures. Basically, hello, this book was written for me.

Book cover for Dread the Harvest Moon by Sarah Glenn Marsh

A companion novel to Fear the Drowning Deep, an NPR Great Read of 2016.

Three tasks. Two worlds. One deadly queen.

Always follow the rules.

That’s what seventeen-year-old barmaid Liss Corkill does. She’s never cursed or kissed a boy, and until two years ago, when a mythical serpent kidnapped her, she was never late to anything. She knows that if she were like her free-spirited older sister Bridey who sailed to America just before the Great War, her mother would be devastated. Liss is determined to be what everyone expects, even if that means giving up her dreams.

Unless the faeries make you break them.

When Liss accidentally interferes in a fairy queen’s quest for true love, she’s pulled into the vast and dangerous world of Un-Mann, a magical realm as old as the Isle of Man itself. As punishment for her mistake, Liss must complete three tasks for the queen by the night of the Great Harvest Moonlight, the fairies’ biggest yearly celebration.

Or you find something worth dying for.

Liss’s attempts to complete her tasks are met with constant misfortune, as if someone doesn’t want her to win. But she has powerful friends: the town witch, Morag, and her sister’s best friend, Cat, who she’s secretly falling for as they hunt sea monsters by night to protect their home. Sensing a need for inspiration as the final gruesome task draws near, the queen marks Liss’s little sister for death unless Liss succeeds.

Her sister. Her town. Her dreams. If she can’t own who she is and make some new rules, Liss will lose it all.
