As most die-hard bookies know, this is the time of year that The Maker usually drops the first chapter of the new book in our Christmas stocking.
After recent confirmation that we wouldn’t be getting a sneaky peek at the final book, Dead Ever After, we’d resigned ourselves to a lump of coal in our stocking this year.
AND THEN, SANTA CAME EARLY!
This is the end paper for Dead Ever After (for those who need a quick 101, an endpaper is an illustration or design on the “blank” pages before or after the text).
Every suitor in animal form, except Eric.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, VIKING HORDES!
UPDATE: Sookie reader Z.C at Amazon drew our attention to another illustration by the artist, Lisa Desimini in the children’s book section of her website. This cover is for her children’s book, “Sun and Moon – A Giant Love Story.” The synopsis for the book describes “the common fear of being alone in the world, and the universal longing to find one’s other half.”
From the Sun and Moon title, to the layout of the artwork, to the theme of the story you must admit there are some remarkable similarities.
