Cover reveal: Shadowplay by Laura Lam

I am in absolute love with the cover I’m revealing on today’s cover reveal post. 

Sometime ago, I read and reviewed Laura Lam’s Pantomime, a mesmerizing and incredibly unique YA fantasy novel that features Micah Grey, a character that breaks all the moulds in YA (can’t really say more without spoiling things for those who haven’t read it yet – although, to give you a clue, the cover of both Pantomime and Shadowplay cleverly say more than what you see ), an incredible story line and a wondrous and magical world where plot twists and turns are just waiting for you around every little corner.

In today’s post, I’m revealing the cover for Shadowplay – the sequel to Pantomime. I can without a doubt, say that it’s one of the most beautiful covers I’ve seen this year so far, and it’s definitely amplifying my excitement for when the book is finally published, which is in January 2014. 

Sigh. We have to wait for just under 3 months? Oh woe is us.

I’m sure it will be worth it though. I’m eager to see where Micah and Drystan’s journey will be taking them next.

For information about Pantomime, you can check out my review and add it to your Goodreads TBR. Laura also wrote a fabulous post on her book world, which I featured on my blog and that is definitely worth checking out.

And now, *drum roll please*…

Here’s the cover for Shadowplay, followed by the official synopsis. Gorgeous, isn’t it?


About Shadowplay


The circus lies behind Micah Grey in dust and ashes.

He and the white clown, Drystan, take refuge with the once-great magician, Jasper Maske. When Maske agrees to teach them his trade, his embittered rival challenges them to a duel which could decide all of their fates.

People also hunt both Micah and the person he was before the circus - the runaway daughter of a noble family. And Micah discovers there is magic and power in the world, far beyond the card tricks and illusions he's perfecting...

A tale of phantom wings, a clockwork hand, and the delicate unfurling of new love, Shadowplay continues Micah Grey’s extraordinary journey.

About Laura Lam
Laura Lam was raised near San Francisco, California, by two former Haight-Ashbury hippies.

Both of them encouraged her to finger-paint to her heart’s desire, colour outside of the lines, and consider the library a second home.

This led to an overabundance of daydreams.

She relocated to Scotland to be with her husband, whom she met on the internet when he insulted her taste in books. She almost blocked him but is glad she didn’t. At times she misses the sunshine.
