This post is a little different than normal, which is entirely exciting! I love having new content to post and this one is so fun! If you’ve been following any of my social media accounts then you will know how much I love Nicki Pau Preto and her incredible book Crown of Feathers! Next year the sequel to Crown of Feathers releases and I am here to show you the gorgeous cover for Heart of Flames!
But first, a little about Nicki:
Nicki is a YA fantasy author living just outside Toronto, Canada. After getting a degree in visual arts, a masters in art history, and a diploma in graphic design, Nicki discovered two things: she loves to escape the real world, and she isn’t interested in a regular 9-5 life. Luckily, her chosen career covers both.
If you would like to support Nicki by purchasing a copy of Crown of Feathers you can do so here:
There are other ways to support Nicki as well! Check out Crown of Feathers from your local library, or if they don’t have it then request they get a copy! Use Libby or Overdrive and read the ebook or listen to the audiobook! Audible also has the audiobook. All of these outlets give you the opportunity to enjoy the book and still supports Nicki so that she can continue writing 🔥
Below you will find the synopsis for Heart of Flames, BEWARE, spoilers ahead if you have not read Crown of Feathers!
Veronyka, Tristan, and Sev must stop the advancing empire from destroying the Phoenix Riders in this fiery sequel to Crown of Feathers, which #1 New York Times bestselling author Kendare Blake calls “absolutely unforgettable!”
You are a daughter of queens.
The world is balanced on the edge of a knife, and war is almost certain between the empire and the Phoenix Riders.
Like Nefyra before you, your life will be a trial by fire.
Veronyka finally got her wish to join the Riders, but while she’s supposed to be in training, all she really wants to do is fly out to defend the villages of Pyra from the advancing empire. Tristan has been promoted to Master Rider, but he has very different ideas about the best way to protect their people than his father, the commander. Sev has been sent to spy on the empire, but maintaining his cover may force him to fight on the wrong side of the war. And Veronyka’s sister, Val, is determined to regain the empire she lost—even if it means inciting the war herself.
Such is your inheritance. A name. A legacy. An empire in ruin.
As tensions reach a boiling point, the characters all find themselves drawn together into a fight that will shape the course of the empire—and determine the future of the Phoenix Riders. Each must decide how far they’re willing to go—and what they’re willing to lose in the process.
I pray you are able to pass through the flames.

Without further ado, here is the GORGEOUS cover of Heart of Flames!
ISN’T IT STUNNING? I LEGIT DON’T HAVE WORDS FOR THIS MARVEL. As much as I love the cover of Crown of Feathers I really like this one because we get to see more of Veronyka while still getting a massive dose of Phoenix!
This is the entire wrap! I love that these books have entire scenes wrapped around the book. I feel this is something that isn’t done as often anymore and makes it incredibly special. I hope you love this cover as much as I do!
