Cover Reveal: Shadows on the Moon - Zoe Marriott

Last week I shared the cover for Zoe Marriott's upcoming novel Barefoot in the Wind (you can read that post HERE) and at the time I mentioned that Shadows on the Moon, another story set in the same world, was getting a makeover too. Now, Shadows on the Moon is one of my favourite novels so as soon as I found out that the new edition will contain extra content (including poetry and a short story that is like an extra epilogue to the original one!) I knew I'd be buying a copy for my shelves but now I've seen the gorgeous new cover I'm even more sold on the idea!

Just look at that beauty! Isn't it gorgeous? If you love fantasy and you love fairytale retellings then you NEED to read this book. It may be based on Cinderella but Suzame is a fierce young woman who sets out to get revenge on the people who wronged her and her family. She isn't the kind of girl who is going to sit around and wait for a prince to save her and she has it all planned out!

I have so much adoration for this book - it's one of the stories that I regularly put into stranger's hands when I'm browsing in bookstores! - and I'm really excited that it's being rebranded to hopefully be picked up by a whole new audience. In case you missed my original review of this book you can find it HERE.

Just in case you're curious about the old cover I thought I'd share that here too:

Old Cover VS New Cover

Which one do you prefer? I do think the original cover is beautiful but I think the new version is much more modern and I love the bright pops of colour from the flowers in Suzame's hair. I love the story so much that it'll be one of the rare books I have multiple copies of on my shelves though!


  1. Oh wow - really loving this new cover! I have to agree, although I have a signed copy of the old one, I'm definitely going to have to add this new version to my shelves. Although how I'll explain to the other half why I need the same book twice... that's going to be difficult lol

    1. Isn't it beautiful! There aren't many books I'll buy duplicates for but this will be one of them LOL
