Title: THE WISH GRANTER
Author: C.J. Readwine
Pub. Date: February 14, 2017
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Pages: 432
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
An epic fantasy inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, about a bastard princess who must take on an evil fae to save her brother’s soul, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Shadow Queen.


The world has turned upside down for Thad and Ari Glavan, the bastard twins of SĂșndraille’s king. Their mother was murdered. The royal family died mysteriously. And now Thad sits on the throne of a kingdom whose streets are suddenly overrun with violence that he can’t stop.

Growing up ignored by the nobility, Ari never wanted to be a proper princess. And when Thad suddenly starts training Ari to take his place, she realizes that her brother’s ascension to the throne wasn’t fate. It was the work of a Wish Granter named Alistair Teague, who tricked Thad into wishing away both the safety of his people and his soul in exchange for the crown.

So Ari recruits the help of Thad’s enigmatic new weapons master, Sebastian Vaughn, to teach her how to fight Teague. With secret ties to Teague’s criminal empire, Sebastian might just hold the key to discovering Alistair’s weaknesses, saving Ari’s brother—and herself.

But Teague is ruthless and more than ready to destroy anyone who dares stand in his way—and now he has his sights set on the princess. And if Ari can’t outwit him, she’ll lose Sebastian, her brother...and her soul. 

Now on to the post!


THE WISH GRANTER Pinterest Board


Pinterest is one of the most effective tools for me before I actually start putting words down on paper. I spend several months worldbuilding, and as I figure out things like agriculture, customs, architecture, clothing, and food, I hunt through Google images to find pictures that come close to what’s in my head. You can find my entire Wish Granter Pinterest board here https://www.pinterest.com/cjredwine/the-wish-granter/ but I’ll share a few of my favorites with you.

Of course this image spoke to me! This is the foundational philosophy for most systems of magic in fantasy novels, but it’s also very specific to Mr. Gold on Once Upon a Time. In THE WISH GRANTER, Alistair Teague is the Rumpelstiltskin character, and he is a Faustian villain who trades wishes for favors, influence, and souls.


This looks like a walkway in the Sundraille palace, which is wide and open to the elements so that it can catch the sea breezes.


This is how I imagine the city of Kosim Thalas. I based the architecture off of pictures of Greece.

Terrifying shape-shifters from the fae isle of Llorenyae.


Ari loves to bake, and loves to eat delicious food. Chocolate cake is one of her specialties.

Beware signing a contract with the Wish Granter. He’ll grant you the deepest wish of your heart, but in ten years, he’ll return for your soul.
