‘Evil Thing’ cover reveal
Regarding the art, Valentino says, “I am absolutely in love with this cover! As usual, Jeffrey Thomas did a beautiful job, but he really outdid himself this time. I feel he really captured Cruella’s spirit in this awesome cover.”
But what about the story itself?
“I am so excited for readers to learn about Cruella’s childhood, and her relationships with her family and her best friend Anita,” the author continues. “And I think readers will be surprised to learn about her connection to Perdita, amongst other exciting surprises.”
“This was such a fun story to write,” Valentino concludes. “Writing in Cruella’s voice, letting her tell her own story. It’s much more intimate than the other novels, darker, and decidedly more sassy! Just like our villain!”
It sounds like this will be quite different from other ones in the past — in quite a good way! If you’re interested in learning more about what to expect in Evil Thing, see the official synopsis below.
About ‘Evil Thing’ — Cruella’s story
Cruella De Vil is the perfect villain: stylish, witty, relentless…and possibly cursed.
From her lonely childhood, to her iconic fashion choices, to that fateful car crash (you know the one), Cruella tells all in this marvelous memoir of a woman doomed. Even the cruelest villains have best friends, true loves, and daring dreams. Now it’s Cruella’s turn to share hers.
This latest novel by the author of the wildly popular and darkly fascinating Villains series brings readers a tale told by the Evil Thing herself — a tale of the complicated bonds of female friendship, of mothers and daughters, and of burning, destructive desire.
After all, nothing is as simple as black and white.
This is book 7 in Serena Valentino’s wildly popular Villains series which reimagines classic Disney Villains and shares their dark and twisted backstories.
