Leigh has an amazing Pinterest page for all her books. I didn’t google very many things for this book, but I did find some gorgeous pictures that I wanted to share from her Siege and Storm page. Check out Leigh’s Pinterest account for more gorgeous stuff.
Those dreamy blue eyes are definitely Mal!
I can’t embed it, but this picture is a gorgeous visual of The Bone Road. Seriously go check it out!

Two of these stories are companion folk tales and The Tailor is a short story from Genya’s point of view. I so want to read all of these right in order when the final book comes out! The links go to Goodreads if you want to add them.
