When I was approached to create this FURYBORN Blood Queen / Sun Queen book trailer series by the amazing team at Sourcebooks Fire, my inner fantasy fanatic squeeeeeed, and I Unicorn-leaped at the chance.
My simple visual approach was to paint the Blood Queen in reds and silvers, and for the Sun Queen to be depicted in greens and golds – opposite sides of the color and metals spectrums.
I also felt like these characters needed to be more connected than opposite, so you’ll see parallels along with the differences in each video.
The music on each is from the same bed, but the Blood Queen is more dark, and the Sun Queen more optimistic. Once you’ve finished this trailer, have a look at the Sun Queen and spot their connections!

“Truly not to be missed…”—Kendare Blake, #1 New York Times bestselling author
The stunningly original, must-read fantasy of 2018 follows two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world…or doom it.
When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and a queen of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed…unless the trials kill her first.
One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable—until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire’s heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.
As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world—and of each other.
