Cover Reveal: 'The Candy Shop War: Carnival Quest' By Brandon Mull

I always thought and hoped that Brandon Mull's The Candy Shop War series will be a trilogy. As time went by this hope seemed to fade and after nearly a decade I almost totally let go of the idea. That was until he finished and published the last book in his most recent series called Dragonwatch, which in turn a follow-up series to Fablehaven.

What a joyful day was that for me when he announced that he's returning to the The Candy Shop War world with a third and final book (hopefully not) which eventually will then be called Carnival Quest. And so a couple of months later the official synopsis and cover have been revealed for your pleasure.

Check out the official cover of The Candy Shop War: Carnival Quest by Brandon Mull.

The long-awaited finale to Brandon Mull’s best-selling series where magical candies give kids superpowers to fight evil magicians.

The Blue Falcons is a secret kid’s club that fights against a family of villainous magicians. Using an impressive arsenal of magical candy—including Moon Rocks, which allows someone to jump super high, and Ironhides that make someone nearly invulnerable—Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon defeated Belinda White, a sinister candy shop owner who almost seized control of their town, and her brother, Jonas White, a maniacal arcade operator who tried to turn the planet into his personal puppet.

Now, the Blue Falcons must battle the third sibling—Camilla, who has brought the Dreams and Screams International Carnival to their town of Colson, California.

Rumors are spreading about the new carnival. Those who visit feel compelled to return. Some who enter the labyrinthine Funhouse disappear for days. And the Big Top is said to bewitch audience members.

The Blue Falcons think they know who is responsible and are ready to fight, but the carnival forbids outside magic. Without their favorite enchanted treats, how can they salvage their sixth-grade year, rescue their families, and save their town?

When nightmares and weird dreams start to plague everyone who has visited the carnival, the worlds of magic and reality are both endangered. With the help of a new magical enforcer, the Blue Falcons will need to learn to use the magic of the carnival against itself, including a host of new magical carnival candies, and tap into the power of their own dreams to battle their greatest adversary yet.

The Candy Shop War: Carnival Quest by Brandon Mull will be released on March 14, 2023.
