Lion Forge Reveals the Release Date and Cover for Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu’s Mooncakes
Following this past weekend’s American Library Association Midwinter conference in Seattle, WA, Lion Forge has announced Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu’s Mooncakes will be released in print for the first time in October of 2019. The series is a queer Chinese-America fantasy romance.
Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.
One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.
Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.
Mooncakes began online in 2015 and has been updated on the first and fifteenth of each month since. Lion Forge first announced its publication in 2017, and today reveals both this much anticipated collection’s brand-new cover and publication date of October 2, 2019 in comic shops, and October 15 in bookstores. Mooncakes will resume online on February 14, with pages uploaded weekly ahead of the print release this fall.
