I have a very special post for you all today—my first ever cover reveal and it happens to be for the wonderful Evelyn Skye. You may remember her fantasy duology, THE CROWN’S GAME and THE CROWN’S FATE. Her next book, CIRCLE OF THE SHADOWS is the first in a new series and it looks amazing.
Are you ready for this?
And from Evelyn herself…
“Isn’t it pretty??? I love it so much! The warriors are called taigas; they were inspired by ninja lore and yet are something quite different, which the cover artist, Ronan Le Fur, captured beautifully. And I love how the crystal palace echoes the castles on The Crown’s Game covers.”
So, what story lies inside this beautiful cover’s pages?
Here’s your 411: Sora can move as silently as a ghost and hurl throwing stars with lethal accuracy. Her gemina, Daemon, can win any physical fight blindfolded and with an arm tied behind his back. They are apprentice warriors of the Society of Taigas—marked by the gods to be trained in magic and the fighting arts to protect the kingdom of Kichona.
As their graduation approaches, Sora and Daemon look forward to proving themselves worthy of belonging to the elite group—but in a kingdom free of violence since the Blood Rift Rebellion many years ago, it’s been difficult to make their mark. So when Sora and Daemon encounter a strange camp of mysterious soldiers while on a standard scouting mission, they decide the only thing to do to help their kingdom is to infiltrate the group.Taking this risk will change Sora’s life forever—and lead her on a mission of deception that may fool everyone she’s ever loved.
Love, spies, and adventure abound as Sora and Daemon unravel a complex web of magic and secrets that might tear them—and the entire kingdom—apart.
