Queen of Thorns Cover Reveal

Thursdays Bite

a fantasy romance blog

It’s here! Book Five in my fantasy romance series, Tales of the Black Court, finally has a cover. SQUEE! And isn’t it hot! My fabulous cover artist, Viola Estrella of Estrella Cover Designs has done it again. I love the way she’s stayed with the essence of the entire series, and yet this cover is something new and different. It totally says ‘fantasy romance’ to me. And I’m especially thrilled because this book is the last one in this series arc, so it’s great to end this story line about the evil Black Queen on such a super high note. I hope you love it as much as I do.

Presenting:

Queen of Thorns: A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court. Book Five, Tales of the Black Court.

QueenOfThorns-600x900

When Thorn discovers her greatest secret will the man she’s fallen in love with turn on her? Or will he give up his life to protect her?

Ardan is on a quest: return to Prince Kian’s court with the head of the Black Queen—or lose everything. Including his life. But finding the elusive faery queen is proving difficult. And time is running out.

When Aeval wakes up the only thing she remembers is her name. But soon she realizes that even a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. So she becomes Thorn instead, setting off with the man who accidentally kisses her awake on a quest to find and kill the Black Queen.

As Ardan and Thorn travel through the magical lands of Underhill and learn to trust each other, it becomes more and more obvious to Thorn that she and the queen might share more than just a name.

When Ardan finds out that Thorn might be the queen he’s sworn to slay, will he kill the woman he’s starting to fall in love with? Or will Thorn take up the mantle of dark power and again become the Queen of the Black Court?

The Other Side of the Mirror

A Fantasy Tale of the Black Court

sneak peak

 

Her mother’s brave facade crumpled. “She didn’t make it through.”

Images of her baby sister flashed in her memory. Bree sitting in a colorful pen of balls at a fast-food restaurant, her baby face alight with glee. Bree and Cassie hidden under the covers with a flashlight, while Cassie sang protective nursery rhymes to her sister to drive away the nightmares. Bree holding out her hand to Trina when Trina’s parents had been murdered by the Queen and lisping, “You can sleep in my room, I don’t mind.”

A lump the size of the world settled in Cassie’s throat.

“Oh Mama…” There was nothing else to say. It was just the two of them now. And if they stayed here with no water or food, soon there would be no MacElvys left alive.

#

Stepping out from the shelter of the fairy circle was one of the hardest things Cassie had ever done. She looked out at the dark forbidding trees leaning in their threatening circle, swallowed hard, and raised her foot.

“Wait.” Theresa gripped Cassie’s sleeve and tugged her back before she could take that first step out of the guardian pansies. “What if we leave here and Bryanna comes through?”

The Dark Huntsman

A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court

sneak peak

 

She used her body, her anger, and her fear. Anger at the Faery Queen for the constant harassment and extermination of her family and her tribe. Fear of what came next, what might be riding on the coattails of the sunset.

Pulsing with power, she paced deeper and deeper into the labyrinth, static lifting her long black hair into a crackling wild nimbus. She pulled and twisted the vibrant orange and red of her anxiety into the alchemy of the earth’s brown and green energy, weaving them together into an invisible net.

Each measured step layered power into the fabric of her spell. Each movement of the athame directed the energy where it needed to go. Just as darkness dipped its toes into the valley, she turned the last curve into the double spiral’s center.

Her rage and fear coalesced into the final strands of the spell leaving her shaking and exhausted as the last of the afterglow faded from the sky, a stunning show of deep purple on grey. A sonorous quiet descended. No birds, no coyotes. Just the wind sending small trails of skittering leaves through the labyrinth. Prickles of anticipation trembled on her bare spine.

It would be here soon. It was coming fast. And it was coming for her.
