Today I’m honored (okay, tickled pink) to be participating in the release of a super special story. Most of you probably know Hope Ann and are familiar with her Legends of Light— a series of nine novellas retelling fairytales based on the nine fruits of the spirit.
What most of you probably don’t know is that Hope has been my closest writing buddy and best friend for… going on three years now? I think? I’m bad with dates. 😛
Anyway, all that to say my special friend is releasing the fourth story in the series and for the first time I get to be part of the cover reveal. *grins*
(Also please ignore the fact that *coughs* I designed the cover because shhhh that’s not relevant. Let me be special here and help without stealing the stage.)
Now let’s hear from Hope Ann herself!
I’ll be honest with you.
I love all my covers for the Legends of Light series, but this is my favorite yet. I’ve been talking about The Stealthmaster’s Shadow for several months. Now it’s time to reveal the gorgeous cover designed by Kate Flournoy.
Now for the actual cover.
It’s ten confounded years since the war ended.
Ten years since the Prince won the war and pardoned the rebels.
The Prince left, but lasting peace never had a chance to begin.
As a Stealthmaster, Verus is determined to complete the task the Prince did not, whatever the cost. Traitors, needlessly vague governors, and threatening rumors are all part of a standard mission. Verus will bring peace to what is left of the world, one city and village at a time. According to the governor’s daughter, the war was never about a physical peace in the first place, but what does she or any of the other Followers know? They weren’t there during the war.
They didn’t see the horrors Tauscher spread over the land or the scars that will never fade.
Commandeering the task of a former soldier, Verus presents himself to the governor of Nerva. Eventually he’ll need to undermine the man, but even Stealthmasters need money, and a mission to discover the owner of a misshapen slipper shouldn’t be difficult.
Until the ambassador from Zahavia appears.
Suddenly face to face with nightmares from the past, Verus struggles to help those plunged into danger, from the governor’s newest prisoner to a serving lad to an infuriating woman he’s taken to calling princess. Fleeing will only make the enemy stronger. But staying…
Staying could doom them all.
Coming June 1, 2018
Seriously. Go preorder it before you forget. Unless you have doubts about sarcasm, danger, and a cover that cool. Or if you don’t have money. That might make preordering it a little difficult too.
Hope Ann uses chocolate to bribe a wide ring of spies, from the realm leapers of Aslaria to the double agents of Elkbend, for their stories. Based in Indiana, she is the self-published author of the Legends of Light series, personal writing coach, and the Communications Coordinator for Story Embers. You can find out more about her at authorhopeann.com

So, what do you think? Looking forward to installment four of Legends of Light?
(Psst, Kate here. Stay tuned for next week, because then I have some… bookish news of my own. *zips lips and says no more*)
