Rachel writes Adult Fantasy, and I didn't even know it until a few months ago. She's been working on her SERENGARD series for a while. She self published the first book on a small scale and it got such good feedback that she decided to go big.
Which brings us here today!
I'm so excited to help announce the cover reveal for COLDNESS OF MAREK, a fantasy novel that I absolutely fell in love with. It's set for release on August 6th, and I absolutely CAN NOT WAIT to share it with you guys!
Here's a little bit about the story:
Serengard has been under Orion rule for centuries. Centuries of insufferable adherence to laws and traditions that none of its people ever asked for or agreed to. Raised by her scholarly grandfather in the fiery southern city of Neroi, Trzl is out to turn the monarchy into a free society where knowledge is king and no one has to be subject to the whims of an Orion.
As the rebellion escalates, her choices have an eerie impact on the revolution at large, elevating her to a position of influence she has only dreamed of attaining. But there are downsides to her power: appearances and alliances that must be upheld. One of them is Hodran, a rich rebel who wants to aid her cause, and another is Mikel, a loyalist farmer who wants to destroy it… and who just might be winning her heart at the same time.
By the time Trzl realizes she is in too deep, she has an infant son and a dark mess of betrayal and lies. She runs, to the farthest corner of the kingdom, in hopes she will be left alone with her child. But she has a few too many demons. Someone she once trusted takes her captive among the chilling Cliffs of Marek. She is thrown back into the political mess she helped create… at the mercy of a man she never wanted for an enemy.
You guys, it's SO good.
Okay, are you ready for the pretty cover? I am... here it is!!!
ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL?!?!?!?!?
I can't wait for the release, you guys. I'm going to have a giveaway and everything. You'll love it.
