As I’ve been given permission by my editor, I can now show you -all- of my pretty cover, not just a snippet like I did a couple of weeks ago.
So without further ado:
In the Novels of the Golden City, J. Kathleen Cheney created a “mesmerizing” (Publishers Weekly) realm where magic, history, and intrigue combine. Now, she presents a new world ruled by psychic talents and fatal magic…
Shironne Anjir’s status as a sensitive is both a gift and a curse. Her augmented senses allow her to discover and feel things others can’t, but her talents come with a price: a constant assault of emotions and sensations has left her blind. Determined to use her abilities as best she can, Shironne works tirelessly as an investigator for the Larossan army.
A member of the royal family’s guard, Mikael Lee also possesses an overwhelming power—he dreams of the deaths of others, sometimes in vivid, shocking detail, and sometimes in cryptic fragments and half-remembered images.
But then a killer brings a reign of terror to the city, snuffing out his victims with an arcane and deadly blood magic. Only Shironne can sense and interpret Mikael’s dim, dark dreams of the murders. And what they find together will lead them into a nightmare…
Once again, I have to say that the art department at Ace/Roc does an amazing job! Thanks, guys!!!!
Also, my editor, Jessica Wade, worked hard to get the cover to capture the feel of the story. She asked for pictures and ran ideas past me, which was really amazing. I would -never- have thought to do this kind of cover, which is why I rely so heavily on them for this. It turned out beautiful, and I LOVE it. Thank you so much, Jessica, for getting it right!
And the book is available for preorder on Amazon, although not the other retailers so far. It will be coming out in February, and everyone will need a book to cuddle up with then…so it won’t hurt you to preorder now. (And I’d really like that, as well.)
Also, it’s blue!
