Sienna Nealon has spent the last two months cooling her heels on the cloudy shores of Oregon, waiting for something to happen.

To his destiny.

A different kind of epic! Yes, there’s danger, and the stakes are high. Blood will be spilled. But there are also moments of humor, tenderness, beauty, and hope. The large cast of colorful characters includes two urbane but thoroughly evil wizards, an arrogant and unreliable concert pianist, a thief, a straight-laced governess, a half-breed demon, and a not-very-bright ghost. Men with crossbows appear from time to time, but there’s not a single knight or warrior, and the king wears reading spectacles. Even when the multi-faceted world turns dark, it’s not bitter or grim.
At seventeen, Kyura is sure she’s nobody special, but her life is about to be flipped upside down. She works in her uncle’s inn, serving the dinner guests and sweeping the floors. The author wishes to apologize in advance for making her the hereditary ruler of the distant and troubled land where she was born. If the author had known The Chosen One was such a howling cliché, he would never have written this story, so we can all be grateful that he didn’t know.
So anyway, a family of elves shows up, bringing a broken piece of a powerful magical amulet (another cliché — sorry) called the Leafstone Shield. The Shield was once her grandfather’s pride and burden. Now it’s hers. Finding the other broken bits is the least of the challenges she’ll face. And she will need the magic of the Shield to free her once-beautiful homeland from the iron grip of a fae lord and her unstable and casually murderous cousin. (You want villains? We got villains.) Kyura and her friends Meery and Alixia face impossible odds, swept up in a whirlwind of political intrigue, treachery, ancient legends, and exotic magic. And this is only Book One. The adventure begins….

This is the final post on Robert J. Crane’s Girl in the Box series redoes. I’m just going to throw the remaining five covers at you all! I had a lot of fun redoing this series. There was a lot of custom work involved, including a photoshoot for the main character (not something I would normally be involved in, it was just happenstance). I hope the new covers for the new year bring a lot of new sales!
Now on to the pretty pictures!
Sienna Nealon is a broken human being. Her lover is dead, her closest friends have deserted her, and her employers have betrayed her. From the ashes of her desperation, she must master the metahuman powers at her command and finally tame the souls that share her body for one ultimate purpose – revenge against the ones who destroyed her life.
Far from home, having failed in her quest to kill Old Man Winter, Sienna Nealon finds herself in the city of London, working with Omega, her oldest enemies. Surrounded by people she doesn’t trust, thrust into events that could mean the extinction of the metahuman race, Sienna will discover that the line between friend and foe is thinner than she ever could have believed – and that her greatest enemies may lie within.
Time is running out for Sienna Nealon. The mysterious organization Century is only weeks from wiping out the entire metahuman race. But just as Sienna has made the decision to fight them, her past catches up to her and she finds herself in the hands of the U.S. Government. Secrets long buried begin to rise, putting Sienna and everyone she cares about directly in the path of Century…and in a desperate search for the identity of their leader, Sovereign, a man who has plans of his own for Sienna.
In the aftermath of her confrontation with Sovereign, Sienna Nealon finds herself low on allies. The organization Century continues their genocide of the entire race of metahumans unchecked, working toward an ultimate goal that they have yet to reveal. Sienna must race to find the answers before it’s too late, because Century’s final attacks are beginning…and if Sienna and her allies fall, there will be no one left to stop them.
Sienna Nealon seems like a woman beaten. Imprisoned by her enemies, facing the extinction of her entire race, she is up against overwhelming odds.
But overwhelming odds have never stopped her before.
Another series revamp. Check out the new look for Marina Finlayson’s The Proving Trilogy.
Now available in print and ebook!
Kate O’Connor’s trying to move on from a tragic past, but there’s a big difference between wanting to forget and having someone rip the memories right out of your head. When Kate returns from an unusual courier job with no memory of where she’s just been, alarm bells start ringing. But the weirdness gets seriously out of hand when a werewolf shows up in her kitchen and tries to kill her. It turns out there’s a whole hidden world of shifters out there—and most of them want Kate dead. Shame she can’t remember why.
Werewolves are only the beginning of Kate’s troubles. The shifter world is ruled by the dragon queens, and Kate’s managed to land right in the middle of a supernatural war of succession. As the queen’s daughters fight to the death, Kate forms an unlikely alliance with her attacker. To have any hope of surviving she must uncover the explosive secret hidden in her memory—but first she has to live through the night.
Kate O’Connor’s had a rough week. Thrown into the middle of a war of succession between the daughters of the dragon queen, her introduction to the hidden world of the shifters almost proved fatal. Now, because of Kate and her new powers, that hidden realm has been revealed to the world, which hasn’t exactly won Kate any popularity contests.
Still, it’s not all bad news. After all, it’s not every day someone you love comes back from the dead. Throw in a hot new boyfriend, and suddenly Kate’s got a lot to live for—which is bad timing, because now the queen’s set a bounty on her head and every shifter in Sydney is trying to collect it.
Kate may have defeated a dragon already, but there are plenty more where that one came from. As her enemies close in and the body count mounts, Kate begins a desperate search for allies. The deadly game of the proving continues. If Kate is to save the people she loves, failure is not an option. The rules are simple: win or die.
Half human, half dragon, all vengeance.
No one said being half dragon would be easy, but Kate O’Connor’s life has gone completely off the rails. She thought she’d won the succession war between the daughters of the dragon queen, until a shocking betrayal changed everything.
Now seven new sisters have joined the fray, a sinister government taskforce is gunning for her, and the Japanese queen has hit town, bent on snatching the throne for herself. Worst of all, her beloved son has been abducted.
The shifter world has never seen a proving like this one, but then, there’s never been a dragon quite like Kate before. She’ll need her human ingenuity as well as her dragon magic to save her son and everyone she holds dear. The final moves in the deadly endgame take her from goblin caves to Japanese palaces as she races against the clock to snatch victory from the dragon jaws of defeat.
A shout out and a big thanks to NeoStock for creating great model images to work with!
I’ve posted a few of the new covers for Melanie Cellier’s spin-off series, Beyond the Four Kingdoms, and now it’s time to show off the new cover redoes for the original series, The Four Kingdoms.
We wanted to keep a similar look as Beyond the Four Kingdoms so that readers knew the series was connected, yet different enough to know they are a separate series.
On to the covers!
Danger and romance await a woodcutter’s daughter in a royal palace.
One dark and stormy night, lost and alone, Alyssa finds herself knocking on the door of a castle. After a lifetime spent in the deep forest, Alyssa has no idea what to expect on the other side.
What she finds is two unruly young princesses and one very handsome prince. When Alyssa accepts the job of Princess Companion she knows her life will change. What she doesn’t know is that the royal family is about to be swept up in unexpected danger and intrigue, and that she just might be the only thing standing between her kingdom and destruction.
This retelling of the classic fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, reimagines the risks and rewards that come when one royal family goes searching for a true princess.
Princess Ava used to be a weapon – sharp, strong and beautiful. But when she fails at her most important task, she’s forced to flee from her own family.
Only her personal bodyguard, Hans, remains loyal. Hans claims to know the real Ava but she finds that hard to believe – after all, she’s been the villain so long that she can’t remember anything else.
Deep in exile, Ava learns her kingdom needs a hero and she might be the only one who can save it. The catch? She’ll have to ally herself with the very people she blames for her downfall.
But in a game of life and death where the stakes are an entire kingdom, winning over her enemies will only be the beginning. Can one fugitive save her people, her kingdom and, hardest of all, herself?
In this reimagining of the classic fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood, the girl in the red hood has been swallowed up by the wolf and must decide if she’s willing to fight for her freedom, no matter the cost.
Sometimes a fairy tale ending is only the beginning…
Sarah and Evelyn have already risked everything to help Ava win a crown. But they soon learn that a coronation is a beginning, not an ending. Not everyone in Rangmere is happy to see the young queen on the throne, and intrigue and danger lurk all around.
The cousins find themselves fighting not only for their new kingdom but also for their own survival in the royal court. When a new threat emerges, the two girls must defeat it to both save the crown and secure their own Happily Ever Afters.
Spinning straw into gold was only the beginning of the story…
Marie, the dutiful princess of Northhelm, chafes under the rigid protocol that governs her life. Then a growing darkness threatens the kingdom and uncovers the lie at the centre of her whole life–a single pact that changes everything.
Throwing off convention, she joins Rafe, a handsome, charming newcomer, on a quest to save her kingdom. Except he doesn’t know she has a mission of her own–to discover the truth about her identity. Increasingly drawn to Rafe’s strength and good humour, Marie is torn by her double purpose. With time running out and death and destruction looming, Marie will have to unravel the bargains that surround her and choose where her true allegiance lies.
In this twist on the classic fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin, a hidden identity is just one of the things Marie will have to unravel.
They call her the Sleeping Princess, but Celeste is far from asleep…
Celeste has been cursed since her sixteenth birthday–just not in the way the rest of the kingdom thinks. All they see is her breath-taking beauty, marred by her foolishness. Only she knows that she retains her brilliant mind. And it’s a secret she must keep at all costs.
Over the years she’s grown accustomed to the necessary deception. After all, her life depends on it. And she’s even found a way to protect her kingdom, working from the shadows. But now a dangerous new threat has emerged, one that Celeste can’t defeat alone. She needs the help of a newly-arrived prince. One who’s altogether too handsome and too charming. Somehow she needs to keep her secret, save her kingdom and find a way to free herself from the curse. The last thing she has time to do is sleep.
In this reimagining of the classic fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, it’s only the princess’ mind that is asleep. And sometimes appearances can be deceiving.
Princess Cordelia is used to being overshadowed by her many brothers and sisters. So when she’s offered the chance to attend her brother’s wedding in a faraway kingdom, she leaps at it. In Northhelm, she’ll finally have the chance to stand out. And maybe, just maybe, she’ll even find romance.
But not everything in the Northhelmian court is as it appears. With her brother distracted by the wedding, only Ferdinand, the ugliest man at court, will listen to Cordelia’s concerns. An observant princess and a strangely amphibious soldier may be the only thing standing between all Four Kingdoms and disaster.
Cordelia will have to overcome prejudice, deceit and danger if she wants to save the day and find romance at A Midwinter’s Wedding.
