Cover Reveal: An Echo Of Things To Come (The Licanius Trilogy Book 2) By James Islington

One of my recent book haul is The Shadow of What Was Lost by James Islington. I haven't started reading it yet. I was easily convinced to buy it because of the quote at the back of the book: "Love The Wheel of Time? This is about to become your new favorite series." - B&N SF & Fantasy Blog. I love Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series so it is a no-brainer decision if the blurb is to be relied upon.

I was glad to hear that this book is the first of a trilogy called The Licanius Trilogy. And I was even more excited that I have pre-ordered the second book in the series called An Echo of Things to Come. Just recently the official cover of the sequel has been unveiled. Thanks to Dominick Saponaro for this simplistic illustration and Lauren Panepinto for the continuity-inducing jacket design.

An Echo of Things to Come by James Islington


The second book in a glorious new fantasy trilogy by the next major force in commercial epic fantasy.

In the wake of the devastating attack on Ilin Illan, an amnesty has been declared for all Augurs - finally allowing them to emerge from hiding and openly oppose the dark forces massing against Andarra. However as Davian and his new allies hurry north toward the ever-weakening Boundary, fresh horrors along their path suggest that their reprieve may have come far too late.

In the capital, Wirr is forced to contend with assassins and an increasingly hostile Administration as he controversially assumes the mantle of Northwarden, uncovering a mystery that draws into question everything commonly believed about the rebellion his father led twenty years ago. Meanwhile, Asha begins a secret investigation into the disappearance of the Shadows, determined to discover not only where they went but the origin of the Vessels that created them - and, ultimately, a cure.

And with time against him as he races to fulfill the treacherous bargain with the Lyth, Caeden continues to wrestle with the impossibly heavy burdens of his past. Yet as more and more of his memories return, he begins to realise that the motivations of the two sides in this ancient war may not be as clear-cut as they first seemed...

An Echo of Things to Come by James Islington will be released on August 22, 2017.
