The Trials Of Apollo Final Book: 'The Tower Of Nero' By Rick Riordan Official Cover Stuns

Rick Riordan has stood the test of time in the publishing industry and that speaks volumes on the value and quality of his novels that opened up the mystical world of the ancient heroes and gods in a new light to modern readers. He is too successful and influential that he created an Imprint called Rick Riordan Presents that helps other writers of not-so-represented mythologies and got so well accepted as well it's been producing some of the best and award-winning novels...

His latest offering is the final book in the explosive The Trials of Apollo series. Titled The Tower of Nero, the book's official cover has been unvield. Now let me tell you one of the reasons why Riordan's books stood the test of time and that's the fantastic cover arts by John Rocco, giving the books vibrant and adventurous visuals for us to enjoy while reading them. Yes, yes I know people said to never judge a book by its cover but these said art are an entity on their own worth noting... just take the following cover for example.

Cover Reveal: 'Piranesi' By Susanna Clarke

The moment the book was listed on some online books stores I preordered it right away. Yes! That is how excited I am of Piranesi by Susanna Clarke. I am not sure if this is really a direct follow-up to Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell but I can assume this is set in the same ethereal world of magic!

You see I'm in love with Susanna Clarke and it started after having read her first novel. At first I was daunted by its sheer size, but then I started reading the words (and looking at the eerie in-page arts) I got hooked and entertained by it right away. So gothic... so bizarrely beautiful! So I am really watching out for new books from this author! That's how hungry I am of her works, unfortunately there are not many becaase the releases are far in between...

Check out the official cover of Piranesi by Susanna Clarke.

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

Synopsis

From the New York Times bestselling author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, an intoxicating, hypnotic new novel set in a dreamlike alternative reality.

Piranesi's house is no ordinary building: its rooms are infinite, its corridors endless, its walls are lined with thousands upon thousands of statues, each one different from all the others. Within the labyrinth of halls an ocean is imprisoned; waves thunder up staircases, rooms are flooded in an instant. But Piranesi is not afraid; he understands the tides as he understands the pattern of the labyrinth itself. He lives to explore the house.

There is one other person in the house-a man called The Other, who visits Piranesi twice a week and asks for help with research into A Great and Secret Knowledge. But as Piranesi explores, evidence emerges of another person, and a terrible truth begins to unravel, revealing a world beyond the one Piranesi has always known.

For readers of Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane and fans of Madeline Miller's Circe, Piranesi introduces an astonishing new world, an infinite labyrinth, full of startling images and surreal beauty, haunted by the tides and the clouds.

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke will be released on September 15, 2020.

Dresden Files: 'Peace Talks' By Jim Butcher Finally Gets An Official Cover

It took quite a while before we finally got news on the release of the sixteenth Dresden Files novel by Jim Butcher titled Peace Talks. That is understandable because he is now juggling with another series called The Cinder Spires. These new updates from the said installment is such a fresh breath of air, satiating my hunger for this world.

Just imagine when I found out that the official cover has been released and it is magnificent as ever. I think this is one of the book in the series that will have a white- or light-colored spine--there's been only two books previously to have this scheme and the rest are all in black. We have Chris McGrath to thank for this cover art...

Check out the cover of Peace Talks by Jim Butcher.
