#CoverReveal The Tide Child Book 1: 'The Bone Ships' By RJ Barker (First Book In A New Trilogy)

Since the closing chapter of The Wounded Kingdom trilogy (including Age of Assassins, Blood of Assassins, and King of Assassins) by RJ Barker, I've been wondering what's next from this newly discovered author of mine. I first encountered the name when I ventured through Anderida Books for signed limited hardcover editions. After that, it's been an uphill and exciting journey... and the craving left me wanting for more of his stories!

Thankfully, Barker is back with a new trilogy starting with The Bone Ships. Who does not want to read adventures about ships made of dragon bones? This reminds me greatly of The Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb, so obviously I am already sold. Designer Hannah Wood has crafted the cover for the said book, and it is a distant flight from the look and feel of the author's previous series (which is a good thing, of course).

Check out the cover of The Bone Ships by RJ Barker.
