Cover Reveal: 'When Jackals Storm The Walls' (Song of Shattered Sands) By Bradley Beaulieu

The fifth book in the Song of Shattered Sands series is coming! Presenting the official cover of When Jackals Storm the Walls by Bradley Beaulieu. For a person with an slight OCD for consistency I am relieved because the cover finally follows on the look and feel of the previous book in the series, Beneath the Twisted Trees.

Kudos to the returning artist, Micah Epstein; the creative & design team in DAW Books, including but not limited to Adam Auerbach and Betsy Wolheim; and of course the author himself. I am very pleased with how this series is moving on as well as how the cover arts have been progressing. If you are interested to know the process of creating this fantastic cover, jump ahead to Barnes and Noble for more information.

Check out the cover of When Jackals Storm the Walls by Bradley Beaulieu.

When Jackals Storm the Walls by Bradley Beaulieu


The reign of the Sharakhani kings has been broken. Queen Meryam now rules the city. Çeda, meanwhile, has succeeded in lifting the asirim’s curse, though it came at a terrible cost: Nalamae was slain in battle against her sister goddess. All is not lost, however. Çeda knows Nalamae will be reborn, and so begins a quest to find her.

The scheming King Ihsan has been busy as well, mining the legendary Blue Journals for a way to save the city and the desert beyond from certain destruction. He believes he’s found one, but it won’t be easy, especially when the only tools left at his disposal are his own wits and guile. As he begins to gather the other fallen kings and convince them to work together, he realizes that one person is crucial to their success: Çeda.

Çeda must now choose: work with the kings she’s vowed to destroy or risk losing the city she loves. Whatever she decides, the path will be dangerous. Her allies are divided. Sharakhai is under threat from neighbouring kingdoms. And now the gods themselves are stepping in...

When Jackals Storm the Walls by Bradley Beaulieu will be released on July 23, 2020.
