Cover Reveal News Round-Up, Including Books By Holly Black And Christopher Ruocchio

Here are some of the recent cover reveals, including a new book book by Holly Black and a sequel by Christopher Ruocchio.

Book of Night by Holly Black

Book of Night by Holly Black


#1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black makes her stunning adult debut with Book of Night, a modern dark fantasy of shadowy thieves and secret societies in the vein of Ninth House and The Night Circus.

One of Publishers Weekly's top ten most anticipated books of 2022!

Charlie Hall has never found a lock she couldn’t pick, a book she couldn’t steal, or a bad decision she wouldn’t make. She's spent half her life working for gloamists, magicians who manipulate shadows to peer into locked rooms, strangle people in their beds, or worse. Gloamists guard their secrets greedily, creating an underground economy of grimoires. And to rob their fellow magicians, they need Charlie.

Now, she’s trying to distance herself from past mistakes, but going straight isn’t easy. Bartending at a dive, she’s still entirely too close to the corrupt underbelly of the Berkshires. Not to mention that her sister Posey is desperate for magic, and that her shadowless and possibly soulless boyfriend has been keeping secrets from her. When a terrible figure from her past returns, Charlie descends back into a maelstrom of murder and lies. Determined to survive, she’s up against a cast of doppelgängers, mercurial billionaires, gloamists, and the people she loves best in the world ― all trying to steal a secret that will allow them control of the shadow world and more.

Book of Night by Holly Black will be released on May 3, 2022.

Kingdoms of Death by Christopher Ruocchio

Kingdoms of Death by Christopher Ruocchio


The fourth novel of the galaxy-spanning Sun Eater series merges the best of space opera and epic fantasy, as Hadrian Marlowe continues down a path that can only end in fire.

Hadrian Marlowe is trapped.

For nearly a century, he has been a guest of the Emperor, forced into the role of advisor, a prisoner of his own legend. But the war is changing. Mankind is losing.

The Cielcin are spilling into human space from the fringes, picking their targets with cunning precision. The Great Prince Syriani Dorayaica is uniting their clans, forging them into an army and threat the likes of which mankind has never seen.

And the Empire stands alone.

Now the Emperor has no choice but to give Hadrian Marlowe—once his favorite knight—one more impossible task: journey across the galaxy to the Lothrian Commonwealth and convince them to join the war. But not all is as it seems, and Hadrian’s journey will take him far beyond the Empire, beyond the Commonwealth, impossibly deep behind enemy lines.

Kingdoms of Death by Christopher Ruocchio will be released on March 22, 2022.

As usual, grit and blood continue to flow on the covers of Victoria Aveyard's books. The second book in the Realm Breaker series, called Blade Breaker, is no exception as we see in this new cover reveal.

But when his mother is brutally murdered, Demir must return from exile to claim his seat at the head of the family and uncover the truth that got her killed: the very power that keeps civilization turning, godglass, is running out.

Official Cover Of 'The Omega Factor' By Steve Berry

It pains me to say that despite my regular looking-into the books by Steve Berry I failed to see the official cover of The Omega Factor when it was unveiled weeks ago. But you know what they say, better late than never, right? Right?

Check out the official cover of The Omega Factor by Steve Berry.

The Omega Factor by Steve Berry


The Ghent Altarpiece is the most violated work of art in the world. Thirteen times it has been vandalized, dismantled, or stolen. Why?

What secrets does it hold?

Enter UNESCO investigator, Nicholas Lee, who works for the United Nations’ Cultural Liaison and Investigative Office (CLIO). Nick’s job is to protect the world’s cultural artifacts—including countless lesser-known objects and national treasures.

When Nick travels to Belgium for a visit with a woman from his past, he unwittingly stumbles on the trail of the twelfth panel for the Ghent Altarpiece, stolen in 1934 under cover of night and never seen since. Soon Nick is plunged into a bitter conflict, one that has been simmering for nearly two thousand years. On one side is the Maidens of Saint-Michael, les Vautours, Vultures, a secret order of nuns and the guardians of a great truth. Pitted against them is the Vatican, which has wanted for centuries to both find and possess what the nuns guard. Because of Nick the maidens have finally been exposed, their secret placed in dire jeopardy—a vulnerability that the Vatican swiftly moves to exploit utilizing an ambitious cardinal and a corrupt archbishop, both with agendas of their own.

From the tranquil canals of Ghent, to the towering bastions of Carcassonne, and finally into an ancient abbey high in the French Pyrenees, Nick Lee must confront a modern-day religious crusade intent on eliminating a shocking truth from humanity’s past. Success or failure—life and death—all turn on the Omega Factor.

The Girl and the Moon by Mark Lawrence

The Girl and the Moon by Mark Lawrence


In the third exhilarating novel in this dazzling epic fantasy series, a young outcast will fight against staggering odds to save her world.

On the planet Abeth, a narrow Corridor of green land is surrounded on all sides by ice plains where only the strong survive. Ice triber Yaz has completed a perilous journey and arrived at the Corridor, and it exceeds and overwhelms all of her expectations. Everything seems different but some constants remain: her old enemies are still two steps ahead, bent on her destruction. She makes her way to the Convent of Sweet Mercy, where nuns train young girls who show the old gifts, but like the Corridor itself the convent is packed with peril and opportunity. Yaz has much to learn from the nuns—if they don’t decide to execute her.

The fate of everyone squeezed between the Corridor’s vast walls, and ultimately the fate of those laboring to survive out on ice itself, hangs from the moon, and the battle to save the moon centers on the Ark of the Missing, buried beneath the emperor’s palace. Everyone wants Yaz to be the key that will open the Ark – the one the wise have sought for generations. But sometimes wanting isn’t enough.

Cover Reveal: The Redwinter Chronicles Book One 'Daughter Of Redwinter' By Ed McDonald

In terms of SFF official covers, UK publishers rarely disappoint me. They produce consistently on-point covers that would make you wanna enjoy a book even more. People say to not judge a book by its cover, but if I have to take it literally a great book with a beautiful cover is a huge bonus.

With that said, Ed McDonald's latest and upcoming opener to a new series, titled Daughter of Redwinter, just got its official cover revealed by a few online book sellers. And I should tell that it is no exemption of the above stattement. Unfortunately I was not able to get a better resolution so it is little grainy. I will update this page as soon as I get a version with higher resolution.

Check out the official cover of Daughter of Redwinter by Ed McDonald.

Update: Finally, I was able to find an image with higher resolution.

Raine is seventeen-years-old and still on the run. She can see the dead, a secret that could get her killed. Seeking refuge with a deluded cult is her latest bad decision but rescuing an injured woman in the snow is soon revealed to be a horrific mistake. Hazia endangers not just Raine, but the whole world: she's escaped from Redwinter, fortress-monastery of the Draoihn, the warrior magicians who answer to no king or queen of the land, but to their own Grand Master. They will stop at nothing to retrieve what she's stolen.

Raine must survive by her wits, and her skill with a bow in a world turned upside down. A battle, a betrayal and a horrific revelation finds her herself inside Redwinter, where anyone caught communing with ghosts is put to death. As conspirators plot to release an ancient enemy, Raine's ability to see the dead might be their only hope, but to use her power would see her condemned.

Maggie Stiefvater To Release 'Bravely', A Story Set In Disney Pixar's 'Brave' World

If you are both a fan of Maggie Stiefvater's magical stories and poetic writing, and of Disney Pixar's wild Scottish-inspired adventure (Brave) then the upcoming novel called Bavely by Maggie Stiefvater is the best fit for you. Set in the same world of DunBroch, the novel is a standalone story, which does not require you to watch the said movie.

The official cover of Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater has been revealed, which features Merida, the same red-haired main character we love. The only thing I'd miss in this novel is her accent (thanks to Kelly Macdonald's iconic voice), which is one of the things I loved about the movie!

Check out the official cover of Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater.

Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater


What if you had one year to save everything you loved?

One princess. Merida of DunBroch needs a change. She loves her family―jovial King Fergus, proper Queen Elinor, the mischievous triplets― and her peaceful kingdom. But she’s frustrated by its sluggishness; each day, the same. Merida longs for adventure, purpose, challenge – maybe even, someday, love.

Two gods. But the fiery Princess never expects her disquiet to manifest by way of Feradach, an uncanny supernatural being tasked with rooting out rot and stagnation, who appears in DunBroch on Christmas Eve with the intent to demolish the realm – and everyone within. Only the intervention of the Cailleach, an ancient entity of creation, gives Merida a shred of hope: convince her family to change within the year – or suffer the eternal consequences.

Three voyages. Under the watchful eyes of the gods, Merida leads a series of epic journeys to kingdoms near and far in an attempt to inspire revolution within her family. But in her efforts to save those she loves from ruin, has Merida lost sight of the Clan member grown most stagnant of all – herself?

Four seasons to save Dunbroch – or see it destroyed, forrver.

Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater will be released on May 3, 2022.

Being Vaccinated In Times Of Covid-19 Pandemic

Covid-19 Vaccine
I am now fully vaccinated against COVID-19. In this time of uncertainties at least one of the items that keeps on bugging my thoughts is ticked off from my list. Mental health is such a serious matter in this day and age, and we must grab any little hope we see on the horizon. 

Yes the virus does not only bring physical health issues, but mental health issues as well. Being on lock down for more than a year now most of us are desperate to be outside and be with nature again. So the only immediate action we can do, since I believe this pandemic is not gonna end as soon as we would like it, is to be vaccinated.

I know some anti-vaxxers would raise their eye-brows on this but this is the only way we can protect our selves and the ones we love in this trying times. The vaccines may be approved for emergency use only but the benefits out-weigh the risks...

Official Cover Of A Chorus of Dragons #5: 'The Discord Of Gods' By Jenn Lyons Revealed

I haven't even received my copy of The House of Always by Jenn Lyons yet and we already have great news for the fifth and final installment of A Chorus of Dragons series. Titled The Discord of Gods, it will be released on the second quarter of the year 2022. As early as now we already have a view of the book's official cover.

The cover is backdropped by a purple and veiny rock-like surface, but unlike the previous 5 covers it will not highlight a sigil of one of the houses featured in the series...

Check out the official cover of The Discord of Gods by Jenn Lyons.

The Discord of Gods by Jenn Lyons


The Discord of Gods marks the epic conclusion to Jenn Lyons's Chorus of Dragon series, closing out the saga that began with The Ruin of Kings, for fans of Brandon Sanderson and Patrick Rothfuss.

The end times have come.

Relos Var's final plans to enslave the universe are on the cusp of fruition. He believes there's only one being in existence that might be able to stop him: the demon Xaltorath.

As these two masterminds circle each other, neither is paying attention to the third player on the board, Kihrin. Unfortunately, keeping himself classified in the "pawn" category means Kihrin must pretend to be everything the prophecies threatened he'd become: the destroyer of all, the sun eater, a mindless, remorseless plague upon the land. It also means finding an excuse to not destroy the people he loves (or any of the remaining Immortals) without arousing suspicion.

Kihrin's goals are complicated by the fact that not all of his "act" is one. His intentions may be sincere, but he's still being forced to grapple with the aftereffects of the corrupted magic ritual that twisted both him and the dragons. Worse, he's now tied to a body that is the literal avatar of a star - a form that is becoming increasingly, catastrophically unstable. All of which means he's running out of time.

After all, some stars fade - but others explode.

The Discord of Gods by Jenn Lyons will be released on April 26, 2022.

Cover Reveal News Round-Up, Including Books By Brandon Sanderson, Mitch Albom, Tad Williams, Becky Albertalli, Adam Silvera And Megan E. O'Keefe

New month means new set of upcoming title and cover reveals, including a new books from Mitch Albom, novella by Tad Williams, and sequels by Brandon Sanderson, Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera and Megan E. O'Keefe.

Cytonic by Brandon Sanderson

Cytonic by Brandon Sanderson


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Reckoners series, the Mistborn trilogy, and the Stormlight Archive comes the third book in an epic series about a girl who will travel beyond the stars to save the world she loves from destruction.

Spensa’s life as a Defiant Defense Force pilot has been far from ordinary. She proved herself one of the best starfighters in the human enclave of Detritus and she saved her people from extermination at the hands of the Krell—the enigmatic alien species that has been holding them captive for decades. What's more, she traveled light-years from home as an undercover spy to infiltrate the Superiority, where she learned of the galaxy beyond her small, desolate planet home.

Now, the Superiority—the governing galactic alliance bent on dominating all human life—has started a galaxy-wide war. And Spensa's seen the weapons they plan to use to end it: the Delvers. Ancient, mysterious alien forces that can wipe out entire planetary systems in an instant. Spensa knows that no matter how many pilots the DDF has, there is no defeating this predator.

Except that Spensa is Cytonic. She faced down a Delver and saw something eerily familiar about it. And maybe, if she's able to figure out what she is, she could be more than just another pilot in this unfolding war. She could save the galaxy.

The only way she can discover what she really is, though, is to leave behind all she knows and enter the Nowhere. A place from which few ever return.

To have courage means facing fear. And this mission is terrifying.

Cytonic by Brandon Sanderson will be released on November 23, 2021.

The Stranger in the Lifeboat by Mitch Albom

The Stranger in the Lifeboat by Mitch Albom


What would happen if we called on God for help and God actually appeared? In Mitch Albom's profound new novel of hope and faith, a group of shipwrecked passengers pull a strange man from the sea. He claims to be “the Lord.” And he says he can only save them if they all believe in him.

Adrift in a raft after a deadly ship explosion, nine people struggle for survival at sea. Three days pass. Short on water, food and hope, they spot a man floating in the waves. They pull him in.

“Thank the Lord we found you,” a passenger says.

“I am the Lord,” the man whispers.

So begins Mitch Albom’s most beguiling and inspiring novel yet.

Albom has written of heaven in the celebrated number one bestsellers The Five People You Meet in Heaven and The First Phone Call from Heaven. Now, for the first time in his fiction, he ponders what we would do if, after crying out for divine help, God actually appeared before us? What might the Lord look, sound and act like?

In The Stranger in the Lifeboat, Albom keeps us guessing until the end: Is this strange and quiet man really who he claims to be? What actually happened to cause the explosion? Are the survivors already in heaven, or are they in hell?

The story is narrated by Benji, one of the passengers, who recounts the events in a notebook that is later discovered—a year later—when the empty life raft washes up on the island of Montserrat.

It falls to the island’s chief inspector, Jarty LeFleur, a man battling his own demons, to solve the mystery of what really happened.

A fast-paced, compelling novel that makes you ponder your deepest beliefs, The Stranger in the Lifeboat suggests that answers to our prayers may be found where we least expect them.

Brothers of the Wind by Tad Williams

Brothers of the Wind by Tad Williams


Set in the New York Times bestselling world of Osten Ard, this short novel continues the saga that inspired a generation of fantasists

Pride often goes before a fall, but sometimes that prideful fall is so catastrophic that it changes history itself.

Among the immortal Sithi of Osten Ard, none are more beloved and admired than the two sons of the ruling family, steady Hakatri and his proud and fiery younger brother Ineluki -- Ineluki, who will one day become the undead Storm King. The younger brother makes a bold, terrible oath that he will destroy deadly Hidohebhi, a terrifying monster, but instead drags his brother with him into a disaster that threatens not just their family but all the Sithi -- and perhaps all of humankind as well.

Set a thousand years before the events of Williams's The Dragonbone Chair, the tale of Ineluki's tragic boast and what it brings is told by Pamon Kes, Hakatri's faithful servant. Kes is not one of the Sithi but a member of the enslaved Changeling race, and his loyalty has never before been tested. Now he must face the terrible black dragon at his master's side, then see his own life changed forever in a mere instant by Ineluki's rash, selfish promise.

Brothers of the Wind by Tad Williams will be released on November 2, 2021.

Ben survived freshman year of college, but he’s feeling more stuck than ever. His classes are a slog, his part-time job working with his father is even worse, and his best friend Dylan’s been acting weird for weeks. Ben’s only real bright spot is his writing partner Mario, who’s been giving him a lot of Spanish lessons and even more kisses. Mario’s big Hollywood dreams make Ben start to dream bigger—and the choices he makes now could be the key to reshaping his future. So why can’t he stop thinking about a certain boy from his past?

Arthur is back in New York City for the first time in two years, ready to take the theater world by a storm as the world’s best . . . intern to the assistant of an off-off-Broadway director. Of course, it sucks to be spending the summer apart from his sweet, reliable boyfriend, Mikey, but he knows their relationship is strong enough to weather the distance. Which is why it’s no big deal when his ex-boyfriend Ben stumbles back into the picture. And it’s definitely fine that Ben’s blissfully happy with some mystery boy. First loves are special, but it’s way too late for what-ifs. Right?

Even as the boys try to shake off the past, they keep running into each other in the present. Is this the universe trying to tell them there’s a do-over in their future?

New Series: 'The Outlaws Scarlett And Browne' By Jonathan Stroud Gets Official Cover (US Edition)

Jonathan Stroud has always been on my radar. Everytime he publishes a new book I am always eager to read it. He is on the level of some of my favorite authors for young adult readers--a list that includes Rick Riordan, Eoin Colfer, and etc.

It's been quite a while since I read something new from author Jonathan Stroud and I am so glad that he will be releasing a new series, starting with The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne. Its official US edition cover has been unveiled (the UK edition was unveield ages ago) and it made me even more excited to read it.

Check out the official cover of The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne by Jonathan Stroud.

The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne by Jonathan Stroud


Action! Humor! Fantasy! This new series opener is a tour de force from international bestseller Jonathan Stroud.

Scarlett McCain is a shoot-first ask-questions-later kind of outlaw. She scrapes by on bank heists, her wits—and never looking back.

She’s on the run from her latest crime when she comes across Albert Browne. He is the sole survivor of a horrific accident, and against her better judgement, Scarlett agrees to guide him to safety.

This is a mistake. Soon there are men with dogs and guns and explosives hot on their heels. Scarlett’s used to being chased by the law, but this is extreme. It was only a little bank she’d robbed . . .

As they flee together across the wilds, fighting off monstrous beasts, and dodging their pursuers, Scarlett comes to realize that Albert Browne is hiding a terrible secret. And that he may be the most dangerous threat of all.

In this fast-paced, quick-witted whirlwind of a story, Jonathan Stroud introduces two unlikely allies—the outlaws Scarlett and Browne—who are about to become the most notorious renegades in all that’s left of Britain.

The Outlaws Scarlett and Browne by Jonathan Stroud will be released on October 5, 2021.

'The Wisdom Of Crowds' By Joe Abercrombie Gets Official Cover

The Wisdom of Crowds, the gut-wrenching finale to Joe Abercrombie's The Age of Madness trilogy, finally gets an official cover. I'm especially looking forward to the revelation of this cover since this is among the few books that I buy their UK edition of.

I admit I love the covers Gollancz have had for this particular author and that I am very partial about. Gollancz has been consistently delivering eye-catching covers and I was never disappointed. Even my OCD has never complained thus far...
Check out the official cover of The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie.

The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie


Concluding the AGE OF MADNESS trilogy, THE WISDOM OF CROWDS brings the series which is revolutionising fantasy to its stunning conclusion. . .

Chaos. Fury. Destruction.
The Great Change is upon us...

Some say that to change the world you must first burn it down. Now that belief will be tested in the crucible of revolution: the Breakers and Burners have seized the levers of power, the smoke of riots has replaced the smog of industry, and all must submit to the wisdom of crowds.

With nothing left to lose, Citizen Brock is determined to become a new hero for the new age, while Citizeness Savine must turn her talents from profit to survival before she can claw her way to redemption. Orso will find that when the world is turned upside down, no one is lower than a monarch. And in the bloody North, Rikke and her fragile Protectorate are running out of allies . . . while Black Calder gathers his forces and plots his vengeance.

The banks have fallen, the sun of the Union has been torn down, and in the darkness behind the scenes, the threads of the Weaver's ruthless plan are slowly being drawn together...

The Wisdom of Crowds by Joe Abercrombie will be released on September 16, 2021.

Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon

Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon


The author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Outlander series returns with the newest novel in the epic tale.

The past may seem the safest place to be . . . but it is the most dangerous time to be alive. . . .

Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall were torn apart by the Jacobite Rising in 1743, and it took them twenty years to find each other again. Now the American Revolution threatens to do the same.

It is 1779 and Claire and Jamie are at last reunited with their daughter, Brianna, her husband, Roger, and their children on Fraser’s Ridge. Having the family together is a dream the Frasers had thought impossible.

Yet even in the North Carolina backcountry, the effects of war are being felt. Tensions in the Colonies are great and local feelings run hot enough to boil Hell’s tea-kettle. Jamie knows loyalties among his tenants are split and it won’t be long until the war is on his doorstep.

Brianna and Roger have their own worry: that the dangers that provoked their escape from the twentieth century might catch up to them. Sometimes they question whether risking the perils of the 1700s—among them disease, starvation, and an impending war—was indeed the safer choice for their family.

Not so far away, young William Ransom is still coming to terms with the discovery of his true father’s identity—and thus his own—and Lord John Grey has reconciliations to make, and dangers to meet . . . on his son’s behalf, and his own.

Meanwhile, the Revolutionary War creeps ever closer to Fraser’s Ridge. And with the family finally together, Jamie and Claire have more at stake than ever before.

Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone by Diana Gabaldon will be released on November 23, 2021.

New Series Or Standalone Novel? 'Daughter Of The Deep' By Rick Riordan Announced
