'Empire Of The Vampire' By Jay Kristoff Gets Official Cover

After so long a wait, author Jay Kristoff will be releasing the opener to his new bloody series. Writing solo again this time (although I liked his collaborative works as well), the first book on said series (with the same name) is titled Empire of the Vampire. It will be released in fall of this year, just in time for my birthday! What a nice early birthday present to have.

But what is even earlier than this present is the unveiling of the book's official cover, which you can see below. With such gorgeous cover, aren't you even hyped to pre-order your copy now? By the way if your are interested for a signed special edition, I am sorry to say that they were all sold out a few minutes after being listed in participating store(s)...

Check out the official cover of Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff.

“From holy cup comes holy light.
The faithful hand sets world aright.
And in the seven martyrs’ sight,
Mere man shall end this endless night.”

Twenty-seven years have passed since the last sunrise, and for almost three decades, the creatures of the night have walked the day without fear. Once, humanity fought bravely against the coldblood legions, but now, we exist only in a few scattered settlements—tiny sparks of light in a growing sea of darkness.

Gabriel de León is the last of the Silversaints, a holy order dedicated to defending realm and church, now utterly destroyed. Imprisoned for the murder of the vampiric king, Gabriel is charged with telling the story of his life.

His tale spans years, from his youth in the monastery of San Michon, to the forbidden love that spelled his undoing, and the betrayal that saw his order annihilated. Most importantly, Gabriel will tell the story of the Grail—the legendary cup prophesied to bring an end to the eternal night, whose location is known to a single person: A smart-mouthed teenage urchin named Dior.

Their journey with a band of unlikely allies would see Dior and Gabriel forge an unbreakable bond, and set the broken paragon on a road to redemption.

But now, the Grail is shattered. And with the cup of the Redeemer destroyed and the last Silversaint awaiting execution, what can bring an end to this undying empire?

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Nevernight Chronicle, Jay Kristoff, comes the first illustrated volume of an astonishing new dark fantasy saga.

Empire of the Vampire by Jay Kristoff will be released on September 7, 2021 in the UK and on September 14, 2021 in the US.
