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.

Realm Breaker Book 2: 'Blade Breaker' By Victoria Aveyard Gets Official Cover

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. In real life, I get a little faint and anxious if I see blood, but this is the only sight of blood that makes me excited because it means another complex and layered story is about to be unleashed to the world.

I have never been this excited for another blood curling tale since beginning of the pandemic. It may seem inappropriate where the rest of the world suffers and here I am pining over for the Blade Breaker to be released soon. I only get to have few consolations in these troubled times, so I hope you'll forgive me.

Check out the official cover of Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard.

Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard


In the sequel to Victoria Aveyard’s instant #1 New York Times bestselling Realm Breaker, a divided world must rally, an unstoppable enemy must be defeated, and the fate of the world rests on a blade’s edge.

Andry, a former squire, continues to fight for hope amid blood and chaos.

Dom, a grieving immortal, strives to fulfill a broken oath.

Sorasa, an outcast assassin, faces her past when it returns with sharpened teeth.

Valtik, an old sorceress, summons a mighty power.

And Corayne, a pirate’s daughter with an ancient magic in her blood, steps closer to becoming the hero she’s destined to be.

Together they must assemble an army to face Queen Erida and Taristan’s wicked forces. But something deadly waits in the shadows, something that might consume the world before there’s any hope for victory.

The sequel to the instant #1 New York Times bestselling Realm Breaker features breathless action, deadly twists, and gripping magic, making it perfect for fans of Garth Nix and J. R. R. Tolkien.

Blade Breaker by Victoria Aveyard will be released on June 28, 2022.
