Official Cover of 'A Day Of Fallen Night' By Samantha Shannon Revealed

The surprising yet the equally wanted (or needed) prequel to The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon is almost upon us! Presenting A Day of Fallen Night, which will tackle half-a-century of more magical yet dangerous tales prior to the events of it predecessor. Samantha Shannon is definitely giving us another heavy-weight -- and I mean that literally -- but who is complaining, really? No me, for sure.

Samantha Shannon is lucky to have wonderful artists work on the covers of her books: from David Mann doing the covers designs of The Bone Season series, and who continued the tradition with The Priory of the Orange Tree, working together with cover artist Ivan Belikov! This duo is back to impress us once again!

Check out the official cover of A Day of Fallen Night by Samantha Shannon.

Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory. For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation is starting to question the Priory's purpose.

To the north, in the Queendom of Inys, Sabran the Ambitious has married the new King of Hróth, narrowly saving both realms from ruin. Their daughter, Glorian, trails in their shadow - exactly where she wants to be.

The dragons of the East have slept for centuries. Dumai has spent her life in a Seiikinese mountain temple, trying to wake the gods from their long slumber. Now someone from her mother's past is coming to upend her fate.

When the Dreadmount erupts, bringing with it an age of terror and violence, these women must find the strength to protect humankind from a devastating threat.

Intricate and epic, A Day of Fallen Night sweeps readers back to the world of A Priory of the Orange Tree, showing us a course of events that shaped it for generations to come.

A Day of Fallen Night by Samantha Shannon will be released on February 28, 2023.
