It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Beasts Of The Frozen Sun (Jill Criswell), Plus Giveaway! (US/Canada Only)

CR

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

Beasts Of The Frozen Sun by Jill Criswell,

releasing August 2019 from Blackstone Publishing!

 

 

 

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

 

Hello YABC readers! Welcome to the cover reveal for BEASTS OF THE FROZEN SUN!

My name is Jill Criswell, and I’m so excited to share the artwork for my debut novel with you. If you’re like me, you’ll take one look at this cover and immediately go out and buy yourself a sword and look for dragons to slay, only to realize you know nothing about sword fighting and dragons are harder to find than you initially thought. You’ll put your sword away and it will collect dust, but you’ll always keep it close at hand because one day you will stumble across a dragon when you least expect it. When that happens, you’ll channel your inner-warrior and know exactly how to wield it, and you’ll be so glad you were inspired by this cover to go out and get yourself a sword! Thank-you notes for surviving your dragon encounter can be directed to the design team at Blackstone publishing, and specifically to Kurt Jones, my amazing cover designer, for helping to turn us all into dragon-slayers.

—Jill Criswell (BEASTS OF THE FROZEN SUN, Blackstone)

Beasts Of The Frozen Sun
 
 
   By: Jill Criswell

Release date: August 2019

Publisher: Blackstone Publishing

 

About the Book
 

Burn brightly. Love fiercely. For all else is dust.

Every child of Glasnith learns the last words of Aillira, the god-gifted mortal whose doomed love affair sparked a war of gods and men, and Lira of clan Stone knows the story better than most. As a descendant of Aillira and god-gifted in her own right, she has the power to read people's souls, to see someone's true essence with only a touch of her hand.

When a golden-haired warrior washes up on the shores of her homeland--one of the fearful marauders from the land of the Frozen Sun--Lira helps the wounded man instead of turning him in. After reading his soul, she realizes Reyker is different than his brethren who attack the coasts of Glasnith. He confides in her that he's been cursed with what his people call battle-madness, forced to fight for the warlord known as the Dragon, a powerful tyrant determined to reignite the ancient war that Aillira started.

As Lira and Reyker form a bond forbidden by both their clans, the wrath of the Dragon falls upon them and all of Glasnith, and Lira finds herself facing the same tragic fate as her ancestor. The battle for Lira's life, for Reyker's soul, and for their peoples' freedom has only just begun.

Hi,
I really love the cover which is colorful and gives me Viking Warrior Woman vibes. The attention to detail is wonderful!

The synopsis sounds like my kind of book and I love reading fantasies set in different worlds. Lira sounds like a strong woman and I really hope there will be Dragons!
