About the Book

A PIRATE ON THE RUN

Vagabond seafarer Evan Strangward can move wind, wave, and weather, but his magical abilities can’t protect him forever from the brutal Empress Celestine. As Celestine’s relentless bloodsworn armies grow, Evan travels to the Fells to warn the queendom that an invasion is imminent. If he can’t convince the wolf queen to take a stand, he knows that the Seven Realms will fall, and his last sanctuary will be destroyed. Among the dead will be the one person Evan can’t stand to lose. 

A WARRIOR PRINCESS

Meanwhile, the queen’s formidable daughter, Princess Alyssa ana’Raisa, is already a prisoner aboard the Empress’ ship, sailing east. Lyss may be the last remaining hope of bringing down the Empress from within her own tightly controlled stronghold.

THE STORM OF WAR

Intricately interwoven storylines converge in this gripping novel as the warring Seven Realms struggle to unite against a horrific tyrant.

Very exciting! I knew it would be Evan from the title, but it's nice to get a visual on him. I am a little disappointed that he's more clearly defined than Jenna and Alyssa on the other covers, it seems strange to me. I also think the description is a little bland (the last two were better teasers--this one you don't really gain any new info if you read the last two). But still exciting! I love the series!

I absolutely love the cover! Evan looks so close to how I pictured him - but better - I love the well dressed pirate look! This cover actually looks even better than the previous two!! And the synopsis is great - I can't wait to see Evan use his power and to learn more about him, the magemarks and pirates!! And I'm happy it looks like we'll know what happened to Lyss (and probably Breon with her!). But I wish there were hints about the other characters like Ash and Hal... But it does say the storylines will converge, so I am sooo excited for that!!
