It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: A Light in the Sky by Shina Reynolds + Giveaway (International)

YABC-cover-reveal-green

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

A Light in the Sky by Shina Reynolds,

releasing early 2020 from Wink Road Press!

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

Hi YABCers, thanks for joining me for the cover reveal of A LIGHT IN THE SKY.

A LIGHT IN THE SKY is the first book in a high-flying new fantasy series, and my debut as an author. During my first round of working with the amazing Micaela Alcaino, this cover instantly stood out to me, with its striking contrast between light and dark. Winged horses play a pivotal role in the story, so I was immediately drawn to the idea of a flying horse as the central icon for the cover. This story is about passion, betrayal, and finding your light, and this cover is every bit as bold as the story it represents. I hope you love it, and that you’ll enjoy reading my atmospheric adventure, A LIGHT IN THE SKY, when it comes out in early 2020!

~Shina Reynolds

About the Book

Red Queen meets The Scorpio Races in a high-flying new fantasy series filled with passion, betrayal, and adventure from debut author Shina Reynolds.

Seventeen-year-old Aluma Banks has always dreamed of soaring freely through the skies astride a powerful winged steed of her own. But flying is a privilege granted only to the Riders of the king’s Empyrean Cavalry, the aerial warriors who defend the borders of their land from the fallen Kingdom of Laithlann.

Each year, Rider hopefuls across Eirelannia compete in the Autumn Tournament for the honor of joining the Cavalry. Aluma, trained to ride and fight by her retired Empyrean Rider father, knows she has what it takes to prove herself worthy—if only her father hadn’t forbidden her from joining their ranks, in the hope of protecting his only daughter from the perils of war.

When Aluma’s father is tragically injured just before the Tournament, she finds herself unexpectedly thrust into this year’s competition. But as Aluma begins to pursue her dreams, she learns devastating secrets about the king and his never-ending war with Laithlann. In her quest for the truth, Aluma discovers a power deep within herself that may be the only way to save Eirelannia and the people she loves from the darkness that threatens to consume them all.
