It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Beyond a Darkened Shore by Jessica Leake + Giveaway (US/Canada)
Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for BEYOND A DARKENED SHORE by Jessica Leake, releasing April 10, 2018 from Harper Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Jessica:
This is the exclusive cover reveal for BEYOND A DARKENED SHORE, and I’m so excited to finally share it with you! Waiting on the cover reveal is a special type of torture for authors because, at least in my case, I got to see this GORGEOUS COVER months ago, but I couldn’t show or tell anyone outside of my immediate family. And there are only so many times your mom or your spouse can tell you it’s LITERALLY THE BEST COVER EVER before you become a little desperate for everyone else to see it. It’s perfect for this book because it’s dark, ethereal, and basically everything I could ever hope for. I hope you love it, too!
Ready to see?
Scroll, YABCers! Scroll!
Here it is!

BEYOND A DARKENED SHORE
The ancient land of Éirinn is mired in war. Ciara, princess of Mide, can barely remember a time when Northmen weren’t plundering the shores of her divided homeland.
With her intimidating ability to control her enemies’ minds and actions, Ciara has managed to keep her people safe. But lately, a mysterious crow has been appearing to Ciara, whispering warnings of an even darker threat. Although her clansmen dismiss her visions as superstition, Ciara fears this coming evil will destroy not just Éirinn but the entire world.
It isn’t until Ciara captures Leif, a young Northman leader, during his failed siege of Mide that she discovers she’s not the only one who has these prophetic visions. Leif is Ciara’s enemy, but together they may be the only ones who can save their world. And as battle grows closer, their alliance borne out of necessity starts to become something more.
With evil rising around them, they must do what it takes to defend the land they love…even if it means making the greatest sacrifice of all.
Jessica Leake is the author of the adult novels Arcana and the Order of the Eternal Sun, both with Skyhorse. She worked for years as a psychotherapist, but even though she loved her clients, she couldn't stop writing.

The cover freaks me out a little, because those birds are so intelligent! The summary seems interesting, although I don't usually like books with difficult-to-pronounce names.
OOOOO. The cover is so dark and ominous. Love it!!! Can't wait to read this story. It sounds spooky and refreshing.
That cover is absolutely perfect for the synopsis.
The second I read the summary I was hooked. Unearthly abilities, prophetic visions, mythical, magical lands, a rising evil intent on destroying the entire world!
Umm... Do I really have to wait until 2018 to have this book in my hands?! ?
This is one of the coolest covers I've ever seen. The world sounds dark and gripping and I cannot wait to read this book!
