MASSIVE squealing over here today, guys!
My best friend and senpai is sharing the INCREDIBLE cover she designed and illustrated of her upcoming novel, Phantom’s Lament!
I have gushed quite a bit on Shadow’s Hand (book one) and have been deeply involved in sharing her stories (because #Kilo) and today is no exception!
Prepare for this awesomeness coming your way this January!
Time is running out for the Shadows.
Exiled from Vaiyene and armed with new information about the Skills, Kilo struggles to restore peace. The flames of war have spread, severing alliances, and dividing the people. With pressure from his friends building, Kilo sets out to confront the False Shadows, vowing at last to find an amicable solution.
Across the lands of Kiriku, Shenrae returns home. But when she does, Vaiyene is not the peaceful refuge she remembers. A rift has spread within the Shadows and not all approve of her actions. Torn between her duty and the ones she loves, Shenrae must face the darker truths of what it means to be a Shadow.
Back in Magoto, Hitori’s patience is nearing its end. Pushed by desperation, the chaos surrounding her begins to spiral, blackening all that she touches. But as the truth behind Hitori’s actions is revealed, the line between right and wrong wavers. Will Kilo and Shenrae be able to stop Hitori from destroying the Kiriku they love? Or will everything be plunged into darkness?
Phantom’s Lament is the second book in the Asian-inspired series, The Shadow’s Creed Saga. If you like stories about noble characters, vivid world building, and character torn between their code of conduct, you’ll love this epic adventure.
