Today is a super fun day! It’s time for the cover, and title, reveal for one of my favorite books series ever – The Modern Tales of NaFianna by Hazel West. 🙂 Seriously, it’s an alternate urban fantasy with Irish guys, fast cars, swords, magic, and rock ballads. What is not to love?
So here we go with the cover for….
Scars of War
After the events on Samhain Eve things have calmed down for High King Eamon and his Fianna. The Unseelie Court is under new rule, and Eamon is happily married—and with an heir on the way! But just when it seems like things couldn’t be better, reports of changelings keep coming into BPAFF (Bureau of Protection Against Fair Folk). With the risk of children being changed out in their cribs, especially when a royal heir is weeks from being born, Eamon enlists the help of Aeden Mac Cool, Commander of Na Fianna, and Cassandra Whalen, Director of BPAFF, to deal with the threat before it escalates. Riots, Faerie rebels, and road trips with the King of the Unseelie—it’s just a typical day, right?
Release Date: August 31st
Check out the rest of the series!
Also included for today is an excerpt! There’s actually six different excerpts floating around as part of this cover/title reveal, so make sure you stop by Hazel’s blog for the ordering and links to each one.
The figure started and spun around so that I glimpsed a pale face under the hood and a snarl on the lips of the man. I lunged forward to grab him but he jerked back only to trip over Rory’s outstretched leg. The Fae man twisted agilely and landed on his back to protect the bundle he held, a soundless whoosh of air escaping his lungs.
“You’re under arrest,” I told him, reaching for my cuffs. “Come quietly.”
But he obviously had other ideas and decided to sweep my legs from under me and bolt for the window. I cursed, hauling myself up and tripping over a pile of stuffed animals as I drew my knife, throwing it so that it snagged his cloak and pinned it to the wall, stopping him for a moment.
“I got him!” Rory yelled and rushed forward, grabbing the figure just as he tugged his cloak free and leapt out the window, taking Rory with him. My assistant tumbled from the window with a cry and I hurried over to lean out of it just in time to see the Fae man disappearing over the fence and Rory groaning on the ground. I slipped out the window to land next to him, pulling him into a sitting position as he cradled his arm.
“I think I broke it,” he said forlornly.
I sighed and patted his shoulder, making him wince. “Yeah, looks like it. Come on then, let’s get you taken care of. That’s all we’re going to be able to do tonight.”
Anyone who comments on the posts will be entered for the giveaway to win ebook copies of the first two books! You can leave an email address or come to Hazel’s blog on the 23rd for the announcement of the winner. If you leave comments on multiple comments, each comment will be counted as an entry.
I’m so excited for this book! I beta read it for Hazel and for those who have read the rest of the series, it is just as epic! And for those who haven’t read it, ask me how epic it is and I will fangirl in the comments. 😛
Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday! It’s my first day of my professional adult job, so this week will probably be a little crazy. Hopefully I will see you back here on Thursday for regularly scheduled programming. 🙂
