Hey there, Dark Dreamers,
There is so much happening, I can hardly keep up. We are less than three months away from OF SCIONS AND MEN being unleashed upon the world. With this unleashing comes an amazing cover. The wondrously creative minds over at Curiosity Quills worked hard until they created a cover that not only reflected the distopian grittiness of the book, but also the magical urban fantasy time. Also, Rowan is kicking major butt on it. BUT, I can’t show you all that today. Soon. December 7 will be the huge dual blast reveal.
Until then you can add both Gyre and Of Scions and Men to Goodreads using these links:
But this is Cyber Monday, so you deserve a two-for-one special for your internet money. So today I will tease not only OF SCIONS AND MEN’s cover but also the exciting Atlantean YA novel GYRE by the talented Jessica Gunn.
Before covers get uncovered next week, we have some teasers we’d like to share with you. So, here they are!
Of Scions and Men:
If you’d like to help with this cover reveal by spreading the word through a HTML-ready post, or via Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, please fill out this form below! We are SO excited to share our covers with you!
OF SCIONS AND MEN by Courtney Sloan
Geopolitical babysitting while arresting preternatural killers, it’s just the daily grind for Scion Rowan Brady. Brash and sarcastic, Rowan has sold her life, her career and her very blood to the controlling paranormal ruling class of America, all to make sure her kid brother can eat. Now she uses her powers as a scion to kick the ass of any preternatural creature idiotic enough to break the rules and prey upon humanity without a license. All it costs her is her freedom and a pint or two per week to her new Master.
But juggling her job and duties becomes even tougher when she is tasked with keeping a contingency of diplomats from Canada from getting gnawed on. However, negotiations for an International Blood Exchange are interrupted when bodies start showing up.
Now Rowan must rely on her talent and wit to defend the society she despises to save the lives she’s sworn to protect. But as she stumbles into the truth, she chances becoming a target of not only these killers, but of her own government. With shifters, ghosts, vampires and psychics all watching her, can she stop the killings before she is silenced?
GYRE by Jessica Gunn
Chelsea didn’t try to teleport. All she wanted was to play the Battle of the Bands show. But after accidentally teleporting onto classified Navy vessel SeaSatellite5, all she’s rocking is the boat. Once it’s sorted out that Chelsea’s not a threat, SeaSat5’s top scientist offers Chelsea a position on the crew as an archaeology intern. Dr. Saint studies people with powers, believing them to be descendants of Atlantean refugees, except Chelsea’s powers are beyond anything on previous record.
While great for everyone else onboard, the miracle of Chelsea is Trevor’s worst nightmare. The same girl who’d given him a brief lifeline to sanity three months ago literally fell from the sky, under a mile of ocean, and onto the very station where he’s employed. Making matters worse, Trevor’s family are Lemurians, Atlantis’s enemy, and Chelsea’s presence is unpredicted—a wrench in an already unstable situation. But Trevor wants no part of his family’s war. The only thing he wants is Chelsea, Atlantean or not.
Days into Chelsea’s sudden appearance, SeaSatellite5 uncovers Atlantean ruins and a massive artifact cache, placing its entire, hundred-man crew in the crosshairs of an ancient war. There are those who want the Atlantean relics inside the ruins destroyed, and only Trevor knows the treasures for what they really are: Link Pieces, tools used by the ancient civilizations for their time-travel war.
With lies and shifting alliances abound, Chelsea and Trevor will have to think fast in order to save the station. If they don’t, the Lemurians will seize the artifacts and Atlantis will be destroyed forever.
