This post comes a little late. Given my new furchild, whom has promptly taken a lot of my attention, I’ve been trying to get back into a sort of ‘normal’ pattern, though as any pet owner would know that takes a little while to do. Since I am now in a somewhat-regular frame of mind, I can update you all on what’s happened recently!
Death, the third Brotherhood book, came out on April 5th. It’s currently available pretty much everywhere known to man (except Google Play, which is a market that seems impossible to conquer at this point.) The cover, done by my amazing artist Philip R. Rogers, details a pivotal point in the book in which Odin must face one of his greatest demons of all.
Here is the front cover by itself:
And here is the wraparound:
In Blood, Odin left home in search of his dream.
In Sword, he attained the status of knight.
In Death, Odin will lose it all.
After a deadly attack on one of Ornala’s greatest settlements leaves not only the country in disrepair, but claims one of the most important people in Odin’s life, there seems little left to live for. Grief-stricken and out of his mind, he flees the kingdom with his eyes set on discovering the true meaning of Death from the Elves.
Along the way, he befriends a fellow Halfling who leads him through the Elven forest and to the capital. There, Odin is taken under the wing of a sexless creature, whose vast magical knowledge leads him toward the discovery that may change his life.
The Elven Book of the Dead, written and created by the infamous Dark Elves, promises a reward Odin can only dream of.
There’s only one problem. Hidden within the depths of the Elven castle and guarded by the greatest of magics, it will take a feat of willpower unlike anything Odin has ever attempted to secure the book.
With nothing left to lose, Odin must make a choice: to return home and begin life anew, or to risk the greatest magical offense in human history to bring back the most important person in his life.
The other books in the series (Blood and Sword)are available everywhere Death is, so if you’ve picked up the first novel (or the first two,) you’ll definitely want to pick this one up as well. This is my favorite of the three thus far.
Philip Rogers has outdone himself again with the cover for the third in my dark fantasy series, Death. Given the fact that I can’t give too much away, I’ll just say that the novel follows our hero after he loses a monumental purpose of his life, during which time he succumbs to madness.
This is the cover for the third Brotherhood book, which will be going on sale across varying outlets within the next few days.
