And here it is - behold my gorgeous new cover for Mesmer (Book #1: Sanctuary):
Mesmer (Book #1: Sanctuary) is slated for release in the beginning of May 2012. Here's a brief synopsis:
A hidden kingdom in a forbidden forest. A realm she can’t escape without the trust of a mage. But trust and magic make complicated allies – when time is running out.
When Lea escapes ruthless pursuers within the shadows of a dark forest, she unwittingly stumbles upon an enchanted kingdom. But Verlaine is not the sanctuary it appears to be. And when its magi sovereign refuses to let her leave, her encounters with strange sorcery and malicious fey become the least of Lea's problems. Soon, Lea must find a way to outwit Gabriel Amarinth’s web of enchantment without betraying who – and what – she really is; and before a traitor can destroy all she’s fought to protect in her beloved home kingdom of Lorien.
Oh, I adore the cover for Book #1. It depicts so beautifully the atmosphere of the book. I've been dreaming of seeing it out there for so long that I can't believe it's actually completed! May I say, I'm over the moon:)
The cover reveals for Books #2 and #3 should be out very soon (in preparation for releases in June and July 2012). Do follow me via the blog, twitter or facebook, or my brand new website, for latest news on the trilogy. Happy reading to all:)
