I give you the cover! (Huge thanks to True-Blood.Net for my cover reveal!)
The back cover reads:
“I cannot recommend this book, this series, or this author enough.” —True-Blood.Net on The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker
In the beginning, there were lovers: a winged deity of power and light, and a queen of grace and beauty. Phoenix was murdered, his beloved stolen away to the Whisper-world. But their passion inspired the Muses. Through great sacrifice, it could live again.
There are always six, mortal hosts for the divine. Battling spirits through the ages, they defy Darkness, Lord of the Dead. In 1867, a shadow rises. The tide turns against them, and all hope falls on a child of prophecy, an eerie, snow-white girl yet to be born. But her path must be cleared. A Great War is coming, and song, wind and stars whisper that eighteen-year-old Beatrice Smith must give everything to prepare."
Author's Note: For those who have wondered the why and the how, I hope this prequel will be illuminating, bringing together familiar characters in some of their most formative moments, and introducing characters only spoken of in legend. The stage will also be set for what comes next when the 19th century, and the series, draws to a close in the fourth book. For those new to the Strangely Beautiful world, this prequel would be a fine place to jump in before returning to books one and two. Seeds planted, terrible storms will come, but watered ground means life.
Releasing May 2011 - in Trade Paperback and digital - ALONG WITH Trade Paperback reissues of Strangely Beautiful books 1 and 2! All are now available for pre-order.
