I think the winter went by when I blinked.
How can it possibly be time to reveal the next book in the Lila Gray trilogy already? Normally waiting seems like forever, but this one came up fast since I’ve busied myself writing like a madwoman! Not that I’m complaining. We all know how much I love waiting!
This book was very emotional for me to write, since I was so very mean to Lila. I am so thrilled with how it turned out, though, and I’m dying to share it with all of you in October.
To tide you over, here’s a glimpse of Shadowborn.
That’s the question Lila Gray asks every time yet another bad guy tries to destroy the earth, and she learns she’s the only one who can stop it. Once again, something’s on the prowl, leaving hundreds of comatose, soulless victims in its wake.
Couldn’t the deadliest assassins of the Otherworld go after someone else instead of the brand new Queen of the Seelie? One who still hasn’t adapted to her new role.
Lila would ask Liam Kane, King of the Unseelie, for advice, but something’s off with him, too. He’s holding back. In some way. About some thing. In fact, he refuses to tell her what’s going on.
The truth holds Lila back from the greatness of her role—the people she was born to lead—the man who she desperately loves—and the solution to the latest war raging around her.
To find the answers, she’ll need to fight through her own darkness and embark on a journey through her psyche.
If she doesn’t succeed, the Shadowborn will claim not only her world, but her soul.
I can’t tell you just how perfect this cover is. The tone. The darkness. the image itself is right out of the book, right out of my imagination. Sometimes J. Taylor’s talented cover designer makes me think she can read my mind.
What do you think? Would you pick it up to read the back?
