MTMC: Cover Reveal City of Veils by S. Usher Evans

This is me

I’ve been so out of the loop, its ridiculous.  I haven’t been on twitter, I haven’t been posting, I’ve been completely lost to my world. I now have 6 wonderful, infuriating children. They take up the vast majority of my time and I love it. I really miss blogging though. I wish I could find time too read more and share my love.

Today, I want to share a book that I’ve been hearing about for MONTHS. I’m excited enough about it that I drug myself out of my hiatus and STAYED UP LATE to share it with you. This book looks awesome and I absolutely love the cover. Don’t believe me? Check it out just after the synopsis!

CITY OF VEILS

For the past three years, Brynna has been patrolling the streets of Forcadel as a masked vigilante, protecting the innocent and beating up bad guys. Her current target is Lord Beswick, a slumlord businessman who keeps the townsfolk in a vicious poverty cycle. But one fateful evening, she’s captured by Felix, the captain of the king’s guard, and told a shocking truth: her father and brother are dead, and she needs to hang up her mask and become queen.

Before long, she negotiates a deal with Felix: attend to her royal duties during the day and continue her vigilante mission to take out Lord Beswick at night—at least until her coronation. But the politics of Forcadel are as volatile as the streets, and Brynna isn’t sure whom she can trust in the castle. With two royals dead in less than a month, she must use all her wits to make sure she isn’t the third.

The City of Veils is the first book in the Princess Vigilante trilogy, an epic YA Fantasy from S. Usher Evans, author of the Lexie Carrigan Chronicles, Madion War Trilogy, and Empath. It will be released by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing on April 16, 2019.

I was lucky enough to see this cover months ago when Elise came to Houston and I’ve been waiting so anxiously for the day that I could share it with you. I love this cover! It’s creepy and otherworldly and perfectly fits with the feeling of Alchemists of Loom. I just can’t wait to read this next installment!

On to the reveal!

Cvareh returns home to his sky world of Nova with the genius crafter Arianna as his temperamental guest. The mercurial inventor possesses all the Xin family needs to turn the tides of a centuries-old power struggle, but the secrets she harbors must be earned with trust — hard to come by for Ari, especially when it comes to Dragons. On Nova, Ari finds herself closer to exacting vengeance against the traitor who killed everything — and everyone – she once loved. But before Ari can complete her campaign of revenge, the Crimson Court exposes her shadowed past and reveals something even more dangerous sparking between her and Cvareh.

While Nova is embroiled in blood sport and political games, the rebels on Loom prepare for an all-out assault on their Dragon oppressors. Florence unexpectedly finds herself at the forefront of change, as her unique blend of skills — and quick-shooting accuracy — makes her a force to be reckoned with. For the future of her world, she vows vengeance against the Dragons.
 
Before the rebellion can rise, though, the Guilds must fall.

Exclusive Excerpt!

“They’re coming from the front!” Nora screamed over the crescendo of the engine gaining speed. On cue, the train
lurched as an endwig was splattered to a bloody mess on the point of the engine’s pilot.
 
“Bloody cogs,” Florence cursed. The Vicar Alchemist had sent her to protect the mission as the Revolver, but one of
her wasn’t going to be enough. “I’m going to the engine.”
 
“What are we going to do?” The usually self-sure Nora had the face of a cornered hare.
 
“You’re going to fight.” Florence passed her a weapon.
 
“I’ve never shot a gun before.”
 
“Now is a great time to learn.”
 
“I’m an Alchemist!”
 
Seriously, Florence was a breath away from shooting the woman herself. “You’re dead if you don’t adapt! There’s three more bombs exactly like the ones you just used, right there. Just fend them off until the train gets up to speed. But don’t use any other disks.”
 
Florence had no more time to waste as the train lurched again. They just had to survive until the train reached full
speed. For all the endwig were, they certainly couldn’t keep up with a locomotive.
 
She hoped.
 
The wind whipped her hair around her face as she stuck her head from the train car. Florence reached out for the
ladder to the right of the door, scaling up before another endwig could emerge. She swung up just in time as an explosion nearly blew her foot clean off.
 
“By the five guilds, you two only had three bombs!” she screamed over the wind, not knowing if they could hear.
“Ration them a bit!”
 
Standing, Florence looked in horror at the tracks ahead. Dozens of endwig lined the path, running eagerly to meet the train. She loaded six canisters at once.
 
Jumping to the tender, Florence lost her footing atop the moving train car. A nail snapped clean off as she sought a
grip that would prevent her from being thrown to certain death. If she fell now, she would never get back on the vessel. She’d be torn limb from limb.
 
Gritting her teeth, Florence rose to her knees, shooting two endwig in the process. She wedged herself between two
grooves on the top of the tender. Blood pooled around her shins as she dug them into the metal for a grip where there was none, but she was stable enough to take aim, and that meant she could open fire.
 
Five shots down, and Florence reloaded her gun. Endwig came relentlessly like a never-ending nightmare. But the train didn’t gain any more speed. She repeated the process, waiting for the vessel to be like her bullets, whizzing through the night at deadly speeds.
 
“Anders, now would be a great time to open her up!” she screamed.
 
There was no reply.
 
“Anders, Rotus, we need speed, get us out of here faster!”
 
Five long claws curled around the door of the engine in answer. Florence watched in horror as the white silhouette of
an endwig, dotted in the black blood of a Chimera, pulled itself from the engine room. Florence swallowed hard.
 
They were without Rivet and Raven, stumbling through the darkness, enemies at all sides. She raised her gun
slowly, looking fearlessly at the face of death itself. Her revolver was steady over the rocking of the train.
 
“You think I’m not used to this?” Her mouth curled into a mad grin. “I’ve been fighting my way out of the darkness my whole life. And you’re not going to stop me now.”
 
Gunshots echoed through the forest.

In pursuit of his goals, he has found himself protege to Raylynn Westwind, notable Guard member and favorite of Prince Baldair. He has fought for two years in the sweltering North and now prepares to embark on a mission on behalf of the Guard that could secure his long-sought membership. It’s the opportunity Craig has been waiting for, until Raylynn’s attention turns toward another swordsman, Daniel Taffl. Daniel has always been a man of modest aspirations. As a farmer’s son from the East, he seeks a soldier’s wage to support a future for the woman of his dreams when he returns from the front lines. It isn’t until he’s conscripted into Craig’s mission that he learns his sword-craft has caught the eyes of the powers above him. Craig sees his mission as an opportunity to impress the guard and exert his authority over Daniel. Daniel sees it merely as the chance to secure a more financially stable future. Their goals seem too simple to go awry. But, in the perilous jungles of the North, luck is something both men find to be in short supply. THE FARMERS WAR is the final installment in the Golde Guard Trilogy, prequel stories to the AIR AWAKENS SERIES: Book One, THE CROWN’S DOG Book […]

Cover Reveal: Wildwood by Jadie Jones

I’m so excited to share this cover with you today! It’s not often that a cover really grabs me. This one I really liked. It also has an intriguing blurb! I’d love to hear about it if this catches your attention. I will be on the lookout for more information about this one in the future. Tanzy Hightower is not crazy. At least that’s what she tells herself. She also tells herself that the shadows stalking her in the woods aren’t living, murderous beings. On the third anniversary of her father’s death, Tanzy revisits the woods and the shadows that took him. She quickly realizes those monsters lurking in the dark now have their sights set on her. Neither Tanzy nor life as she knows it escapes unchanged when she is introduced to a world…unseen. Two strangers seem too willing to help her navigate her new reality: Vanessa Andrews, a doctor’s trophy wife with a southern drawl, and Lucas, a quiet, scarred man with timing that borders on either perfect or suspect. But Tanzy has secrets of her own. Desperate for answers and revenge, Tanzy must put her faith in their hands as her past comes calling and the shadows close in. With wild blood coursing through her veins, will Tanzy’s choices shed light on the shadows of her past, or will they bring forth the darkness within her? Scroll […]
