All good things must come to an end, and today I’m sharing the cover of the final Smoke and Mirrors book, THE SLEEPING ANCIENT. When I first started writing THE FADING DUSK, I never imagined I would end up with a six book series. I figured it would be another trilogy, with maybe a novella containing some short stories. But after I started writing book two, things began shifting drastically from my intended outline, and I knew I was going to need another full length novel in order to tell Irina’s story properly.
And what a story it’s been.
THE SLEEPING ANCIENT releases May 22nd. It’s the longest book in the series, and I found it hard to say goodbye to these characters. But I’m satisfied with their ending, and I hope you will be, too!
And now, because I’ve had you wait long enough, here’s the cover!
Once again, Regina Wamba of Mae I Design has blown me away with this gorgeous, stunning cover! All the little details are perfect, and I love that Irina is looking straight at you this time. Irina’s growth throughout this series is so important, and I wanted a cover that symbolizes how strong she’s become. She looks absolutely badass and I love it.
Let’s take a look at the full wrap!
Yeah, I’m in love.
The entire series! Don’t they look amazing together?
