Hello! I’m sorry for my extended absence, but I’ve been working on the final Smoke and Mirrors book for the last few months. The hard part (writing and editing) is done, so I can finally share some fun things!
First of all, the title! The final book will be called:
THE SLEEPING ANCIENT
It took me a long time to come up with that one. I can’t tell you who or what the sleeping ancient is, but I can say it’s a character we haven’t met yet.
I have another treat for you, the blurb! This is full of spoilers for the last two books, so if you haven’t read THE WHISPERING ECHOES or RUN AND TOUCH THE SKY, maybe don’t read this?
(Last chance to look away!)
The unthinkable has happened: A dragon was slain, her death used to free the three most powerful and dangerous magicians in the world, and Irina was powerless to stop it. Now she must pick up the broken pieces and prepare for a battle she seems destined to lose.
But all is not lost.
Hope comes in the form of Nerine, a girl from a faraway land, and her army of dragons. Irina and Nerine know the only way to win this is to work together by uniting their ragtag team of friends, which is easier said than done. Tensions flare, dark secrets from their pasts are revealed, and tears are shed as the heroes struggle to put aside their differences and decide on their next course of action.
The road forward is not easy. In Irina’s most dangerous adventure yet, she travels to lands both new and familiar, learning to accept the fledging magic that’s inside of her. In a race against time, with more than one life at stake, failure is not an option.
When the curtain falls on the final Smoke and Mirrors book, who will be left to take a bow?
And finally, I’m pleased to say the book will be coming this May! That’s not too far away! There will be a cover reveal in April, which I’m super excited about. I really enjoyed writing this one and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!
