I am very excited to share with you all this amazing cover for "Orphan's Song" by Gillian Adams. It's such a beautiful and intriguing cover, and I can't wait to read the book! I've been following Gillian on her blog Of Battles, Dragons, and Swords of Adamant for a while now. It's one of my very favorite blogs, and she inspired me to get back into blogging after I had given it up. So you might want to go check out her amazing blog here, or perhaps you'd like to participate in the publishing kickstarter for Orphan's Song though Enclave Publishing here.
Here's the blurb for Orphan's Song:
"Every generation has a Songkeeper – one chosen to keep the memory of the Song alive. And in every generation, there are those who seek to destroy the chosen one.
When Birdie’s song attracts the attention of a notorious Khelari soldier, she is captured and forced into a centuries old conflict plagued with ancient secrets and betrayals. Rescued by traveling peddler Amos McElhenny, Birdie flees the clutches of her enemies, determined to discover the truth behind the Song’s power.
Ky Huntyr has stolen many a thing in his time as a street-wise thief and senior member of the Underground—a gang of orphans banded together to survive—but he never thought he would be guilty of successfully stealing a priceless treasure from the Khelari and bringing their wrath on his comrades. Haunted by the tragic consequences of his raid, Ky joins Birdie and Amos in hopes of drawing the Khelari after him to keep the Underground safe.
But war soon threatens all of Leira, and the enemy is closing in. When Amos’ shadowed past threatens to undo them all, Birdie is forced to face the destiny that awaits her as the Songkeeper of Leira."
Now doesn't that sound like the kind of book that you would love to get lost in? To add to your bookshelf? Recommend to friends? Read over and over? Memorize your favorite sections? It certainly sounds like that kind of book to me. I can't wait for this book to be released! How about you?
