Scions by James Wolanyk – COVER REVEAL
We’re delighted to host the cover reveal for Scions, book three of the Scribe Cycle by James Wolanyk. Before we get to the cover, here’s a general overview of the series for those who aren’t familiar with the Scribe Cycle:
The Southern Death. Kuzalem. Scourge of the Flatlands. The sage who deciphered the dance of the cosmos was known by many names, but to those who knew her as a girl, she was merely Anna.
Born into the ruins of a civil war, Anna’s gift—the ability to leave immortality-granting scars on the flesh of kings and killers alike—shackles her in a life of deified enslavement. But childhood scars blossom into a war for existence itself, with Anna’s every move shrouded in the teachings of cryptic sects and prophecies from dead worlds. From the scorched deserts of Hazan to the lush valleys of Nahora, the sound of war-drums and the shadows of foreign spymasters are never far. It is a war fought in whispers, in blazing ruins, in the mind of every being who gazes upon her revelations.
It is the Scribe Cycle.
Without further ado, here is the cover for book three, Scions!
Scions will be released in April 2019. In the meantime, here’s the official blurb:
Three years have passed since the devastation of Golyna. Anna, once the maker of immortals, continues to fight the evil she unwillingly created through her rune-carving magic. Secreted away in an isolated mountain monastery, she works as a teacher to young scribes, guiding them toward runes that foster peace rather than endless war. So when the tracker who murdered her brother comes to Anna’s redoubt, begging for his eternal runes to be undone, Anna agrees to grant his wish on one condition—that he aid her in rooting out the remnants of Volna, a genocidal regime bent on destruction.
In this brave new world where old foes can become allies, so too can former friends sour into deadly enemies. With the tracker’s help, Anna is propelled into a confrontation with Ramyi, her former apprentice. Grown bitter and disillusioned, Ramyi now wants to lay waste to the world—but not before she completes an apocalyptic ritual that could have dire consequences for all of existence. To stop Ramyi from unleashing chaos, and restore peace to a broken world, Anna must be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Scions, book three of the Scribe Cycle by James Wolanyk, will be released in April 2019.
