Sanyare: The Winter Warrior by Megan Haskell – COVER REVEAL
I once heard advice that I shouldn’t include a snarling dog on the cover of a book. Why? Because the dog lovers of the world would be offended.
I ignored that advice.
As a dog lover myself, I decided that it was important to be clear: there is a wolf in this book, and he’s the bad guy. I mean, if they’re going to be offended by anything, it should be the violence and destruction the giant sentient wolf wreaks on the Winter Realm. At least now readers have a warning.
Sanyare: The Winter Warrior is the fourth book in The Sanyare Chronicles, a dark fantasy adventure set in the nine faerie realms. As with the rest of the series, I hired Deranged Doctor Design to create the cover, and as always, I was thrilled with the result. Not only did they feature the main setting as they have in other books, we found the same cover model in a pose that included a fur-hooded cloak. With a few tweaks to the styling, it was perfect for The Winter Warrior.
The other thing I love about this cover is the juxtaposition of fire and ice. Maybe that’s beginning to be cliché, but Rie’s magic is integral to plot, and I thought the image combined with her pose showed both strength and vulnerability, key elements to her characterization in The Winter Warrior.
And with that, I give you Sanyare: The Winter Warrior!
Here’s the book description:
Her choice won the war, but may have cost her future…
Rie should be praised as a hero. She won the Battle of the Arches and stopped the next Great War. Instead, she’s hiding out under the strict watch of her mentor, Lord Garamaen Sanyaro.
But when Sanyaro’s own past comes back to haunt him, they must journey into the hostile territory of the Winter Realm to bring an old enemy to justice. Will she be able to stop the terror before lives are lost? Or will the choices of the past demand an even greater sacrifice?
Sanyare: The Winter Warrior is the thrilling fourth installment in The Sanyare Chronicles. If you like fast-paced action-packed fantasy with kick-butt heroines, snarky sidekicks, and spectacular magic-fueled fireballs, you’ll love this book!
