The Wounded Ones by G.D. Penman – COVER REVEAL
“Sully stubbed out the cigar like the ashtray was her mother’s face. The last coils of smoke twisted in the air to join the geometric patterns that drifted in a blue cloud around her. There were three assassins this time, and they weren’t nearly enough.”
Meerkat Press has revealed the cover of THE WOUNDED ONES, the second book of the WITCH OF EMPIRE urban-fantasy, alt-history noir series by G. D. Penman.
Demons and serial killers are Iona “Sully” Sullivan’s bread and butter, but nothing could have prepared her to face off against the full weight of the British Empire at the height of its power. With the War for American Independence in full swing, she finds even her prodigious talents pushed beyond their limits when citizens of the American Colonies begin vanishing amidst rumours of crop circles, hydra sightings and worse.
Through a wild and lethal adventure that will see her clashing with the Empire around the world and beyond, the only constants in Sully’s life are an undead girlfriend, a giant demon crow that seems to be trying to court her, regular assassination attempts by enemies on all sides and the cold certainty that nothing and nobody is going to make it out of this war in one piece.
THE WOUNDED ONES will be released on October 31st 2019. In the meantime, check out book one, THE YEAR OF THE KNIFE.
