THE GREATWOOD PORTAL by Dorian Hart – COVER REVEAL
We’re delighted to present the cover for book three in Dorian Hart’s HEROES OF SPIRA series: THE GREATWOOD PORTAL!
The books have been described as ‘classic fantasy done right’, and this cover certainly seems to epitomise that!
Here’s what Dorian had to say about the artist:

Meanwhile, Morningstar must ready her team of Ellish dream warriors to battle the vicious Aktallian Dreamborn, who continues to harass Abernathy and the archmagi. And Aravia must master the Crosser’s Maze, the most powerful and complex magical artifact ever created.
What could go wrong?
According to the goblin shaman Irligg, Horn’s Company is destined both to succeed and to fail in their quest to save the world of Spira. Kibi always says there’s no such thing as destiny, but as the forces of Charagan prepare for Naradawk’s invasion, there’s a hidden thumb on the scales of fate…
