INFERNAL BONES by Jonathan Smidt – COVER REVEAL
As some of you may know, Jonathan Smidt has been hard at work clickity-clacking away on the sequel to his debut novel, Bone Dungeon, which he released last year. A darkly charming tale of skeletal monsters, heroic (and not-so-heroic) adventurers, and evil necromancers, Bone Dungeon was (and is) a fine example of LitRPG dungeon core at its best.
The audiobook – produced by LitRPG fan-favorite studio Soundbooth Theater – was released last month and is going down a storm with listeners, rightly so. Still, fans of book one are loudly clamoring for a sequel.
Now, the time has finally come to reveal that sequel. Behold: Infernal Bones, book 2 of the Elemental Dungeon series!
Following the theme set by the first book, the cover for the second again showcases the entrance to a dungeon. However, while Bone Dungeon’s cover revealed the entrance to the Bone Dungeon, Infernal Bones’ cover is very different. The cover is meant to tease some of the content, and big reveals, inside, while giving readers an immediate understanding that things in book two are going to get a tad…. chaotic 😉.
If you want to know more, here’s the official blurb!
Ryan has died, been reborn as a dungeon core, defeated a necromancer, and made a number of friends along the way. Life, well un-life, is good.
However, everything changed when the demons attacked.
With his dungeon town in danger and cultists scheming in the shadows, Ryan must decide whether to draw upon the darker side of his own nature – unlocking powers far greater than anything he has accessed before.
Something his new dungeon fairy seems suspiciously excited about.
With his favorite adventurer, Blake, slowly accepting his new powers as a Specter of Balance, Ryan learns being a darkness dungeon means a lot more than just bones, zombies, and skeletal fight club. Apparently, the power granted by God of Death encompasses much, much more.
Unfortunately, Ryan learns the hard way that some things should remain dead…
Jonathan is super excited (his words) and anxious about the upcoming release, and is impatiently waiting to unleash his second novel upon the world! If, like him, you’re feeling a bit impatient, he does have a web serial (DCO: Dungeon Core Online), which he updates weekly over on Royal Road. (If you become a Patron of Jonathan’s, you’ll be lucky enough to gain early access to new chapters every week!)
Infernal Bones releases February 3rd as an ebook and paperback. Audio will follow later, and is being done once again by the amazing Soundbooth Theater.
And if for some reason you want to chat with the author, rumor is he spends a lot of time on his Discord.
INFERNAL BONES (Elemental Dungeon #2) will be released on February 3rd 2020. Pre-order it here.
