CALL OF THE BONESHIPS by RJ Barker – COVER REVEAL
Dragons have returned to the Hundred Isles. But their return heralds only war and destruction. When a horde of dying slaves are discovered in the bowels of a ship, Shipwife Meas and the crew of the Tide Child find themselves drawn into a vicious plot that will leave them questioning their loyalties and fighting for their lives.
I like Bone ships and cannot lie….
While this sounds like the perfect remix of Sir Mix A Lot’s timeless masterpiece, there’s something missing. And you guessed it…
MOAR bone ships….speaking of which…
The Call of the Bone Ships continues where the titular first book finished, charting a new course through dragon infested waters. And the cover is our first glimpse of the journey ahead, and it immediately captures all that this series lives and breathes and brings to life. Sea, shore, and scale, and a story waiting to lead you beyond the horizon. And knowing RJ Barker I’m sure there’s more than a few surprises in store too….
Speaking of which, the man, the myth, the modern day Ozzy himself had a few words to say about the cover:
‘I loved the cover for The Bone Ships and I love the way this has carried on the theme, that massive fin, something huge moving around the words on the page. And it feels like it’s an artefact, the woodcut feel, like an illuminated manuscript telling the story of another time when something huge, dangerous and truly magnificent lurked beneath the water.Also, that fin. Big fan of that fin.’
Big fan of that fin indeed. Fin. For. The. Win.
