THE KHELD KING by L. L. Stephens (COVER REVEAL)
We’re delighted to bring you a cover reveal today for the upcoming sequel to Sordaneon, THE KHELD KING by L.L. Stephens which will be published by Forest Path Books.
Firstly, let’s see what this book is all about and get to know a bit about the author, shall we?
The King is dead. Long live…
THE KHELD KING
The Triempery lies crippled, its godborn princes slaughtered by treachery, its ruling houses desperate to maintain their monopoly of the god-machine Entities.
In the aftermath of the slaughter, Stefan Stauberg-Randolph inherits his grandfather’s throne. Already an outsider because of his Kheld heritage, Stefan sees enemies around every corner—but he particularly fears Dorilian Sordaneon, sole surviving heir of the Rill Entity’s power.
Set upon conflicting paths by betrayal and suspicion, the animosity between the two young rulers could well threaten not only the Triempery’s remaining houses, but the Entities themselves.
L.L. Stephens has been writing science fiction and fantasy for several years. Published works include a debut science fiction novel in the deep dark past and a medical journal, as well as lots of short stories, local brochures, newsletters, and pamphlets for everything from local politicians to an international airport. The Triempery series, which debuted with Sordaneon and continues in The Kheld King, is a six-part series and life’s work.
Now without further ado, here’s the full cover.

We’ll leave you with some words from the author…
“The cover for the first novel, Sordaneon, promised readers a world of power and wealth. I wanted the cover for The Kheld King to deliver a similarly powerful but different vision of danger, grandeur, and foreboding. Larry Rostant created both covers, his stunning vision captures the book’s central elements and theme. Readers will encounter a king who is in over his head — pitted against forces too great for him — and an Entity that terrifies him. Images and symbolism from the book images haunt the cover and I look forward to readers connecting them to the story as it unfolds.”
