Today I am excited to be helping Trudie Skies, author of The Thirteenth Hour to launch the cover for the next book in her series, The Cruel Gods!!
The first book in the series, The Thirteenth Hour is a book I thoroughly enjoyed – read my review here.
Book 2 in the series will be called The Children of Chaos.
Here is the blurb:
When the saints call, the sinners answer.
Chaos stalks the steam-powered city of Chime and threatens the existence of the gods and their domains. Kayl swore to protect Chime’s mortals from their gods’ cruel whims, but when she agrees to represent the mortals of a god long thought dead, Kayl is thrust into a political role that goes against everything she’s ever stood for.
As the newly appointed ambassador to the god of time, Quen’s goal is clear – protect Chime and the domains by any means necessary. But as the gods make their demands, Quen is caught between his loyalties and his conscience.
To ensure a future for all mortals, Kayl and Quen must unite the gods against the threat of chaos and decide what they’re willing to sacrifice for Chime – before the gods choose for them.
For the gods are capricious and have their own divine plans.
I’m really looking forward to this one!
And finally…here’s the gorgeous cover!!!
