Read The Fantasy Hive's Cover Reveal for We Ride The Storm

Right from the beginning, I knew I wanted to have the point of view characters on the covers of this series, but that was immediately a problem because I don’t have a visual imagination. I don’t know what my characters look like. To me they are a collection of words and traits and motivations and feelings all wrapped up in… fuzziness, and it hurts my brain to try to focus that into a proper image. It was easy for Rah on the cover of We Ride The Storm because as a people the Levanti are well described. But Cassandra? I couldn’t have even said with any certainty what colour her hair was,

Fortunately, John Anthony Di Giovanni is a delight to work with and is more than capable of visualizing for me, so I was more excited than nervous to see the finished product. Finally I might get an idea of what she looks like. (She would still be a fuzzy collection of words and traits and motivations and feelings in my mind, but at least I could point to the cover if anyone asked.) As with its predecessor, Shawn T. King, would be doing the cover design for We Lie With Death.

Unlike with the cover of We Ride The Storm, we went through hardly any sketches for this. There really seemed only one way to capture the essence of Cassandra in a single image - doing what she does best:


So without further ado, John, Shawn and I would like to present the full cover of Book Two of The Reborn Empire, We Lie With Death.

Official Book Blurb: Into Kisia’s conquered north, a Levanti empire is born.

Loyal to the new emperor, Dishiva e’Jaroven must tread the line between building a new life and clinging to the old. Only Gideon can lead them, but when he allies himself with a man returned from the dead it will challenge all she thinks she knows and everything she wants to believe.

Now empress of nothing, Miko is more determined than ever to fight for her people, yet with her hunt for allies increasingly desperate, she may learn too late that power lies not in names but in people.

Rah refused to bow to the Levanti emperor, but now abandoned by the Second Swords he must choose whether to fight for his people, or his soul. Will honour be his salvation, or lead to his destruction?

Sold to the Witchdoctor, Cassandra’s only chance of freedom is in his hands, but when her fate becomes inextricably linked to Empress Hana, her true nature could condemn them both.

There is no calm after the storm.
