Release Date – October 10th, 2020.
I’m genuinely really excited to share this cover reveal with you alongside Storytellers on Tour! I really enjoyed the first book in The Dead Sagas (A Ritual of Bone) which you can catch up with my review on here.
I’ve made my own promotional design as a backdrop to accompany the front cover reveal – the full cover spread is also below, which you have to check out! As a full length picture the artwork is even more impressive than the front alone. Keep reading below the cover reveal for a synopsis of the story and where you can pre-order the book.
The cover art was created by Andrey Vasilchenko and I have to say it has me even more excited to crack on with A Ritual of Flesh. It really captures the feel of this series. If you haven’t heard about it, or want to know more, you can check out the synopsis below and a little bit about the author, Lee Conley (really nice guy)
As evil ravages the north and the dead walk, all eyes fall to Arn… The apprentice journeys south, home to the College, unaware of the dark events that transpired in the High Passes after his departure. His leg in ruins, and haunted by watching shadows, the College council in Arn awaits him, but he does not travel south alone.
Arnulf and his warriors must travel to Arn also, with tidings for the king of the risen dead and the terrible curse which has destroyed all that he knew. Arnulf seeks vengeance upon the College, but must choose wisely if he is to save his son.
Meanwhile in the west, Bjorn and his strange Wildman companion report back to High Lord Archeon at Oldstones with grim news of cannibal Stonemen encroaching from the Barrens, but is embroiled in news of war and invasion as Archeon requests his service once more.
In the capital sickness awaits them all, Nym has fled to the city and must now continue her struggle for survival on the plague ridden streets of Arn, keeping all who she cares for safe from the halls of Old Night.
The many threads of this Saga converge on the city of Arn, but amid plague, invasion and terror, a greater darkness is looming. Dark forces are seeking to unleash evil upon Arnar, honour and renown is all, and sword, axe and shield is all that stands between the living and the grasping hands of the dead.
