It’s time for the second day in a row with a (late 😶) cover reveal from Shay!
(yes, if you haven’t figured it out already, I’m about a week later than everyone else who participated in these reveals. I had to push them back a bit so I could wrap up my final school assignments for the semester before attempting to get involved with blogging again.)
This time I get to show you all the cover of book 2 of the Dragon Keep Chronicles by C. M. Baschbach, Blood of the Seer!
A blood curse.
A shadow world.
An indomitable evil.
A forgotten bond.
Banished for a crime he didn’t commit, Rhys MacDuffy risked his life to rescue the little brother he no longer could claim as his own. Sean, the Seer of Clan MacDuffy, returns from his ordeal to war between the Clans and Lord Adam Barkley. Moreover, the Clan Lords refuse to lift the exile on Rhys. No outcast has ever been forgiven.
But the druids who held Sean captive have taken the key to controlling his powers—his blood. Rhys determines to keep his brother safe no matter the cost. Heedless of the war, he leads his rowdy band of Mountain Brigands on a hunt to destroy the druids before they destroy Sean with their dark magic.
The druids force Sean into a shadow world full of demons and danger, where their menacing god Deronis can consume him. Yet Rhys is able to follow Sean into the other world. There they discover an older magic that might be the key to stopping the druids.
The bond of brotherhood between Rhys and Sean runs deep. But is it strong enough to stand against the druid’s blood god?
This cover is so! pretty! When I got the email with the media kit for this cover reveal, I literally just had to stare at my phone making heart eyes at the cover for about a full 3 minutes before I could process the rest of the information in the kit. 😂
I have to admit that I’m still catching up on the Dragon Keep Chronicles. I got book 1 in paperback for Christmas last year, and I would love to fit it in before book 2 releases in February, though it remains to be seen if that will actually happen or not.
Here’s a little more info on the author herself:
C.M. Banschbach is a native Texan and would make an excellent hobbit if she wasn’t so tall. She’s an overall dork, pizza addict, and fangirl. When not writing fantasy stories packed full of adventure and snark, she works as a pediatric Physical Therapist where she happily embraces the fact that she never actually has to grow up.
She writes clean YA/MG fantasy-adventure as Claire M. Banschbach.
I’ve followed Claire for some time on Instagram, and she’s very sweet and engaging with her readers and fellow writers on there. She’s definitely one of my favorite authors to follow. If you’re interested in following her around the web, her Instagram handle is @cmbanschbach (or you can follow this link straight to her page), her Facebook is also @cmbanschbach (or you can follow this link), and she’s on Pinterest as @clairebanschbach (or you can follow this link). You can also check out her website, ClaireMBanschback.com.
