Hey, readers! Yes, I’m still alive and kicking while life is simultaneously kicking me back. And what better way is there to celebrate being alive than surrounding ourselves with pretty things? Wink, wink. 👀
With that, I’m extremely thrilled to share today’s exclusive cover reveal! In case you haven’t heard, K.S. Villoso is in the process of re-releasing her books with gorgeous new covers to boot! This includes Daughter of the Wolves, which is part of the Blackwood Marauders series but can be read as a stand-alone.
When the author first reached out to me about revealing the new cover, I could not have been more excited. Until I learned that Daughter of the Wolves is actually a direct prequel to Villoso’s highly acclaimed epic fantasy, The Wolf of Oren-yaro — which just so happens to be an all-time favorite of mine! I may or may not have spontaneously combusted, to be honest.
Thus, with unparalleled excitement and joy, I urge you to keep scrolling down to see the shiny new cover! 🥰
Clan, family, duty—the tenets of the Oren-yaro are clear: you are swords first, servants first. Yet no one expects much from the youngest daughter, not even when your family is sworn to the wolves who rule the land. At an age when most of her sisters have wed and borne children, Anira remain nursemaid to a decrepit father and an ailing mother, forgotten by a world moving too fast for her liking. When her elder brother deserts Warlord Yeshin’s army, she is forced to step up to save her family from disgrace.
Plunged into a world of bloodshed, Anira becomes the unlikely last link to a tyrant’s plans as she is tasked with bringing home the first dragon their kingdom has seen in decades. The arrival of a mercenary band, hell-bent on the same goal, creates a rivalry between her and their stubborn, unyielding leader. With her family’s freedom on the line, Anira must risk vengeful ancients, debased rituals, and even her own sanity to seize the prize.
When death comes calling, who will pay the price for her allegiance?
Listen. I really need to thank Annadel Cinco for this cover. Because wow!!! 🥺 This is not my first time seeing a loud-and-proud Filipino lead illustrated on a book cover, but this one just hits different. From the bold colors to the rich textures, I’m totally in love and I want this pretty book in my hands asap.
Also, let’s talk about the synopsis, shall we? If you’ve read The Wolf of Oren-yaro, some elements may have caught your eye — and of course, I’m here to confirm that yes, Daughter of the Wolves will finally allow readers to see the beginning of Warlord Yeshin’s diabolical plans to conquer Jin-Sayeng.
The release of Daughter of the Wolves is set for March 2022. It goes without saying, but I absolutely cannot wait to pick this up!
