Here’s a look at Revell’s latest 2015 lineup!
So, Lisa’s is looking good, continuing on her themed Southern Crimes covers, love the pink streak in the cover model’s hair for Cathleen’s, and the colour pop of Kellie’s is eye-catching.
I’m in two minds over Janice’s! I love the look but maybe the placement of the series title in the top left is distracting me a little. Maggie’s is more of the same for an historical and I’m not a big fan of the lace edge, I like that there is a guy on the cover of Dan’s but I’ve never been a fan of that series’ covers. Irene’s is eye-catching but that green is all ‘weird science experiment’ inducing! Thomas Locke (pretty sure that’s Davis Bunn in disguise!) has the right look for his story, as does Jill’s, but I’m not sure of the model. I’ll post Beth’s as soon as it is available.
Cover art is all about personal preferences and my comments reflect my likes and dislikes and are no reflection on my view of this fabulous publisher or the wonderful authors and books they represent!
Anyway, the stories look fabulous, as always, and I’m looking forward to their release.
Over to you, dear friends!

Emissary (Legends of the Realm) by Thomas Locke
Hyam is a likeable lad who will make a fine farmer someday. But he carries a burden few can fathom. As his mother slips toward death, she implores him to return to Long Hall, where he spent five years as an apprentice. It was there that Hyam’s extraordinary capacity for mastering languages came to light–and soon cast him into the shadows of suspicion. How could any human learn the forbidden tongues with such ease? When Hyam dares to seek out the Mistress of the Sorceries, her revelation tears his world asunder.
He has no choice but to set out on the foreboding path–which beckons him to either his destiny or his doom. An encounter with an enchanting stranger reminds him that he is part hero and part captive. As Hyam struggles to interpret the omens and symbols, he is swept up by a great current of possibilities–and dangers.
With lyrical prose that unveils a richly imaginative world, Thomas Locke takes readers on a journey into the Realm. There he invites them to awaken their sense of wonder. This cracking adventure moves like a contemporary thriller but harkens back to the enduring genre of classic fantasy.
