SHADOWS OF THE HERSWEALD // Cover Reveal, Book Trailer, & Excerpts

New from author and blogger Hope Ann comes Shadows of the Hersweald, the third novella in the Legends of Light series. Today, I have the honour of sharing with you Dragons the cover for Hope's new release, and it's perhaps my favourite Legends of Light cover, yet! Without further ado, here it is...

A battered soldier from a defeated army, Haydn knows the only end to the arrival of the Prince’s governor is chains, followed by punishment and possible execution. Except he hasn’t counted on the Prince himself. Or the pardon which his recent foe has declared to acquit all those who fought against him.

A pardon Haydn detests. A pardon that refuses to punish the rebels now threatening his own village. And his sister.

Guilt-ridden from his own actions during the war, Haydn knows there are others who have no conscience at all. Others who are using the freedom of the pardon to forward their own desperate schemes.

With enemies closing in on all sides, a pardon that refuses punishment for the rebellion, and nightmares of murder and fire hovering in the back of Haydn’s every thought, can he save the only ones left he cares about before it is too late?

Goodness, doesn't this story look exciting? I read Hope's debut novella, Rose of Prophecy, early last year, and it remains one of my favourites of 2016! I have no doubt that Shadows of the Hersweald will make for a wonderful read, as well. ☺

What do you think of the cover? Have you read any of Hope Ann's books, before?
