Cover Reveal: Betrayal of the Covenant
I am happy to share with our readers the cover for the upcoming Betrayal of the Covenant, the second book in the Dragon-Called series. Join twins, Willoe and Rowyn on an epic tale of coming of age, the passion of love and sacrifice, and the eternal struggle between light and darkness, and an adventure that encompasses the known world of Saoghal. Meet Elfs, the little Tinks, the ferocious Kata-henis ridden by the Elfs, and more Fantasy creatures – including DRAGONS!
Tracked by minions of the evil Shin-il priest, the Dragon-Called Twins, Rowyn and Willoe, journey on a quest to the Hoarfrost Mountains. Lands rife with dangers, including Sköll Wolves and Ice Giants, and may hide more than just the sought-after Sword and Staff. Devices created by dragons that are rumored to control the Others and the Fire Within, while preventing one of the twins from dying to satisfy the Covenant.
The key to opposing the Shin-il priests and taking back Taran lies in an all-out assault on Tierran’s Wall – built to be impregnable. Sellswords, Blood Stalkers and Shades, creatures as much dead as alive, will do anything to prevent the twins from succeeding. Unexpected allies may provide the help they need to overcome these obstacles, but an unimaginable betrayal may end the Covenant and destroy the twins’ ability to defeat the Great Evil, the Olcas Mogwai.
Legend says a Covenant between an ancient race of dragons and a Halfling King vanquished a relentless evil. More than a thousand years later, the evil has returned, better prepared and hungering for vengeance. When the legacy falls to the twins Willoe and Rowyn, sixteen-year-old descendants of the mythical king, they struggle with the truth they discover behind the Covenant’s deadly cost.
With the aid of their cousins Aeron and Casandra, the twins must learn to wield the power of the Dragon’s Fire that flows through their veins to defeat the minions of the great evil, even though success may require the greatest of sacrifices.
In a story with a host of characters and multiple story lines, Fire of the Covenant begins an epic adventure of self-discovery, the passion of love and sacrifice, and the eternal struggle between light and darkness.
As intricately woven as Martin’s “Game of Thrones” and mystically enchanting as Rowling’s “Harry Potter”, Peter Cruikshank’s first novel is an amazing read. His style is so clear and the characters so real that I felt I was reading in living color. It is an encompassing tale of magic, of majesty, and of dragons and adventure that has a magnetic grip on the reader. It left me anxiously awaiting the sequel, a feeling I haven’t experienced since Jean Auel’s “Clan of the Cave Bear.” – Amazon Review
