If you're a fan of the Grimoire Saga (like I am!), you are going to love this new spin-off series. The Ourean Chronicles details events in the lives of three characters we've already met in the Grimoire Saga, and today I'm helping the author, S. M. Boyce, reveal her covers.
Stone, Cedric, and Deidre are all fascinating characters in the Grimoire Saga, and I can't wait to see them in their own stories. Get ready for some exciting new perspectives on this magical world. These books have a tentative release date of winter 2015. For now, check out the covers and add them to your Goodreads list!
Here's a little hello from Boyce, explaining the concept for the Ourean Chronicles and a sneak peek of how they'll be released:
The Misanthrope: Stone's Story
(Ourean Chronicles #1)
Before Stone trained Kara Magari or taught the First Vagabond to master the Blood loyalty, he was nothing more than a slave boy named Terric.
Terric is a curious loner hellbent on reading his master's forbidden books. When one heist goes wrong, Terric abandons his old life and runs for freedom—only to fall prey to a ruthless man named Niccoli.
Niccoli is an isen—a creature of magic from the hidden world of Ourea—and he awakens within Terric an unimaginable gift. But this gift comes with a catch. Suddenly in control of newfound power he is forbidden to freely use, Terric realizes too late he simply traded one master for another.
In Ourea, a world dominated by the gifted, few isen dare defy their masters. Until now.
The First Vagabond: Cedric's Story
(Ourean Chronicles #2)
Ourean legends of the First Vagabond have survived a thousand years, blossoming in pubs and alleys even as the great Bloods of Ourea tried to squelch his name. But the myths glorify the deeds and forget the man he was—Cedric, a boy from a small Hillsidian farming village.
As a young man, Cedric discovers a terrifying defect in his nature. He has no Blood loyalty, which means he can defy his king—something that has never happened in recorded history. But what begins as a flaw evolves into a strength. Citizens begin to listen to Cedric, and he discovers that if he leads, others will follow.
What begins as a bid for change in a world controlled by tradition becomes a mudslide as Cedric's cause falls apart at the seams. And after a betrayal that destroys his faith in the only family he's ever known, Cedric is forced to decide between those he leads and those he loves.
The Demon: Deidre's Story
(Ourean Chronicles #3)
Deidre wasn't always an isen, but she has always been hated.
In 1814, Deidre is a Southern Belle, born to wealth and a father who loathes her. Townsfolk call her beautiful and clever. A young man named Michael calls her the love of his life. But her father calls her a demon.
Deidre has lived her life with blackouts—moments of evil she can't control or remember. She hates herself enough as it is, but her life snowballs out of control when a foreigners named Niccoli comes to town. In one heartbreaking night, she loses everything—including Michael. And it's Niccoli's fault.
That night, Deidre becomes immortal. Powerful. Vengeful. But her grief festers.
As she learns the truth about her blackouts, she begins to lose the last threads of who she was. And as long as she kills Niccoli for taking Michael from her, she's okay with that.
