The fabulous folks at Crimson Tree Publishing have done it again! Marya Heidel has designed an awesome cover for my forthcoming book, Library of Absolution and it’s time for a cover reveal!
While the book isn’t yet available for pre-order on the major book sites, you can add it to your GoodReads TBR list, if you’re so inclined. The street date is 12/17/18! I’ll let you know when pre-orders are available.
(If you’re wondering, Crimson Tree is the sister publisher to Clean Teen Publishing, which published my Threads of the Moirae series. Crimson Tree publishes adult/new adult fiction, instead of YA.)
Whats the new book about?
Alarick Brandon is the powerful wizard who operates The Keep, a refuge for magical people fleeing the persecution of the Ministry. A bitter realist, Alarick knows it’s only a matter of time until the Ministry succeeds in eradicating magic from the world—and exterminating all magical beings—so he has been careful to avoid any personal involvement with the people who pass through his sanctuary.
But when Elissa Stone arrives at The Keep, her village a smoldering ruin, and only her magical talent and a forbidden library left to her name, Alarick’s ordered world descends into chaos. Elissa is a Book Mesmer, a magical talent long believed extinct. She can enchant books, making them indestructible, unreadable…even deadly to unauthorized readers. But while her magic can secure a legacy for future magical generations, it’s not a skill that’s good in a fight, and certainly not one that Alarick sees any real use for. But there’s something compelling about a woman who defies the Ministry’s edicts against female literacy, and she seems determined to prove that knowledge is a weapon in its own right…
The first installment in an enticing new fantasy series by author Jennifer Derrick, The Library of Absolution is a compelling story of perseverance and determination in the face of persecution, in a Dark Age where hope is lost—and knowledge is the only thing left to fight for.
