KNIGHTS OF RILCH by Rachel O’Laughlin Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Rachel O’Laughlin quickly became a good friend after helping me tremendously with the publication process of UNBREATHABLE. And while I interviewed the lovely author back when her debut, COLDNESS OF MAREK, released, I’m thrilled to be revealing the cover for her second book, KNIGHTS OF RILCH.

Nearly a decade ago…

When Serengard rebelled and the Orion monarchy fell, former crown princess Kierstaz Orion’s love for her people became a burning desire to set things right. With a price on their heads, Kierstaz and her brother Mikel led a handful of Border Guard against the new army along the border of Dreibourge. But months of heavy bloodshed forced her small band of knights to abandon the border — and all of Serengard — to the rebels.

Nine years and a thousand betrayals later…

Kierstaz and Mikel again find themselves on the run, only this time, they’ve a boy in tow: Malcom, the son of two of the Seren rebellion’s strongest leaders. The new regime wants him dead, Mikel wants him alive, and it’s all Kierstaz can do to keep their tracks covered. Desperate to preserve the innocent life she’s sworn to protect, and afraid Mikel’s may be forfeit, Kierstaz must gamble the last thing in the world she owns — her identity. Secrets are a staple of the Orion family, and those Kierstaz keeps are as dangerous as the ones kept from her.

KNIGHTS OF RILCH is the sequel to COLDNESS OF MAREK, and the second in the SERENGARD fantasy series.

    I like the hand drawn look to it as if it was done with charcoals.

    While I am not impressed with this cover, I bet it would still be a decent story inside.
