I am excited to share with you all the official cover for the new YA Fantasy CROOKED RAVEN! The first book in the Otherworld Trilogy by debut author Talis Jones comes out June 26, 2018! I’ve been lucky enough to read an eARC and as a total fantasy lover I gotta say I’m very excited to see where this story goes next. It’s a bit Peter Pan meets Game of Thrones in Narnia, which obviously had me sold right from the start ⚔️ Be sure to join the Facebook group Talismonium to receive exclusive teasers and excerpts leading up to the release!

“Sometimes you must let go of who you were to
embrace what you could become.”
“And if that damns me to Hell?” she asked.
He smiled. “Then we shall meet again.”
There is an island that protects the young not because they are lost, but because they were taken. The Island of Oneiroi is not a mere destination for children and dreamers – it’s a sanctuary for the murdered and vengeance has come.
Adrianna Verdandi holds the cooling corpse of her foster brother, Geoffrey Martinez, when a curious stranger turns up with an invitation of passage to an impossible realm. Little did she know that accepting a second chance would bind their fates to the very darkness they flee from.
Time is of the essence, the rebels are rising up, ancient forces stir in the northern woods, and through it all a strange sailor named Titus watches bemused, shrewd, and knowing far more than he is willing to divulge about this ruthless game for power.
The darkness isn’t coming. It’s already there, walking in your shadow.
