I am absolutely beyond excited to bring you my second cover reveal for Lakewater Press! In the Blood by R.L. Martinez, an incredibly addictive and dark epic fantasy (first in the series) coming to you early next year, first crossed my path about a year ago, and I love it more now than I did then. It's an amazing book. And this cover is beautiful. Again, all the credit must go to E.L. Wicker aka the rock star creative genius.
Here we go...
(Look for the detail in the eye!)
I KNOW! Bootiful! Here's the blurb...
In the Blood by R.L. Martinez
The war may have ended, but a new battle begins for disgraced prisoner-of-war, Ottilde Dominax. Dreams of her witchbreed twin are visions of death and betrayal. Driven by their grim warning, she escapes her captors and races across nations to save her sister.
But she may arrive too late…
As one of the hated and feared, Lady Oriabel Dominax has kept her healing magic secret while she cares for her family's struggling estate. But the arrival of a new lord hiding secrets of his own, the discovery of a dark and addictive magic and threats from a cruel blackmailer push her closer to disaster.
Through it all, the Witch’s Tree calls…
And here's a bit about the author...
Being a stay-at-home mom is probably the hardest job Robin’s ever had (and that’s after working at places like Goodwill, MCL Cafeteria, and Captain D’s). Her house is never clean! No matter how many dishes she does or toys she picks up, her two little ones come right behind her and make a whole new mess. Anyway, this is the first time she hasn’t had some sort of job outside the home since she was fifteen. Kinda scary!
Now that her kids have both started all-day school, she can fling herself into the stories that constantly swirl inside her head. One of the main reasons she writes is to read books that she wishes other people were writing.
She lives in Oklahoma with her husband, two small sons, two naughty canines, and a mouse-killing cat.
