M.J. Fifield's Effigy Cover Reveal / Last Day of the Reborn Blog Tour and Giveaway

M.J. Fifield's debut novel Effigy is coming out next month, and I'm participating in her cover reveal. Isn't it a gorgeous cover?

The survival of a once-mighty kingdom rests in the hands of its young queen, Haleine Coileáin, as it slowly succumbs to an ancient evil fueled by her husband’s cruelty.

A sadistic man with a talent for torture and a taste for murder, he is determined to burn the land and all souls within. Haleine is determined to save her kingdom and, after a chance encounter, joins forces with the leader of the people’s rebellion. She gives him her support, soon followed by her heart.

Loving him is inadvertent but becomes as natural and necessary as breathing. She lies and steals on his behalf, doing anything she can to further their cause. She compromises beliefs held all her life, for what life will exist if evil prevails?

Her journey leads to a deceiving world of magic, monsters, and gods she never believed existed outside of myth. The deeper she goes, the more her soul is stripped away, but she continues on, desperate to see her quest complete. If she can bring her husband to ruin and save her people, any sacrifice is worth the price—even if it means her life.

Release date: July 22, 2014

Armed with a deep and lasting love of chocolate, purple pens, and medieval weaponry, M.J. Fifield is nothing if not a uniquely supplied insomniac. When she isn’t writing, she’s on the hunt for oversized baked goods or shiny new daggers. M.J. lives with a variety of furry creatures—mostly pets—in New Hampshire. Effigy is her first novel.

For more information about M.J., please visit her website and blog.

Wow! It's hard to believe a month ago Reborn officially debuted and the blog tour started. Here is where I'm at today:

Christine Rains' blog for an exclusive interview with the god Apenth
Stephen Tremp's blog talking about magical theory in the Kingdom of Amora

Today's Reborn tidbit: The Prophecy of Sólfœra comes from the Norvadians (Great Beyonders) and was one of the last world-building aspects I added to Reborn during the final edit and has taken a life of its own. More about the prophecy will be addressed in Remarked, Book 1.5 of The Fate Challenges, and will feature prominently in the prequel novel of The Gods Challenges, a sequel trilogy of The Fate Challenges, I hope to publish in 2017.

The authors of Untethered Realms and I are giving away over $50 worth of books to one lucky winner. The giveaway is open internationally. a Rafflecopter giveaway
