You all know I’m a massive fan of Helen Scheuerer‘s Oremere Chronicles, so when I heard rumblings that there was something new in the works, I was VERY excited.
That something turned out to be fantasy series Curse of the Cyren Queen, and Helen recently revealed the stunning cover for book one, A Lair of Bones!
Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous?
Here’s the synopsis:
A deadly contest. A vaulting ambition. How far will one cyren go to win?
Mighty cyrens have ruled the ancient lair of Saddoriel for centuries. A cavernous fortress, a subterranean labyrinth of tunnels and levels, powered by magic and music.
From the moment she was born, Roh, the daughter of an infamous criminal, has been despised by her own kind.
Restricted to the Lower Sector and forced to work as a common bone cleaner, she has always believed she belongs above: where lies adventure… and power.
Opportunity arises in the form of the Queen’s Tournament, a treacherous set of trials that could see the victor crowned ruler of the entire lair. Up against the most cunning, dangerous cyrens in all the realms, does Roh stand a chance?
With a few (free!) novellas already teasing what’s to come, I can’t wait for A Lair of Bones to be released on July 15th! I’ll be reviewing this one for The AU Review, so keep an eye out in the coming weeks!
