Today I'm excited to help reveal the cover of Orenda, Ruth Silver's new fantasy coming Spring 2014 from Patchwork Press! Check out the synopsis:
“A sword wielding girl, an eternal suit and an alternate universe.
Lil has a gift, one she never thought possible as she finds herself awake after a strange dream with the tell-tale sign that what she dreamt was in fact real. The dreamscape, was more than just a premonition it happened. She’d been momentarily tossed into another dimension. Where most would consider her crazy, not her best friend Bray.
In another reality, one similar and yet slightly different Willow has been kidnapped by the sorceress turned demon, Eilith. Rawlie, Willow’s friend and companion crosses to our universe for help and brings Lil into his world. Filled with frightening creatures and magical elements, Lil demands to go home, until she discovers Bray has been taken by Eilith as well. Unable to watch her best friend die, she joins forces with Rawlie, Jamie and the others to hunt down Eilith and rescue those they care about.”
I love how whimsical this cover is! It's such a beautiful cover. The colors, the models dress and pose. It all just catches my eye and makes me want to know who this girl is and what she's doing!
