Cover & Description Reveal: Harbinger

Oooo, you know I've been a huge fan of this author.  And of this series!  The last book brought the series to a whole new level for me.  So much is coming together and I CAN NOT WAIT for this book to come out.

Today I have for you the cover release for the book!

I'm excited!  Eeeep!  LOOOOVING this cover!


I'm thrilled beyond believe to share with you the cover for the fourth book in Book of the Order series by Philippa Ballantine!

Book of the Order #4
By:  Philippa Ballantine
Due Out:  July 30, 2013

The Deacons of the Order are all that stand between the wicked spirits of the Otherside and the innocent citizens of the Empire.  They are sworn to protect humanity, even when they cannot protect themselves...

After the Razing of the Order, Sorcha Faris, one of the most powerful Deacons, is struggling to regain control of the runes she once wielded.  The Deacons are needed more desperately than ever.  The barrier between the world of the living and the world of the dead is weakening, and the Emperor has abandoned his throne, seeking to destroy those he feels have betrayed him.

Though she is haunted by the terrible truth of her past, Sorcha must lead the charge against the gathering hordes of geists seeking to cross into the Empire.  But to do so, she will need to manipulate powers beyond her understanding - powers that may prove to be her undoing...

Soooo!?!  All I have to say is WOW!  Sorcha looks serious and ready for battle.  Merrick is on the lookout. (great to see his full face here)  And the Rossin... Just plain huge and frightful as always.  The sky looks stormy.  I think there's going to be much to come with this one.

Oh soooo much to go down here!  The *you know what* is going to hit the fan!
