It was a dream come true. Solie had her own battler, a creature of almost infinite magic who could vaporize legions in the blink of an eye and would willingly suffer a thousand bloody deaths to protect her. She was his love. More simply, she was his queen.

Many others feel the same. The new-built settlement is a haven for all. Erected by sylphs of earth and fire, air and water, the Valley is Solie’s dominion. But, lovers without peer or killers without mercy, the very nature of their battler protectors means peril. It is not in any sylph’s nature to disobey, and while some are hers to command, others are the slaves of Solie’s enemies—the jealous, the cruel. Those who guard her must not fail.

I'm absolutely captivated by the regal look on the woman's face but the whole cover is screaming at me. I remeber this author came on to the blog scene with books blazing and raving reviews.

Let's hope DP will keep its promise!! *shakes fist*

  1. Okay, scrolling down I would have sworn it said Queen of Syphilis. LOL Obviously that news article I heard on the radio about syphilis making a come-back in some parts of Canada stuck in my head.

    There do seem to be an awful lot of boys in that picture so perhaps it's possible.

  2. I really have to start reading this series, as it sounds so original. I too like the cover art.

  3. @Tam - LOL, you crack me up!! Canadians going wild and without raincoats?? tut tut tut! If we do let out fantasies go at this cover then oh man, the Queen of the Sylphs can have quite the sexfest!

    @Aurian - i think it will be a series that will capture you once you're into the world and acquainted with the chars ;)
