HEY, LOOK AT THAT.
It’s the brand new cover to The Harvest, the third (and final) Heartland novel.
I again have won the cover lottery thanks to my publisher, and the artist, Shane Rebenschied.
The book comes out July 14th.
It pulls no punches and… *whistles*
Well, you’ll see.
Here’s the official description (which, admittedly, is a hair spoilery).
Blood will water the corn…
It’s been a year since the Saranyu flotilla fell from the sky, and life in the Heartland has changed. Gone are the Obligations and the Harvest Home festivals. In their place is a spate of dead towns, the former inhabitants forced into mechanical bodies to serve the Empyrean — and crush the Heartland.
When Cael awakens from a Blightborn sleep, miles away from the world he remembers, he sets out across the Heartland to gather his friends for one last mission. As the mechanicals, a war flotilla, and a pack of feral Empyrean girls begin to close in on the Heartland, there isn’t much time to make their next move. But if they can uncover a secret weapon in time, Cael and his friends might just find themselves with the power to save the world — or destroy it — resting in their hands.
You can read the first book, Under the Empyrean Sky.
Or the second in the series: Blightborn.
Or you can read the short that prequelizes the series: The Wind Has Teeth Tonight.
(And given the Star Wars news yesterday, a lot of folks who aren’t presently readers of mine are wondering if I’ve written anything close to that, and I’d say: check out the Heartland series. DO IT. DO IT NOW. *throws a wampa at you*)
