Cover Reveal: Return of the Dragons by R. S. Williams

I’ve got something really exciting (and pretty) to show you today. It’s the absolutely breathtaking cover for the upcoming sequel to Kingdom of Lies by R. S. Williams, Return of the Dragons!

Return of the Dragons is the second book in The Kane Saga, a gripping epic fantasy series with magic, assassins, royalty, romance, political intrigue, the chosen one, and did I mention DRAGONS?!

If you haven’t read book one, Kingdom of Lies, go here to check it out and avoid any possible spoilers.

Ready for book two’s blurb? Here we go:

Blurb

Having grown up in Rheanydd, all Elijah wanted to focus on was entering the annual Hollom horse race. A year later, he’s one of Princess Sienna’s Elite bodyguards in Adelith, where he learns more about his hazy past every day.

King Roderick’s solution to Eli being revealed as the missing crown heir is to marry Eli to Princess Sienna and combine their two bloodlines. But when a body is found with a blood-splattered message and the queen reveals a secret about Eli’s magic, a wedding is the last thing on everyone’s mind.

Eli starts to doubt the Dragon Elders’ motives when their answers only come in the form of cryptic messages. Yet he can’t help but feel a connection between the dragons and himself. So, he agrees to fulfil their task to get the relics before The Master’s Agents of Cyran.

But the agreement between the dragons and his father is due to end soon, setting the dragons free from their human forms and able to rebuild their race. Unless The Master gains control of them.

Can Eli and the dragons work together to stop The Master from getting the relics, or will he gain control over the dragons to rebuild the world and become a god?

Cover Reveal: A Fair Deception & A Fair Vendetta

I’m absolutely in love with the new covers I’ve commissioned for my Fair Tales novellas! If you’ve seen the original cover for A Fair Deception, that was always supposed to be for the complete collection, I just used it as a placeholder when I decided to publish the first story separately. Now my second novella is almost ready to be published and I realised I would need some new individual covers for the two novellas.

I wanted the individual covers to tie in with the main Fair Tales cover, and to be honest, the designer has knocked it out of the park, creating two new covers that use purple and navy shades to keep the series in the same colour palette whilst making sure they’re all eye-catching in their own right.

Ready to see the new covers? Okay, here is the original, series cover for Fair Tales:

Fair Tales short stories from the Fair Realm

I still love this cover, and it will be the cover for the collection paperback and ebook (if I’m able to reuse it, Amazon might not like that, and I might decide to make the full collection a paperback exclusive).

And here is the fresh recover for A Fair Deception:

How gorgeous is Daya, the sharp-tongued huntress and future Gnome Queen? (It’s not a spoiler if you’ve read The Fair Queen, or know that it’s a loose Cinderella adaptation… otherwise, sorry?).

Click on the cover to check out the blurb and grab the ebook on Amazon. OR, you could read it for free when you sign up to my email newsletter. And the best part about joining my email list is that you’ll be the first to know when A Fair Vendetta is available, and you’ll also get that one for free! And the following three Fair Tales stories, which I’m hoping to publish in 2023.

Ready to see the cover for my upcoming novella, A Fair Vendetta?

I am so excited to share this story with you once it’s ready for public consumption. It follows Mena, a Sylph (air-magic) who was orphaned years earlier at the hands of Celeste soldiers (aether-magic), and is now on a mission for vengeance against the man who stole everything from her.

It’s a sweet, clean sapphic romance about two girls from opposite sides of the tracks, and I’m really enjoying writing it! Plus, how incredible does Mena look on that cover? If you’re a fan of the Throne of Glass series, particularly The Assassin’s Blade, then I’m sure you’ll love A Fair Vendetta.

I’m planning to have this novella out by August, so join my email list now and you can be reading A Fair Deception while you wait!

I know, I know. I’m too good to you.

Happy reading, friends!

The Solitary King, The Fair Chronicles #2 cover reveal!

The day is finally here, I’m so excited to share the cover of book two in The Fair Chronicles with you.

Introducing the cover of The Solitary King!

Blurb

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

When Aria returns to the Fair Realm to attend a ball at the Salamander castle, it isn’t long before things take a turn for the deadly.

With her father’s home in ashes and her newfound family reduced to dust, Aria finds herself King Auberon’s captive once more. Deep within the mountains that border the Celeste Kingdom, Aria is powerless to fight back, her newly-discovered abilities suppressed by the weight of the rock that surrounds her. But when a Celeste guard whispers about rebellion and promises to help her escape, Aria is desperate to trust him.

Crown Prince Xander returns home to the Gnome castle, laden with grief for his brother and father, and dreading the day he will be crowned king. Preparations are underway for his marriage and coronation, but thoughts of the girl he betrayed trouble him day and night. Until the morning of his wedding, when a note arrives that Aria has been taken by Auberon once more, and Xander is forced to choose between his life of duty and obedience, and what he believes is right.

Return to the Fair Realm and lose yourself in book two of The Fair Chronicles. Perfect for fans of Holly Black’s Folk of the Air series.


The Solitary King follows both Aria and Xander as they try to come to terms with the events of The Fair Queen, whilst also facing new threats and growing tension between the Five Kingdoms. Can Aria ever forgive Xander for his betrayal, and will he be able to protect her from the forces that wish to prevent the prophecy of the legendary Fair Queen coming true?

Preorder it now for just 99c/77p and find out on 31 January 2022!

Paperback and hardcover versions will be available from release day, and an audio book will be coming later in 2022!
