I am very excited to be a part of the cover reveal for Whispers of Shadow & Flame by L. Penelope. I read the book that comes before this one (Song of Blood & Stone) in May 2018 and really enjoyed it (and you can read my full review here)! It was one of the first New Adult Fantasy books that I’ve read, and I find that I really like them. I’m also very excited to see what will happen next because I became quite attached to Jasminda and Jack (and I’ll hope they’ll be featured in Whispers of Shadow & Flame a lot). I’m also excited to read about Kyara and Darvyn and their adventures though!
Aren’t they glorious?!

“A master class in fantasy world-building.” – TIME Magazine on Song of Blood & Stone
The Mantle that separates the kingdoms of Elsira and Lagrimar is about to fall. And life will drastically change for both kingdoms.
Born with a deadly magic she cannot control, Kyara is forced to become an assassin. Known as the Poison Flame in the kingdom of Lagrimar, she is notorious and lethal, but secretly seeks freedom from both her untamed power and the blood spell that commands her. She is tasked with capturing the legendary rebel called the Shadowfox, but everything changes when she learns her target’s true identity.
Darvyn ol-Tahlyro may be the most powerful Earthsinger in generations, but guilt over those he couldn’t save tortures him daily. He isn’t sure he can trust the mysterious young woman who claims to need his help, but when he discovers Kyara can unlock the secrets of his past, he can’t stay away.
Kyara and Darvyn grapple with betrayal, old promises, and older prophecies—all while trying to stop a war. And when a new threat emerges, they must beat the odds to save both kingdoms.
