I’m very excited to reveal the cover of my forthcoming young adult fantasy, A Talent for Death! Shalis Stevens did an incredible job drawing a cover to match the description of a Tarot card that figures into the story – the Knight of Swords, to be exact. A Talent for Death debuts in paperback and Kindle formats on June 7, and you can add it to your Goodreads list here.
Maggie Connolly has yet to develop her magical Talent. A late bloomer, her parents tell her. As the teasing she endures from her classmates worsens, Maggie realizes she can repel the magic of the half-demon Kody, who insists that her ability proves she has either angelic or demonic heritage.
Desperate for answers, Maggie forms an unlikely alliance with Kody, who once mocked her as much as everyone else. With his help, Maggie begins to manifest a power she cannot control.
Soon, Maggie is the focal point of a long-prophesied war between the angels and the demons, and she will have to choose her side.
