Heirs of War Cover Reveal

I know I said this was supposed to happen on Saturday, but that’s only because I can’t keep my days straight.  Yeah, duh. I could blame it on the fact that I was also deep into reading Heirs of War and couldn’t be disturbed. I finished this morning. Damn. Why damn? Didn’t you read what I just wrote? I finished it! But. . .  but . . .*sigh*

In celebration of that fact and to whet your appetite to go out and grab your very own copy, I’m here to tease you. First, I give you the blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Zelene doesn’t believe in magic or prophecies. When she’s told she is part of the prophecy foretelling five powerful girls bringing peace to the war-torn worlds, she scoffs. The idea of other dimensions layered on top of the world she lives in is almost as ludicrous as the idea that she might be able to save them. After she is attacked by magic-wielding assassins, she finds she can’t argue with reality.

As their enemies strike, the girls are taken back to their world and discover the ties binding them together. Rhaya has always had an uncanny knack for reading people, but can’t seem to unravel the mystery tying her to Isauria, the new friend she bonded with instantly. For years, Isauria has been dreaming of Terrena, a girl living her life on the run in a magical world ripped apart by the tragedies of war, completely unaware that she is psychically linked to the world she was born in.

Zelene views them all with a distrustful eye, familial bonds or no, and can think of a place or two she’d like to shove the crown she supposedly inherited. When she learns that her long-lost twin Ariana has been captured by the rebels, Zelene’s attitude changes. She doesn’t know how she is supposed to go against an army of magic-wielding rebels when her own ability to manipulate the elements is still locked within her. But can she trust the elders to rescue Ariana when it seems their medieval politics are what brought about the war in the first place? With all that is at stake, the answer becomes clear to Zelene.

Screw the worlds. She’s getting her sister back.

Now, meet the author from whose brain has sprung a tale set in an intriguing world, and interwoven with unforgettable characters (yeah, I’m crushing on a few and, no, I don’t care about our age differences — don’t judge).

Mara Valderran ~ author of Heirs of War

Author Bio: Mara Valderran has been coming up with stories pretty almost since she could talk, often commandeering her brother’s G.I. Joes to play out her fictional tales alongside her Barbies. Once she hit adolescence and realized playing with dolls wasn’t cool anymore, she started putting her ideas to paper. And she hasn’t stopped since.

Mara is more than just a madwoman with a writing box. She lives in the south with her husband and demanding cat. She hopes to one day meet Daniel Jackson from SG1, or at least the actor who played him. When she’s not writing, you can find her reading, playing video games, or spending time at her favorite local coffee shop.

You can connect with Mara via these links:

And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for . . . *cue fanfare, trumpets, confetti, flying monkeys*
