Today is a very exciting day! I am taking part in a cover reveal for Hall Of Night – the next book in a fantastic series by Emma Miles. Hall Of Night is a long anticipated read for me, the follow on from Hall Of Pillars, which I adored!
For anyone not familiar with the series, here’s a wee reminder of Hall Of Pillars!
Their only hope for survival is a heart poisoned by vengeance.
For years humans have fought to survive in the Valley; enfolded by impassable mountains and protected by the Vallier and his loyal Spellwards. But the magical Ward which holds back the fey is failing and fear stalks through the great city of Ayresport.
Like many, shy Mya has learned to survive on the edges of the wilds outside the protection of the Ward. As the time of her orphaned nephew’s coming of age draws close, Mya is filled with both pride and fear. There is every possibility Jack has the Gift of Magic like his mother, and Mya knows the Gift means death.
A chance meeting leads Mya to an unbreakable friendship that will sustain her soul through the hardest of times, but will courage be enough to keep her and Jack alive?
When a traitor comes looking for Jack, there is only one choice. Flee, or die.
And now to check out what’s going to be happening in Hall Of Night!
It will take more than friendship, courage or love, to save them this time.
Feather and Mya had fought hard for their peaceful life, defeating a Dark Fey queen so the people of their valley could be free; so, they could put their feet up in their quiet cottage at the end of a day’s work…
Of course, things won’t stay that way long for Mya and her faithful brownie friend. When visiting the Beltane fair in the wondrous tree city of Ashgrove, they hear rumours of horns, rumours of hoofbeats, rumours of slaughter. The Gentry are coming.Once again Mya and Feather must team up with the Wild Fey and the surly knight, Caelin, to defend the home they love; whilst her nephew, Jack, struggles to bring unity and order to the human city of Ayresport who refuse to accept the fey.
Only if they unite, will they survive.
Are you ready to see the cover? Of course you are!
Isn’t it gorgeous?! It matches so well in with both the vibe of the story, and with the cover of book one!
About The Author
I often get asked when I knew I was a writer; the answer is always. A writer is what I am, it’s in my soul. There have been times in my life when I couldn’t write, and times when my writing has been the only thing that kept me going. I think I always longed for something deeper from life, something more meaningful, and I found it in my imagination and in the music of words.
It was poetry which first caught my attention, and whilst my younger cousins called for ghost stories it was animals I first wrote of. I think I gravitated toward fantasy because of the freedom it gives, I could create my own worlds and decide my own rules. My Wind’s Children trilogy was born from an image that came to me whilst daydreaming, of a young man sitting alone below a bridge. I didn’t know who he was; it turns out neither did he, but we found out together.
I’m now working on my seventh book and love writing more than ever, it’s an addiction, an obsession, but one I now share with my wonderful writing family. My beta readers, my editor, and you, my readers, having you with me on my journey means the world to me.
I write as much as I can around work, but I also try to squeeze in a ridiculous amount of hobbies! I’m a wildlife photographer and do a little archery. I paint, sculpt with clay, withies and driftwood, preferring to be outdoors if I can. I still have a love for the theatre, having started out in life studying backstage crafts, and a great love for language. I speak a little French, Romanian and Italian, ma non molto bene!
