The Half-blood cover is one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen! So imagine my surprise when I inquired, and the author, Jaye, told me she designed it (and all the other covers of the Ilyon Chronicle books) herself. My respect for Jaye increased tenfold. Now, before you go rushing off to hire Jaye, I sadly announce that Jaye doesn’t design commercially. Disappointed? I know how you feel. Because, this truly, is an exotic cover. So come with me and let me introduce you to the latest cover in the Ilyon Chronicles Series!
The gasps and murmuring grew. Though some were hardly more than whispers, clear words reached Jace’s ears—dangerous, monster, animal, soulless. He tried to back away from their accusing eyes, but the collar pulled hard against his throat and held him in place.
For all his years as a slave, Jace has known nothing but the hatred people hold for his mixed blood—one half human, the other half the blood of a race considered monsters. Always, he is the outsider and quickly learns it is better to keep to himself. But, when his volatile ryrik blood leads him to do the unthinkable, he is thrown into a world of violence and bloodshed.
Forced to become a gladiator, Jace finds more and more of his heart dying as his master works to break down his will not to become the monster everyone believes he is. When a stranger interferes with his master’s harsh punishment, Jace’s world is upended yet again. But with it comes the possibility of hope that has long since died. Could the man possibly hold the key to escaping the hopeless darkness that is Jace’s life? Is there such a thing as life beyond the cruelty of slavery?
See where Jace’s story all began . . .
