5 years ago
We may have mentioned once or twice just how proud we are of our covers and quite frankly we have good reason to be. So for your Thursday afternoon treat we thought we give you a whole wave of great book art with 3 unseen covers on upcoming titles...
First up we have The Iron Ship by new author K.M Kinley
art by Alejandro Colucci
Merchant, industrialist and explorer Trassan Kressind has an audacious plan – combining the might of magic and iron in the heart of a great ship to navigate an uncrossed ocean, seeking the city of the extinct Morfaan to uncover the secrets of their lost sciences.
Ambition runs strongly in the Kressind family, and for each of Trassan's siblings fate beckons. Soldier Rel is banished to a vital frontier, bureaucrat Garten balances responsibility with family loyalty, sister Katriona is determined to carve herself a place in a world of men, outcast Guis struggles to contain the energies of his soul, while priest Aarin dabbles in forbidden sorcery.
The world is in turmoil as new money brings new power, and the old social order crumbles. And as mankind's arts grow stronger, a terror from the ancient past awakens...
This highly original fantasy depicts a unique world, where tired gods walk industrial streets and the tide's rise and fall is extreme enough to swamp continents. Magic collides with science to create a rich backdrop for intrigue and adventure in the opening book of this epic saga.
Out June 2015

And still the Night Clock ticks...
Phil Trevena’s patients are dying and he needs answers. One of the disturbed
men in his care tells him that he needs to fi nd Daniel, that Daniel will be able
to explain what is happening. But who is Daniel? Daniel was lost once, broken
by the same force that has turned its hatred on Trevena. His destiny is greater
than he could ever imagine.
Drawn together, Trevena and Daniel embark on an extraordinary journey of
discovery, encountering The Firmament Surgeons in the Dark Time—the fl ux
above our reality. Whoever controls Dark Time controls the minds of humanity.
The Firmament Surgeons, aware of the approach of limitless hostility and
darkness, are gathered to bring an end to the war with the Autoscopes, before
they tear our reality apart.
