Hey everyone! I have a very special guest here today! Ryan Dalton, author of The Year of Lightning, asked me to help him reveal the cover of the sequel, The Black Tempest, and of course I said yes! I had the pleasure of interviewing Ryan on my blog when The Year of Lightning was first released, so definitely check out that post if you want to get to know him. But first, let me hand things over to Ryan and get into this cover reveal!
A Message From Ryan:
Hey, book fans! It seems like just yesterday that I was sharing the cover and synopsis for my debut novel The Year of Lightning. Now here we are, and I’m so excited to share a first glimpse of the sequel, The Black Tempest.
Below, you’ll find the first reveal of the brand new cover, the book synopsis that will appear on the back cover, along with a super cool giveaway contest at the bottom.The Black Tempest by Ryan Dalton
Published by Jolly Fish Press on January 10th 2017
It’s summer in Emmett’s Bluff, and the ice is spreading. Six months after confronting an enemy from the future, Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert have returned to their normal teenage lives. Or, they’ve tried to. During the battle to save their town, a mysterious force awoke inside the twins. Time calls to them, and it’s growing too strong to be ignored.
When warriors from a mysterious ancient kingdom appear, they bring warnings of an unstoppable foe—one whose control of the ice is powered by Time itself. But ice is far more than the Black Tempest’s signature. As the twins uncover the truth behind it, they realize their town is only the beginning. If the Black Tempest is not stopped here, his corruption will threaten the very course of history.
As cold advances and doom draws near, the twins’ only hope lies in learning to wield Time itself, and in trusting their strange new friends—even if those friends have secrets of their own.
