Cover reveal: Ward Against Darkness by Melanie Card

I absolutely loved Ward Against Death (Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer #1) – you can read my review here - and I’m so excited to be part of the big cover reveal for the sequel!

********
Today Melanie Card and Entangled Teen are revealing the cover for book 2 in The Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer Series, WARD AGAINST DARKNESS. Also enter below for a paperback of the book or an eBook!

On to the reveal!



Blurb:
The last thing Ward de'Ath wants is more trouble. On the run from both the law and the criminal underworld, Ward and Celia flee Brawenal City only to stumble into the mansion of a powerful evil necromancer. And when Ward discovers the man possesses a dangerous grimoire, his duty leaves him no choice. He can't allow the necromancer to keep the grimoire. But the mansion is filled with monsters--human and undead--and Ward has no way of telling who's friend or foe. The only person he can trust is Celia who dominates more of his thoughts and feelings everyday. But there are still laws in the way of anything but friendship. She's still dead and he's still alive . . . for now.

About Melanie:
Melanie has always been drawn to story telling. In fact, she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t telling a story in her head or on paper. In grade school, they had journal writing time which she turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that she loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that she nurtured this love and started her journey as a writer.
She writes fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join her on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.

    1. The heroes name is Ward so it takes on even more meaning if you read the series.

  5. I am surprised I haven't seen any publicity on this one. This is the first thing I have seen on it. I, too, enjoyed the first one. It was New Adult before that term picked up steam.

    1. I remember when I first reviewed book #1 I called it YA but then someone asked me if it was adult and I wasn't sure.

      They weren't using the term NA at the time (as you mentioned). So I emailed Melanie and asked. I guess it was labeled YA but the characters were older so it was in limbo land back then.

      It's a really good series so I hope it finds an audience now.
