Shards of History cover unveiling
We’re proud to unveil the cover design for our upcoming novel, Shards of History written by Rebecca Roland. As seen yesterday on Good Choice Reading’s exclusive cover reveal, the art for this forthcoming fantasy novel features a stormy sky filled with falling feathers, and a solitary figure crossing a grassy plain.
Only she knows the truth that can save her people. For the Taakwa and Jegudun peoples, individual feathers can serve as a conduit of truth and memory, history and emotion. Thus their great importance on the Shards of History cover.
Book description: Like all Taakwa, Malia fears the fierce winged creatures known as Jeguduns who live in the cliffs surrounding her valley. When the river dries up and Malia is forced to scavenge farther from the village than normal, she discovers a Jegudun, injured and in need of help.
Malia’s existence — her status as clan mother in training, her marriage, her very life in the village — is threatened by her choice to befriend the Jegudun. But she’s the only Taakwa who knows the truth: that the threat to her people is much bigger and much more malicious than the Jeguduns who’ve lived alongside them for decades. Lurking on the edge of the valley is an Outsider army seeking to plunder and destroy the Taakwa, and it’s only a matter of time before the Outsiders find a way through the magic that protects the valley — a magic that can only be created by Taakwa and Jeguduns working together.
