Cover Reveal: A Stone-Kissed Sea

Two posts in one week? What is it, the coming apocalypse???

Nope. Just the cover reveal for A Stone-Kissed Sea. (Which comes out on December 6th and is now available to preorder everywhere.)

The cover for A Stone-Kissed Sea was created by and—I know I have said this before—but I really think it’s some of their best work. The models are perfect. The colors are stunning. And it really captures the unique qualities of this book while still fitting into the overall scheme of the Elemental World series.

Much of this book deals with the collision of elements. Earth and sea. Past and present. History and future. I think this cover captures all those elements in a visually arresting way. Also, on a purely superficial level, Lucien and Makeda may be the prettiest people I have ever put on the cover of one of my books.

Seriously. Look at them. They’re practically glowing.

So what is it about?

An immortal wanderer. A brilliant scientist. A centuries-old menace written in blood.


Lucien Thrax, son of the earth and child of the ancients, is a healer of immense power. But years of work on a deadly vampire virus have not led to a cure, nor have they softened the wall he built around his heart. When he’s forced to work with Doctor Makeda Abel, Lucien is convinced he’s reached his limit of patience with humanity.

Makeda Abel may be human, but she’s far from impressed with the brooding vampire healer, even if his mind draws her reluctant admiration. She’s learned how to survive in the immortal world, and it’s not by being timid. Working together may lead them to answers, but it also pushes Lucien and Makeda’s reluctant attraction to the boiling point.

When nightmares become reality, Makeda will have to trust Lucien with her life. Finding answers has never been more vital. Finding love has never been more deadly. To heal the Elemental World, Lucien and Makeda must follow ancient paths and ask for help from the most inhuman of immortals. Because even with a cure in hand, the battle has only begun.

A Stone-Kissed Sea is the fourth novel in the Elemental World series.

Go forth! Preorder it in e-book edition today. I’ll be setting up the paperback pre-order later today, so I’ll include those links when I have them. Audio is still an unknown at this point. You can add it on Goodreads. Follow it on Pinterest. Or don’t buy it at all because you don’t like the series.

Have fun. You do you.

And meanwhile, I’ll be gazing at the world’s most beautiful cover. Not that I’m biased or anything…

  1. Have to admit, I had imagined Lucien as somewhat older, and more weather-beaten. But this version is most attractive! It will make for a much better mental picture when I’m reading. 🙂
    One-clicked and waiting.
