Rhett Walker comes face-to-face with his destiny as the Shadow in TREASON OF HAWKS, the much-anticipated conclusion to Lila Bowen’s award-winning fantasy series. Winging its way to shelves this October, check out a preview of the stunning cover designed by Lisa Marie Pompilio.

 

Rhett Walker is looking for peace, the memories of all he’s lost haunting his dreams. And now the Shadow tugs him West, back to where his journey began.  

With the lawless Rangers on his heels and monster attacks surging, Rhett is surrounded on all sides. This time it’s not all about horses and land. This time, it feels personal. Because the newest monster on the horizon just may be wearing the face of someone from Rhett’s past.

To save the Durango territory, Rhett must accept the Shadow’s call and fulfill his destiny.

Cover Launch: MALICE OF CROWS by Lila Bowen

We know you’ve been waiting for Lila Bowen’s MALICE OF CROWS ever since CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS (US | UK | AUS) left you on the edge of your seats. Get ready for another death-defying mission armed with nothing more than two wings and a gun.

Malice of Crows

Rhett has just shut down a terrible enterprise running on the blood of magical folk, but failed to catch the dark alchemist behind it. Now, he must make the ultimate transformation if he has any hope of stopping the alchemist or fulfilling his destiny; he must become the leader of a new Rangers outpost—the Vagabond Monster Posse.

 To save his friends, and the lives of countless others, he’ll first have to lead them on a mission more dangerous than anything they’ve ever faced.

Readers and reviewers alike have fallen for Lila Bowen’s Shadow series. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up WAKE OF VULTURES (US | UK | AUS), you can dive into this sample chapter now.

WAKE OF VULTURES – A Major New Acquisition!

lila bowen - cr von tuck.JPGWe are over the moon to announce a new novel called WAKE OF VULTURES. At its surface, it is a novel of a young girl who is awakened to the supernatural in the world around her and must start hunting monsters. But this novel is much more than that — and in a league of its own. WAKE OF VULTURES challenges conceptions of race, gender and humanity, yet remains completely engrossing and fast-paced. You will fall instantly in love with Nettie and will get lost in her world. WAKE OF VULTURES is a thought- and discussion-provoking novel — and one I hope you enjoy! We’ll be publishing in the UK and the US this October.

In case you wanted to know a bit more about the novel:

A rich, dark fantasy of destiny, death, and the supernatural world hiding beneath the surface.

Nettie Lonesome lives in a land of hard people and hard ground dusted with sand. She’s a half-breed who dresses like a boy, raised by folks who don’t call her a slave but use her like one. She knows of nothing else. That is, until the day a stranger attacks her. When nothing, not even a sickle to the eye can stop him, Nettie stabs him through the heart with a chunk of wood, and he turns into black sand. And just like that, Nettie can see. But her newfound sight is a blessing and a curse. Even if she doesn’t understand what’s under her own skin, she can sense what everyone else is hiding—at least physically. The world is full of evil, and now she knows the source of all the sand in the desert. Haunted by the spirits, Nettie has no choice but to set out on a quest that might lead her to her true kin… if the monsters along the way don’t kill her first.

So I’ll let you in on a secret — the author is Lila Bowen, but you might be more familiar with her real name, Delilah Dawson. And I think she’s at the top of her game with this one.

But want more? Don’t trust the editor (I know! I wouldn’t either!) How about these guys? Some early reviews are in for this awesome new hardcover:
