The Stealthmaster’s Shadow – Cover Reveal

I’ll be honest with you.

I love all my covers for the Legends of Light series, but this is my favorite yet. I’ve been talking about The Stealthmaster’s Shadow for several months. Now it’s time to reveal the gorgeous cover made by my great friend, Kate Flournoy.







I know, I know. I’ll show you the cover in a moment. Meet Verus first.



He was a lot of fun to write, that’s all I’m saying.

Now for the cover. For real.

*fanfare of trumpets, pounding spears, and blade clashing against shields*


It’s ten confounded years since the war ended.

Ten years since the Prince won the war and pardoned the rebels.

And left.

The Prince left, but lasting peace never had a chance to begin.

As a Stealthmaster, Verus is determined to complete the task the Prince left, whatever the cost. Traitors, needlessly vague governors, and threatening rumors are all part of a standard mission. Verus will bring peace to what is left of the world, one city and village at a time. According to the governor’s daughter, the war was never about a physical peace in the first place, but what does she or any of the other Followers know? They weren’t there during the war.

They didn’t see the horrors Tauscher spread over the land or the scars that will never fade.

Commandeering the task of a former soldier, Verus presents himself to the governor of Nerva. Eventually he’ll need to undermine the man, but even Stealthmasters need money, and a mission to discover the owner of a misshapen slipper shouldn’t be difficult.

Until the ambassador from Zahavia appears.

Suddenly face to face with nightmares from the past, Verus struggles to help those plunged into danger, from the governor’s newest prisoner to a serving lad to an infuriating woman he’s taken to calling princess. Fleeing will only make the enemy stronger. But staying…

Staying could doom them all.

Coming June 1, 2018

Seriously. Go preorder it before you forget. Unless you have doubts about sarcasm, danger, and a cover that cool. Or if you don’t have money. That might make preordering it a little difficult too.

*props boots on desk and grins*

So, what do you think? Looking forward to installment four of Legends of Light?

  1. *incomprehensible screaming*

  2. Ok, this sounds so storming AWESOME. I love it. I’m also obsessed with 12DP retellings, so, yeah.

    Is this something I can read before the rest of the series? Or do I need to read everything in order? Because I am 100% YES I WANT TO READ THIS YESTERDAY for Stealthmaster’s Shadow but I haven’t exactly read the others yet, and . . . yeah.

    (Also, can you clarify the difference between Rose of the Night and Rose of Prophecy, because I know the former replaced the latter, but I’m not sure how different they are? Thanks.)

    • You can read each novella as a standalone. The background history does progress through each novella, but each one has new characters and a complete story.

      Also, Rose of the Oath and Rose of Prophecy are very different. They’re similar in that they retell Beauty and the Beast, so you get that storyline. But Rose of Prophecy followed the original very closely while Rose of the Oath is looser and ties in the history of Aslaria and other allegorical elements in much better. Rose of the Night is the prequel to Rose of the Oath – basically how the beast became the beast. *looks at titles and wonders if I should have three novellas with ‘rose’ in in* Probably not…

      • Cool beans. So even if I don’t get to the rest of the Legends of Light books before this releases, I still may pick it up.

        Ok, thanks! I realized that I mistyped in my original question; I meant to ask about Night vs. Prophecy, because I have Prophecy and Oath, and . . . yeah. I was confused.

        • Nah, you said Night vs. Prophecy and I answered with Oath and Prophecy since the one is the Rose of the Oath is the one that replace Rose of Prophecy. Rose of the Night just happened… XD

  3. The funny thing is, I actually dislike retold stories. The idea just never seems that enticing to me. Also, I don’t like e-books.

    But Verus.

    Verus has captured my heart.

    I need to read more about him, and I won’t be satisfied until I do.

  4. Wow. Wow wow wow wow im speechless completely speechless

    Everything about this book. I cannot WAIT to read it!!! I can’t wait for June 1st….. Something makes me think that Verus and his story is going to be EPIC!

  5. I’m so looking forward to reading this novella!
