Cover Reveal for Bound by Kate Sparkes

If you had asked me any time over the past year what one of my top most anticipated books was, I would have given you the names of quite a few, but topping the list would be Kate Sparkes’ debut fantasy novel Bound. I had the honor of shredding reading an early version. It was good then, really good. The finished product is next in line on my TBR list and I know it’s going to be awesome. Kate made me care about her characters and fall face-first into her world. (Fine, I admit it. I have a book crush on one of them. Not telling who. You can work on that on your own.) You would do well to add this one to your list and snap it up as soon as you can.

Until we can , I get to share in the cover reveal. First, the blurb:

Welcome to Darmid, where magic is a sin, fairy tales are contraband, and the people live in fear of the Sorcerers on the other side of the mountains.
Rowan Greenwood has everything she’s supposed to want from life—a good family, a bright future, and a proposal from a handsome and wealthy magic hunter. She knows she should be content with what she has. If only she could banish the idea that there’s more to life than marriage and children, or let go of the fascination with magic she’s been forced to suppress since childhood.
When Rowan unknowingly saves the life of one of her people’s most feared enemies, that simple act of compassion rips her from her sheltered life and throws her into a world of magic that’s more beautiful, more seductive, and more dangerous than she ever could have imagined.
Now Rowan might get everything she ever dreamed of—that is, if the one thing she’s always wanted doesn’t kill her first.
And now, the gorgeous cover…

Isn’t that unbelievably gorgeous?

Now, meet the author of this wonderful tale:
sparkes profileKate Sparkes was born in Hamilton, Ontario, but now resides in Newfoundland, where she tries not to talk too much about the dragons she sees in the fog. She lives with a Mountie, two kids who take turns playing Jeckyll and Hyde, three cats with more personality than most people she meets, and the saddest-looking dog on the planet. Her first novel, Bound, will be released in June 2014, assuming the dragons don’t eat her, first.

    • It really is. If fantasy is your thing, make sure to give it a read.

      • No, fantasy has never been but I’ve read one a while ago which I found convincing. So many books to read and not enough time. Sigh. ❤
