Betrayed by Ednah Walters
The Guardian Legacy
Coming June 2012 from Spencer Hill Press
About the Book
Lil isn’t just an average teenager. She’s one of the Nephilim–the descendants of humans and angels–which gives her some serious psi skills and a mission for redemption.
Just when Lil thinks she’s found a balance between her normal life with human friends and her training to become a Guardian, she’s warned that someone close to her will betray her. When the boy she loves starts acting strangely and one of her human friends acquires a supernatural ability, Lil begins to realize that someone is manipulating the people she loves… and won’t stop until she’s been lured to the dark side.
Betrayed will be released in June 2012, and the sequel, Hunted, is scheduled for release in late 2012.
Oh…Wow. Yum… Let me just look at it for just a little longer while I gather my thoughts.
I love this cover for Betrayed, a Guardian Legacy novel by Ednah Walters. When I was given the chance to do a cover reveal by the publisher, Spencer Hill Press, I jumped at the chance. The cover is dramatic. It’s very appealing. And I think eye-catching is the best way to describe it.
And when I heard that Ms. Walters had joined the team at Spencer Hill Press and that they were going to be editing and re-releasing Betrayed I was also thrilled. I had heard of this series by the author but had not yet had a chance to read either of the two books. I even own the first book for my Kindle.
But now that Spencer Hill Press will be re-releasing and editing it so that a read of the first book isn’t necessary, I will wait. From having read Daimon and Half-Blood, I know that their team of editors is fantastic and I don’t want my first experience of this series to be affected by a book that might not have that level of excellence. I may check out Awakened after the fact just for comparison, but since Betrayed doesn’t require a read of Awakened, I’ll hold off for now.
Back to the cover – this is a cover reveal after all. I love this new cover so much more than the original cover which looked unusually Photoshopped. When looking at it on screen I wasn’t sure if the woman’s head was mean to look as if it was growing out of the male cover model’s arm at an unusual angle or not. So, I’m ecstatic to see this new, powerful image of the guardian angel looking as if he’s reaching out toward the heavens.
About the Author
I grew up reading Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries before I graduated to Mills & Boons (starting with Janet Daily’s Shutter the Sky).
I enjoy good love stories, tingly mysteries and wondrous adventures. When I finished college and decided to be a stay-at-home mother, I devoured books like they were going out of production, until reading just wasn’t enough. So I decided to teach myself to write fiction.
I’ve written picture books, contemporary and romantic suspense, biracial/multicultural books, and finally YA fantasy. Most of them are still taking up RAM on my computer. When I’m not knee-deep in battles between Guardians and demons, I write adult contemporary romance (the Fitzgerald family series), sassy, stubborn and gutsy women anyone can identify with and men anyone would be proud to claim. When not writing, I do things with my family, five children or my darling husband of nineteen years. I live in a picturesque valley in Utah, the setting for my YA series.
