Cover Reveal & Pre-order!! Blood Borne (The Republic #3) is Coming July 2017! <3


It’s official: Blood Borne has a cover, a release date, a blurb, and pre-order link! *busts out the confetti and bubble machines*

Thanks to the amazing, magical cover design goddess, Natasha Snow, and Less Than Three Press for this cover! It’s a perfect fit for the story: dark and sinister but colourful with a touch of life. That’s pretty much the characters’ lives in a nutshell.

Blood Borne is the story of Ress, previously introduced in Four, and Adren, a new character with a key role in the series. There’s a lot addressed in the book. On one hand, it’s a story about being a survivor, trying being a good person despite terrible circumstances, and going forward even when you’re falling apart and giving up. What happens when you’re isolated in toxic power games, watching horrible things happen, and you can only do so much without losing absolutely everything.

On the other hand, the book is about identity and being seen and accepted for who you are, even when you don’t know all the answers about yourself. About saving yourself when no one else will, rising up from oppression and harmful emotional/mental conditioning, and doing what’s right in the face of adversity.

There’s more to it, but that’s for later. Right now, here’s the C O V E R!

For Ress, survival is a complicated nightmare. Caught between two masters on different sides of the law, his life is falling apart one bad decision at a time. All he wants is to be is a good person, a loyal family man, and a successful metalsmith–a dream he can never obtain while he works for the Shar-denn, the violent gang that plagues the republic of Kattal.

To make matters worse, he works as an informant for the High Council. He scrapes through both jobs waiting for his last breath. As the Shar-denn motto says: the only way out is dead.

No stranger to living complicated decisions, Adren is caught between worlds of cir own. As the child of a Shar-denn faction boss, cir life is a conflicted tangle of expectation and duty. When cir family is arrested, Adren manages to escape, but nowhere is safe. Desperate and on the run, Adren is determined to punish Ress for turning in cir family. No one who betrays the gang can live. Ress must pay the price, even if Adren has to go against everything ce is.
