Cover Reveal: Goldenfire by A.F.E. Smith

We’re utterly delighted to reveal the cover of A.F.E. Smith’s GOLDENFIRE, book two of The Darkhaven Novels. This cover takes us into slightly darker territory for this brilliant fantasy series, with a highly skilled assassin coming for Ayla Nightshade, the shapeshifting ruler of Darkhaven. An assassin with an agenda, one even their sinister employer knows nothing about:

In Darkhaven, peace doesn’t last long.

Goldenfire

 

Ayla Nightshade has ruled Darkhaven for three years since the tragedy that tore her family apart. She has left her father’s cruel legacy behind and become a leader her people can believe in – or so she hopes.

Tomas Caraway is no longer a disgraced drunk; he’s Captain of the Helm and the partner of the most powerful woman in Darkhaven. He will do everything to protect Ayla and their adopted son against all possible threats.

But a discovery has been made that could have profound consequences for the Nightshade family. There is a weapon so deadly, it can kill even the powerful creatures they turn into. And now, that weapon has fallen into the wrong hands.

An assassin is coming for Ayla, and will stop at nothing to see her dead.

 

GOLDENFIRE is available for pre-order here for £1.99. You can follow the author on Twitter @afesmith and at her website: afesmith.com
