Hardcover Release News: Shadows & Crowns by S.M. Gaither

I am so excited and honored to be a part of the hardcover announcement and cover reveal team for S.M. Gaither's Shadows & Crowns series!

Today, 27 October 2022, marks the hardcover release for the first two books in this series, The Song of the Marked and A Twist of the Blade.

I remember quite vividly back in early 2021 when I was casually perusing Etsy for some indie marvels to occupy my reading time, and I came across this lovely book (books 1 and 2 were the only ones out at the time). It was one of my first indie fantasy purchases, after falling down that rabbit hole, and I’ve not gone back since. I’m so, so happy to see it all over social media feeds now. The author has really put a lot of sweat equity into beautifying the covers and polishing the writing for this second edition.

I highly recommend this series for romantasy fans, and be forewarned—The Song of the Marked has a wicked jaw dropper for an ending!

Shadows & Crowns at a glance:

My sincerest thanks to the author for gifting me the first hardcover. I just love this series and could not believe I was picked to be a part of the reveal. I also own Gaither's The Serpents and Kings Trilogy. I will eventually get around to purchasing The Shift Chronicles
