Today I have the honor to present the amazing cover for the upcoming book Windward, written by the talented S. Kaeth. Just look at this beauty and tell me you’re not interested in reading the book?
Windward will be released on September 27th, but you can already pre-order on Amazon.
When dragons fight, mountains weep.
In nests high in the mountains, dragons and dragonbonded share their lives, thoughts, feelings, and ambitions.
Palon and her partner, the dragon Windward, are renowned among their nest for their flying skill. Their days are filled with everything she loves, especially riding the wind. Even being tasked with teaching their way of life to Tebah, a rebellious newly bonded teenager, can’t bring her down too much.
But when treasures from the dragons’ hoards are found in Palon’s collection, her idyllic life comes crashing down. She battles to prove her innocence, while her every move is cast as further evidence against her. Tebah’s suspicion, homesickness, and defiance would be frustrating even in easy times. With Palon in the spotlight while her rivals smear her name at every turn and stir up plots of revenge, her teenage charge’s behavior proves dangerous.
Dragon tempers shorten, and challenges and disputes shake the ground. Palon will have to trust more than just herself if she hopes to once more own the sky.
About the author
S Kaeth is a dreamer and always has been, as well as a mega geek of various geekeries.
She was raised in the gorgeous Driftless area of the Midwest United States on a steady diet of Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, mythology, legends of King Arthur, superheroes, and Doctor Who. As a child, she told stories constantly, to family, to friends, and she wrote some of the worst fan fiction and short stories that no one will ever get to see. Seriously, they were bad.
As S got older, she was inspired a great deal by Andre Norton’s Janus novels, the Foundation series, the Ender’s Game series, Wheel of Time, Ursula K LeGuin, and books like Ringworld. She spent her free time with her best friend or her imagination, walking and thinking and making up worlds. They created their very own roleplaying system with its own class system and lore and mechanics. In fact, it actually creates the basic underpinnings of the “magic system” in her novels today, though she’s polished and improved those early brainstormings.
Her favorite books and inspirations include: Michael J Sullivan, Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archives, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks’ Lightbringer Series, NK Jemisin, and Patrick Rothfuss.
She was honored to be a Writer In Motion!
