The Mage books have new covers

My wonderful publishers Orbit are releasing a brand new cover look for my first fantasy series, which I tend to think of as The Mage Quintet.

It’s odd, how things unfold. The first time I sat down to tell the story of Asher and Gar and the mages of Lur, I imagined it as a stand alone novel (I know, I know, hard to believe!) and for myself I titled it Kingmaker, Kingbreaker. That single novel ultimately became the Kingmaker, Kingbreaker duology, comprising The Innocent Mage and The Awakened Mage. After writing the Godspeaker trilogy I returned to the Mage world and wrote what became known as the Fisherman’s Children duology: The Prodigal Mage and The Reluctant Mage. Last of all I went back to the beginning and wrote the prequel story of Barl and Morgan, A Blight of Mages.

I love these books. I love these characters. And I really, really love these new covers. I hope you do too and if you’ve not read the Mage books I hope one of these days you’ll give The Innocent Mage a try!
