Hello everyone, today I have an exciting reveal for you all! The cover art for Máire Brophy’s debut novel After The World is below! But before we get to the amazing cover art I thought I should fill you in on the novel.
I came across this novel on Facebook, Máire was requesting some bloggers to review the book and after seeing the description I was the first to sign up. After The World is being released on the 8th May and I have been lucky enough to be given an ARC to review. Below I have listed the synopsis, author bio and finally the cover art. If any of this intrigues you like it did me then you will find a link to the author’s website below the cover art.
After the war is lost, all that remains is to survive. And when you know what you’ve done, you can’t hope for anything more.
Bereft in a hostile world, an orc general struggles to come to terms with his role in the destruction of his people. Running and hiding from the humans and elves that hunt him down, he searches for other orc survivors.
When two human wizards finally pin him down in an abandoned orcish mountain fortress, he must use his wits and cunning to prevail, redeeming himself and the magic of his people.
Author Bio (provided by author)
Máire Brophy lives in Dublin, Ireland. By day, she works with researchers to help develop and express their ideas, and by night she mostly sleeps. In between she’s often found playing Dungeons and Dragons, eating cake and watching movies. She is currently considering learning to play golf. Máire cohosts Irish Writers Podcast – a podcast about writing – and tweets @mairebro. You can find out more information on her website mairebrophy.com. And don’t worry no-one else pronounces her name correctly either.
And the moment we’ve all been waiting for…
Look at that cover! I think it looks pretty damn awesome! If you have been drawn in you can buy this brand new novel through the author’s website on the 8th May!
Edit: There is now an Amazon link that will allow you to buy the book from the 8th May (less than a week now!) So save it in your browser ready for Tuesday!
