Steven Montano is one of my favourite writers. Not only does he write great books (his Blood Skies series is a bloody mix of dystopian military sci-fi, sorcerer fantasy and vampire horror…how can you go wrong with that?), but he’s also fun to follow on twitter and always there when you need a hand. So when I found out he needed somewhere to do a cover reveal, I said “hell, yeah!”
Turns out, Steven is starting a new series called The Skullborn Trilogy and the first book, City of Scars, is coming out soon. With names like City of Scars and Skullborn, you know it’s going to be good! Check out the blurb and get a first peek at the cover below!

It’s been three decades since the Blood Queen led her legions on a brutal campaign of conquest and destruction, and the Empires are still struggling to rebuild. Now, in the distant aftermath of the war, the real battle is about to begin.
Haunted by the crimes of his past, fallen knight Azander Dane ekes out a mercenary existence as he drifts from one city to the next. His latest job is to hunt down Ijanna Taivorkan, a powerful outlaw witch desperately seeking a way to escape her destiny.
Dane and Ijanna find themselves in Ebonmark, the City of Scars, where deadly crime guilds and shadowy agents of the White Dragon Empire prepare for a brutal confrontation. Pursued by apocalypse cults, mad alchemists, exiled giants and werewolf gangs, Dane and Ijanna soon learn a deadly lesson – in Ebonmark, only the cruelest and most cunning can survive.
City of Scars is the first volume of The Skullborn Trilogy, an all new epic fantasy adventure from the author of the Blood Skies series.
