 Today I participate in the cover reveal for a book. The title is Awakened (The Legends of Elyndia #1) by Kriston Johnson. And here is the cover:

I realy like the combination of the green nature colours combined with the vivid red of the girl’s clothing. I really think the cover artist did an awesome job.

And now a bit more about this book:

Can fighting for the right side be the wrong thing to do?

Draven, the tyrant ruler of Elyndia for the last one thousand years, searches for the one who can fulfill his prophecy.

The Paladins, an elite band of warriors sworn to protect their way of life at all cost, search for the one with the ability to bring their world crumbling down.

An innocent girl, tormented by demons only she can see, lives on the brink of insanity and longs for a life of peace.

When seventeen-year-old Jade Rosenberg reads from an antique book, she has no idea she just read an incantation awaking her inherited power. But when opposing—and equally terrifying—groups invade her home, she learns she is descended from an enchanted realm and a member of a powerful race thought to have been hunted to extinction.

Ripped from her world, Jade is forced to seek refuge from those who want her dead. She is given one of two options and the time has come for her to make a choice: assassinate their sworn enemy…

Or sacrifice her soul.

I think the blurb sounds really intriguing. The first sentence makes me really curious already, I mean usually fighting for the right side is right, so how can it be wrong. Although that sentence that the girl lives on the brink of insanity makes me doubt again if I will like it, because for some reason I can’t stand reading about insanity or crazy people in general.


Kriston Johnson lives in Southwest Washington with her husband, teenage son, and miniature Australian Shepherd. Her home rests at the fringe of an old growth forest that she insists is the home of Jason Voorhees. Her husband thinks that’s a ridiculous assumption, because everyone knows it’s really Bigfoot. Every summer Kriston participates in the annual pilgrimage to Faerieworlds, a real life faerie realm here on Earth, and has an unhealthy obsession with Star Wars, The Vampire Diaries, and Iron Man. Awakened is her first novel. You can visit her online at

    • I do like the cover, but I am not yet sure if I am going to like the book. I think I’ll wait til a few other people have read it and then decide whether to read it or not.
