Book cover for my fantasy novel
Book One in the Red Season Series
The book is the first of an epic fantasy series. The story spans 5 books in the current arc.
The premise of the book is that a Republic (Free Provinces) has finally known some peace after having defeated their antagonistic, and formerly dominant neighbour state (Solansia). For centuries, the antagonistic state would attack to annex (or reclaim as they saw it) the lands in what became known as 'Red Seasons'. Empowered by a terrible God, Solansia attacks and seeks to enslave all of the Free Provinces, ultimately besieging two of the principle cities of the Free Provinces.
Lead character, Kalfinar, has lost his family and is a drug dependent. He has been demoted, and shamed as a result of his actions when addicted. He has abandoned his faith in God.
Kalfinar struggles to cope with loss, his addiction, and his faith. By the end of book one he has recovered his faith, and discovered feelings for Evelyne. But his 'love interest' has been abducted...
I have included a brief synopsis extra detail in the attachment for a more complete feel of the book.
I have attached example covers I admire, however please do not feel restricted by this style. I am not keen on a cover which harks back to the fantasy covers of the 80's, as I find these a bit 'cheesy'; however I would be interested in interpretations of the theme of the book such as Kalfinar's emotional struggles i.e. his loss, addiction, faith, duty.
There are supernatural themes to the book i.e. effectively angels and demons from the respective Gods.
