We’re on a roll this fall! We just revealed the cover of our upcoming children’s picture book; Libby the Lobivia Jajoiana by Regan W.H. Macaulay, Kevin Risk and Gordon Bagshaw, which you can pre-order and learn all about here. Now, we’re revealing the cover of Mirror’s Despair by yours truly, Justine Alley Dowsett and Mirror World Publishing’s co-founder Murandy Damodred. The release of Mirror’s Despair marks the culmination of over six years of work as it is the fourth and final instalment in our flagship dark fantasy romance series. Six years ago we launched our first book, Mirror’s Hope, and in so doing we began our journey as a publishing house and now, here we are with over 40 books and 26 collaborators (both authors and artists). We hope you’ll join with us in celebrating this momentous occasion and consider checking out this series along with everything else we we have to offer in our online bookstore.
Without further ado, I present the cover of Mirror’s Despair, illustrated by the exceptionally talented Sara Biddle:
Mirena’s back to claim what’s hers; this time, Tendro is ready for her.
Following ten tense years of absence, Mirena Calanais suddenly resurfaces as the Avatar of the Destroyer. With Abraxas’ dark army at her back, she’s determined to reclaim what she feels is her due; control over the lands the Panarch’im once ruled.
His political career and his marriage both drying up, Tendro Seynor long suspected this day would come, but what he isn’t prepared for is Mirena’s return to his personal life. There’s more to Mirena than her persona as the Dark Avatar; she’s the mother of the son Tendro hasn’t seen since the day he was born. As her presence in his life grows, Mirena confides in Tendro that she’s being haunted by someone who should be dead. As this vengeful presence closes in on her and the Destroyer’s hand thouches the world once more, they begin to realize their son may be at the center of it all and his innocence hangs in the balance.
Can Tendro and Mirena put aside their rivalry for the sake of their families, or will the bad blood between them finally escalate to the point where it has the power to tear the entire world apart?

Her books, which she often co-writes with her sister, Murandy Damodred, range from young adult science fiction to dark fantasy/romance. She earned a BA in Drama from the University of Windsor, honed her skills as an entrepreneur by tackling video game production, and now she dedicates her time to writing, publishing, and occasionally role-playing with her friends.
With a background in Drama and Communications from the University of Windsor, Murandy Damodred (right) enjoys fantasy fiction with strong romantic subplots. She is an avid role-player and is happiest when living vicariously through her characters. Though she’d rather think of herself as the heroine of her next novel, in the real world she is a new mom living in Windsor, Ontario, training to become a nurse.
