As we enter this new year, it’s time to announce our upcoming titles! To keep the suspense, we’re going to announce them one at a time over the coming weeks, with the full list and launch dates announced at the end.

Up first, is one of my books and the third and final installment in the Crimson Winter series: City of Ruby!

Crimson Winter is a YA science fantasy adventure set on a desert world where the sun never sets and the god infuse their ‘Chosen’ with power. Yukari Namikoya, a sixteen year old girl from Tokyo finds our she is one of these ‘Chosen’ after she gets transported to Crimson Winter while fleeing from the Vile Emperor, the tyrannical ruler of the Ruby City. In the first book, Ruins of Sapphire, Yukari and her friends crossed the desert to find allies in the last fertile land on the planet. In Lands of Jade, Yukari risks everything to protect the Kingdom of Taiyou and the people she’s come to love against overwhleming odds. An now, in City of Ruby, Yukari must travel to the last place she’d ever thought she’d go in order to find the answers she needs to finally save the world.

The cover reveal is coming soon and then before you know it, it will be time for the launch, but for now, here’s the blurb:

Show what makes you weak, so they fear what makes you strong…

 Reeling after the fall of the Kingdom of Taiyou, Yukari Namikoya and her remaining allies find themselves reduced to scared refugees hidden far below the earth in the Temple of Machalite. The dreaded Lady Lilyth rules in Taiyou now and threatens to bring the whole world under her dominion one piece at a time.

 And what the Lady Lilyth can’t control, she plans to destroy.

In a desperate bid for the survival and freedom of the various races of Crimson Winter, Yukari must seek to uncover secrets the Vile Emperor has kept hidden for a millenia and in order to do this, she has to journey to the last place she’d ever thought she’d go – the Ruby City.
