The year is getting away from me. I can’t believe it’s already time to reveal the first cover of 2023, but it is! City of Ruby is the third and final installment in the Crimson Winter trilogy and has never before been released as a paperback. This new edition of the series has been edited and re-released with a modified cover, and City of Ruby is no exception. If you’re interested in the series as a whole and you haven’t yet picked it up, you can find Vol. 1; Ruins of Sapphire, here. And Vol. 2; Lands of Jade, here. City of Ruby will launch April 17th, 2023! Pre-order will be available soon, so keep an eye out for that!
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.
