We at FanFiAddict want to thank Derek Prior for allowing us the opportunity to reveal the cover for his upcoming title, The Hand of Vilchus, which is Book 2 in his Sorcerers’ Isle series. You can find Book 1, The Codex of Her Scars, here.
Without further ado, let’s get a peak at that cover, eh?
About the Sorcerer’s Isle
As rival clans battle to rule the Isle of Branikdür, apprentice sorcerer Snaith Harrow and Tey Moonshine, the woman he loves, must master their powers to face the coming war and conquer their inner demons.
“Prior’s latest novel is a masterpiece.”
“This is honestly the best Grimdark fantasy novel I’ve ever come across. Truly bleak and unforgiving, populated with loathsome characters and a Stygian plot that’ll make your skin crawl.”
D. Woodhouse, Audible Listener on The Codex of Her Scars.
