Hello and welcome to the cover reveal for D.A. Smith’s next fantasy novel, Wrath from the Mountains! I was a massive fan of the first book in the series, The Blood of Outcasts, so I am super thrilled to both have the opportunity to reveal the cover for book 2 and get a copy in my hands. If you haven’t already read it, you can check out my review of The Blood of Outcasts here (I gave it a 9/10, a near perfect score!) The short of it though is that Smith has written an extremely compelling character in Masako, the disgraced samurai in dogged pursuit of redemption.
The Blood of Outcasts
Hello everyone and welcome to the cover re-reveal for D.A. Smith’s excellent Japanese-inspired Dark/Historical Fantasy, The Blood of Outcasts! I absolutely loved this book when I read it back in March and I recently was able to make time to write down my thoughts about it. You can read my full review here, if you’d like. Spoiler alert: I absolutely loved it!
Masako is a flawed, angry, and desperate person in a dogged pursuit of redemption for her fallen clan. The depths to which she’ll sink to achieve her goal and the questionable methods she uses to get there ultimately make her a compelling, if unlikable character. With twists and turns as sharp as Masako’s katana and a blistering pace that will leave you breathless, The Blood of Outcasts is a must-read for fans of Japanese-inspired fantasy. The tale of the Dattori Clans’ downfall and Masako’s rage-filled quest to restore her Master’s honor will leave its mark on your soul, as it has mine.
