B is for Battle of Actium

Today's A to Z post is a COVER REVEAL for Astarte's Wrath by Trisha Wolfe!


Isn't that cover gorgeous? I love her bangs. My pub sister at Omnific Publishing---Trisha Wolfe---is the author of Destiny's Fire, and this prequel is surely another YA page-turner.

The title of this novel would've been perfect for yesterday's "A" post but nooooo, Trisha just HAD to coordinate the reveal for April 2nd, so I got creative by using the blurb (the Battle of Actium) to find my "B". (Just kidding, Trisha--I'm thrilled to be part of your cover reveal!)

Two thousand years before Dez Harkly developed her secret powers, Kythan Astarte vowed to free the Kythans from the binds that enslaved them to the Egyptian pharaohs and sorcerers. Discover the prophecy that originated from a very different time, and spans generations to link two very different girls...This is the beginning.

Set against the backdrop of the Battle of Actium, in the city of Alexandria, Star struggles with her guardian duties as her feelings for the newly named pharaoh of Egypt grow deeper. Not only is Caesarian her duty, he’s the son of Cleopatra, and he’s…human. All of which makes their love forbidden.

But when a conspiracy linked to Caesar, Caesarian’s own father, creeps its ways into Alexandria, Star must choose between helping her fellow Kythans free themselves of their servitude, or protecting her charge—the last pharaoh—while Egypt burns around her.


Looks fantastic! Thank you for stopping by for this challenge.

Hi! I'm stopping in from the A-Z challenge.

This definitely looks like a very interesting book, I'll have to add it to my list.

And re the previous comment - I'm guessing the background didn't load for them, because I can see the white text on the blue background just fine.

That cover is indeed beautiful. Covers are so important ... at least to me when I am book browsing! Love the cover to your STREAMLINE as well. I had no trouble with your font's coloring, by the way! :-)

Duncan, sorry the ole' blog didn't load properly for you.

Rebekah, I don't understand half of the words in Astarte's Wrath's blurb--you can tell what kind of history student I am! I need a good education by reading the book.

Roland, agreed on the cover's beauty and thank you for the compliment about Streamline's cover. I had something else in mind but I'm so glad my publisher encouraged me to go with that one.

I think a previous commenter was right about the computer not loading, for I can read your post just fine. And I like the white on the blue. And you're a good friend for coordinating your posts. The cover is indeed gorgeous with temptation to read inside. New Follower here.

Hi Jennifer! I'm so happy to have an Omni sister in the A to Z this year. :D I didn't know Trish's new book was a prequel to Destiny's Fire. Very cool! The history in DF was quite intriguing so I'm glad to know we'll get more details...and a new romance.
