I’ve been sitting on this cover for a while just dying to share it with you guys. I’ll admit that I thought I was done with the Celestial Downfall Trilogy once Stand for Justice was finished. (It is a trilogy… after all.) But! When I saw one of my favorite designers put this cover up for sale, it was just too perfect. It SCREAMS Manor Saffron and an entire new story came to mind. I don’t like to do standalone full-length books, but I’ll make an exception for this one. I am so thrilled to introduce… Manor Saffron’s origin tale!
Every kingdom has an origin… this is Manor Saffron’s founding story.
There are four great Manors across Terra that care for the angels cast from Celestia, but it had not always been that way.
Valeria is the first wingless angel to survive in a world overrun by demons and malice. Raised on the unforgiving Obsidian Sea, she’ll learn what it means to be Windborn, and what she’ll have to sacrifice to change a broken world she’s grown to love.
The humans huddle in the last remaining stronghold: Leocivat. They are ruled by a governing force of Hallowed known as the Coterie. Nile, their youngest and newest addition, strives to understand how the demons have come to dominate the outlands and continue to ravage the world. He will find out what it takes stop them, even if he’s the only one willing to try.
Nile needs an angel. Valeria needs a guide. When Valeria and Nile join forces, the foundation of the world will be shaken, and a new one will rise.
This is a standalone novel written in the same world as the Celestial Downfall Series.
“Manor Saffron” is in the early stages of writing and currently available for long-term preorder from non-Amazon outlets.
A little bit about release timing of upcoming books. Book 1 and 2 in the Celestial Downfall Trilogy have already been released and I’m working hard on book 3 right now! “Officially” Book 3 will come out in September. Manor Saffron will release shortly after that in December.
However, I have strong plans to bump the release schedule up so you don’t have to wait so long for the next books. I’ll have a better idea of how much I can improve this release schedule come March, so be sure to stay tuned!
