Destiny's Fire by Trisha Wolfe

My talented critique partner and friend, Trisha Wolfe, had her book's cover released yesterday. It's super pretty on a way-beyond-this-universe scale. Gorgeous! I'm gonna share it with you if you haven't seen it yet. Plus, she's a brilliant author! I've had a chance to crit another one of her books and was amazed at her ability to craft a catching story.

Here's the cover for DESTINY'S FIRE coming January 10, 2012.

Stunning! Dazzling! Striking! Huh?

Goodreads Blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind—a part of a nearly extinct race of Kythan descended from ancient guardians who protected the pharaohs of Egypt. As Shythe, they must keep their shape-shifting ability and electric power hidden from the humans of their steam-powered world.

It’s the year 2040 and the Shythe Council has lowered their barrier, allowing the Narcolym—the dominant race of Kythan whose Flame ushered in the steam era—to enter their haven. As the Narcolym airships get closer, Dez secretly trains for an attack that her best friend Jace believes is coming despite the Treaty Act. Not only is Dez wary of war, and her growing affection for Jace, but she fears the change her fast-approaching birthday will bring.

When her power rockets out of control, Dez knows she’ll never attend the Shythe Academy with her friends, and worse, her mother’s planning to run. But a Narco named Reese could change her fate . . . if she can trust him. After Dez discovers why the Narcos have really come to Haven Falls, her guarded world crumbles. She’s forced to choose between the race who’s raised her and the enemy she’s feared her whole life.

DESTINY'S FIRE is an emotional journey of Dez’s struggle to overcome her fear and embrace her power—her destiny.

Check it out, friends!
