So, anyone that knows me knows my deep seated love for Elise Kova’s books. The ‘Air Awakens‘ series is the first thing that comes to mind when friends ask for fantasy recommendations, with its heart rending romance, rich plot and soul aching character development.
‘The Farmer’s War‘ is the third book in the Golden Guard Trilogy, a prequel trilogy focusing on the much beloved members of Prince Baldair’s personal guard and inner circle. The first book ‘The Crown’s Dog‘ is told from the perspective of Jax and Erion, the second ‘The Prince’s Rogue‘ from the POV of Baldair and Raylynn, and the last ‘The Farmer’s War‘ from the POV of Daniel.
The covers for the Air Awakens and Golden Guard Series are the stunning work of Merilliza Chan. Just when you think they couldn’t possibly get any more stunning, she manages to create something even more astounding.
So, without further ado, here is the beautiful cover for ‘The Farmer’s War‘, the final novel in the Golden Guard Trilogy, to be released on May 2, 2017.
Lieutenant Craig Youngly has only ever wanted one thing in his life — to join the illustrious Golden Guard. In pursuit of his goals, he has found himself protege to Raylynn Westwind, notable Guard member and favorite of Prince Baldair. He has fought for two years in the sweltering North and now prepares to embark on a mission on behalf of the Guard that could secure his long-sought membership. It’s the opportunity Craig has been waiting for, until Raylynn’s attention turns toward another swordsman, Daniel Taffl.
Daniel has always been a man of modest aspirations. As a farmer’s son from the East, he seeks a soldier’s wage to support a future for the woman of his dreams when he returns from the front lines. It isn’t until he’s conscripted into Craig’s mission that he learns his sword-craft has caught the eyes of the powers above him.
Craig sees his mission as an opportunity to impress the guard and exert his authority over Daniel. Daniel sees it merely as the chance to secure a more financially stable future. Their goals seem too simple to go awry. But, in the perilous jungles of the North, luck is something both men find to be in short supply.
