I had a fantastic time illustrating this cover for Jordan Heikkinen’s new novel The Siren’s Last Song (The War of Six Years). The tale follows the world of the once-peaceful Neuterran, at risk of slipping back into wars of the past.

‘As bitter winter winds begin to sweep across the lands of Neuterran, three of the Ruling Lords of the Four Kingdoms receive letters with word of the King’s Death. The letter sent to the fourth Lord - the King’s son, Prince Leeroy - tells only of his father’s ailing health, nothing more. With that omission, decades of peace between the Four Kingdoms start to unravel and unlikely paths begin to converge. A girl of sixteen tends to her jealous heart in a black castle perched above the sea. A woman plagued by a grief she will not name finds relief, if not true solace, in the arms of an executioner. A Lord’s daughter agrees to marry a Prince not for love, nor gold, but to distance herself from an overly familiar knight. And deep within the lush green Swamplands of the South, a soon-to-be Queen loses sleep at the thought of her husband ruling above all.’

Find out more about the novel here and get your copy at Amazon or Barnes&Nobel!
