Blurb:

Sixth and final book in the EOTW series. Breeze has been defeated, and the Clans have reclaimed their home. But as the Clans struggle to survive a vicious leafbare, their greatest enemy yet prepares to return. Silentstorm must finally make her sacrifice, but what will it cost her to stand against the darkness? And in the end, will it be enough, or will darkness consume the light?

-~-

And here it finally is. Agh, I feel so weird posting this, I feel kind of anxious. I was already anxious tonight, but this isn't helping. I'm both excited, and anxious, and sad that this is the last book in the main EOTW series.

Here's the cover for our last book. I'm not totally happy with the texture on those trees. I tried something new, and I tried to make it detailed. Not sure how realistic it looks to a real tree, but at least it looks better than some of my other covers, and the now dusted on the bark looks nice, I think. I'm really happy with how the texture and shading on the snow turned out, and I'm also really happy with the colors for the title and circle, and how the cat in the middle turned out. :D The anatomy is much better than anything I've done on my other covers, and so is the fur texture and shading. :D

As for who the cat on the cover is... I'm not going to tell you yet. I'll just say, it's someone we haven't met yet, but we will eventually meet in the course of this book. I'll let you know when we've met them.

Our title for book six is Silent Sacrifice, as you can see, which is a clear reference to the main prophecy of the series. ^^ This is also the only title, other than Faded Boundaries, which has not been changed at all since I first came up with it. All of the other titles underwent at least one change before I decided on the final version, but I just jumped right into writing FB before I could think of a better title (wish I had). As for this one, I always knew that this was going to be the title. It references the prophecy, and it strikes the ominous tone I wanted. We're finally getting down to wrapping up the prophecy, and the series. Are you guys ready? I'm not sure that I am. But I'm posting the allegiances and prologue in just a minute, so we're starting anyway. There's going to be a moon and a half time skip from the end of COTF to the first chapter of this book, so we'll see some changes in the allegiances reflecting that time having passed.

This looks very, very nice. I wonder if this cat'd be the new POV, maybe maybe not. Also, I noticed each eye was a differnent color, amber and gray (I think that's gray.) If so, I feel that they will be significant, as not many cats in the story have grey eyes other than Silentstorm and Jaykit..

Me neither. But I've missed writing this while drawing the ref sheets, so I'm glad to be back at it in that respect. And there'll be more novellas, probably.

Differently-colored eyes, like Aspenlily! I'm excited to find out who the cat is, hopefully an ally.

We shall see. ^^ And yep, similar eyes to Aspenlily. ^^ I don't use multi-colored eyes that often, but every so often.

I kind of thought Silentstorm would be on the cover...perhaps not.

I considered it, but she already had a cover to herself, and I wanted to let a different cat have each cover.

Ah, that makes sense. Even though Firestar was shown on every cover of the original series, it makes very much sense.

Yeah, I always like getting to show a new cat in the center every time. ^^
