Throwback Thursday: Soul Born

My submission this week:

Soul Born 
by Kevin James Breaux
All Opal wanted was to be respected as a wielder of magic, but her teachers passed her over time and time again. When a mysterious warlord embarks on a conquest to destroy the lands of Illyia Opal seizes an opportunity to step out from the shadows of her instructors and take her rightful spot among them. Tala, an alluring young elf, was banished from her tribe, hunted and nearly killed by the beasts that dwell in the deep forests, but more than anything else she is a survivor. Joining forces with an ancient elemental power Tala finds herself in the center of an unrelenting human war. She never wanted any of this. Flesh like leather and bone as strong as steel Karn, a veteran from the first kingdom to fall, is fueled by vengeance. While pushing ever headlong into battle Karn begins to recall memories of another life; ghosts that haunt his dreams. Through death of soul, their world is born.
I have been curious about this one ever since I spied the Dan Dos Santos cover. Yep, I have it and I still need to get to it.
Any books you got because of the cover artist?

  2. Ooo I haven't heard of this one Melissa! There's tons of books I've bought or added to the list because of their covers. I think the last one that stands out as hugely memorable was Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. I fell in love with that cover immediately and didn't even bother reading the synopsis until later. I just had to have that cover!

  5. Once you pointed out that it's a Dan Dos Santos cover, I could easily see his style. But at first glance, I never would have guessed.
    The story sounds interesting too. I hope you get to read it soon, can't wait to read your opinion.
