Cover Art Reveal and Giveaway | The Defiance (Brilliant Darkness, #2) by A.G. Henley

It is my pleasure to share with you the cover to a much anticipated sequel by A.G. Henley! THE DEFIANCE is book two of her Brilliant Darkness series. The first book, THE SCROUGE, was one of my most favorite books last year.
You can read my review of THE SCROUGE from the Blog Tour I participated in (and enter to win the entire series below!). At $2.99 (Amazon.com) that’s an  incredible deal for an amazing book. THE SCROUGE was a 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Award Finalist.

Without further ado, here is the cover to THE DEFIANCE, due to publish July 29th, 2013!

Suspicion Trust. Fear Compassion. Hate Love.

Fennel and Peree learned the truth: the Scourge, and their world, is not what it seems. Now they need to convince their people that everything they believe is a lie.

An impossible task, especially when someone seems resolved to try anything—even arson and butchery—to destroy Fenn and Peree’s new bond and crush the frail truce between the Groundlings and the Lofties.

Unable to tell friend from foe and with the Scourge pushing both groups to the breaking point, Fenn must again decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to ensure the people of the forest’s future.

Only this time, the price of peace may be too high to bear.

A.G. Henley is the author of the young adult novel, THE SCOURGE. She is also a clinical psychologist, which means people either tell her their life stories on airplanes, or avoid her at parties when they’ve had too much to drink. Neither of which she minds. When she’s not writing fiction or shrinking heads, she can be found herding her children and their scruffy dog, Guapo, to various activities while trying to remember whatever she’s inevitably forgotten to tell her husband. She lives in Denver, Colorado.


I was completely serious when I said that THE SCROUGE was one of my favorite books from last year!

Therefore, one winner will receive a Kindle edition of all three of A.G.’s Brilliant Darkness publications!

That includes: The Scrouge (Brilliant Darkness, #1), The Keeper (#1.5) and The Defiance (#2) (pre-ordered once available)!
