Cover Reveal for Beware of the White


Kai Strand's new middle grade fantasy adventure, Beware of the White, releases on May 17th (That's only 7 weeks!). 

About the book: 

As is tradition, Terra learns on the Saturday past her twelfth birthday that she is a Natures Spirit. It is her legacy to serve in the peaceful underground city of Concord. Learning she is named in a prophecy and being threatened by the leader of the death tribe…that part breaks tradition.
The Trepidus are the death janitors of the Underworld, responsible for delivering fatalities with a smile and cleaning up after themselves, until Blanco, recent leader of the Trepidus, decides the day of reckoning for his species is coming. He begins organizing the creatures and leads them toward an uprising. The prophecy says there is one person who can stop him. Terra.
          With Spirit of Security, Frank, protecting her, Terra attempts to complete her training and discover her Spirit talents. Together, they go on a rogue investigation to learn how to defeat Blanco. In the end, it comes down to a battle of the minds. The future of Concord is at stake. Will Blanco, the older, more experienced being win? Or will Terra, the young, new Spirit earn back the peace of the city?
***
This book has been years upon years in the making and is a labor of love for Kai. Reluctant heroine, Terra, and crush worthy hero, Frank, join forces to defeat the über creepy bad guy, Blanco. But when death is your business, can you even be defeated?

    1. That's what I love about it too, Sara. The story is mostly a fantasy adventure, but the bad guys are creepy and I love that the cover artist was able to portray both elements. Thanks for visiting.

    1. This is one of those "Recommend if you like" Narnia books. An alternate land, adventure, intriguing creatures. So much fun. I can't wait for kids to escape into Terra's adventure!
