Today, I’m really pleased to be sharing with you some book covers.  The Bastard of Fairyland by Phil Parker is one of my books for the Self Published Fantasy Blog Off.  I haven’t read this book yet but it will be coming up on my read list shortly.  The author has recently had his covers reworked and has posted about it here.  I figured this would make a great time to highlight this series as part of Wyrd and Wonder’s #Spooktasticreads because this is dark urban fantasy which I love and I think it fits perfectly for this time of the year.  Plus, I’m all about the cover love.  So, without further ado check out the covers (with info re the book below):

bastard from fairyland


The Vengeance

He’s Robin Goodfellow to those he knows. Puck to those he’ll kill. He’s lived among humans for centuries, they think he’s a demon. The teenagers he’s forced to protect, despise him.

The Fae may have banished him, to live among humanity where isolation has made him bitter, where he’s been persecuted because of his sexuality. But now they want him back. They’ve declared war on the humans and Robin is vital to their success, so long as he’s prepared to release Puck.

The Bastard from Fairyland is a dark, urban fantasy. It’s where A Midsummer Night’s Dream meets Game of Thrones.

    These are gorgeous. I don’t know what the original covers look like, but I can see why his sales would jump after this change.

    • @lynnsbooks

      They really are very eye catching – which is obviously precisely what you want from a cover.

    Good covers can definitely make a huge difference (even if we all know we shouldnt judge a book by its cover). I’m curious what the old ones looked like 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m also curious – dark fae. And, yes, I love these covers and even though you shouldn’t judge the cover is the first thing that draws the eye and these would tempt me to pick up from the shelf and examine further.

  8. Kathy @ Pages Below the Vaulted Sky

    I LOVE the look of The Bastard of Fairyland!! And I love that the series has matching colour schemes 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I think we all have that in common – matching covers. Is there anything more likely to give you the twitches than mismatched covers!
      Lynn 😀

    I like the cover of Renegade of Two Realms the most. Hope you enjoy the book when you get to it.

    • @lynnsbooks

      These covers are so good – I would definitely pick up the book with these eye catchers.
