Percepliquis Cover


When I started releasing my books I pretended that there were crowds of people interested in them. I wrote blogs to the effect, as if I was actually holding a midnight release party where poor fans waited in cold April rains for the doors to open at Amazon. The reality was, back when I was releasing Avempartha, no one really knew, or cared. I didn't think much had changed until the explosion that followed the news about the delay of the final book. Since then I have started to realize that maybe there really are people waiting for the next book. Of course, this isn’t just the next book—Percepliquis is the last book.

Percepliquis is my personal favorite of the series, my chance to finally cut the restraints off myself and the characters, and let them run free for the first time—to let them live up to their full potential.

I know that those of you who have been with me from the beginning have waited a long time. I know of a few fans and old friends who read the first four books as early as 2007, and are still waiting for the conclusion. And while you still have a little more than five months to wait, I wanted to give you a peek. As with every book since Avempartha, I have unveiled the cover here.  Today I present to you Percepliquis, the final cover of The Riyria Revelations. (Concept, art, and design by me)




It All Comes Down To This
The Elves Have Crossed the Nidwalden
And Two Thieves will decide the Future






I saw a great journey. Ten upon the road, she who wears the light will lead the way. The road goes deep into the earth, and into despair. The voices of the dead guide your steps. You walk back in time. The three-thousand-year battle begins again. Cold grips the world, death comes to all, and a choice is before you.

Percepliquis is the final installment of the epic fantasy, The Riyria Revelations.  In this saga that began with The Crown Conspiracy, two thieves caught in the right place at the wrong time were launched on a series of ever escalating adventures that have all lead to this moment. Three thousand years have passed and the time for Novron’s heir to act has arrived.

  5. Wonderful cover art! It's majestic, and the lighting gives it just a little bit of an eerie feeling. My husband and I can hardly wait to see how it all comes out.

  11. No one cared? Listen to you! What about your rabid fans over on Goodreads? ;-)

    Lovely cover. It fits the others perfectly. And that description - I CANNOT WAIT!

    ReplyDelete
  12. "And that description"

    Has no one placed that description? This isn't the first time you've read it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Well, it's the prophesy or sight told to us in... Emerald Storm. Isn't it? I wasn't sure that was the description of this book or not when I read it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oooh, yeah, that is the prophecy from The Emerald Storm. It was that woman in the village, right? Thanks for jarring the memory. Now I'm even MORE excited! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I read this prophecy over and over and over since I first saw it. And even took it in pieces to try and figure it out. I've been waiting for it to come to light here in this book, along with the ELVES! I've been waiting for them since Avempartha.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Me, too, so far as the elves go! Did I already say I CANNOT WAIT? ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh Ham1299, I don't know if you mentioned that you CANNOT WAIT yet. Hmm, ;D But I'm there with you! Waiting for the email reminder (as if I need a reminder! ha!)

    lol.

    I'm really looking forward to all coming together and unfortunately an end, but I have to see how it ends.

    Ham1299 - do you think this could be a picture from the Horn? Or where? That green really gives almost an eerie feel with the angle & distance. A feel of almost not being good. I like it!

  18. Yes, I stood in the cold rain that April night... Well, maybe not, but I would have. Wonderful cover, I really am impatient for this book to be in hand.

  19. Congratulations Melissa on correctly identifying the text.

    On a hunch I took a peak at your blog "My World...In Words and Pages" http://melissa-melsworld.blogspot.com/2011/06/cover-release_29.html and sure enough you had a post about the cover. Thanks for that.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Thank you for showing the link Michael. :)

    And now I know that is the description there. ;D I don't know what I was thinking as I have been over thinking and analyzing that whole scene I just thought you where saying that would all be answered here in this book. lol. Not putting the two together. Thank you.

  21. Melissa ~ I'm guessing the cover is the ancient city, Percepliquis.
