Cover Reveal for Lichgates (New Edition & Re-Release) by S.M. Boyce #amreading #fantasy

Posted by on September 6, 2012 in Announcements | 2 comments

I’m sooooo excited about the re-release of LICHGATES (Book One of the Grimoire Trilogy). The new edition will have bonus content and is going to be released through Immortal Ink Publishing. The new book cover is also TO DIE FOR (though I loved the old one, too!). Now you get to see the new cover for the first time! Feast your eyes!


The Grimoire turns its own pages and can answer any question asked of it…and Kara Magari is its next target.


Kara has no idea what she’s getting herself into when she stumbles across the old book while hiking along a hidden trail. Once she opens it, she’s thrown into Ourea: a beautiful world full of terrifying beings that all want the Grimoire’s secrets. Everyone in this new world is trying to find her, but most just want to control the new-found power the Grimoire bestows upon her.


Braeden Drakonin grew up in Ourea, and all he’s ever known in life is lying. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. He has one question to ask the book—one question that can fix everything in his broken world—and he’s not letting Kara out of his sight until he gets an answer.


Kara cannot escape her new life in Ourea. There’s no going back now.


Lichgates  Reviews

“This would make a great movie. A great TV show. Great everything. I mean, Boyce sells it at the concept, but she doesn’t stop there. She delivers.” —Rebecca Hamilton, author of The Forever Girl series

“Boyce’s storytelling is so rich and deftly executed that I found myself bouncing between pure amazement, unadulterated enjoyment, and absolute, perverse envy. She is that good.” H—Tom Winship, author of the Vaempires series

“This is fantasy at its best!” —The Story Seekers Reviews

“The writing is flawless. The kingdoms and surrounding landscapes breathtaking. The Grimoire is a piece of imaginative genius that bedazzles from the moment Kara falls into the land of Ourea.” —Nikki Jefford, author of the Spellbound Trilogy

…and those are only a few reviews. Check out Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads to hear what has people grabbing copies and salivating for the sequel.

Lichgates  New Features

The Lichgates re-release is going to be snazzy. I’m so excited. Here’s what you’ll get with the new edition:
