What I Love about This Cover: I love the leggings the women in this series wear. I always wanted a pair as a kid. I also love the geological backgrounds in the series of covers (The Rowan, Damia, Damia’s Children, The Tower & the Hive, etc.).

What I Don’t Love about This Cover: The man in the background (I can’t remember if that’s supposed to be her father or her future husband) has some serious weird brows. He looks Neanderthal rather than human. That always bothered me.

About the author

Raven Oak

Bestselling science fiction & fantasy author Raven Oak is best known for Amaskan’s Blood, Class-M Exile, and the collection Joy to the Worlds: Mysterious Speculative Fiction for the Holidays.

She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on, enjoying cartography, or staring at the ocean.

She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.
