Daniel Cohen: Master of the Veil

Daniel A. Cohen, author of The Ancillary's Mark, has just signed on with Spencer Hill Press for his upcoming book, Masters of the Veil. SHP is a smaller publishing house, but has put out exceptional YA fiction like The Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and The Ganzfield series by Kate Kaynak. So congrats, Daniel!

While the book won't hit shelves until March of 2012, I'm happy to be able to share the cover with you and a little about the story!

Life can’t get much better for Sam Lock. Popular, good-looking, and with a future as a professional football player… every guy at Stanton High School wishes he were Sam. That is, until his championship football game, when Sam accidentally links with an ancient source of energy known as the Veil and reveals his potential to become a powerful sorcerer.

Sam’s dreams are crushed as he is whisked off to Atlas Crown, a community of sorcerers who utilize the Veil as a part of everyday life. Once there, he trains beside a mute boy who speaks through music, an eternal sage who is the eyes and ears of the Veil, and a beautiful girl who's pretty sure Sam's an idiot.

As it becomes clear that Sam is meant for power magic—the most feared and misunderstood form of sorcery—people beyond Atlas Crown learn of his dangerous potential. An exiled group of power sorcerers are eager to recruit Sam, believing that he is destined to help them achieve their long-held goal. If they succeed, they could bring about the downfall of not only Atlas Crown… but all of humankind.
