Cover Story! Embers & Echoes by Karsten Knight

I was very excited to see Karsten Knight reveal the cover to book #2, Embers & Echoes, today on his blog!

Take a look:


Every flame casts a shadow.

Ashline Wilde is about to discover that when you’re the reincarnation of a Polynesian volcano goddess, “new beginnings” are just a myth.

Leaving the fiery ruins of her sophomore year behind her, Ash travels to the sizzling beaches of Miami, hot on the trail of the little sister she’s only seen in visions. But her happy family reunion isn’t all palm trees and paradise. A cult of evil gods-on-earth, known as the Four Seasons, has kidnapped her sister to use in its terrifying new religion. Soon, the streets of Miami erupt in chaos and violence…and Ash gets caught right in the tropical crossfire

Ash isn’t without help, however. Unexpected romance arrives in the form of Wes, an Aztec god of night with his own vendetta against the Four Seasons. As memories of Ash’s previous life begin to flicker into her dreams, the boundaries between ally and enemy, life and death, and love and hate all bleed together. And when a mysterious trickster from her past reappears to derail her new quest, Ash must choose between the echoes of a once-forgotten yesterday and the embers of an uncertain future.

Because when old flames return from the dead, even a volcano goddess can get burned.

My thoughts: Ok, admittedly, I don't think the new cover is as gorgeous as the Wildefire cover. But it really had a lot to live up to! It's very cool, just a bit "photoshoppy" if that makes sense...but it definitely won't stop me from finding out what happens after that killer of a cliffhanger that Wildefire ended on!

What are your thoughts on the cover?


  1. Oh really? I LOVE this cover - I think it's perfect and perfectly resembles the story line! But I agree the flower looks a little unnatural in the hot vulcano see... But other than this I love it :))

    1. I agree, its a totally cool cover! And perfectly goes with the story! :) But there is just something about that flower...

  2. Cool. I wish the flower was more flame colored though.

    1. Or maybe if the flower were made of flame? That would be cool!
