Rejoice! It’s new cover time, and today we have an absolute beauty for you.

You might remember last year’s brilliant portal fantasy An Accident of Stars by Foz Meadows, described as “the portal fantasy I’ve spent my whole life waiting for” by Tor’s Liz Bourke. Now we’re showing off the cover – created by Hugo Award-winning artist Julie Dillon – for the amazing sequel, A Tyranny of Queens.

But first, here’s the synopsis:

Saffron Coulter is back on Earth, but even so, nothing is easy. Struggling with the victimising expectations of her friends and family and threatened with a stay in psychiatric care, Saffron has to make a choice: to forget about Kena and fit back into the life she’s outgrown, or pit herself against everything she’s ever known and everyone she loves.

Meanwhile in Kena, Gwen is increasingly troubled by Leoden’s absence and his plans for the captive worldwalkers, while Yena, still in Veksh, must confront the deposed Kadeja. What is their endgame? Who can they trust? And what happens when Leoden returns?

For the full cover, plus exclusive interview with both Foz and Angry Robot author Keith Yatsuhashi, author of Kojiki and forthcoming title Kokoro, click on the teaser image below.
