She also just so happens to have one of the best artists in the business painting her covers. Dan Dos Santos has done numerous pieces of fantasy artwork during his career, always bringing a warm beauty to his work. Patricia has said numerous times how lucky she is to have such a talented artist working in her Mercy Thompson universe and I couldn’t agree more.
Her forthcoming new book, Night Broken, has another Dan Dos Santos cover. He has turned in another stunner!
But first, here is a bit more about Night Broken
#1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything she’s ever known.
An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.
Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.
Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s ex is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.
For the new cover, Dan Dos Santos created a few preliminary ideas. Art director Irene Gallo, who knows Dan quite well, has uploaded a Tor.com post featuring those ideas and how Dan finished the piece of artwork! You can click HERE to see the progression!
Night Broken by Patricia Briggs will be in bookstores March 2014!
Get ready for an unwanted guest!
