I am very excited to be a part of the cover reveal for Shadow of the Mark by Leigh Fallon. I really enjoyed Carrier of the Mark (review here) and am excited to read Shadow of the Mark when it releases next summer. For today though, I have the cover, the synopsis, some information about Leigh and a giveaway she is hosting to try and hold us over until then. First up is the synopsis.
While she evoked the air element, and her feelings for Adam intensified, a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal has been spun around her. With the Order tightening its hold, and the reinstatement of the Mark Knights, Megan has more questions than answers as the Marked Ones grow in strength.
New people arouse suspicion, the DeRises start behaving strangely, and Megan begins to unravel a destiny shrouded in mystery. It’s a destiny the Order has struggled to hide, and a destiny someone from the past?far in the past, has already laid claim to.
Alliances will be made, and friends will be lost, as the Order?s dark secrets are revealed by the very thing they sought to destroy.

Now for the cover:
So what do you think? I personally think the colors are gorgeous Here are Leigh’s thoughts on the cover.
I know, there’s no mistaking it. This is definitely a Carrier Series cover, but that was the intention. After the amazing reception to the cover of Carrier of the Mark, HarperCollins wanted Shadow’s cover to be instantly recognizable. And it is, but the new darker color palette reflects the darker tone that this installment brings, and the pink and purple really make it pop. I love it and think HarperCollins have done another amazing job. I hope you like it too.
I think it is definitely recognizable as a part of the Carrier of the Mark series and it is a good idea to have the covers related to one another. Here is some information about Leigh and places you can pre-order Shadow of the Mark.
I started out life in South Africa. A year later my parents moved home to Dublin, Ireland. When I was older and realized my parents had moved me from exotic Durban, to sedate Rathfarnham, Dublin 16, I was rightly ticked off.
Giving up lions for sheep, I grew up in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains where I went to a convent school and had to contend with uniforms, gabardines, and nuns. When not dodging the beady glare of the Sisters of Mercy, I was devouring every book I could get my hands on.
I traveled all over Europe while working in banking and treasury, but I gave up my calculator in favor of a keyboard and haven?t stopped writing since. My first book, Carrier of the Mark, was published by HarperTeen in 2011.
Our home is in Cork in the south of Ireland, but we?re currently on loan to Massachusetts in the US where I continue to write books about magic, ghosts,and romance, with a bit of Irish flavor.
