Presenting the cover of book two from the Summer King Chronicles!

Skyfire, by Jess Owen!
Continue along with Shard, the gryfon (gryphon/griffin/griffon) as he continues to seek his destiny as the Summer King. If you like gryfons, wolves, sentient/sapient animals, and a lush fantasy nature-based world, you might get a real kick out of these stories. The first three chapters of the first book are linked to, for free, in the url below. :)

The kickstarter funding this second book is now over, sadly, but you can still check out some of the cool stuff that happened:…

Both the Hardcover and Kindle version are available:
This is the second book in the series, so don't forget to check out "The Song of the Summer King" as well!…

The Author's website:

This was painted as a wrap-around dust jacket, so the section with the tree will be a back flap, the owl will be on the back cover, Shard the gryfon on the front, and the rest of the rocks will be the front flap. Hence the long format!

Painted in Corel Painter, using the oil pastel and acrylic brushes.

Edit: Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! It is an honor!

The owl is just so unimpressed. "Oh, you crated fire? Well how does that help me catch field mice now?"
