The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams - Cover - April 26, 2011

Sandy Williams' debut The Shadow Reader (The Shadow Reader 1) will be published in October 2011 by Ace. Sandy revealed the cover today. I really like the expression on McKenzie Lewis's face.

Some humans can see the fae. McKenzie Lewis can track them, reading the shadows they leave behind. But some shadows lead to danger. Others lead to lies.

A Houston college student trying to finish her degree, McKenzie has been working for the fae king for years, tracking vicious rebels who would claim the Realm. Her job isn’t her only secret. For just as long, she’s been in love with Kyol, the king’s sword-master—and relationships between humans and fae are forbidden.

But any hope for a normal life is shattered when she’s captured by Aren, the fierce and uncompromising rebel leader. He teaches her the forbidden fae language and tells her dark truths about the Court, all to persuade her to turn against the king. Time is running out, and as the fight starts to claim human lives, McKenzie has no choice but to decide once and for all whom to trust and where she ultimately stands in the face of a cataclysmic civil war.

Sandy will be stopping by The Qwillery later this year for a 2011 Debut Author Challenge interview. What do you think of the cover?


  1. I think there is no way she is gonna get back out of those jeans. Nope.

  2. I'm thinking - what I wouldn't give to have a backside like that! *sigh*

    The book on the other hand sounds wicked!

  3. I just love your blog. I check out every post, and usually get your recommendations when I can afford them that is...*S*

    I really like the cover.
    Just from the side view the image of her face kind of reminds me of an actress in a 2 of her movies. Especially as she is looking over her shoulder with her arm stretched behind her to grasp her sword. She is married to Ben Affleck.
    Jennifer Gardner.She is in "Daredevil" with her hubby. And repeats the role in "Electra".

    And yes I would love to have that shape especially at my age...LOL

    Thank you!
