Hidden Gems: Angie Brashear + COVER REVEAL

For the second week of October, I have fantasy author, Angie Brashear's books to spotlight! I was going to do an interview with Angie, but it didn't end up working out. However, I do having something else super special to share ...

... A cover reveal! That's right; a cover reveal for the third and final novel of Angie Brashear's fantasy series! Stay tuned, my friends! ^_^


Introducing ... Angie Brashear

When ANGIE BRASHEAR isn’t working or taking care of her family, she writes. Usually at night after her kids fall asleep. She’s a fan of speculative fiction and an avid runner, both of which perplex her nonfiction-reading, football-loving husband. Saved in her early twenties, Angie is grateful for the Lord’s presence in all aspects of her life. She is originally from Rockland, Maine and currently resides in Cameron, Texas with her husband and three children.

Reasons I Think This Author Is One You Need To Discover:

  • Books are Christian Fantasy
  • Dragons and Unicorns! <3
  • Have to do with Persecution ... a Battle of Good vs. Evil (caution: there is some graphic violence/gruesomeness, so these books are not for everyone)
  • Adventure & Action
  • Imaginative, with a Fairy Tale-ish Aspect



Laila Pennedy awaits death by hanging. For the Rendow Clan rules the Woodlands Region, aiming to slaughter the Faithful. And she deserves to die.

But Lars Landre, the man destined to lead the Faithful out of persecution, has other plans hidden behind his rare and mysterious blue eyes. Rescue.

Following the daring escape, Laila seeks the path of a warrior and vows revenge against the Rendow Clan. She embarks on a dangerous journey with Lars, one in which they endeavor to reach the promised safety of a magical village, to train for battle, and to ultimately assure freedom for those with faith in the Maker.

Clashes of weapons and souls. Brutal loss of lives. Unrequited love. How in all the Woodlands will Laila survive?

Laila Pennedy is a warrior, no longer insecure and weak.

She’s confident the Faithful will overpower the Rendow Clan. Besides, Lars Landre, the Chosen of the Woodlands Region and her betrothed, cannot be defeated. She believes this with all her heart … until tragedy collides with conviction.

In the wake of disaster, the Kinhood threatens to capture Laila, yet offers mercy until autumn’s third full moon if she abides by their commands. But she’s set on revenge. And this time, she won’t be deterred.

This time … she’s the hunter, not the hunted.

Unexpected loss. Compelling wrath. Bygone faith. How in all the Woodlands will Laila survive?

And now for the cover reveal of Of the Redeemed {Legends of the Woodlands #3} ...

Laila Pennedy is a leader. And live or die, she’s determined to guide the Faithful to victory.

Though leagues apart from Lars Landre, the Chosen and her betrothed, Laila is on a journey to cure the blood glugger infection unleashed by the Rendow Clan. Despite the magical gifts bestowed upon her efforts, she cannot prevent her traveling companions from plummeting into a mysterious cavern.

As she embarks on a treacherous underground rescue mission, the quest to eliminate evil lures her deep into the enemy’s hidden tunnels where she confronts an unexpected foe, and then to the sky where she clashes with the darkest of souls.

The final battle between the Faithful and the Clan has begun …

Astonishing wickedness. Tormenting heartbreak. Unexpected sacrifice. How in all the Woodlands will Laila survive?

Expected Publication: December 1st, 2016
