Cover Spotlight: Con and Conjure

My name is Raine Benares. I’m a seeker who finds lost things and missing people. My relatives, on the other hand, steal things. They’re the most notorious criminal family in the seven kingdoms. Sometimes I wonder if they have the right idea, especially since what I’ve found lately is likely to get me killed. And the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone that has given me unlimited power, is to blame for every last bit of it.

Ever since the Saghred bonded to me, the goblin king and the elven power brokers have wanted to possess its magic themselves. But to get it, they’ll have to get me, and their pockets are deep enough to make that happen. With the help of my highly qualified family, I’ve rigged the perfect con—one that will financially ruin the elves who are spoiling for war. My family’s run elaborate scams before, but none involving this much money, government officials this highly ranked, or a war this close to starting. In our way is a goblin thief who’s after the Saghred, and my ex-fiancé—an elven assassin who may be after me. I broke up with him. Let’s just say it could have gone better.

If either the goblins or the elves get their hands on the Saghred, they have every intention of using it. Which means total annihilation will be inevitable…

I’ve been slowly gathering covers for another wild cover adventure/romp, but when I saw this one via the author’s twitter feed earlier today, I knew I had to single it out.

Oh, Riane Benares series, I love you. But you already knew that.

Signed, Me, Your Uber Bestest Fan.

P.S. Love the new model! Not that the other one wasn’t great, but the switch isn’t jarring. Win.

This is book five in the series and it releases March 29, 2011.

  1. I’ve heard lots of good things about this series, and I like fantasy, but I’ve never picked it up….weird.

    Oh, I do like the cover :)

  2. I can hardly wait. And I blame you for that entirely. I bought the first book because I finally caved after one of your posts when I went ‘that looks interesting’ and had some money. It sat on my shelf for a week or two and when I read it I finished it in a day –and then went the next day and bought the next three at the bookstore and proceeded to devour them the following Saturday/Sunday.

    All your fault. But I think I love you for it. The only bad part about this post is: MARCH?! D=>

    • Well you’ll be glad this series has a few more in it now, then. It’s the type I could devour the next book right away. ;)
