Cover reveal: THE IRON KNIGHT

So, here it is.

The cover of the fourth book in The Iron Fey series. Ash's story, The Iron Knight.

But, before I reveal the awesome, gorgeous, fabulous cover, I have more exciting news to share with you.








Summer's Crossing, a free e-novella told from Puck's point of view, is available today as well, and you can get it at Harlequin's ebook store here.

And now, on to the main event.

Scroll down for lovely cover goodness.







Keep going...













Almost there... (Hey, I'm an author, I have to tease, it's in the contract.)


















Ta daaaaaaa:



































SIGH. Isn't it gob-smacking awesome? I love it, it's my absolute favorite so far. Oh, but we're still not done. Harlequin TEEN and I want to invite everyone to a live online event on June 15th, where we'll reveal the back cover copy of Iron Knight, and answer your burning questions about the series. (But there will be no spoilers.) So mark your calendars for that, and I'll post details later!

Thanks so much for waiting, everyone! Hope you love it as much as I do!

Julie

  25. I love both of those covers! Actually, the whole series has one of the best designs ever. The model for Ash looks nothing like I imagined him. But. He's still pretty hot. :D No complaints here.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I can't wait to read this. TEAM ASH!! Love the cover :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's gorgeous! :D I already downloaded Summer's Crossing late last night...or I guess early this morning, and I'm excited to start it! :D

    I absolutely love The Iron Knight cover though! It's fantastic! I love how it matches the rest of the series, and the blue and Ash! Eeek! I'm having trouble putting how much I love it into sentences, I love it THAT much! :D Thanks for sharing the cover with us, Julie! And thanks for the chance to get to read Summer's Crossing for Free for a little while, Harlequin Teen is pretty awesome too for spoiling us like this! :D haha

    Hope you have an awesome day, which I'm sure you will because it's Ash filled now, and I can't wait to see the back cover too! :D

  34. Love the cover, esp. his icy blue eyes! Team ASH! but love Puck to , he is so funny. Really love them together! The only thing that would make it better is I wish his hair looked a little messy and cool, but other than that love it! Cant wait to read Ash's perspective! eeeeeeekkkkkkkk.........

    ReplyDelete
  35. YAY!!! I guess I'll have to pick a team soon...maybe after Iron Queen...!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. AHHHH! So awesome! It's by far the best cover yet :)I can't wait to hear Ash's story I just love him he's my fav character. Even though I always pictured Ash with blond hair and blue eyes looking at him on the cover I am starting to like him with blck hair and blue eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Puck must be furious with Ash, with him taking all his attention and so! :o

    I love the cover, it's totally freaking gorgeous!

  42. I literally can barely breathe. I saved this post for last, out of all the ones on my Blogger Reading List. I'm obsessed, Julie! I HEART it so much!
    He looks a bit young, and I thought Ash had silver eyes, but I'm melting a bit.

  43. PS: Julie, I commend you and your cover designer. You almost made me think about possibly converting me to Team Ash. Almost.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh god, I have been waiting all day for this! I was going to check this morning(again) and totally forgot! But it was worth the wait. ^_^ for one, TEAM ASH ALL THE WAY! Two, I just love that color blue, I reeeeally do. three, that's not exactly how I pictured Ash(I was thinking a bit more longer hair) but this also seems to be ash. and his eyes are to die for! Now, I must be off to read Summer's Crossing(insert squeal here) so I may subdue my need for the series(for now...)

    Thank you again Julie for the most awesome book series ever!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I want to join the live online event but can I ask the link and time for it? I don't live in the US so the time here would probably be different.

    I love the Iron Fey series! Please never stop writing it. :((

    ReplyDelete
  76. who is the model on the regular covers?

    ReplyDelete
  77. You should do a Puck book--(actually full length)--like--"Summer's Prankster" or something....

    ReplyDelete
  78. Just look at it. Every single one of your covers are just amazing Julie. So great!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I read Summer's Crossing. It was AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  80. OMG june 15 is my birthday :o

    ReplyDelete
  81. OMG He's even cutter then I imagined =D I fell in love with your book last month and I've read all the books that's come out I can't wait for this one to come out. If you ever get enough money from selling you should so try to make some movies out of this book.

    ReplyDelete
  82. oh how cool, love the blue and you releasing it tomorrow well the back

    ReplyDelete
  83. when will the plot be posted!??!!? i'm dying here! love the cover, Ash's model is not who i expected but hes still cute :)
    Puck is dead-on!!

    ReplyDelete
  84. -that is not ASH!!!!! he is suppose to be hot!!! Also if anyone has read the iron fey series the know that winter fey are immune to the cold! so ash would not need the winter coat now would he!? ( you could have at least gave him his winter sword I would have loved to see what it would look like to other people! )

    -Puck on the other hand is a pretty good match except he looks more like the vampire from twilight if you ask me. so really the only puck about him is his smirk and his eyes! ( p.s. the smirk is DEAD ON )

    -over all this cover is not great ( whoever had ash where the winter coat is so WRONG!!! ) but i can cope if the book is as good as the rest of the series

    ReplyDelete
  85. Isn't Ash suppose to have silver eyes, cool blue sword, longer hair, and i would expect his face not so square but other than that, i love the cover <3

    ReplyDelete
  86. Not so much, I expected more hair and sharper features.

    ReplyDelete
  87. there is so much wrong
    1. what about the pointy ears
    2. billowing black cape for ash
    3. megan is too tall and not small enough
    4. silver eyes, green eyes
    5. megan has silver hair not badly dyed yellow
    The covers need redone and author should pick out the models...what about the ears!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. i cant wait to read rhis the other books were great so im wondering what will happen between meghan and ash.he is sooo hot in the cove but i tyhought his eyes were supposed to be silver oh well he still looks gorgeous!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. NICE!!!! i can't wait to read it!

    ReplyDelete
  90. AHHHHH!!! ash is soo beautiful!!! exactly like the book described him

    ReplyDelete
  91. Not how I see him but hey-the guy in the cover is still great looking!!

    ReplyDelete
