‘The Return of the Whalefleet’ cover reveal and Kickstarter announcement!

I’m thrilled to reveal the cover to the up-and-coming second Darkstar novel. The Return of the Whalefleet will be released later in 2021, and will be a cornerstone of a special Kickstarter campaign to publish the Darkstar novels as hardback editions – the Kickstarter will go live later this month. I’ve been blessed with Jenny Zemanek’s design work on all of my covers, but Whalefleet’s is my favourite so far – she perfectly captured the otherworldliness of the Darkstar Dimension.

Here is the current version of the book description:

Is the price for survival worth paying?

Through quick thinking, calm resolve, and just sheer guts, First Officer Choi Minjung has helped her crew survive their first months lost within the improbable Darkstar Dimension, avoiding disasters in the form of parasitic magical items, amorphous oozes that pursue their ship over the waves, and hungry horizon-spanning dragons.

However, Min’s crew are not the only beings stranded in the Darkstar Dimension.

When the peaceful Whalefleet – a race of dimensional travellers who sail across the night sky on the backs of massive, luminous creatures – are attacked, Min and her crew race to their aid, but in doing so draw the attention of a faceless, ancient foe that may hold the secrets to this land.

Min faces a choice: stand down and keep her people safe while the innocent Whalefleet suffers, or confront an impossible foe, risking all she has sworn to protect.

The Return of the Whalefleet is the second novel in the Darkstar series, an action-packed fantasy adventure set in a wonderfully strange and dangerous world.
