Filip Magnus

Filip picked up his first fantasy novel when he was seven and hasn’t stopped reading since. A critical reader who judges novels on their technical use of language and plot alike, he has a soft spot for literary fiction and tragic, heroic tales.

In his free time, Filip writes fiction, makes gaming reviews on YouTube, and maintains a personal blog. All that when he’s not too busy going through piles of books in as short a time as possible.

COVER REVEAL: The Lessons Never Learned by Rob J. Hayes 27, Feb

Hey, everyone! On behalf of the Booknest.eu team, I am pleased to reveal the cover to Rob J. Hayes' The Lessons Never Learned, Book Two of The War Eternal series! The cover art is by the ludicrously talented Felix Ortiz and the typography is by Shawn King! 

As Book One, Along the Razor's Edge, has yet to be released, Rob has chosen to keep the synopsis for this second part of Eskara Helsene's journey under wraps. Instead, take a look at the synopsis for the opening of the trilogy, releasing March 30:

No one escapes the Pit.

At just fifteen Eskara Helsene fought in the greatest war mankind has ever known. Fought and lost. There is only one place her enemies would send a Sourcerer as powerful as her, the Pit, a prison sunk so deep into the earth the sun is a distant memory. Now she finds herself stripped of her magic; a young girl surrounded by thieves, murderers, and worse. In order to survive she will need to find new allies, play the inmates against each other, and find a way out. Her enemies will soon find Eskara is not so easily broken.
 

If this has caught your attention, I've an extra treat for you: my review of Along the Razor's Edge!  I can't recommend this one enough, folks!
