The Worth of a King: Cover Reveal

  Hey all, I am appearing once again, this time to bring you the cover reveal for Kendra E. Ardnek's Worth of a King.

This book will be released on August 27th, and I'm very much looking forward to reading it! 

Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.
Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.
Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.
The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.

And here a snippet from the book.

One evening when Adrian was, as usual, in the library hoping for a chance to meet with his sister, he heard giggling.
This wasn’t terribly unusual. The library was popular for stolen trysts between lovers. Yet Adrian was bored and the couple wasn’t being quiet, so he unconsciously wandered towards the giggling.
As he expected, he found a young couple just a few shelves down. They appeared to be about Adrian’s age, and both wore expensive clothing. He also wore a number of finely-crafted weapons, and she an array of jewelry that didn’t strictly go together. He was whispering in her ear, hands trailing through her long, frizzy, brown hair. Apparently, he was being very amusing for she was the one giggling.
Adrian was going to back away and leave them to it, but her head shot up and her amber eyes locked with his. All mirth instantly vanished, and her lover even removed his hands and backed away.
There was no guilt in either of them, however, as Adrian was accustomed to seeing in the couples that he had previously caught.

And here is a Pinterest Inspiration picture.

Showing her something that was always special to him as a child?
 So, yes, this scene happened. Ended up being a turning point in Adrian and Obsidia's relationship.

And now, I need to go eat breakfast.  See y'all later!


  1. Oh, this looks interesting. Is it a standalone or a part of series?

    1. Ish. That couple in the snippet? That's Granite and Amber before she went evil. But it's not an official pat of the series.

    2. It's a standalone, but characters from Rizkaland do show up.

    3. Very neat. I love standalones best. Hey, I tagged you in my last post ;)

  2. The snippet! YASSSSS. I know exactly what it means and it makes me happy.
    (And the cover is lovely too, but I've said that, like, five times already, so . . .)

  3. I love that snippet and the description of the couple! The more I read, the more interested I am in this book. :)
