Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday!!! I’m so excited because today I bring you something very special. Esther Dalseno is the author of one of the best books in 2015; Drown. When I interviewed Esther after reading Drown she told me Gabriel and the Swallows was in the works. A few months later she announced it was being published by Oftomes Publishing. This was really exciting because Oftomes Publishing was created by booktuber Benjaminoftomes, and I love his channel. I was honored when Esther passed my name along to Ben to be a part of the Cover Reveal. I listed the blurb for you all below from Goodreads. I hope you all check it out and keep an eye out for the release.
A lonely farm boy.
A girl with swallow’s wings.
An ancient city buried in a volcano.
A mystery old as blood and bone.
There is more to Gabriel than the life he’s ashamed of – the son of peasant winemakers, bullied relentlessly on account of his disabled mother. For Gabriel has a secret: the elaborate dream world he descends into at night – a grandiose, vivid existence – is becoming more real than his waking life.
Everything changes for Gabriel when he rescues a wounded creature – a miraculous girl with swallow’s wings – from the voracious pursuit of Alfio Gallo, a dangerous old enemy. Aided by the beautiful and mysterious Orlando Khan, Gabriel is conflicted by unanswered questions: who is the Dark One that dwells in the medieval tunnels beneath their city? Is he just a figment of Gabriel’s powerful imagination? And is the foundling really who she says she is?
Wrestling with manhood whilst beckoned by ancient rites and foreign lands, Gabriel is about to make a deadly decision that changes the course of life as he knows it…as long as he can decide which reality he’s in.
Now I give to you the cover for Esther Dalseno new book Gabriel and the Swallows
Congratulations Esther on today’s Cover Reveal and the future release of Gabriel and the Swallows. I can’t wait to read it.
