I’m so pleased to share the cover for AS SHE ASCENDS, the second book in the Fallen Isles trilogy! The cover for BEFORE SHE IGNITES is so pretty, I didn’t think there was any way to escalate the beauty and fierceness of it. But the incredible art department at HarperCollins managed somehow! (Probably sorcery.)
If I tried to list everything I loved about this cover, we’d be here all day, so let me draw your attention to just a few details:
- The crystal in Mira’s hand is, yes, a noorestone! (Okay, it’s a quartz with photoshop magic.) Noorestones and Mira’s connection with them are very important in this book!
- I honestly didn’t think they would, but the art department created a scar to photoshop onto Mira’s cheek. Now, Mira is not only the most beautiful human in existence, it’s also clear that she’s Been Through Some Life and now she’s ready to seize her power and save the world. She looks like a fierce dragon goddess.
- The dragon tail seems to be tightening around her. Could that be symbolic of Mira’s connection with dragons? It might be!
- I will never stop loving the sister moons.
Mira, the Hopebearer
Mira Minkoba is on the run with her friends after a fiery escape from the Pit, where she’d been imprisoned for defending the dragons she loves. And she wants answers. Where have all the dragons been taken? Why are powerful noorestones being shipped to the mainland? And did the treaty she’s been defending her whole life truly sell out the Fallen Isles to their enemies?
Mira, the Dragonhearted
As her connection to the dragons—and their power—grows stronger, so does Mira’s fear that she might lose control and hurt someone she loves. But the only way to find the truth is to go home again, to Damina, to face the people who betrayed her and the parents she’s not sure she can trust.
Home, where she must rise above her fears. Or be consumed.
The second page-turning novel in Jodi Meadows’ Fallen Isles trilogy scorches with mysterious magic and riveting romance as one girl kindles a spark into a flame.
AS SHE ASCENDS doesn’t come out until September 11, but it is available for preorder now!

Like always, I will be doing a preorder giveaway for this book, so make sure you save your receipt.
There will also be a special preorder gift if you buy the book from my friends at One More Page Books in Arlington, VA. And since this is the only stop I’m (currently) planning to make for this book, and I know I have many readers outside the US who like to order signed copies, I persuaded them to make an exception to their usual policy of no international shipping. (Okay, I promised to go to the post office with them. THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU GUYS.)
So, if you want the special thing from One More Page, here are your links.
And that’s all for now! But before I go, for those of you who (like me) love to see covers next to each other . . .
