Illustrated covers always have a specific pull for me, tempting me to buy it just for the cover. And whenever I see a cover for Vaela and Micah’s books, that pull becomes a black hole. Their covers are among the most imaginative, bright, and beautiful covers I know. So I’m delighted to share their cover for Trap Your Lovers, a fantasy adventure with polyamorous romance. If you like queer fantasy and haven’t read any of Vaela and Micah’s books yet, what are you waiting for? You’re seriously missing out. Don’t forget to check their previous books (and covers!!).
Trap Your Lovers
Genre: Fantasy adventure with romantic elements
Cover Designer: Eri Speritas
Release date: 31 January 2024
Perilous quests give rise to heroes. And broken songs call for Chosen Ones to be mended.
Roderick and Keeva, once friends, now orphaned by a dragon’s wrath that fractured the harmony between the great clans, spend their days locked in battle… until they are reunited, realizing that they’re both dating the same guy: Mateo, whose overdue transformation into a dragon is complicated by feelings of self doubt after the disastrous attempt to broker peace.
Choosing to get along is one thing, but forgiving one another—or themselves—for the hurt they’ve inflicted is another. Keeva keeps seeing the face of her dead best friend in her dreams, and Roderick’s suspicion and distrust keep him up at night. Soon, though, a great threat unites them against a common foe.
Someone has stolen a song from the gods, disrupting the tenuously rebuilt harmony of their homeland, and the very beast that tore them apart threatens to be set loose. True heroes of Koor Kosma are required to serve as vessels for the other four godly songs and reforge the divine harmony.
Neither Roderick nor Keeva are such heroes, but unless they can unite the divine and broken songs, unless harmony brings the shattered clans together, all will burn.
They are not chosen.
They are not the heroes of this story.
They are broken.
And they must be forgiven.
The Broken Song Duology is a story about queer grief, trauma, forgiveness and finding your place in the world.
