Have we got a treat for you today! We’re so excited to bring you a cover reveal for Dark Water Daughter by H.M. Long which will be released on 11th July 2023 from Titan Books.


Before we show you the cover in its full glory, here’s the synopsis: 


A stormsinger and pirate hunter join forces against a deathless pirate lord in this swashbuckling Jacobean adventure on the high-seas, full of magic, betrayal, redemption and fearsome women, for readers of Adrienne Young, R. J. Barker and Naomi Novik.


Mary Firth is a Stormsinger: a woman whose voice can still hurricanes and shatter armadas. Faced with servitude to pirate lord Silvanus Lirr, Mary offers her skills to his arch-rival in exchange for protection – and, more importantly, his help sending Lirr to a watery grave. But her new ally has a vendetta of his own, and Mary’s dreams are dark and full of ghistings, spectral creatures who inhabit the ancient forests of her homeland and the figureheads of ships.


Samuel Rosser is a disgraced naval officer serving aboard The Hart, an infamous privateer commissioned to bring Lirr to justice. He will stop at nothing to capture Lirr, restore his good name and reclaim the only thing that stands between himself and madness: a talisman stolen by Mary.


Finally, driven into the eternal ice at the limits of their world, Mary and Samuel must choose their loyalties and battle forces older and more powerful than the pirates who would make them slaves.


Come sail the Winter Sea, for action-packed, high-stakes adventures, rich characterisation and epic plots full of intrigue and betrayal.


How awesome does that sound?! Well then me mateys without further ado here’s the cover!

Shiver me timbers (Ok I’ll stop now!), that is one gorgeous looking cover art!

Let’s hear what H.M. Long has to say about it:


I’m so thrilled to share this book with the world, and this beautiful cover created by Julia Lloyd! I love the details Julia has slipped in here – particularly the hammer which you’ll see crossed with the sword. This has a key role in the story, and I love that Julia highlighted it like this.


Dark Water Daughter has a special place in my heart. Inside this book is a seed of a story I’ve carried with me since childhood, but until Mary, Samuel and Lirr came into being, it simply didn’t have the right soil. Finally bringing this book to life has been a joy, and I hope that readers will love Dark Water Daughter (and the world of The Winter Sea) just as much as I do!
