Book Cover Reveal

Oh my gorsh! It's a COVER REVEAL.

Hello Fantasy Book Nerds

Yep! It's a cover reveal for none other that Mr Dan Fitzgerald.

And guess what? The third book in the Maer cycle, The Place Below, will be coming out 4th March 2021.

They say that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but if that is the case, why do we all love a cover? Of course, we love covers and Jessica and Chad Moon over at Shadow Spark Publishing have done a grand job doing the art and design for Dan's new book.

Now, I can hear you thinking..


But I am going to tell you some stuff about Dan Fitzgerald first before we do the reveal. First and foremost, Dan is a thoroughly top bloke (don't tell him I said that!)

Dan Fitzgerald is a fantasy author living in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC with his wife, twin boys, and two cats. When he is not writing, he might be gardening, taking photographs of nature, doing yoga, cooking, or listening to French music. The Maer Cycle is his debut trilogy, with Hollow Road and The Archive on several book bloggers’ best-of lists for 2020, and The Place Below coming March 4 2021. His upcoming duology, The Weirdwater Confluence, will be published in October 2021 and January 2022. All books published by Shadow Spark Publishing.

Find out more about Dan and his books at, or look him up on Twitter or Instagram, under the name danfitzwrites. 

Yes, yes. I know that you are waiting and you are thinking 'are you actually going to show us this cover or what? 

 So without much further ado! Drun roll meastro!


Told you, didn't I?

Cracking job!

So now that I have told you something about Dan, you've seen the cover, let me tell you a little but about the book.........

The Place Below
It’s been twenty-five years since the Battle for the Archive. Peace reigns over the Silver Hills, and humans and Maer are preparing to sign their first trade agreement. Even warring tribes of the Free Maer have set aside old quarrels.

Sasha is a young scholar of mixed Maer and human parentage, traveling throughout the Maer lands collecting stories of the Ka-lar, the buried Forever Kings. She finds a reference in the Archive to a Ka-lar named Kuun, a scholar in life, who was laid down in an ancient brightstone mine, beneath a mountain said to be the home of the fabled Skin Maer. The lure of the tale is too strong to resist. Joined by some old friends, Sasha sets out to uncover secrets that have lain buried for over a thousand years.

In The Place Below, the Maer Cycle comes to a close as the darkest mysteries of the Maer are at last brought into the light.
