The Worth of a King Cover Reveal

Kendra's next book, The Worth of a King will be coming out SOON! And today I have the great pleasure of sharing the brand-new, never-before-seen, gorgeous cover. Lemme tell you, folks... you're gonna love this one. 

But first: all ze details. 

About the Book
Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.

Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.

Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.

The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.


And now, for ze big reveal:

I think I've been following this story on Kendra's blog and Pinterest page for a while now. Ever since she first posted about it, my brain's been going nuts wanting to get my hands on a copy. 

The Worth of a King will be released on August 27th, but if you simply can't wait that long to get another taste of it, check out the link below. 

And Kendra also sent me some special things that I now have the privilege to share with all of you. 

This is a picture of Delaney and Adrian (via Pinterest). While Kendra lamented that this scene doesn't actually happen in the book, she and Jack had quite a smashing conversation that resulted from the image. 

AND... a juicy snippet

“There’s no time like the present,” said Father. “In my opinion, we should have told him years ago. Celeste, can you get the letter?”

“Yes, yes, of course,” said Mother, distractedly.

“But right now?” Jerolin repeated, voice rising. “He’s still asleep!”

“It’s nearly noon,” Father replied. “It’s high time the boy woke up. We can give him cake to soften the blow.”

Jerolin snorted. “Like cake will make up for finding out that his entire life has been a lie.”


This book is making a grand tour of lots of fabulous blogs today, so let me encourage you to visit around and check out more fun posts! Who knows? There may be more special secrets to discover to whet your appetite even more.

  1. Yeah, Cake doesn't really soften that blow!

  2. Cake makes up for a lot of things, though. Not as many as pie, or strawberry rhubarb cobbler with vanilla ice cream, but y'know.

  3. “Like cake will make up for finding out that his entire life has been a lie.”

    I feel like I’m going to like this character. 😇

  4. The book sounds very interesting, and what a beautiful cover! Congrats to Kendra for another book released!

  5. Huh, I could've sworn I'd commented here . . .

    Anyway. Regarding the snippet: cake does make up for many things. At the very least, it helps.

    And regarding the cover: still awesome.
