New book new book!

We just got in advance copies of George O’Connor’s latest volume in the Olympians series, Ares: Bringer of War.

This book tells the story of the Trojan War from the perspective of the gods.  Ares and Athena are locked in combat . . . who will win?  Unfortunately, not the Trojans — spoiler alert, they mostly end up dead.

Here’s the book cover.

Ares’ spears are done in foil that’s black and blue.  It’s pretty neat!  (Note: in this book — lots of dead people.  I think the cover makes that pretty clear.)

And here’s the spine!  I love this dark mahogany color.

Here’s the title page — and the giant family tree that shows how all the gods are related to each other.

A spread!  Predictably, war is occurring.  Also, Ares seems to be on fire.

Here’s the back cover of the book — with all the previous covers all tiny and adorable!

We’re doing a trade paperback edition and a paper over board hardcover edition of Ares.  Here they are together!

And here are all the spines of all the books together.  You can see that they’re forming the head of Medusa!


Ares will be in stores in January.  We can’t wait!
