Book 3 of the Opal Charm series by Miri Castor is on its way, and I am thrilled to be able to share the full cover for Melody of Astronomical Dusk with all of you!
I have read and loved all of the books in the series so far. It’s an upper middle grade / lower young adult contemporary fantasy series featuring a queer Black girl main character and all of her semi-magical friends and family. It’s absolutely wonderful.
Melody of Astronomical Dusk comes out on April 2, 2021 and I cannot wait!
Opal Charm is in desperate need of a vacation. A trip to her grandmother’s place in the sunny town of Marisol offers tranquility and distance from the chaotic events in Dewdrop. But Marisol brings a whole new set of mysteries about Opal’s family, including the original Twilight wielder Philomenos. Meanwhile, Samael’s influence grows quickly across the alternate world Athre. Lies, secrets, and heartache spread with Samael’s power, threatening to sever Opal’s ties with JAEL and family once and for all. With her Twilight and family bonds, Opal must stop those trapped under Samael’s control from a self-destructing madness that can destroy both her worlds.
This beautiful cover was designed by Piere d’Arterie, and I have to say, I’m in love with it. It fits so well with the rest of the series and makes them all look so, so powerful.
