Cover Reveal: Pierced by Silver, by Anca Antoci

8 Feb 2024

Welcome to a new cover reveal!

Today we have the pleasure of help reveal the cover of Pierced by Silver, the second book on the Paranormal Misadventures series, written by Anca Antoci.

Let's take a look at the blurb firstly:

Where the boundaries blur between the living and the dead, the line between hero and monster is thin. 

Deep in the heart of Transylvania, nestled amidst ancient forests and shrouded in centuries-old superstitions, lies the village of Vânători. A string of gruesome murders has left the villagers terrified, and the authorities baffled. Joining forces are Ella Martin, a witch with a hidden past, Felix Goia, a brilliant but haunted police inspector, and Radu Lupu, a mysterious police captain whose supernatural nature has the potential to unravel everything.

As the bodies pile up and the villagers’ fear turns to rage, Ella, Felix, and Radu find themselves caught in a race against time. The locals suspect one of their own to be a strigoi—a relentless force that hungers for blood. They must uncover the truth behind the killings, whether it’s a human monster or a strigoi, before the village is consumed by darkness.

However, their investigation takes a perilous twist when Radu, as a vârcolac, becomes the target of an unrelenting predator armed with silver tipped arrows. With their strongest ally out of commission, Ella and Felix must hurry to save him and stop the killings before Vânători becomes a ghost town.

Based on Romanian folklore and mythology, the story follows the events of Midsummer Night's Curse, but can also be read as a standalone. Each book in this series features a new mystery that will be solved by the end of the story, but the dynamics between the characters may change and evolve, so I recommend that you read the books in order. 

Talking about the important details, the book can be currently preordered on Amazon, and can be added to Goodreads in preparation for its release the 21st March, 2024.

Time for the cover, a cover full of symbolism around the series!
