Cover Reveal: Emperor

When an experimental starship test goes horribly wrong, a scientist from Earth finds herself fighting for her survival, and her only lifeline is a wild, powerful alien king.

Squee, I am crazy excited to share the cover for the second Galactic Kings adventure. In Overlord, starship pilot Mal found herself facing off with Overlord Rhain Zhalto Sarkany.

Now, in Emperor, scientist Dr. Poppy Ellison wakes to find herself changing into something else, and only one man makes any sense in the chaos: big, wild Emperor Brodin Damar Sarkany.

Galactic Kings is chock-full of:

  • Tough, smart heroines
  • Powerful, alien warrior kings
  • Action-packed fight scenes
  • Sexy romance
  • Some fierce new alien worlds

Here it is! The cover for the second book, EMPEROR, and Brodin in all his big, muscular glory.

There is also a giveaway to celebrate the cover reveal (signed Overlord paperbacks) so scroll down to enter.

Emperor
Galactic Kings #2
Release date: 18th January 2022

Cover artist Amalia Chitulescu has outdone herself again!

When an experimental starship test goes horribly wrong, a scientist from Earth finds herself fighting for her survival, and her only lifeline is a wild, powerful alien king.

Waking on an alien world, wracked by pain, Dr. Poppy Ellison is confused and adrift…until his voice calls to her in the darkness. The big, wild, enthralling man reveals that she’s been infected and is turning into an alien shapeshifter. Poppy has always been smart, practical, and boring, but with her entire life turned upside down, there is no one she can trust…except for this alien wolf.

Emperor Brodin Damar Sarkany is king of Damar and its shapeshifters. As wild as the forest city they call home, the Damari can be volatile, always fighting to control the wolf inside. Brodin uses his immense strength to keep his people in check and protect them from the most dangerous evil of all—his war-mongering father. He can’t afford the distraction of a small, tantalizing woman from Earth, even when everything about Poppy sings to the instincts of both man and wolf.

As his father’s ruthless warlord attacks, innocent children are at risk, and Poppy knows she has to help by mastering her new, emerging abilities. She must also face the shocking passion that explodes between her and Brodin. But as Poppy and Brodin hunt down the enemy, they uncover a plot that could mean the destruction of all the Damari…if they don’t stop it in time.

Everything you need to know about Emperor:

  • Release date: Ebook and paperback will be out on the 18th January 2022
  • Pre-order: There will be a short pre-order which should be live on Friday the 14th of January
  • Audio: It is going into audio production on release day with Vivienne Leheny and Stephen Dexter, so I expect it will release about two months later, around mid-April.
  • Next book: Yes, there are more Galactic Kings books coming!
  • How many books are planned for the series? I never know, as things change as I write, but at this stage I am thinking four or five.
  • Links to other series: Galactic Kings is set in the same universe as Galactic Gladiators and House of Rone. You do NOT need to have read the previous series. Galactic Kings is set on different planets with different characters, but expect a few cameos from the gladiators!

  1. I can’t wait. I mean seriously. Can’t.

    Just happy Emperor will be in my grubby litlle hands shortly.

    THANK YOU !!!!!!

  2. As I am usually reading on my kindle, there is not much color to the covers I see. But as I started Overlord yesterday (because I had to finish another book first, and I wanted to wait so I didn’t have such big gap between the first two books) I was like woah, that cover looks nice in black ‘n white, wonder what it looks like in color. And then today your mail arrived with the Emperor Cover Reveal! I really love it and I am sooo looking forward to reading it!

  3. I am so excited about this upcoming release. I found you on Audible, listened to as many as I could, then went and bought the complete series. I still have Hell Squad to read but I will!
    Thank you for the opportunity.

  4. Such a gorgeous cover!!! I didn’t think you could top Overlord but dang… it’s a toss up at this point! I can’t wait to read Emperor!!

  5. The cover is amazing. I’m so excited to read the second book. I’m also excited to see a new book coming out each month. I LOVE reading your books!

  6. OMG – your covers are awesome, as are the books. I just love your imagination and can’t even begin to wonder where your inspiration comes from for all these futuristic books. You are truly amazing, Anna! Keep ’em coming!

  7. OMG! This cover art is beautifully amazing. The artist who creates your covers really does know how to get a girls attention. I just started reading Galactic Gladiators and cannot wait to get this series.

  8. Oh my goodness, another wonderful piece of man art, loving his looks nice job by your cover artist as usual you never disappoint

  9. Beautiful cover. I can not wait until it is out and I can read it. Your books are ones I always read. I hope you have a great 2022

  10. LaChelle Goulette

    I just love your books so much. This new spin off is excellent! Can’t wait to read this and the covers are absolutely stunning! Thank you for all your great books!

  11. Brodin looks like a wild, well weathered beast indeed, probably not the kind of man the Poppy we met in Overlord would have believed she’d would be her man. But I don’t think she’s going to ne that woman anymore. I can’t wait to see Poppy come into her own and meet the wolf she becomes. But I especially want to see Brodin fall hopelessly in love with her,

  12. Oh my gosh. I love, love, love this cover!
    He totally works for the Emperor; big, brawny, with braided locks. Yup. Totally rocks.

  13. Carrie McConnell

    I don’t usually notice or pay much attention to the weapons, but, the war ax is totally awesome! Also I like the mature look of the hero.

  14. Hi Anna Gorgeous Hot cover – enticing tease. I am elated that you are doing a shifter story and love that it is a wolf-shifter; wolf is my spirit animal. A shapeshifter story in space is awesome. Looking forward to reading this story.

  15. I have no words…. I’m shocking on how hot this cover is. Bulging back,from his veiny muscles, to hair braids. Melts my butter.

  16. Hi! I was just going to buy your Phoenix brother series on Amazon and I couldn’t find them anywhere! Are they permanently taken down?

    1. Jess, the Phoenix Adventures books are getting a revamp. They’ll be back soon. No exact date yet, but stay tuned!
