As part of the Kickstarter I ran for The Flames of Shadam Khoreh, we met two interior artwork stretch goals, which meant that we’d have two original pieces per book. These will be added to each of the books on the page facing “Part I” or “Part II”. The artist I chose for the project is Evgeni Maloshenkov, the same artist who did the great interior pieces for my short story collection, Lest Our Passage Be Forgotten & Other Stories.
The first of the pieces is now complete and ready to be unveiled. I give you Rehada, ready to kick some ass.
With only very mild spoilers, this is a scene from the second half of Winds where Rehada has gone off with Atiana, both of them disguised as peasants. Rehada is riding back toward Palotza Radiskoye and is waylaid. And what you see above her is her answer to this inconvenience.
