Artwork: “Blackwood” by Gwenda Bond (Strange Chemistry)

A bit late, but I only just saw this cover artwork  - for Gwenda Bond’s upcoming novel, Blackwood – for the first time today:


I really like this – atmospheric, “clean gothic”, and the snake’s pretty cool, too. The piece is by Steven Wood. The final cover was revealed today, and is below.

Bond-BlackwoodHere’s the synopsis for the novel:

On Roanoke Island, the legend of the 114 people who mysteriously vanished from the Lost Colony hundreds of years ago is just an outdoor drama for the tourists, a story people tell. But when the island faces the sudden disappearance of 114 people now, an unlikely pair of 17-year-olds may be the only hope of bringing them back.

Miranda, a misfit girl from the island’s most infamous family, and Phillips, an exiled teen criminal who hears the voices of the dead, must dodge everyone from federal agents to long-dead alchemists as they work to uncover the secrets of the new Lost Colony. The one thing they can’t dodge is each other.
