Cover Reveal: Surrender’s Strength by Erika Mathews!

Friends, a gorgeous cover for the second book in a clean Christian kingdom adventure series is being revealed today! Surrender’s Strength (Truth from Taerna #3) by Erika Mathews is now available for preorder in EBOOK and SIGNED PAPERBACK! It will be released on July 19, 2021!


Her only ambition is keeping her old familiar identity. 

But she isn’t given that choice.

Ever since her mother’s death, all Laelara wants is to keep doing what she’s good at: managing the household. She definitely isn’t interested in higher education. When she’s sent to the city to further her schooling, Laelara finds herself caught up in a case of mistaken identity that seems like the perfect opportunity to avoid the despised Academy. Amid the whirlwind of new friends, new jobs, and the glitzy social life of the Palace District—particularly the trivia contests—her double life becomes more and more precarious. For the first time in her twenty years, everything spirals out of her careful control: her family’s security, her job, her friendships, and her very identity. With her lifelong purpose and identity stripped away, to what will Laelara surrender, and where will she find the strength to persevere?

  1. It seems like just yesterday I was enjoying the cover reveal to “Victory’s Voice.” How time flies! *sigh*
    All of the Truth From Taerna books have such lovely covers! I started reading “Promise’s Prayer” and I’m looking forward to reading the other books as well. 🙂
