Cover Reveal for THE HELM OF MIDNIGHT

A legendary serial killer stalks the streets of a fantastical city in The Helm of Midnight, the stunning first novel in a new trilogy from acclaimed author Marina Lostetter.

In a daring and deadly heist, thieves have made away with an artifact of terrible power – the death mask of Louis Charbon. Made by a master craftsman, it is imbued with the spirit of a monster from history, a serial murderer who terrorized the city, leaving a trail of gruesome corpses.

Now Charbon is loose once more, killing from beyond the grave. But these murders are different from before, not simply random but the work of a deliberate mind probing for answers to a sinister question.

It is up to Krona Hirvath and her fellow Regulators to enter the mind of madness to stop this insatiable killer while facing the terrible truths left in his wake.

THE HELM OF MIDNIGHT is the first in the Five Penalties trilogy. Book drops April 13th 2021, and is available for pre-order now! (Click for links to Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, and direct from MacMillan.)

Happy reading!

From the Publishers Marketplace announcement:

Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Author of NOUMENON Marina J. Lostetter’s THE MASKS OF ARKENSYRE, in which an enchanted death mask of a mass murderer is stolen, unleashing his reign of terror on the city once more, to Devi Pillai at Tor, with Will Hinton editing, in a three-book deal, for publication in 2020, by DongWon Song at Howard Morhaim Literary Agency (world English).

This series began as my award-winning story ‘Master Belladino’s Mask’ and grew into a rich world full of enchanted objects, stained glass, monsters, and mystery.

If you’d like a peek at my once-secret Pinterest board to get a feel for Lutador, the first City-State we visit in the world of Arkensyre, click here!

I can’t wait to share this story and this world with you all!  Happy reading!

~Marina

P.S. Once again, Big THANK YOU to everyone who worked on this deal, and especially my agent DongWon Song, who guided me through the process and got this book in front of the right people.
