Jackdaw: Valentine’s Day. The Graphic Novel.
My new book Jackdaw releases on 17 February. And I have the mother of all teasers for you.
“Jackdaw: Valentine’s Day” is a Jackdaw prequel, drawn by the magnificently talented artist Mila May. It features our heroes Ben and Jonah, who appears in the previous book Flight of Magpies, and as you will see, things are going swimmingly for them.
Individual pages follow, and there’s a pdf link at the bottom for download.
Happy Valentine’s Day from me and Lyudmila. I hope yours is better than Ben and Jonah’s…
If you stop running, you fall.
Jonah Pastern is a magician, a liar, a windwalker, a professional thief…and for six months, he was the love of police constable Ben Spenser’s life. Until his betrayal left Ben jailed, ruined, alone, and looking for revenge.
Ben is determined to make Jonah pay. But he can’t seem to forget what they once shared, and Jonah refuses to let him. Soon Ben is entangled in Jonah’s chaotic existence all over again, and they’re running together—from the police, the justiciary, and some dangerous people with a lethal grudge against them.
Threatened on all sides by betrayals, secrets, and the laws of the land, can they find a way to live and love before the past catches up with them?
This story is set in the world of the Charm of Magpies series.
Thank you so much! And doesn’t your heart just break for them… I’m looking forward to the 17th February very much indeed.
Yay! Thanks. 🙂
Squeeee… Counting down the days, and so very glad I’m in the future, as it were… ^.~
I like to picture you whizzing in from the future with a jet pack. 🙂
Thank you, KJ, Lyudmila and Valeria, for this awesome teaser. I already have Jackdaw on pre-order so this heightens the anticipation! I love the symmetry of Ben and Jonah thinking of the other man – same memory, different POV. The ambiguity of the ending points to heartbreak for them. Can’t wait!
/rubs hands evilly/
Congratulation K J, Lyudmila and Valeria for putting such a wonderful amazing Valentines Day short together just WOW!! Now I want “Jackdaw” now I did pre-ordered it!!
This is amazing!! Looking forward to JACKDAW.
Soooooooo much better than a book video. This is brilliant. I’ve NEVER seen a graphic novel with better squalor! My heart bleeds for Ben – for Jonah, no, I’m going to take some convincing. Looking forward to it.
I am going to use you as my ‘did i pull this off’ touchstone…
It occurs to me that I’ve been less appreciative of your wordsmithery than I should have been. Blown away by the pictures you see. But that last line has been running through my mind all morning. Lovely ambiguity.
It has a pleasing symmetry to it, which Lyuda’s picture does glorious things to.
Lyudmila and Veleria, your work is gorgeous! (I really like those cherry bed sheets :D)
Thanks KJ, this is really unique…. And great tease for Jackdaw.. 🙂
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! It’s absolutely gorgeous *^_^*
This was amazing! Great job to everyone involved.
This is wonderful! (No more crying, Tif, no more crying…)
Absolutely wonderful job! This universe lends itself so well to the graphic novel format. I look forward to reading/seeing more!
I thought Jonah was the one with the hairy chest?
