It’s a sad, sad day

I just learned the final novel in the Lila Gray series is soon coming to an end.  I have followed this series written by the incomparable Jocelyn Adams since the first novel, The Glass Man.  Then came Shadowborn, which I just received from the author and am sinking my teeth into.  I can’t believe the series is coming to an end with Rise of the Magi.

But isn’t the cover pretty?

Rise of the Magi by Jocelyn Adams

Back of the Book

In a battle of wills, who is strongest? The one who hates or the one who loves?

In a test of faith, who will fight the hardest? The one who has everything to lose or the one who believes only in herself?

For Lila Gray, the answer is both.For the Magi, the questions are pointless since they can’t lose, and they’ve been waiting since before Lila’s birth for this one moment. Lila only needs to find them to understand her entire purpose in life. This time, though, instead of protecting her people, Lila may be leading them all, including her unborn child and the man she loves, to their deaths — and not by accident.

In the ultimate trial of heart and soul, and the conclusion to the Lila Gray series, Lila will learn that the greatest weapon of war is herself, with one ultimate unknown. For which side will she fight?

So, what do you think?  I hope you check it out and love the series as much as I do.

  1. That’s a really pretty cover. It caught my eye and made me want to know more. 🙂 Sorry the books are wrapping up. I hate saying goodbye to a favorite character.


  2. I think it is always a little sad when a character’s story has come to its ultimate conclusion, especially if the reader has followed him/her through a couple of books already. It’s almost like saying goodbye to a close friend. 🙂


  3. Jenny, I haven’t read any of these books, but I completely understand the sense of loss we feel when a series we love comes to an end. Don’t you think it must be that much harder for the author?


    1. Oh, I know it is. I know this author and I know she’s upset. The series has been such an integral part of her life. But if I know Jocelyn like I think I do, there’s something on the back burner simmering.
