Today I get to participate in the cover reveal for Jenelle Leanne Schmidt’s second book: Second Son.
In an attempt to manipulate the future, a family and a nation are forced to
decide between two brothers. Guided by a prophecy spoken hundreds of years
before, the King and Queen of Llycaelon have set their course. Their goal: to
fulfill the prophecy and save their nation from a dire fate.
Rhoyan has always understood and accepted his own role as second born and
perpetual prince. He looks forward to the day when he will be a warrior in his
older brother’s guard. When Rhoyan is sent on a quest filled with unimaginable
danger, nobody anticipates the greater repercussions.
As Rhoyan journeys far across the seas on his appointed trial, he will battle
creatures of legend, suffer shipwreck, endure captivity, and lay claim to a
fallen star. When tragedy strikes, Rhoyan must struggle to return home believing
his quest has failed. However, the home he left no longer awaits him and the
true test of his strength and character has only just begun.
Long before Aom-igh needed a champion, Llycaelon had a Second Son.

Jenelle grew up the oldest of four. Every night before bedtime her father read to her and her siblings, and it was during these times that her love for adventure and fantasy were forged. While she adored the stories of the Lord of the Rings, the Chronicles of Prydain, the Wheel of Time, and the Chronicles of Narnia; it wasn’t long before her imagination led her to the creation of a world and story all her own.
In 2001, Jenelle completed King’s Warrior, originally titled The Dragon’s Eye, as a project for her father who wanted something new and fun to read to the family at night. This first endeavor gave way to the completion of a four book series that is full of the same adventure that Jenelle grew to love in literature as a little girl. Jenelle graduated from Taylor University in Indiana in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in English Education.
Jenelle has written numerous short stories and many poems, as well as some full length work within the realm of science fiction. King’s Warrior is her first published work and she is currently working on bringing the rest of the series to public availability. Jenelle lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her
husband Derek and two little girls Leiana Arwen and Nathalie Eowyn.
