River Of Ashes: Cover reveal and extract

We exclusively reveal the cover for upcoming gothic novel River of Ashes plus the first seven chapters!

River OF Ashes

Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor’s River Of Ashes follows psychopath Beau Devereaux who has set his sights on a new victim…

Out this summer, the novel is Book 1 in the St Benedict series (with a TV show currently in development) and we’re delighted to not only reveal the cover but give you an extended extract from the novel!

Here is the official synopsis.

Along the banks of the Bogue Falaya River, sits the abandoned St. Francis Seminary. Beneath a canopy of oaks, blocked from prying eyes, the teens of St. Benedict High gather here on Fridays. The rest of the week belongs to school and family—but weekends belong to the river. And the river belongs to Beau Devereaux.

The only child of a powerful family, Beau can do no wrong. Handsome. Charming. Intelligent. Star quarterback and the ultimate catch. He is also a psychopath. A dirty family secret buried for years, Beau’s evil grows unchecked. In the shadows of the ruined St. Francis Abbey, he commits unspeakable acts on his victims and ensures their silence with threats and intimidation. Senior year, Beau sets his sights on his girlfriend’s headstrong twin sister, Leslie, who hates him. Everything he wants but cannot have, she will be his ultimate prize. As the victim toll mounts, it becomes crystal clear that someone has to stop Beau Devereaux. And that someone will pay with their life.

Dying (sorry) to see if Beau bags his ultimate prize? You’ll have to wait until the book comes out this August, but for now we’re revealing not just a couple of chapters from the novel, but a mega SEVEN chapters of the novel. No strings attached, we promise!

So settle down to enjoy the first few chapters of a gothic novel full of murder and mystery…
