THE BLACK MAGE SERIES by Rachel E. ; Cover Reveal!!!

I am so excited to be part of the cover reveal for Rachel E. Carter’s book series, The Black Mage!

The Black Mage series has become one of my favorite of all time! AND THE BOOKS ARE GETTING A MAKEOVER! I wasn’t a fan of the old covers and I am happy to say that these new ones are AMAZING! I am going to tease you and put the covers at the end of this post so there will be a massive built up! Ready? GO

Here is a bit about the series:

Title: The Black Mage
Books: 4 and one novella
Non-Heir (novella)
First Year
Last Stand
Genre: Fantasy
Synopsis: (the synopsis for the last three books won’t be here because I don’t want to spoil anyone who hasn’t read the previous book)

Magic. Romance. Rivals. Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Falling Kingdoms, and Tamora Pierce.

This prequel novella is set before the events of First Year (The Black Mage Book 1), following Prince Darren as a child through adolescence and his first run-in with Ryiah at the Academy of Magic. Readers discover the dark back story between the two princes and their father, as well as the ensuing events that shaped Darren into the Academy’s most prodigal mage

 First Year
Fifteen-year-old Ryiah enrolls at her realm’s most notorious war school for those with magic.But there’s a catch—only fifteen will be apprenticed. Competition is fierce and she trusts no one,especially the arrogant Prince Darren… Will she survive, or will her dream go down in flames?

Do you finally want to see the covers?

Guys, you aren’t ready for this… OH you think you are?

Well then just scroll down so you can see the new covers!

Just a little bit…

Not yet there but you are getting closer…

Are you sure you are ready? Okay then, almost there…








Hehe I told you, you weren’t ready! Aren’t these amazing?!
I love these new covers, they are eye-catching and would look great on a shelf.
The way that Ryiah (the girl on the cover) changes from shy and not-sure to a confident powerful mage is AMAZING! It describes the books so much, and the colors from each book shifts into the next, did you notice that? My favorite cover is probably Last Stand, because the color is just great and Ryiah looks, like I said, like the confident powerful woman that she is.

Here are a few  important things regarding these new covers,  the time you can buy the books with new covers plus Rachel’s information and the way to be kept up-to-date:

I would totally recommend you to sign up for Rachel’s newsletter and get Non-Heir! I read it and it was brilliant. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t started the series yet or if you’re already on the second book, the prequel novella is a really good place to start or pick up!

I am going to show you ALL the new covers of the whole series so that you can admire all of them individually but also as a whole (plus I’m in love with them and am going to show them as much as possible, lol)

non-heir  NON-HEIR, The prequel novella

first-year  FIRST YEAR, The first book. (Review here)

apprentice  APPRENTICE, The second book. (Review here)

candidate  CANDIDATE, The third book. (Review here)

last-stand  LAST STAND, The last (and heartbreaking ;)… What?) book.


I am currently reading Last Stand and, people, THIS IS A SERIES YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS! My review for Last Stand will hopefully be up at the end of the month.

Now that you’ve seen the covers what do you think? I really like them, and last stand is, without a doubt, my favorite. The others are close behind though!

      Yes, they’re absolutely gorgeous! I also got these as E-ARCs but just like you I also need to buy physical copies because I NEED them on my shelf ❤ And I'm really glad you liked the books because this is one of my favorite series!


    • Chez says:

      Of course! Are you in the mood for something specific? If it’s fantasy I’d recommend the A Court of Thorns ad Roses series, The Iron Fey or The Steel and Stone series! Sci-fi: the Lux series or Alienated. The Selection series is also a good one (not the last two books *shudders* they never happened!). Or Maybe the Royal series? Tell me if you need more!💖
