Holy Sister US Cover Reveal


I’m thrilled to reveal yet another beautiful cover from ACE and artist Bastien Lecouffe-Deharme for the US edition of Mark Lawrence‘s upcoming book: Holy Sister



They came against her as a child. Now they face the woman.

The ice is advancing, the Corridor narrowing, and the empire is under siege from the Scithrowl in the east and the Durns in the west. Everywhere, the emperor’s armies are in retreat.

Nona faces the final challenges that must be overcome if she is to become a full sister in the order of her choice. But it seems unlikely that Nona and her friends will have time to earn a nun’s habit before war is on their doorstep.

Even a warrior like Nona cannot hope to turn the tide of war.

The shiphearts offer strength that she might use to protect those she loves, but it’s a power that corrupts. A final battle is coming in which she will be torn between friends, unable to save them all. A battle in which her own demons will try to unmake her.

A battle in which hearts will be broken, lovers lost, thrones burned.






Holy Sister, The Third Book of the Ancestor, will be published in the US on April 9, 2019, you may already pre-order it on Amazon!

In the UK Holy Sister will be published by HarperVoyager on 4 Apr 2019 and can be also already pre-ordered on Amazon!




  1. I love your Characters Mark. Nona is over the top. I have read Red sister and Grey sister twice. I look forward to the Holy Sister with great anticipation.
    One requests: Does this have to be a trilogy???
