FINALLY! The sequel to Trevor Littleton’s #1 Bestselling Debut Novel is here! Explore the mystery prying eyes aren’t meant to see. A peak behind the curtain of veiled spirituality, The Avonlea Saga is the chilling tale of the Avonlea family, a fraternity of angels and Last of the Watchers of Men. 

Attorney Zach Cooper and his new bride, Elizabeth find themselves back in the mundane routine of everyday life. Two years removed from the asylum incident, the couple scours daily news outlets, longing for one shred of evidence of the angelic fraternity. 

The Avonleas are missing.

A gruesome crime leads Zach and Elizabeth to a divine appointment where they are confronted with an ancient truth and unlikely ally. When trust is broken, Zach explores the mystery of, “The Sons of Thunder” and unearths an Avonlea family secret that cuts the newlyweds to the bone. 

Darkness has fallen over that which is beautiful, and not every story has a happy ending.

I want something to look Adventurous, Broken, and Rustic.

The first book cover is included in the images. I will eventually be having it redesigned after this project. The story in the first book concluded with a major fight, but Ikon Avonlea's future in the Avonlea fraternity uncertain.

In this story, He saves the Avonleas from Lucifer, then reunites with the Avonlea family and attorney Zechariah Cooper. Ikon and his brother Hoss are two very powerful warrior angels. Together, they are called the Sons of Thunder because of their power. Together they have overturned every army and civilization in human history. However, both of them bear a deep family secret that is revealed in this book regarding their friend and neighbor Zach Cooper and his Grandfather. Zach, the main character in book one, discovers that Ikon is the father of his grandfather, making him a member of the Avonlea family himself. This is also a secret the Avonleas have hidden from him over the years.

I need a cover that is adventurous, broken, and rustic which teases the brothers, one faithful to his call and another fallen/broken. I also need something to tease the tension between Zach and the Avonlea family. He is a son of theirs as well, but does not yet know.

Is there anything else you would like to communicate to the designers?

Book #1: Avonlea, "Last of the Watchers of Men" was an bestseller.

Even though this book is about, "Angels" I want them portrayed as rugged, human, strong, but not typical angels (no wings/halos, etc.

I have a logo design created (see the bird/fire image). This is the Avonlea family Logo and I want it incorporated mightily in the book cover design as well.

In the books, Every Avonlea family member wears a white shirt and blue jeans except Ikon. Ikon is genuinely dressed in black.

Ikon and Hoss are very muscular. Hoss is larger than Ikon. Ikon carries a darkness about his personality while Hoss leans on the more naive side of life.

Zach is also tall and broad, but not as physically imposing as the other two.

Also, in the book, there are five members of the Avonlea fraternity who serve as main characters, in addition to Ikon. Only one of them is a female (red hair). There is one shorter character who has red hair, is an academic, and can manipulate fire. One character is tall and skinny, young, but very, very fast. Finally, Logos, the general of the Avonlea fraternity is elderly, but muscular (think hipster dad/beard type/or retired military general).
