Garden of Ashes

Garden of Ashes
Series: The Legend of Eden #2
Release date: September 1st 2014
Publisher: Anchor Group

After four years as a prisoner in her parents’ attic, hidden away from the Catchers, Eden never dreamt the very people she was hiding from would be the beginning of such impossible things. She’s found freedom on the island like she never imagined.
Eden is a sorcerer, with the power of the world in her fingertips. She is determined to never be helpless like she once was, and spends every minute of her spare time training to fight back. As she discovers more of her own power, she and her friends continue to uncover the secrets of the Council. Deadly secrets, hinting at something far larger than the island and the Catchers. Before they can find out exactly what the Council is hiding, Eden’s magic begins to spiral out of control, and she loses it for just a second. Just half of a second, and it’s enough to change everything.

Suddenly, lives are put at stake, and Eden and her friends must do something no one else has ever dared. They have to escape the island, or they have to die trying.

Bookish Mood Boards 200


Mood boards are a collage consisting of images and text.  Nereyda at Mostly YA Book Obsessed has started sharing her Bookish Mood Boards which combines her creativity and love of books.  This is a fun way to visually illustrate a story. Nereyda’s boards are amazing so you have to visit her blog to check them out! 

For my stop on the Garden of Ashes blog tour I created my first Bookish Mood Board:

Garden of Ashes by Kate Cowan



For those of you who are not familiar with this series here is an explanation for the images I selected:

  • The Legend of Eden series is set on a mysterious island. The children live in what is described as an old castle.

  • Eden has dark black hair, fair skin and bright blue eyes. She’s beautiful (but modest) and mysterious!

  • The magic Eden does is orbs of light that come from her hands.

  • Eden was given a snow leopard ring from a mysterious stranger. The ring is special in that only she can see it and it sometimes comes to life while she wears it.

  • The dagger symbolizes the training the children are going through on the island.  It is still a mystery as to what they are being trained for.


katecowanKate Cowan is an artist, an animation student, a black belt in karate and now, an author. She didn’t discover writing until mid-high school, when she began writing an (unintentionally) hilarious novel involving a teenage girl and a magic necklace. Her current novel series, The Legend of Eden, began as a story of Arthurian magic, but quickly transformed into something much different.

Kate currently lives in Ontario, Canada, in a zoo of a house. When she isn’t writing, she’s drawing, cooking, or browsing the Internet for new music.
