A widowed beauty in a world of beasts.

On September 16, Cyndere’s Midnight arrives in stores.
On Thursday night, September 25, you’re invited to join me for a Cyndere’s Midnight release party at Third Place Books.
(By the way, in case you’re wondering, it’s pronounced “SIN-der.”)
And, thanks to artists Kristopher K. Orr and Kelly L. Howard, for their work on Cyndere’s cover.
Here’s what she looks like…
A few brave readers have taken a sneak peek at it. And they’ve shared some kind words…

Delving deeper into the vividly imagined world of The Expanse, with characters both diverse and sympathetic, and a story filled with heartbreak, hope, and wonder, Cyndere’s Midnight is a worthy follow-up to Jeffrey’s fantasy debut and another enchanting entry in The Auralia Thread…
Donita K. Paul, author of DragonLight and DragonSpell
Astonishing, arresting, rich and profound. Jeffrey Overstreet’s beauty of prose reveals the vileness of human nature and then, just as deftly, awakens hope.
John Wilson, Editor, Books & Culture
With Cyndere’s Midnight, Jeffrey Overstreet fulfills the promise of Auralia’s Colors: he has created a fully realized imaginative world, at once utterly distinctive and hauntingly familiar. I can’t wait for the next volume.
Sigmund Brouwer, author of Broken Angel
It’s entering a beautiful dream you don’t want to leave, with exhilarating tension that takes you beyond story and into deep truths.

When the Inklings (C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien) met at the “Bird and Baby” Pub each week they would read excerpts from their work, then critique and improve it. With Cyndere’s Midnight, the inventive and imaginative Jeffrey Overstreet delivers another well-crafted, artful work of fantasy, rewarding the thoughtful reader and reminding us that the spirit of the Inklings is alive and well and at least one living writer could have held his own at their table!
