Hi everyone! Petrik from Novel Notions here.
It’s been a while, but it’s time for another cover reveal! Today’s cover reveal will be for the newest book by Wick Welker, Saint Elspeth. I have read Dark Theory by the author and it was a great science fantasy novel, I will certainly keep an eye out on this one. And you should, too, if you love reading sci-fi. The author knows how to implement intriguing ideas and concepts into his narrative. The book will be released on the 4th of November 2023. If you are a reviewer who wants to read and review the book early, a request for an ARC should be open on the 4th of September 2023. Without further ado, here’s the beautiful cover reveal of Saint Elspeth by Wick Welker!

Why did they come?
When they appeared across the sky, speculation wheeled around the world: the aliens were from heaven, the invaders were from hell—or they were proof that neither existed. But when they landed, curiosity gave way to suspicion and the nations reacted with nuclear force, setting off a chain reaction that left the world in ruins.
Twenty years later, instead of nearing her retirement, Dr. Elspeth Darrow struggles to forget the loss of her child and husband by plunging herself into the work of operating the last remaining hospital in San Francisco. With medical supplies running out and working herself to exhaustion, Elspeth must embark on a risky salvage mission into the heart of the Neo California danger zone. Here she discovers the disturbing truth: the aliens have returned.
As the mystery of the alien’s purpose on Earth unravels before her, Elspeth must hide what she discovers from reactionary despots, all vying to bring Neo California under their control. Aided by a band of pre-war scientists and new-world medical students, Elspeth races against astronomical odds to reveal the terrifying truth that might save the world—or finally destroy it for good.
I want to give my special thanks to Wick Welker for allowing Novel Notions the honor and pleasure of hosting the exclusive cover reveal for Saint Elspeth. As fantasy and sci-fi enthusiasts, and self-proclaimed connoisseurs of book cover art, it means a lot for me and all of us here at Novel Notions to be given this opportunity.
