Antagonize cover reveal!

Today I am in the lucky position to reveal the cover for the second Daniel Quinn novel - Antagonize.  You may remember that I read and reviewed the fist book in the series, Energize, in 2013 and awarded it 4 stars.  Well worth a read if you haven't gotten to it yet!

Now, onto Antagonize:-

Two worlds are at war, their destruction close to reality. Only one man can stop the bloodshed, but only if he survives the deadly game he’s been forced to play with a ruthless mercenary. Captain Daniel Quinn returns in Antagonize: From the Logs of Daniel Quinn by Thomas R. Manning.

Welcome to the official cover reveal and release announcement of Antagonize! Last June, Thomas made his debut in the literary world with the first Daniel Quinn novel, Energize! Since that time, there have been some amazing reviews of the book, calling it “electric, sorrowful, inventive, astonishing, and ultimately totally unpredictable and original”, and “superb and leaves you waiting to find out what other adventures are in store”.

Thomas is hard at work making sure that Antagonize rises above its predecessor in every way, and that includes the cover art! Without further delay, here is the cover of Antagonize, designed by the talented Megan Kennedy!

The official synopsis:

The planets Terra and Gaia have been at war for generations. Now in a last ditch effort, a council is formed to usher in an era of peace. But when members are ruthlessly killed, lines are drawn, sides grow hostile, and mutual destruction seems inevitable.

Far away on a desolate planet, Captain Daniel Quinn of the Kestrel Belle is summoned in the hopes that he can help stop the bloodshed. With armies of soldiers around every corner, and a deadly mercenary determined to stop him, Daniel is the only man who can help unite the two worlds.

It's a war that he didn't start, but one he will have to stop in order to save lives, including his own.

Thomas has also confirmed the release date for Antagonize: From the Logs of Daniel Quinn.

March 28th 2014!!! Available on Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, and more!

Check it out on Goodreads at, and to stay up to date with all of Thomas’s latest updates regarding Antagonize and future projects through his blog, and his website,

It looks good, doesn't it, and I'm here to tell you that it is even better than it looks!  Thomas has granted me the special privilege of being one of his beta readers, and I have read the first 2 chapters.  It's a great read, and I can't wait for more, believe me.  Energize was good, but I can already see that Antagonize is going to be even better.

Make sure to check back around the 28th March for the full review.
