Well all know that you should not judge a book by it's cover but who does not like the feeling of holding such a shiny gorgeous and pretty book in your clumsy little hands?
So today we are looking at two upcoming novels from Harperteen:
The first one is Deception the sequel to Defiance by C.J.Redwine. The book will hit shelves on August 27, 2013.
I love the pose of the model and the expression on her face. She looks so fierce and dangerous.
The colours are really beautiful, her red hair creates a great contrast. This cover is really beautiful!
And now for everyone who never heard of these books before, here is a summary of book 1:
Within the walls of Baalboden, beneath the shadow of the city's brutal leader, Rachel Adams has a secret. While other girls sew dresses and obey their male Protectors, Rachel knows how to survive in the wilderness and deftly wield a sword. When her father, Jared, fails to return from a courier mission and is declared dead, the Commander assigns Rachel a new Protector, her father's apprentice, Logan--the same boy Rachel declared her love for two years ago, and the same one who handed her heart right back to her. Left with nothing but a fierce belief in her father's survival, Rachel decides to escape and find him herself. But treason against the Commander carries a heavy price, and what awaits her in the Wasteland could destroy her.
At nineteen, Logan McEntire is many things. Orphan. Outcast. Inventor. As apprentice to the city's top courier, Logan is focused on learning his trade so he can escape the tyranny of Baalboden. But his plan never included being responsible for his mentor's impulsive daughter. Logan is determined to protect her, but when his escape plan goes wrong and Rachel pays the price, he realizes he has more at stake than disappointing Jared.
As Rachel and Logan battle their way through the Wasteland, stalked by a monster that can't be killed and an army of assassins out for blood, they discover romance, heartbreak, and a truth that will incite a war decades in the making.
The second cover is for The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas. It comes out on September 17, 2013.
Oh my god, it is so gorgeous! First of all I like that there is no model on this cover. It is a nice change from all those other covers around. (Which does not mean that I dislike covers with models on. Exhibit A would be the Defiance cover!)
The colours mix together really great and the whole scenery is so interesting. I wonder what the lightning is doing there and what the city/thingie down there is. This book captures the readers eye on first glance and makes you wondering what the whole book is about.
Here is a single clue, aka the summary:
It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…
Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.
Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he's also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to revenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.
But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life.
Which one is your favourite? Do not choose, just love them both :D
