Recent Cover Reveals

Hello all! So, recently, there've been quite a few mind-bogglingly awesome covers revealed on various websites.  While I probably COULD include all of them and make this post exceptionally long, I'm going to focus on those of Friday the Thirteeners bloggers, because . . . well, because these guys are fantastic, their covers are fantastic, and their novels most certainly sound fantastic.

Prophecy by Ellen Oh
The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms . . . is a girl with yellow eyes.

Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope. . . .

Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.



                                                 The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd
London, 1894. Juliet Moreau has built a life for herself—working as a maid, attending church on Sundays, and trying not to think about the scandal that ruined her life. After all, no one ever proved the rumors about her father’s gruesome experiments. But when she learns her father is alive and continuing his work on a remote tropical island, she is determined to find out if the accusations were true. 

Juliet is accompanied by the doctor’s handsome young assistant and an enigmatic castaway, who both attract Juliet for very different reasons. They travel to the island only to discover the depths of her father’s madness: he has created animals that have been vivisected to resemble, speak, and behave as humans. Worse, one of the creatures has turned violent and is killing the island’s inhabitants. Juliet knows she must end her father’s dangerous experiments and escape the island, even though her horror is mixed with her own scientific curiosity. As the island falls into chaos, she discovers the extent of her father’s genius—and madness—in her own blood.





Taken by Erin Bowman
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends...and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive. 

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

If you can look at those covers and those summaries and say you don't want these novels more than life, I may have to question your sanity.

Love the cover for Prophecy and Taken. The Madman's Daughter is an okay cover to me. They all sound really awesome though!!

Sam

The cover for Taken is probably my favourite! I love the different colours in that. The cover for The Madman's Daughter is really cool too. Yes, it's a girl in a dress but it has a distinctly different feel to it. Can't wait to read all 3 books!

roro

agree w/ sam

Meg K.

I just LOVE the cover for TAKEN. The colors are amazing and the picture of how it looks as though the girl is about to walk off a building is just stunning. PROPHECY looks pretty good, too!

Thanks for sharing. :)
