There have been a slew of cover alerts and changes that I wanted to share with you all!
The first, and probably biggest, is the cover premiere of City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare:
In Book 5: City of Lost Souls, the Shadowhunters struggle to piece together their shattered world after a betrayal by one of their own leaves them reeling.It comes out May 8, 2012.
Just wow! These latest covers from The Mortal Instruments series are just blowing my mind. I loved that Simon got to be on City of Fallen Angels but this steamy picture of Jace and Clary is just gorgeous! I love everything about it from their pose to the passionate way they are looking at each other to her red hair.
Up next, Divergent by Veronica Roth gets a change in paperback to match Insurgent coming out in the UK.
I'm really loving these new covers. I think they fit really well with the feeling of the book. I especially like the burning leaves on Insurgent.
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan is also getting a new cover for the release of the second novel Spark.
I did actually like the old cover for Glow too but these re-designs are just gorgeous. I'm in love with the soft colors and the girl's face in the title for Glow is absolutely stunning set behind the stars. Spark's cover is even more beautiful if that's humanly possible.
Also, another cover was announced a while back for a book called The Unnaturalists by Tiffany Trent.
In an alternate London where magical creatures are preserved in a museum, two teens find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, deception, and danger.
Vespa Nyx wants nothing more than to spend the rest of her life cataloging Unnatural creatures in her father’s museum, but as she gets older, the requirement to become a lady and find a husband is looming large. Syrus Reed’s Tinker family has always served and revered the Unnaturals from afar, but when his family is captured to be refinery slaves, he finds that his fate may be bound up with Vespa’s—and with the Unnaturals.
As the danger grows, Vespa and Syrus find themselves in a tightening web of deception and intrigue. At stake may be the fate of New London—and the world.It's coming out April 14, 2012.
I love that the cover is oh-so steampunk! The greens work really well with the juxtaposition of the cityscape!
Finally, I posted up a novel called Transendence by C.J. Omololu on one of my WoW posts but it's since received a new cover!
Love isn’t the only emotion to survive death . . .
When a visit to the Tower of London triggers an overwhelmingly real vision of a beheading that occurred centuries before, Cole Ryan fears she is losing her mind. A mysterious boy, Griffon Hall, comes to her aid, but the intensity of their immediate connection seems to open the floodgate of memories even wider.
As their feelings grow, Griffon reveals their common bond as members of the Akhet—an elite group of people who can remember past lives and use their collected wisdom for the good of the world. But not all Akhet are altruistic, and a rogue is after Cole to avenge their shared past. Now in extreme danger, Cole must piece together clues from many lifetimes. What she finds could ruin her chance at a future with Griffon, but risking his love may be the only way to save them both.
Full of danger, romance, and intrigue, Transcendence breathes new life into a perpetually fascinating question: What would you do with another life to live?It comes out June 5, 2012.
The other cover was interesting but I like this one more with the two people looking straight into the camera. I think the post is interesting and I love the background. Awesome!
So there are some covers you need to be aware of! What do you think about the switches?
