Cover Reveals

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Revealed on: GoodReads
Expected Release Date: October 23, 2012

Two days after Mara walks into a police station in Miami at the close of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, she is committed for psychiatric treatment for what her parents believe is a mental breakdown. But what seems like a hallucination to everyone else is a chilling reality for Mara. Someone from her past has discovered her strange, disturbing secret and that someone wants her to pay. But she’s about to discover that the price is more than she can bear.

Dark and thrilling, suspenseful and passionate, The Evolution of Mara Dyer will have readers breathlessly turning pages to find out what will become of Mara Dyer next.

I love how they kept with the underwater theme. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was one of my favorite covers.

Revealed on:Julie Kagawa’s blog
Expected Release Date:August 28, 2012

Summer, Winter, Iron.
Together at last.

Dangerous faeries. Heartbreaking romance. Thrilling action and limitless adventure. The world of the fey has never been so powerful. This collection includes three novellas set in the world of The Iron Fey plus the expanded Guide to the Nevernever and exclusive information about Julie Kagawa’s unforgettable world of Faery.

Yet another stunning cover from Kagawa’s camp. The Iron Fey covers don’t disappoint!

 

 

 

 

 

Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz

Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz
Revealed on: Hannah Moskowitz’s blog
Expected Release Date: January 2013
Hannah Moskowitz’s (author of BREAK and INVINCIBLE SUMMER) TEETH features a sixteen-year-old boy whose family, in an effort to cure his ailing brother, relocates to a remote island where legendary magic fish are said to have healing powers, and he discovers the island has terrible secrets, including a half-teenager, half-fish.

We are huge fans of Moskowitz and are eagerly waiting for this release. This may just be my most favorite cover of hers.

 

 

 

 

 

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake ;(Final cover)
Revealed on: Kendare Blake’s blog
Expected Release Date: August 7, 2012
In this follow-up to ;Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas begins seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he’s asleep, and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong. These aren’t just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.
Cas doesn’t know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn’t deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it’s time for him to return the favor.

We are loving the finished cover for Girl of Nightmares! Just look at Anna. She’s ready to tear your innards out. So lovable (that’s my black soul speaking).

 

 

Empty by K.M. Walton

Expected Release Date: January 1, 2013

Covers showing off a book’s metaphor are best. I can tell this cover tells a story all by itself.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outpost by Ann Aguirre

Outpost by Ann Aguirre
Revealed on: Ann Aguirre’s blog ;(There is a giveaway going on there too!)
Expected Release Date: September 4, 2012

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Now living topside in a community called Salvation, she has a whole new set of problems. Down below, she was considered an adult, and she contributed to the whole. Now, topside, the people of Salvation think she’s a brat in need of training. She hates school, and she doesn’t fit in with the other girls. They’ve spent their lives learning to cook and sew–suitable woman’s work. Deuce only knows how to fight. To make matters worse, Fade keeps her at a distance, and the band of four has broken into fragments.
Stalker presses for a closer relationship, but Deuce sees him as a training partner, and she’s busy trying to find her place in Salvation. She refuses to accept that she’s wrong for being who she is, but tensions rise as she struggles against the status quo. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Once she’s free from school for the year, Deuce pursues a chance to serve in the summer patrols–those responsible for making sure the growers and planters can work the fields without danger of Freak attack. It should have been routine, little fighting, but things have been changing on surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks are smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it will take a girl like Deuce to turn the tide.

Outpost is keeping in line with the same theme from Enclave. Very nice.

 

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama
Revealed on: The Crowe’s Nest
Expected Release Date: September 4, 2012

Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences.

Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse? With Ezra’s help, Hester investigates her family’s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean—but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago.

I love the use of colors in this one. It’s much more inviting.

So, that’s it for this week! Be sure to visit back next week for more Hot New Titles and cover love!
