Cover Reveals

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows

Revealed On:Jodi Meadow’s blog

Date of Publication: 2013

 

DARKSOULS
Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.

SHADOWS
Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

LOVE
Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.

In this second book in the Incarnate trilogy, Ana discovers the truth about reincarnation and will have to find a way to embrace love and make her young life meaningful. Once again, Jodi Meadows explores the extraordinary beauty and shadowed depths of the soul in a story equal parts epic romance and captivating fantasy.

 

Cuddlebuggery’s cover synopsis:

Flowerwoman: Asunder!  After a young, budding scientist is bitten by a radioactive flower and transforms into a superhero with the power to gaze deep into a person’s soul and judge them, things become increasingly difficult.  Under attack by other superheros like Superman, who don’t want to be told what a jerkface they are, Flowerwoman questions her poignant, yet dignified pout in the face of danger.  But her judgment is fueled by photosynthesis from the rays of the sun.  And if she can’t turn off the sun, then she can never stop judging.

Fathomless by Jackson Pearce

Revealed on: Jackson Pearce’s blog

Publication Date: 24 September 2012

Fathomless (Fairytale Retellings, #3)

Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant — until Celia meets Lo.

Lo doesn’t know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea — a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid — all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she’s becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she’s tempted to embrace her dark immortality.

When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude’s affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there’s only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.

 

Cuddlebuggery Cover Synopsis:

Mermy the mermaid necklace had a dream – to swim in the ocean like a real mermaid.  When her chance comes, she takes it.  But the ocean has secrets and it’s a terribly big place for a little mermaid necklace that… can’t actually swim.  Mermy realizes she didn’t think that part through very well, but that’s not unreasonable because she was purchased for $29 at a discount jewelers and she’s only gold plated.  What can she do?  How will she survive.  Things seems mostly hopeless since she’s an inanimate object and thus can’t do anything and was never alive to begin with.

    Super excited for Code Name Verity, because I’ve heard almost nothing but excellent things about that one. I think both of the covers revealed are lovely, although I wish they hadn’t changed Jackson’s covers; I love the original covers for Sisters Red and Sweetly.

    Also, I now really want someone to write your cover stories.
