I am super stoked and super honored to be part of the group of people that get to reveal the cover for Jessica Therrien’s next book in her Children of the Gods series.
If you don’t remember (and I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t, because it was a while ago!), I reviewed her first novel, Oppression. It was an excellent and quick read, and I’d recommend it to anyone who loves mythology (or fantasy in general).
The next installment is going to be called Uprising. (Doesn’t that just have a cool ring to it?) I think this book is going to be even better than the last one, and I can’t wait until I can get my hands on it!
Without further ado, here’s the cover in all its glory.
Isn’t that mesmerizing? I love the way the covers are all monochrome. I can’t wait to see what the next one will be like!
There’s no book blurb yet, but she’s got an awesome teaser:
We left everything but the weapons. Clothes, food, toothpaste. There wasn’t time for things that weren’t essential to escape. The five of us went on foot in a direction that was meaningless to me. I had never seen what was outside of the edges of the safe haven, not since I’d been here.
When Mac stopped abruptly after our fifteen-minute trek into the woods, we all froze at once, bodies poised and ready to attack, eyes searching for threats.
“We’re here,” Mac announced. “What should we expect Marcus?”
I had never heard Dr. Nickel called by his first name, and it made me realize he wasn’t as untouchable as I had imagined. Just because he was here, didn’t mean we were safe.
“I don’t know,” he answered. “Maybe an army, maybe nothing. Depends on where they are.”
“Everyone best get down on the ground just in case,” Mac decided with a nod. “Weapons ready.”
As I lay belly down in the dirt, I noticed Dr. Nickel pull a gun from his belt, and my stomach gave a heave.
“When I remove the haven walls, there will be a van. Everyone get in back. If anything goes wrong…” Mac paused, uncomfortable at the thought. “It’s been nice knowin’ ya.”
The release date isn’t until February 19, 2013 (*resounding, “awww maaannn!!”*), but you can find Jessica and her books in the links below:
So, come on, guys. What do you think? Isn’t that cover beautiful? Are you at all intrigued by the concept of this series?
