As you know, we are huge fans of Sarah Rees Brennan’s Demon’s Lexicon Trilogy and we are MOST excited about her upcoming novel Unspoken. As such, we are delighted to welcome Sarah to the blog today to reveal its cover. Without further ado, BEHOLD! The cover of Unspoken!
THE SMUGGLERIFIC COVER:
WE LOVE IT! And we can’t wait to get our hands on the book.
For now, we have a few extra bits.
Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.
But all that changes when the Lynburns return.
The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the- Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
Sarah Rees Brennan brings Gothic romance kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century with a funny, modern heroine who can take care of herself, an angry, beautiful boy who needs to be saved, and the mysterious forces that bring them together and tear them apart.
A WORD FROM SARAH REES BRENNAN AND ARC GIVEAWAY:
Authors are always scared about their covers, but I was more scared of this one than most. A Gothic novel… what were Gothic novels meant to look like these days? How do you make a cover romantical and mysterious and classic-looking but not olden-days-looking? How do you have that kind of cover with an active-looking heroine? WAS IT IMPOSSIBLE? Was all hope LOST?
This cover came to me after my first cover artist disappeared into thin air (current theory: she murdered someone and went on the lam) and I was in a state of terror.
I was so happy when I saw the first sketch by my fabulous cover artist Beth White, I burst into tears in the airport. I feel so incredibly lucky to have got it. Are you feeling lucky? Comment for an ARC…
