Just before Valentine's Day comes, two authors have given us a wonderful gift - cover reveal!!!
Earlier this day, Maggie Stiefvater, author of the Shiver trilogy, has unveiled the book cover of The Dream Thieves, sequel to her paranormal YA novel The Raven Boys. Then minutes before midnight, Diana Peterfreund also revealed the cover for the companion book of For Darkness Shows the Star, entitled Across A Star-Swept Sea. I really liked Maggie's The Raven Boys, and I fell in love with Diana's dystopian retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion through For Darkness Shows the Stars. One of my best reads of 2012. So I was extremely elated when I saw that the sequel and the companion already had covers. eeeek!!!
To find out more about Across A Star-Swept Sea, the team from EpicReads has interviewed Diana Peterfreund. Click HERE.
So far, The Dream Thieves does not have it's blurb yet and I haven't scoured any vital information except that it will be out on September 17, 2013
Book 1 (Left) Book 2 (Right)
If I were to choose which book between the pair of books has the better cover, I would choose... THE RAVEN BOYS and FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS.
For The Raven Boys, I like how the first book only had one element on the cover. I still liked the cover for the second book. It is very suited for what might happen and the revelations in the second book. But I favor the "Raven without the Boy" cover better.
Okay! I'll admit it. I am in love with everything in For Darkness Shows the Stars. I think the first book's cover looks more magical (maybe because of the stars) than the second. The cover for the first book is just "breathless" beautiful, even though it is somewhat misleading relative to the story. The second book's cover is "sigh" beautiful. But I think this cover will be more fitting with the story.
So, what do you think? Comments?
