Cover Discovered (6)

Saturday, April 23, 2011

I found more covers!  That's right, Cover Discovered is where I bring you the latest covers that either just released, or I just found.  Mind you, these may not be the final cover put in the final product but they're still pretty to look at.  Check these covers out:

Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

Publisher: Random House
Publication Date: October 2011
Series or Stand Alone: stand alone
Per Order It: Amazon
As far as romantic pairings go in the year 2195, you don't get much more unlikely than an upper-class schoolgirl and a poor miner from enemy tribes. Filter in the fact that he's a zombie, and you're definitely talking about star-crossed love.

Dearly, Departed is a cyber-Victorian/steampunk romance that takes place in the shadow of a new ice age. Nora Dearly, a mouthy teenage girl and apparent orphan, leaves school for Christmas - only to be dragged into the night by the living dead. Luckily for her, though, the good ones got to her first. From her reanimated rescuers she learns not only that zombies are roaming the countryside, but that her father is one - and that he's in terrible trouble. She also meets Captain Bram Griswold, a noble, strong, and rather sweet undead boy for whom she starts to fall.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Pamela Roe, is just trying to carry on with life as best she can in the wake of Nora's disappearance - when she ends up killing an evil zombie in self-defense. Pam is galvanized into action, and ends up leading a group of survivors as the city of New London is thronged by the ravenous dead.

Upon hearing of Pamela's plight, Nora and Bram set out to rescue her friends, find her missing father, and maybe just save what's left of the world. --Goodreads
This is a debut author, Lia Habel, but the whole book sounds epic.  It's not just the cover that draws you in.  It's the zombies, the steampunk, the dystopian feel.  Love it all.  I am definitely counting down the days for this one to come out.  The cover is gorgeous.  It looks creepy, yet beautiful.  I love how she's in a graveyard, holding a parasol and looking all gloom and doom.   She's wearing an amazing dress and everything about it is just black-and-white gorgeous. 

Deadly Little Voices by Laurie Faria Stolarz

Publication Date: December 6, 2011
Series or Stand Alone: series, Touch #4
Per Order It: Amazon
High school junior Camelia thought her powers of psychometry only gave her the ability to sense the future through touch. But now she’s started to hear voices. Mean voices. Berating her, telling her how ugly she is, and that she’d be better off dead. It’s a troubling development that has Camelia terrified for her mental stability, especially since her deranged aunt with a suicidal history just moved into the family house. More torturing, ex-boyfriend Ben, who has similar psychometric abilities, has been spending more time with their classmate Alejandra, even as her own feelings for Adam grow stronger. Still, the bond between Camelia and Ben is palpable.

With the line between right and wrong fraying, Camelia turns to pottery to get a grasp on her emotions. She begins sculpting a beautiful figure skater, only to receive frightening premonitions that someone’s in danger. But who is the victim? And how can Camelia help them when she is on the brink of losing her own sanity? --Goodreads
I love this cover.  The flowers really bring out the girl's dress.  Her bare feet are very cute.  The whole cover goes with the theme of the entire series.  It's very pretty.

So which cover was your favorite?

  2. Cover Discovered is a great idea and it looks like you've got some terrific finds. I just wanted to let you know that I grabbed your button and added it to my blog roll. I also featured 'The Bucket List' in this weeks YA Blogger Show and Tell post on my blog.
