Cover Reveal: Gravity by Melissa West
It should be known that I am a huge fan of the authors under the Entangled Publishing line (my Waiting on Wednesday this week is by an Entangled author) and so it is with obvious pride and pleasure that I am able to assist in the cover reveal for another upcoming release, a science fiction novel titled GRAVITY by Melissa West.
About the novel:
In the future, only one rule will matter:
Don’t. Ever. Peek.
Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed – arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.
Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know – especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.
And now… the cover!
I love this cover. It’s both ominous and completely gorgeous all at the same time… The color is appropriate for the subject matter and I also like the title treatment. I like the inclusion of the rule: Don’t. Ever. Peek. (Do you say it as slowly as I do when reading it?) And since we’re dealing with an alien race in this story, who knows what to expect… I personally believe that there is not nearly enough science fiction out there in the YA book world. We NEED a book like this right now! I don’t know about you, but this is one book I plan to check out when it is released!
