You all know how much I love Texas, and especially how much I love to support local authors. London Cole is not only a local author, but he is also a great friend!
So, today, I am honored to help London reveal the cover for his upcoming YA novel, Whisper's Edge, the second book in the Whisper Walker Series. I had the opportunity to read and review the first book, Whisper Walker, several months ago, and I really enjoyed it. You can find my review here. I am so excited to continue the series and see what kind of trouble Drake and Kelsie are up to.
Now, let's get to the good part - the cover reveal! Due out on September 28, 2012, I give you...
Drake and Kelsie quickly discover life won't be quite the same after getting their new abilities, but they hope everything will settle into a sort of normalcy. It doesn't take long for them to realize it's not the kind of normal they were hoping for.
When Kelsie joins Drake for a routine Hunt, they end up stumbling upon an underground bunker that hasn't been opened in nearly a century. When they meet a far-too-friendly ghost, it should be their first indicator to leave things alone and get out of there. Never ones to resist the opportunity for excitement or mystery, they end up in a situation that could cost them dearly–threatening not only everything they've worked for, but their very lives!
Drake's world is turned upside down. A mysterious new girl seems intent on capturing his heart, but that's not all she's after.
Kelsie faces betrayal by the one she holds most dear, only to meet someone new who could change her entire existence; past, present, and future. If only she can stay alive long enough to find out the truth...
And, in keeping with the beautiful, intriguing cover for Whisper's Edge, London also had the cover for Whisper Walker re-imagined. Check it out!
After turning seventeen, orphan Drake Adair discovers he can see ghosts when he falls into a pit of human remains while running for his life. What he doesn't realize is that he's stumbled onto his destiny.
Kelsie Blake, Drake's roommate and closest friend since she fled her filicidal father, has secrets. Secrets she keeps even from Drake. Sneaking outside the Gates into the wild, she risks everything for a little excitement. Her lies now threaten everything she cares about most in her life.
Drake unearths a plot by an enemy Guild to tear apart life as he knows it. The very people closest to him may be pawns in the grisly scheme, leaving Kelsie and Drake with no one to turn to as they struggle to find answers before it's too late.
Set eighty years after World War III, Kelsie and Drake pair up to protect the only life they know in a harsh and unforgiving world. They must each come to grips with his abilities, her secrets, and their mixed feelings for each other. Will they make it? Or will the very foundations of their lives be ripped from beneath them.
I like the re-covering for Whisper Walker much better than the first cover. Not only does it match the second cover, but it accurately portrays the mystery of the story. Okay, and the guy on the cover is pretty cute, too ;-)
