Squee! I am excited to share the cover for Emma Pass’s THE FEARLESS — a post-apocalyptic thriller for young adults, coming 3rd April 2014 from Corgi Children’s/Random House Children’s Publishers (UK) and early 2015 from Delacorte/Random House (US). I’ve been lucky enough to beta-read this novel for Emma and I can tell you that it is INCREDIBLE. Here’s the book description:
The Fearless. An army, powered by an incredible new serum that makes each soldier stronger, sharper, faster than their enemies. Intended as a force for good, the serum has a terrible side-effect – anyone who takes it is stripped of all humanity, empathy, love. And as the Fearless sweep through the country, forcing the serum on anyone in their path, society becomes a living nightmare.
Cass remembers the night they passed through her village. Her father was Altered. Her mother died soon after. All Cass has left is her little brother – and when Jori is snatched by the Fearless and taken to their hellish lair, Cass must risk everything to get him back.
It’s a super super creepy, action-packed adventure that’ll have you hooked from page one, believe me. And now for the cover reveal…
Isn’t it amazing? I love how it ties in so well with ACID even though they are both stand-alone novels. The colours are beautiful, and the girl on the cover is so Cass. I can’t wait for the release! Let me know what you think of the cover in the comments, or tweet Emma (@EmmaPass) to tell her your thoughts!
UPDATE 04/10/2013: The colouring of the cover has been altered. The fiery backdrop gives the book a much more post-apocalyptic feel. It’s incredibly eye-catching. I love it!
