We were thrilled to host the cover reveal of CJ Redwine's DEFIANCE last year, and now we're thrilled to bring you the cover of the sequel, DECEPTION. But before we get to the goods, here's a message from CJ:

Hello YABC!

I’m so excited to reveal the cover for DECEPTION, the sequel to DEFIANCE. It’s fierce, poignant, and just plain awesome. The design team at Harper Collins knocked it out of the park. I didn’t think they could out-do the cover they gave to DEFIANCE, but they did! Without further ado, I give you the amazing cover for DECEPTION.

~ CJ

I didn't think they could out-do the first cover either, but this is WOWZA pretty. I love how Defiance had a dark purple hue to it, and this one has a dark blue. Great contrast for the series, but they fit together so well. Now I can't wait to see which color they go with for the final book in the trilogy. 

And now for the synopsis you guys have been dying to read:

Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken over her father's death, needs Logan more than ever. With their ragged group of survivors struggling to forge a future, it's up to Logan to become the leader they need—with Rachel by his side. Under constant threat from rival Carrington's army, who is after the device that controls the Cursed One, the group decides to abandon the ruins of their home and take their chances in the Wasteland.



But soon their problems intensify tenfold: someone—possibly inside their ranks—is sabotaging the survivors, picking them off one by one. The chaos and uncertainty of each day puts unbearable strain on Rachel and Logan, and it isn't long before they feel their love splintering. Even worse, as it becomes clear that the Commander will stop at nothing to destroy them, the band of survivors begins to question whether the price of freedom may be too great—and whether, hunted by their enemies and the murderous traitor in their midst, they can make it out of the Wasteland alive.


In this daring sequel to Defiance, with the world they once loved forever destroyed, Rachel and Logan must decide between a life on the run and standing their ground to fight.

 

I don't know about you, but I cannot wait for DECEPTION to hit shelves. And hey, maybe you won't have to wait if you win the very first ARC from CJ:
