It's Live!! Cover Reveals: The Bounders Series: Earth Force Rising & The Tundra Trials (Monica Tesler) + Giveaway!!!

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for Earth Force Rising & The Tundra Trials by Monica Tesler, releasing December 13, 2016 from Simon & Schuster/Aladdin. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Monica:

 

Hi YABC! I'm so excited to share the new covers for the Bounders series, my middle grade science fiction adventure series from Simon & Schuster/Aladdin. The first book in the series released this past January and the second book, The Tundra Trials, comes out on December 13.

I didn't know what to expect when I learned that the series would be repackaged, and the paperback would be released with a new cover. But the team at Aladdin, including my incredible in-house designer Karin Paprocki, brought on illustrator Owen Richardson to create the new, action-packed look for the series. And the results are awesome!

In the process, Bounders became the series title, and the first book received a new episodic title, Earth Force Rising. The paperback will release on the same day as The Tundra Trials, the second book in the Bounders series. I hope the cool covers entice you to bound into these books! 

~Monica~

Earth Force Rising

by Monica Tesler

Release date: December 13, 2016

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

ISBN: 9781481445948

 

 

About the Book
 

Bounders have always known they were different, but they never suspected they were the key to saving Earth.

Jasper Adams is excited to join the Earth Force military agency as part of its first class of Bounders, a team of kids training to be elite astronauts. He can’t wait to connect with others like him and learn to  pilot spaceships that can travel across the galaxy in an instant. 

But when Jasper arrives at the space station, nothing is as it seems. Security is sky-high, and Jasper and his new friends soon realize that Earth Force has been keeping secrets—one of the biggest being a powerful, highly-classified technology that allows the Bounders to teleport through space without a ship. Only Bounders can use this tech, which leads Jasper to a sinister truth—humanity is facing a threat greater than any they’ve ever known, and Bounders are the ones standing between their planet and destruction.

Will Jasper and his friends rebel against Earth Force for hiding the truth, or fulfill their duty and fight for their planet? The fate of Earth may rest on their choice.

 

 

 

 

The Tundra Trials

by Monica Tesler

Release date: December 13, 2016

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

ISBN: 9781481445962

 

About the Book
 

Jasper learns that secrets can strain even the strongest bonds as the Bounders adventure continues in the Tundra Trials.

After discovering that Earth Force is waging a covert alien war, Jasper and his friends return to space and continue their training. This time, Earth Force brings them to the remote planet of Gulaga, where the cadets compete in the Tundra Trials: a grueling pod race across the planet’s frigid landscape.

But when their pod leader asks Jasper and Mira to secretly test a dangerous new technology that will take their Bounder abilities to the next level, the kids begin to suspect that there are rifts within Earth Force. The worst part? Jasper must keep the truth from everyone—even his own pod mates.

When Earth Force prepares for an attack against the aliens, the kids are tasked with a treacherous mission. With their loyalties torn, will Jasper and his friends once again fulfill their duty and fight for their planet? And if they do, will the secret tech work as planned or lead their enemies to their doorstep?

The covers match the synopses, which promise action, secrets, and so much at stake for these characters. This sounds like fun to read.
