It's Live!! Cover Reveal: The Dark Intercept by Julia Keller + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE DARK INTERCEPT by Julia Keller, releasing November 7, 2017 from Tor Teen. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Julia:

Greetings, YABC!

So how do you feel about this brand-new, just-released cover of my new novel THE DARK INTERCEPT? Wait—WARNING! RED ALERT! Don't tell me your feelings. Because feelings are very, very, very dangerous! That is the essence of THE DARK INTERCEPT—how, in a future world, when the Earth is split in two between the haves and the have-nots, the government uses your feelings to control you. The Intercept collects those feelings—things like love and fear and joy—and then wields them like weapons. Only the courage of one headstrong, rebellious teen can save the Earths. So be careful what you feel . . . You never know who may be listening!

~Julia Keller (THE DARK INTERCEPT, Tor Teen)

THE DARK INTERCEPT

by Julia Keller
Release date: November 7, 2017
Publisher: Tor Teen
 ISBN: 9780765387622
 
About the Book

I can’t think of a better way to kick off 2017—a year already on probation for potential civil liberty violations—than to reveal the fantastic cover and an exclusive excerpt from The Dark Intercept.

This is the first book in an exhilarating new YA series by Julia Keller about two worlds—one transformed by disaster and another that rises from the wreckage. Illustrator and award-winning architect Dave Seeley has captured both of Keller’s future Earths beautifully.

The Dark Intercept follows intrepid sixteen-year-old Violet Crowley, the daughter of New Earth’s Founding Father, as she begins to question the virtue of a crime-prevention device called the Intercept. From a chip implanted beneath the skin, the Intercept monitors, records, and provokes emotion to keep the people of New Earth safe. As Violet uncovers long-buried secrets, the Intercept’s pervasive power seems darker than she ever knew.

The Dark Intercept is a thrilling, thought-provoking adventure that challenges the voluntary surrender of liberties for the perception of safety. Much like the device itself, The Dark Intercept might get under your skin.

Cover is cool and the story is interesting, considering its based on your feelings that's new i don't think I've heard of something like that.

The book sounds really cool, but is so far away! I'm gonna have to find a way to keep it on my mind. But I love the cover and the synopsis sounds really interesting and unique! Thanks for the opportunity!

I love the cover so much! This future sounds really creepy. If the Intercept controls people's emotions, who controls the Intercept? I'm guessing the answer isn't someone kind and loving! Lol!
