It’s Live!! Cover Reveal: FORGOTTEN, (Book 3 in the House of Night Other World Series) by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Forgotten_YA-500x700-final

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

FORGOTTEN, (Book 3 in the House of Night Other World Series) by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast,

releasing October 29, 2019 from Blackstone Publishing!

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the designer:

Working with P.C. and Kristen Cast is always a delightful experience. A few months before the manuscript is finalized, they visit our office to discuss their ideas in person. They not only bring inspiration but enormous positive energy with their humorous banter and it helps ease us into the design process. P.C. always has a particular scene in mind which she vividly describes as I rough out images on a sketchpad. A follow-up email arrives shortly after, with a passage from the manuscript describing the scene in more detail: the mood, what the character is doing, what they are wearing and where the scene is taking place.

The first cover in the House of Night Other World series, Loved, Zoey Redbird is performing a ritual in front of a stone wall, standing in a pool of blood with snow falling around her. Her back is turned to the audience allowing the reader to decide her appearance and how they feel her marks should look. Fans of the series know how important these marks, or tattoos, on her face and body are to the series. They are popularly drawn and shared on social media. Most distinctive are the marks on Zoey’s face depicting the power she wields over a full scope elements. I used descriptions from the authors combing a mix of runes, alchemical symbols, and organic shapes into the design to illustrate these magickal symbols. This pattern was then highlighted on the series jackets in transparent gloss. It is meant to shimmer in the light, evoking a sense that the incantations are being recited. The crescent moon, a symbol particular to the House of Night, also needed a prominent place in the design not only to tie-in with the previous books but to also give a fresh look to this revisited series. We used it throughout the interior book design as well as incorporating it into each title treatment.

Our original design plan has transformed as we progressed through the series. To emphasize the Other World, the covers were to be dominantly white, the reverse of the black color theme on the original series, and the colors were to change for each title. However, we re-examined this idea for Lost, as multiple colors felt too playful for the content and it felt more appropriate to leave the red as a through-line for this vampire series. Now with the appearance of Nefret on the cover of the third installment, Forgotten, we had to examine our plans once again. The description PC sent made for a lot of fun visualization and helped speed up the overall process. It didn’t seem fitting to have a vengeful and ruthless character performing in the Light. She is instead posed as if to embark upon a dark venture. Her arms are held low gathering power. Black tendrils carry her across the water. And something evil curves around her body, cloaked only by Darkness. These kinds of horror-based descriptions create a lot of fertile ground for illustration and make my job easy.

I have really enjoyed working on this series and look forward to seeing how book four rounds out the series!

FORGOTTEN, (Book 3 in the House of Night Other World Series)

Release date: October 29, 2019

Publisher: Blackstone Publishing

About the Book

Before he was freed by Neferet, Kalona was imprisoned within the earth for centuries because of the Darkness in his heart. But what happened to the Other World’s Kalona? It’s as though he’s been forgotten, or maybe he never existed at all …

In the present, Other Neferet may have left her House of Night, but she has far from given up her goal of immortality and world domination. As she operates in secret to gain access to Old Magick, the new High Priestess, Anastasia Langford, works toward peace and acceptance for the vampyres of the Other World. But just as Other Kevin’s broken heart will take time to heal, peace in that world will also take time and work—and not all of the Other World vampyres want peace. After all, why should they return to being shunned by humans, especially when they’ve had a taste of how it feels to be in power?

Meanwhile, Zoey is desperate to help rid the Other World of Neferet once and for all, and not knowing what’s going on over there is eating away at her. But, as the Nerd Herd warns, it’s far too dangerous to call on Old Magick time and again. As a distraction, she throws herself into her work and attempts to bring the humans and vampyres of Tulsa closer together with the first human-vampyre swim meet in history! It’s too bad that something always seems to go wrong whenever the stakes are high.

What happens when worlds clash and powers that should be left alone are awakened? Can Other Kevin and his world heal from the wounds Neferet continues to inflict? Can Old Magick ever truly be harnessed and used for good? Or will Darkness extinguish Light and leave our heroes broken, hopeless, and as forgotten as Kalona of the Silver Wings? Don’t miss this second to last volume in the House of Night Other World saga!

The cover is so beautiful. I always had a bit of a struggle trying to imagine Neferet's tendrils and this really helps me to understand how to picture them. Not going to lie, I didn't read the synopsis because I like to not know what's going to happen when reading a new book in a series I love. I've read every book in the hon series and I already know I'm going to love this one as well. I'm super excited for it to be released

Looking at this cover, I sense mysterious. We saw how Neferet was back in Zoey’s world throughout the series but in Other Kevin’s world, I feel like things will be completely different. Yes, Neferet in both worlds wants the same thing but as we know from the first two books, some things are opposite such as who is alive and who isn’t in one world and the other. Perhaps Neferet is different from the other? Also gives a dark feeling just by looking at her black tendrils, the wicked way of the looks. Showing her glowing dark corrupting her and the power for which she holds. From looking at the cover, I believe we will be seeing something that we never seen before and the Other World will bring a whole new meaning.

The cover is revealing. It shows the darkness crawling within Neferet but also how Neferet hides within the darkness because she can't face the light. She uses the darkness to her advantage for evil things. She hides from the light because of horrible things done to her in her past and she filled herself with hatred and darkness to overcome the pain. The island in the background shows the innocence of the island and how the island is not aware of the imposing presence.

I love this cover! It is sensible and amazing. In showing Other Neferet like this we get to see the power she weilds over Darkness. It makes us wonder if Zoey and Other Kevin can overcome this obstacle as well.
