Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for Parallel (Annum Guard #3) by Meredith McCardle, releasing December 5, 2017. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Meredith:
Hi, YABC! I am so thrilled to show you the cover for PARALLEL, the third and final book in the Annum Guard series. I feel so lucky to have had the legendary Cliff Nielsen design the owl badge that's featured in all three Annum Guard covers, and I am eternally grateful to the mad talented Jay Aheer for designing the cover art for PARALLEL. (It's to die for!) As you may or may not know, the Annum Guard series is about a top secret wing of the government that can travel through time and change the past. Like the previous Annum Guard covers, PARALLEL's artwork gives some clues as to the historical missions Iris and crew go on in the book. So take a look and see if you have any guesses!
Ready to see?
Scroll, YABCers! Scroll!
Here it is!

PARALLEL (ANNUM GUARD #3)
By: Meredith McCardle
Release Date: December 5, 2017
Amanda Obermann, Code Name Iris, hasn’t had the easiest life. Her father, a corrupt government agent, died when she was a baby, and she was raised by her mentally unstable mother. She’s also a member of Annum Guard, a secret government organization that travels through time to alter the course of history. But on her last mission, Amanda made a horrible mistake. She traveled to the past and accidentally caused the death of her boyfriend Abe’s grandfather—completely erasing Abe from existence and launching herself into a parallel universe where her father is very much alive.
Desperate to set things right, Amanda is forced to go on the defensive. She must play a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with her own father as she navigates an unfamiliar Annum Guard in order to save Abe. But the further in she gets, the more she realizes that nothing is as it seems. Her father isn’t quite the monster she’d always assumed. Her mother is stable, healthy, and loving. She has real, genuine friends. Before she knows it, Amanda finds herself in an impossible predicament—stay and live the life she's always wanted, or return to her own timeline to give Abe the life he deserves?
In this gripping conclusion to the Annum Guard series, playing with time can have deadly consequences.
Meredith McCardle is an author and attorney. She spent a number of years living in Boston, which helped inspire the Annum Guard series. These days, she lives in Florida with her family, where she's traded coats and scarves for tank tops and flip flops. She's hard at work on her next projects.
