It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh + Giveaway (US Only)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for REBEL SEOUL by Axie Oh, releasing September 2017 from Tu Books, an imprint of Lee & Low Books. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Axie:

Hi YABC! Thank you so much for having me here today to reveal the cover of REBEL SEOUL! I’m so pleased with this cover for many reasons: an Asian boy, front and center, the cool juxtaposition of old and futuristic architecture, and also, the colors, red and blue, remind me of the South Korean flag! All that I asked of my publisher—Tu Books—with regards to the cover, they delivered, and I am so grateful for their support and continued enthusiasm. Special thanks to the cover’s illustrator, Sebastien Hue, and to the designer, Elizabeth Casal, for creating a cover that conveys the rebellious spirit of my novel so beautifully. Again, much love to the YABC readers, and I hope you look forward to REBEL SEOUL! 

~Axie Oh (REBEL SEOUL, Tu Books)

About the Book

EAST ASIA, 2199. After a great war, the East Pacific is in ruins. In brutal Neo Seoul, where status comes from success in combat, ex-gang member Lee Jaewon is a talented pilot rising in the academy’s ranks. Abandoned as a child in the slums of Old Seoul by his rebel father, Jaewon desires only to escape his past.

When Jaewon is recruited into the most lucrative weapons development division in Neo Seoul, he is eager to claim his best shot at military glory. But the mission becomes more complicated when he meets Tera, a test subject in the government’s supersoldier project. Tera was trained for one purpose: to pilot one of the lethal God Machines, massive robots for a never-ending war.

With secret orders to report on Tera, Jaewon becomes Tera’s partner, earning her reluctant respect. But as respect turns to love, Jaewon begins to question his loyalty to an oppressive regime that creates weapons out of humans. As the project prepares to go public amidst rumors of a rebellion, Jaewon must decide where he stands—as a soldier of the Republic, or a rebel of the people.

Pacific Rim meets Korean action dramas in this mind-blowing, New Visions Award-winning science fiction debut.
