TheDemonRace_Cover_Warwick-final-header

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for THE DEMON RACE by Alexandria Warwick, releasing September 18, 2018 from Wolf Publishing. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Alexandria: 

Hi, YABC! I'm thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for my YA fantasy debut, THE DEMON RACE. Fun fact: I'm also the cover's designer! >From the very beginning, I knew the cover would feature a solar eclipse in some way, and if you read the book, you'll find out why. As with writing, I had to get through multiple drafts before polishing the cover to a shine, but I'm really pleased with the final product, and I hope you are too. Enjoy!

~Alexandria

About the Book

A race across the desert.

An unimaginable prize.

It occurs once every thousand years: the Demon Race. A test of will and strength, it is a race across the Saraj, a fight for the prize of a lifetime. And it is the key to Namali Hafshar’s freedom.

When shy, seventeen-year-old Namali learns of her arranged marriage, she flees home and enters the Demon Race for the chance to change her fate. But to compete, she must cross the Saraj on a daeva, a shadow demon that desires its own reward: to infect her soul with darkness.

Namali soon learns the desert holds more dangers than meets the eye. The only person she can trust is Sameen, a kind competitor seeking his own destiny. As her affection for him grows, however, so too does the darkness in her heart.

In this race of men and demons, only one can win. But the price of winning might be more than Namali is willing to pay.

The cover immediately hooked me as I was scrolling through the main page, and it's currently the only book that I've clicked on, so I definitely love it
And the synopsis only makes me want to read the book even more! Why is Namali being forced into an arranged marriage? And to who? Is he a bad person? (I love the name Namali by the way).
Combined with the high-stakes, demons and Sameen who may, or may not, be as kind as he seems, I can't wait to read the book upon it's release!
Now all that's left is the long wait to find out Namali's fate, and I couldn't be more excited

I cannot wait to read and review this book! The cover is dark and mysterious and pulls you in to want to read the inside. The synopsis sounds like a tried and true YA story but with a fresh take on it. Demons, POC characters, romance? I'm sold!
