Cover Reveal: TAINTED by A.E. Rought + Giveaway (International)
 
Time for another fabulous cover reveal! This time we have the pleasure of revealing A.E. Rought's TAINTED, the sequel to BROKEN
 
It's gor-ja-mous. Simply lovely. Ready to see it? First, here's a message from A.E. Rought:
 
Hi YABC!

My name is A.E. Rought, and I’m bouncy-puppy thrilled to be here today revealing the cover for TAINTED, my fast-paced, dark and angsty sequel to BROKEN. The wait for the cover was excruciating. I kept wondering, “Will it be like I picture? Will it have Alex? Will they get it right?” Then the image arrived, and BAM! I wanted to hug the screen, coo to the pretty. To say I love this cover is, well, a HUGE understatement. The artist Steven Wood blew me away, summing it all up in one image. It’s so perfect for the book it makes me a little giddy and gives me a dark grin every time I look at it. I hope y’all like it half as much as me!
 
~ A.E. Rought

I absolutely love the colors, the splintered glass, the light. What a haunting and intriguing cover. The Strange Chemistry covers always seem to hit it out of the park.
 
 
About the book:
 
Alex Franks believes the madness is behind them. With Ascension Labs under his direction and the forces threatening Emma’s life overcome, they have a chance at a normal life, and keeping his secrets safely buried.
 
But a shadow rises from Alex’s past, and she wants him back. Criminally brilliant, Hailey Westmore will stop at nothing to claim the boy she was meant to be with.
 
Without warning, Emma Gentry finds she cannot trust anything. Not her mind, her memory, not even herself. Tragic events and unexpected deaths stalk Alex and Emma, testing them in ways they would never imagine, and may not survive.
 
Alex carries a new secret, and a horrifying guilt that Hailey uses to her advantage. Emma’s life and sanity in the balance, and Alex may have created a monster…
