Cover Reveal: THE HISTORIANS by Trisha Leigh + Giveaway (International)

Remember the amazing covers of Trisha Leigh's THE LAST YEAR series? We sure do. Who could forget how lovely they are and how perfectly they all fit together?

Today, I get to reveal the cover of Trisha's NEW book from her second series: THE HISTORIANS. It's another slam dunk, I can tell you that much. Ready to see it??? First, here's a message from Trisha:

 

I’m thrilled to be revealing the cover for the first book in my second series, and even more excited to be working with my first love—history. The Historians mixes two things I adore—a futuristic, Firefly-type universe and the stunning moments that have shaped human history to this point. I hope you all are excited, too!

Isn't it gorgeous?! First of all, I love the colors. Rich, and golden, and perfect. Secondly, I *love* that the story might be set in Egypt, or at least a portion of it. Third? I LOVELOVELOVE what she's wearing, her glasses, and her wrist tattoo or mark, which all give a nod to more modern times, while juxtaposed with the ancient feel of Egypt and the tagline, "Protect the past." There are so many little details here that I keep discovering. The best covers seem to be the ones you can keep staring at for a long time and never get bored.
 
 
About the book:
 

If you could learn the identity of your one true love—even
knowing you’d probably never meet—would you do it?


Years have passed since refugees from a ruined earth took to space, eventually terraforming a new system of planets. Science has not only made the leaps necessary to allow time travel, but the process engineered a strange side effect—predicting people’s one true love.

The problem? If only one soul ever has been born, or will be born, that perfectly matches yours, the chances the two will exist in the same time and place are almost zero. It’s rare enough that the predictions have been reduced to a game, a parlor trick, and no one expects a happily ever after with their Kindred.

If you had the chance to meet your one true love—even knowing
you couldn’t be together—would you go?


Sixteen-year-old Kaia Vespasian is an apprentice to the Historians—a group charged with using time travel to document the triumphs and failures of the past—and can’t resist a peek at her long-dead one true love. Before she knows it, she’s broken every rule in the book, and the consequences of getting caught could be disastrous. 

If you could save your one true love from a terrible, untimely
death, would you be able to resist?


When Oz Truman, a fellow apprentice, discovers Kaia’s secret, he shows her the predicted trajectories that could result her from altering the history of ancient Egypt. They prove that if Kaia doesn’t ensure her Kindred dies as he’s supposed to, the effect on the present will be catastrophic. 

Would you have the strength to watch them die?

But when Kaia notices Oz popping up in historical archives where he doesn’t belong, she suspects he has a secret of his own—and the conspiracy she uncovers breaks worse rules than traveling to ancient Egypt to meet a boy. 

If Kaia’s experience with her one true love has taught her anything, it’s that no alteration to history comes without consequences. The Historians trained her to observe and record the past, but Kaia never guessed she might have to protect it—especially not from the people she trusts.

 
 
 
 
 
About Trisha Leigh:
 
b2ap3_thumbnail_Edited3.jpg
Raised by a family of ex-farmers and/or almost rocks stars from Southeastern Iowa, I’ve always loved to tell stories. After graduating from Texas Christian University with a degree in Film, I began to search for a way to release the voices in my head. When I attempted my first YA novel, which would become Whispers in Autumn, I was hooked. I knew then my heart lay with telling stories about and for young adults, and for anyone who loves to read and recapture those fleeting “first” moments.

The Historians gives me the chance to bring my love of all things historical to the page.

My spare time is now spent reviewing television and movies, spending time with my large, loud, loving family, reading any book that falls into my hands, and being dragged into the fresh air by my dogs Yoda and Jilly.

Whoa, that's an amazing cover. It reminds me of classic sci-fi without looking dated. I really like the time travel premise. It opens up a lot of possibilities with the love story. Definitely on my TBR.

I LOVE the cover. From everything to the pyramids in the background to the pocket watch on the bridge. There are so many different elements from the past/the future in this cover and they work SO WELL together. I wouldn't mind having a poster with this cover on it. Also, what really sold me on the synopsis was a "Firefly-type universe". I'm a HUGE fan of Firefly, and the story sounds like something I would love to read.
