Double Cover Reveal and Giveaway: Warrior and Her Dark Curiosity

Double Cover Reveal and Giveaway: Warrior and Her Dark Curiosity

Last year we did a joint cover reveal for Ellen Oh's PROPHECY and Megan Shepherd's THE MADMAN'S DAUGHTER. So when the covers of their sequels came in, we thought we'd do another joint reveal. I can't wait for you guys to see them!
 

First, here's a message from Megan:

Hello YABC! Last year, Ellen and I were blown away by the response to our joint cover reveal. So many people checked out our covers that we crashed the site…repeatedly! (Sorry, Mandy!). So this year we knew we wanted to come back and share the covers to our sequels with you, and thank you for all the great support and enthusiasm over the last year. I was so thrilled with the cover for THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER that I had no idea how the HarperCollins design team would top it for HER DARK CURIOSITY…I love what they’ve done with keeping the red sash but making the dress black, and using a foreboding London skyline. I get chills just looking at it, and especially knowing about all the dark secrets inside that I hope you all will love, too!
 
~ Megan Shepherd
 
 
And a message from Ellen:

When I first saw the cover for Warrior, I think my mouth dropped open in awe. I was blown away by how beautiful it was. I think that HarperCollins in general makes beautiful covers (look at Megan’s!) and I loved my Prophecy cover, but Warrior took my admiration to an entirely new level. I bow down to my art design team at Harper. They are clearly brilliant people. I couldn’t even tell you what I love most about my cover because it comes together in perfect harmony. The rich gorgeous color, the intricate and beautifully detailed dagger, and the mysterious kumiho (9 tailed fox demon from Korean mythology) all invoke the perfect feeling for WARRIOR. If ever there was a cover for an author to be in love with, this would be it! 

~ Ellen Oh

Here's WARRIOR by Ellen Oh!

First an outcast, now a hero.

But her fight rages on.

Kira, the yellow-eyed demon slayer who fiercely protected her kingdom—and the crown prince—has been proclaimed the Dragon Musado of the prophecy. With the defeated the evil shaman.

But it wasn’t enough.  

Hansong is in chaos. The Demon Lord’s minions have infiltrated the city, treason is brewing among the military ranks, and Kira is buried by the overwhelming loss of her parents. She’s also plagued by the annoying feelings that blossom whenever she’s around Jaewon. But she is determined that nothing will stop her from finding the second treasure needed to fulfill the Dragon King’s prophecy. Not even the army of half-breed demons hot on their trail. If only she could learn to trust others…

Her father always said one person can change the world. Will it be Kira?

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_ellen_145.jpgAbout the author:

Ellen Oh is an adjunct college instructor and former entertainment lawyer who one day picked up a Genghis Khan biography and was never quite the same again. It was the start of an obsessive fascination with ancient Asian history that led to years of researching, which culminated in writing Prophecy, her first novel. She also loves martial arts films, K-pop, K-dramas, and cooking shows, and she thinks the Last Airbender series was the best animated show ever created. Originally from New York City, Ellen lives in Bethesda, Maryland, with her husband and three daughters and is always on the hunt for a decent bagel.

And now HER DARK CURIOSITY by Megan Shepherd!

** Visitors, if you choose to share this cover, please include a courtesy link back to this post and giveaway **

 

To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father's island—and the secrets she left behind. Now, back in London once more, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy—though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her.

As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer—Juliet will be lucky to escape alive.

With inspiration from Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this is a tantalizing mystery about the hidden natures of those we love and how far we’ll go to save them from themselves.

I haven't read the first in either of these series yet, but they're definitely on the top of my TBR list. Her Dark Curiosity looks, well, dark and I love that kind of thing. And high fantasy is my favorite genre, so I'm really excited for Warrior as well.
