Halloween Giveaway: Between the Spark and the Burn by April Tucholke

 

Boo!

Today we're celebrating the beautiful cover of BETWEEN THE SPARK AND THE BURN by April Tucholke, available August 2014 from Dail/Penguin, with a CREEPTASTIC Halloween giveaway! The cover is so creepy and pretty, I can't wait to show it to you. But before we get to the goods, here's a message from April:

 

Why hello there, YABC. Here is the cover for Between the Spark and the Burn, sequel to Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. This cover has a cool font, like Devil, and feels very old school Stephen King to me. But maybe that’s because I see the world through Shining-colored glasses…

About the Book

The conclusion to Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, this gothic thriller romance with shades of Stephen King and Daphne du Maurier is a must-read for fans of Beautiful Creatures and Anna Dressed in Blood.

Freddie once told me that the Devil created all the fear in the world.

But then, the Devil once told me that it's easier to forgive someone for scaring you than for making you cry.

The problem with River West Redding was that he'd done both to me.

The crooked-smiling liar River West Redding, who drove into Violet's life one summer day and shook her world to pieces, is gone. Violet and Neely, River's other brother, are left to worry—until they catch a two a.m. radio program about strange events in a distant mountain town. They take off in search of River but are always a step behind, finding instead frenzied towns, witch hunts, and a wind-whipped island with the thrum of something strange and dangerous just under the surface. It isn't long before Violet begins to wonder if Neely, the one Redding brother she thought trustworthy, has been hiding a secret of his own . . .

Between the Spark and the Burn is the heart-pounding conclusion to the “lavishly rendered, darkly romantic, and beautifully unsettling [Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea.]”—Melissa Marr

 

Our Thoughts
I absolutely loved Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and I loved spending time in Violet's old, ruined mansion. But I must admit, the idea of traveling around with Violet and Neely is irresistible to me. I need this book now. And the cover is so striking. It feels cold and adventurous, yet also quite a bit scary. When the Redding brothers are around, you can't help but feel that cold chill up your spine mixed with a bit of heat... Perfect.

I'm torn about the cover. The super stylized font is a little out there for my taste, but I've seen far worse.

I agree with Annachiara about the type, but I do like how "burn" is accented in orange. It's like a slow upside-down burn, and contrasts well with the icy/winter background.
