It's Live!! Cover Reveal: Exo by Fonda Lee + Giveaway (US/Canada)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the new cover reveal for EXO by Fonda Lee, releasing January 31, 2017 from Scholastic. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Fonda:

Welcome to the cover reveal for EXO, my upcoming science fiction action novel. I’m excited to be here because I’ve been dying to share this with you. I really must thank the designer, Phil Falco at Scholastic for giving EXO a cover that looks like it should be the movie poster for an epic summer action blockbuster. I especially love the symmetry of the title and all the texture details: the vertical striping of the orange flare, the steely lattice background, the pixellated font of my name and the tag line. In short, this cover screams awesome at me so hard that I feel a burning temptation to pick it up and read it right away. Considering that I wrote the damn thing and have read it more than a dozen times already, that’s really saying something. I hope you like it. 
~Fonda Lee (EXO, Scholastic)

About the Book

It’s been a century of peace since Earth became a colony of an alien race with far reaches into the galaxy. Some die-hard extremists still oppose alien rule on Earth, but Donovan Reyes isn’t one of them. His dad holds the prestigious position of Prime Liaison in the collaborationist government, and Donovan’s high social standing along with his exocel (a remarkable alien technology fused to his body) guarantee him a bright future in the security forces. That is, until a routine patrol goes awry and Donovan’s abducted by the human revolutionary group Sapience, determined to end alien control.

When Sapience realizes whose son Donovan is, they think they’ve found the ultimate bargaining chip . But the Prime Liaison doesn’t negotiate with terrorists, not even for his own son.  Left in the hands of terrorists who have more uses for him dead than alive, the fate of Earth rests on Donovan’s survival. Because if Sapience kills him, it could spark another intergalactic war. And Earth didn’t win the last one . . .

I love the symmetry and font. I find it suits the synopsis because earth, although it has symmetry, doesn't appear perfect before taken over by the alien race.
