It's live!! Cover Reveal: Lark Rising by Sandra Waugh + Giveaway (US only)

 

We have another cover reveal for you this week, YABCers!

Today we're celebrating the cover for LARK RISING by Sandra Waugh releasing September 23, 2014 from Random House Books for Young Readers. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Sandra:

 

Hello YABC!

Once upon a time a hawk lit upon my porch railing. We eyed one another for awhile, and LARK RISING was born. So it is thrilling to finally reveal this cover -- such a hauntingly beautiful capturing of the journey from imagination to writing to book. Lush... rich... oh yay, hooray and WOW! My most heartfelt thanks to the wonderful digital artist, Marcela Bolivar (so far away in Cali, Colombia!) for her work and to the team at Random House for this inspired choice of artist! I keep getting lost in the visual details until I just have to dive in for the story.  I hope you all do, too!

About the Book

Lark has foreseen two things—she will fall for a young man with sage green eyes, and he will kill her.

Sixteen-year-old Lark Carew is happiest close to home, tending her garden and gathering herbs for medicines. But when her Sight warns her that troll-like Troths will soon invade her village, Lark is summoned on a journey to seek help from the legendary Riders of Tarnec. Little does she suspect that one of the Riders, Gharain, is the very man who has haunted her visions. Or that the people of Tarnec have called her there for another reason: Lark is the Guardian of Life, the first of four Guardians who must awaken their powers to recover four stolen amulets. Together, the amulets—Life, Death, Dark, and Light—keep the world in Balance. To take back the Life amulet, Lark will have to discover her true inner strength and give in to a love that she swears will be her downfall.

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_sandra-waugh-final.jpgAbout the Author

Sandra Waugh grew up in an old house full of crowded bookshelves, in walking distance of an old library that allowed her to drag home a sack of six books at a time. It goes without saying, then, that she fell in love with an old house in Litchfield County, Connecticut, because of its many bookshelves, and she lives there now with her husband, two sons, and a dog who snores. Loudly. Lark Rising is her first novel. For more information, reveries, and an author blog, visit sandrawaugh.com.

The cover reminds me of Lord of the Rings, which I do love. I am very excited to read about a girl who is comfortable at home but will have to go on an adventure to become the Guardian of Life!
