Hey YABC, I'm so excited to be here today to share the cover of my upcoming YA Fantasy, steeped in mythology, love, and lore, Things That Should Stay Buried. The beautiful cover was designed by Melissa Stevens of The Illustrated Author Design Services. I think we can all agree that she is amazingly talented and captured the vibe of the book perfectly. I hope you love it as much as I do. And for you book sniffers out there - I'm not judging but you know who you are - it even smells amazing, y'all! ️

About the Book

Some destinies are written in the stars. Others must be bought with blood… 

The Zodia are real. Clawing their way from a long-forgotten tomb, they emerge, ravenous to claim everyone born under their star signs. Plotting to resurrect kingdoms no human knew existed, they are driven by a hunger for vengeance against the one who buried them: Aries. 

Larken is a natural born sprinter, but even she can’t outrun the darkness closing in. A shelter-in-place order has been issued, causing widespread panic. Some brush the alarm off as a drill, until people begin to disappear... vanishing without a trace. Left with only one option, Larken’s brother does what he must to save her life... and calls forth Aries. 

Considered a traitor by his own kind, only Aries has the power to stand against the Zodia. But he can’t do it alone. Mystically bonded to Larken, the pair must band together for the fight to come if either hope to make it out alive. Neither anticipated the passion that would ignite between them. Yet, in a world suddenly thrust into chaos, it may be the key to their survival. 

The Zodia are out for blood with their attentions inexplicably focused on Larken. When long buried truths finally come to light, will their love be their salvation or their curse?
