It's live!! Cover Reveal: Traitor Angels by Anne Blankman + Giveaway (International)

Hi, YABCers!

Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for TRAITOR ANGELS by Anne Blankman, releasing May 3, 2016 from Balzer+Bray/HarperCollins. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Anne:

 
Hello YABC! I am thrilled to share with you the cover of TRAITOR ANGELS, a standalone romantic historical adventure. About ten years ago, I was daydreaming during English class when I noticed something strange about the poem we were studying. John Milton’s famous epic, Paradise Lost, is supposed to be about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden—but it features one character who shouldn’t be there: Galileo, one of the most well-known scientists in history. How weird, I thought. I wonder if Milton included Galileo as some sort of secret message to his readers. From this initial question, TRAITOR ANGELS evolved into an adventure that includes a scavenger hunt stretching across Restoration Era England, clues concealed in literary masterpieces, a fierce girl skilled in weaponry, a mysterious Italian scientist, and a horrific conspiracy that, if it got out, could shake the foundations of civilization. 
 
When I saw the cover for the first time, I gasped aloud. The team at HarperCollins created an image that perfectly captures the romantic, mysterious feel of this story. Michelle Taormina designed the cover, and special effects artist Sean Freeman composed the letters and textured background. It’s everything I wanted for the book that has consumed the last decade of my life, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

About the Book
 
Six years have passed since England’s King Charles II returned from exile to reclaim the throne, ushering in a new era of stability for his subjects. 
 
Except for Elizabeth Milton. The daughter of notorious poet John Milton, Elizabeth has never known her place in this shifting world—except by her father’s side. By day she helps transcribe his latest masterpiece, the epic poem Paradise Lost, and by night she learns languages and sword fighting. Although she does not dare object, she suspects that he’s training her for a mission whose purpose she cannot fathom. 
 
Until one night the reason becomes clear: the king’s man arrive at her family’s country home to arrest her father. Determined to save him, Elizabeth follows his one cryptic clue and journeys to Oxford, accompanied by her father’s mysterious young houseguest, Antonio Vivani, a darkly handsome Italian scientist who surprises her at every turn. Funny, brilliant, and passionate, Antonio seems just as determined to protect her father as she is—but can she trust him with her heart? 
 
When the two discover that Milton has planted an explosive secret in the half-finished Paradise Lost—a secret the king and his aristocratic supporters are desperate to conceal—Elizabeth is faced with a devastating choice: cling to the shelter of her old life or risk cracking the code, unleashing a secret that could save her father…and tear apart the very fabric of society.

I love the cover, and was trying to figure out how it was done. I guess digitally. But being an old fashioned artist I was imagining how to do it.
And, l love the synopsis of the book. It sounds like a must-read!
