It’s live!! Cover Reveal: Starflight by Melissa Landers + Giveaway (International)



Hi, YABCers, and welcome to the second cover reveal of the week!

Today we’re super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for STARFLIGHT by Melissa Landers, releasing February 2, 2016 from Disney Hyperion. Before we get to the cover, here’s a note from Melissa:


Hey, YABC! Thanks for joining me for the cover reveal of STARFLIGHT, my upcoming standalone novel from Disney-Hyperion! Like everything I write, STARFLIGHT combines my two favorite things—sci-fi and romance—but there are no aliens this time, only humans. (Sorry, Aelyx.) This cover is very different from the Alienated books but striking in its own way. And the final jacket will be enhanced with gold foiling, which should be gorgeous! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
~ Melissa Landers (STARFLIGHT, Disney Hyperion)

About the Book


Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She’s so desperate to reach the realm that she’s willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.
When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he’s been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world–and each other–the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe…
