So, i’ve been a bad author and have been sitting on this pretty thing for a few weeks now. But now i can finally show it to you! I’m so excited because this is my favourite book of the trilogy and thus, my favourite cover of the series.
After i show you the cover, though, i’m going to tell you the concept behind the cover, and the meaning of the imagery and what it represents. Book covers are not all just pretty pictures, you know. Most of the time, they have meaning and a representation of an aspect of the story and themes in the book.
So, without further ado, here’s the blurb and cover for Rebellious Heart!
Four years after Skye became the youngest president in history, and returned precious resources to her people,
She had hoped this would mean the end of the war.
But there is still a threat.
An enemy once thought dead has returned from the grave to exact revenge, and he won’t rest until he gets what he wants.
In the quest to give herself some credibility despite her young age, and to defeat their enemy, Skye, Lukas and their friends devise a plan to distract their enemy using a decoy, while they go in for the kill.
But, when their plan goes south,
Lukas and Skye must do whatever it takes to save their people and the world from ruin.
Even if it means betraying those they love the most.
In the thrilling conclusion to the Molten Heart Saga,
When matters of the heart are concerned,
Risks will be taken.
She thought she’d found utopia. She was wrong.
When i approached Desiree, my designer, and told her what i wanted for this cover, i said i wanted the following: the sky to be either aqua or a vibrant blue, the buildings to look browner than previous covers, and for Skye to be in a special ops kinda outfit welding a gun. In the book, (don’t worry, i’ll try not to give too much away), Skye rebels from her duties as the youngest leader in New American history and joins the fight to protect her people and her world. I wanted her look to be representative of her rebellious nature and her actions in this book.
The colour of the skye also has special meaning. It represents hope for a utopia, for a better future for Skye and Lukas and the entire country. It’s a contrast to the brown skyscrapers at the bottom of the cover, which shows the world is still in turmoil. But Skye is willing to do whatever it takes to make the world better.
Rebellious Heart will be released September 30. You can pre-order your copy below:
