Cynthia Hand was able to reveal the cover for her second novel, and sequel to UNEARTHLY, on her blog recently. Unfortunately the cover had been leaked so it wasn't brand new to everyone, but it was to me! The title of the second novel in the Unearthly series is HALLOWED, and here is the awesome cover:
I love the blue, it's a really nice shade. And, like Cynthia commented on her blog, "it will be all silvery and shiny like the UNEARTHLY cover wass, so this image won't really do it justice." I really love the font that is used for the title. It's so swirly and curvy and pretty.
And, as I usually do, here is the cover for UNEARTHLY so you can compare:
I'll stick the synopsis here at the end so those who haven't read UNEARTHLY don't have to worry about reading spoilers.
**Warning, SPOILERS if you have not read UNEARTHLY yet!**
For months part-angel Clara Gardner trained to face the raging forest fire from her visions and rescue the alluring and mysterious Christian Prescott from the blaze. But nothing could prepare her for the fateful decisions she would be forced to make that day, or the startling revelation that her purpose—the task she was put on earth to accomplish—is not as straightforward as she thought. Now, torn between her increasingly complicated feelings for Christian and her love for her boyfriend, Tucker, Clara struggles to make sense of what she was supposed to do the day of the fire. And, as she is drawn further into the world of part angels and the growing conflict between White Wings and Black Wings, Clara learns of the terrifying new reality that she must face: Someone close to her will die in a matter of months. With her future uncertain, the only thing Clara knows for sure is that the fire was just the beginning.
