Hey everyone! This is my first time blogging about a book cover reveal and I am so happy to say that it’s for my very good friend, Sara (from What A Nerd Girl Says)! It will be her debut novel and is titled, The Awakened!
Isn’t the cover beautiful?
I’ve seen how hard Sara worked on this book and have always believed she would get published one day. Now that day is almost here and I’m just so happy and so proud of her! I also had the opportunity to read the book several months ago, and I can honestly say it’s really good. Great blend of action, horror (I still can’t get over some particular scenes), and romance.
Here’s more about the book and the author herself!
Zoey Valentine is concerned with two things: surviving the multitude of self-defense classes her dad makes her take and avoiding Ash Matthews.
That is, until the Z virus hits, wiping out a third of the population in a matter of weeks. If that weren’t frightening enough, the bodies of the victims disappear and suddenly reappear, awakened from their dead state. They’re faster, smarter, and they work together to get the one thing they crave, human flesh.
The United States is in a panic and then the government decides the unthinkable: to bomb every major city overrun with the awakened.
Now Zoey is on the run, with her dad and Ash, desperate to find a place of safety amongst the ruined remains of the country.
Publisher: OfTomes Publishing
Release Date: December 1st, 2015 in Kindle and paperback. Pre-order is only available for the kindle edition.
Be sure to add it to your Goodreads TBR list!
Congratulations again, my friend. Can’t wait for the release party!
