Hello, dear readers! A very exciting post today, as I have the great pleasure of helping with the cover reveal of The Illusionists, the sequel to the wonderful Fearsome Dreamer by Laure Eve. And if you haven't read Fearsome Dreamer already, then you'd better get on it (here are some links to places you can buy it: Waterstones, Amazon, Book Depo or your local bookshop or wherever!. I'm not saying you should buy it right now but that's exactly what I'm saying. Seriously, it's realllly good).
Anyway, yes, book cover for The Illusionists!
(wait for it)
ISN'T IT PRETTY?!
A shocking new world. A dangerous choice. Two futures preparing to collide...
Having left her soulmate White behind her in Angle Tar, Rue is trying to make sense of her new and unfamiliar life in World. Its technologically advanced culture is as baffling as is it thrilling to her, and Rue quickly realises World's fascination with technology can have intoxicating and deadly consequences.
She is also desperately lonely. And so is White. Somehow, their longing for each other is crossing into their dreams, dreams that begin to take increasingly strange turns as they appear to give Rue echoes of the future. Then the dreams reveal the advent of something truly monstrous, and with it the realisation that Rue and White will be instrumental in bringing about the most incredible and devastating change in both World and Angle Tar.
But in a world where Life is a virtual reality, where friends can become enemies overnight and where dreams, the future, and the past are somehow merging together, their greatest challenge of all may be to survive. (from Goodreads)
Yeah, I'm a little bit in love with it, not going to lie. I love the artwork on these covers (Kali Ciesmier is the artist, if you are interested). Like, I know that some people aren't too keen on illustrated covers, but I adore them and I think that the covers for these books are especially wonderful. Also, I am just really excited about The Illusionists. I love the title. I love the blurb. I love the cover. I do not love the fact that I have to wait until July (JULY!) to read it, but I'm just going to have to deal with that.
What do you think? Do you love it? You love it, don't you. Good.
