Cover Reveal: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund


+FOR DARKNESS SHOWS THE STARS+

+ BY DIANA PETERFREUND+

+RELEASED JUNE 12 2012+

Generations ago, a genetic experiment gone wrong—the Reduction—decimated humanity, giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology.

Eighteen-year-old Luddite Elliot North has always known her place in this caste system. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family’s estate over love. But now the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress and threatening Luddite control; Elliot’s estate is floundering; and she’s forced to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth—an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliott wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she abandoned him.

But Elliot soon discovers her childhood friend carries a secret—-one that could change the society in which they live…or bring it to its knees. And again, she’s faced with a choice: cling to what she’s been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she’s ever loved, even if she has lost him forever.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
I really like this cover! It really stood out to me in a good way! I love the background a lot as well and the synopsis sounds amazing! I really can’t wait to read it!

    Oh my goodness I love this cover, and would be so interested to read this story. It sounds right up my street…plus it made me think of Jane Austen's Persuasion (classic) and how the main character listened to family and gave up her own wants etc, and I loved Persuasion. Thanks for the heads up on this novel. I already want it!

  2. Hi, KR. Actually, you're in luck — it is a retelling of Persuasion. It says so in the last paragraph of the description, which appears to be cut off here. That's why I named the main character Elliot. Thanks for blogging about the cover, Mariya. I hope you like the book!

    I am in love with this cover! Even if the blurb didn't sound so interesting and original, I'd still pick up this book just to have the shiny cover on my keeper shelf! It's so beautiful! I love color theme and everything!

  4. If Diana Peterfreund wasn't already one of my favorite authors, I'd still pick up this book because the cover is SO stunning! Wow. Thanks for sharing!
