One of my favorite parts of finding a new book to read is spotting a cover that I love. It’s like meeting the eyes of an alluring soul from across a ballroom floor. You lock eyes, and you just know they’re the one you’ve been waiting for.
Dramatic? Perhaps. But you can’t hold it against a publisher for being a little dramatic when we talk about books. I mean… That’s basically our entire shtick.
VILE & BLESSED by A H Serrano’s cover reveal is coming September 5, 2020. And at risk of continuing the dramatics, here’s a tease of what’s to come.
Just one more tease? Here’s a quick synopsis of the novel:
A Cursed Existence. An Insidious Spirit. A Hidden Land.
There has never been an Anmerilian born without ability.
Never, until River Kennry.
River has no place in a world where worth is measured by the power of one’s ability. He is an anomaly and an outcast, afflicted by an ailment no one can see or explain. Caught in the unrelenting hold of his government, he falls further into the pit of hopelessness as he wrestles with the mysteries of his past.
After a fated meeting with a cryptic stranger, River realizes the only way to uncover his past is to return to the Institute—the very place that scarred and violated him. And if he goes back, it could mean forfeiting his life.
But could everyone be wrong about him? Though he remains untouched by power, there is something inside him. Something alive and entangled with secrets that could upset the balance of everything his generation has ever known to be true.
You’ve caught eyes across the room. Now all you have to do is stick with us until September 5, 2020 so we can introduce you to this beautiful cover art.
