ISN'T IT PRETTY?????????
They also released a short tease about the story (which does contain a *slight* LTSF spoiler, so if you haven't read book 1, be careful!):
Vane Weston is haunted. By the searing pull of his bond to Audra. By the lies he's told to cover for her disappearance. By the treacherous winds that slip into his mind, trying to trap him in his worst nightmares. And as his enemies grow stronger, Vane doesn’t know how much longer he can last on his own.I know that's not much of a tease--but the book doesn't come out until 3/4/14 so we can't give TOO much away yet. In the meantime, if you would like to make me very happy, you can add it to your Goodreads shelf HERE.
And I have gotten quite a lot of questions about the cover, so I thought I'd go ahead and tackle the top three of them today:
1. Is this cover based on a scene in the book (like LET THE SKY FALL's cover)?
YES! Though just like the cover of LTSF, there were a couple of creative liberties taken with the scene--but nothing important.
2. Audra's red dress! How? Why? When?
Well, I can't really answer this without giving away spoilers, but I promise, this isn't a case of "a pretty dress for the sake of having a pretty dress on the cover." Audra really does wear that dress at some point in the book, for very specific reasons--and those of you who know her, know that she's uncomfortable for every second of it. Vane, on the other hand, is quite a fan. ;)
3. HOW CAN I GET AN ARC???????????
Not *really* a cover related question--but I still adore you all for your enthusiasm. :) Honestly, I am so honored that you guys are excited to read LTSB and I can't wait for you to be able to. But at the moment, *I* don't even have ARCs. I hear it's up on Edelweiss, and that a few people have been approved, but that's one of those things I have nothing to do with and no knowledge of how it works. And I have gone ahead and added an ARC request form to this blog (you can access it HERE) but again, I won't be the one deciding who gets them. That's up to S&S. I *can* promise that I'll do a giveaway at some point. Just not yet, since, yanno, I don't even have them. :)
Thank you guys again for all your excitement about LET THE STORMS BREAK!!!!
