I’m thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for Map of Bones, the sequel to last year’s debut fantasy, The Fire Sermon. It was such a unique read, where everyone is born as a set of twins, one perfect, one with a defect, but their lives are inextricably linked. I’m really excited to get right back into this world with the sequel! So without further ado…the cover!
Wow. It’s such a strong, haunting cover and it matches the first in the series perfectly! What do you guys think of the cover?
About Map of Bones
Release Date: 7 April 2016
Publisher: Harper Voyager
The map of Bones is the second book in a speculative trilogy set in a future where all children are born twins: one perfect and one deformed. A stunning exploration of human sacrifice and joint destiny.
With the Omega resistance nearly decimated, its members dead or in hiding, the Alpha Council continues with its plan for permanently containing the Omegas.
Zach and Cass have defied the odds and survived the civil unrest, even if it has cost the life of Cass’s fellow rebel Kip. But with Zach on the opposing side, and steadily rising through the political ranks of the Alphas, the divide between the twins is growing. Cass is left haunted by visions of the past, while Zach’s cruelty and obsession pushes her to the edge, and threatens to destroy everything she hopes for.
As the country moves closer to all-out civil war, Cass will learn that to change the future she will need to uncover the past. But nothing can prepare her for what she discovers: a deeply buried secret that raises the stakes higher than ever before.
