Cover Lust (14)


From Goodreads:

The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.


Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic in training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws threaten to launch what’s left of humanity into civil war, and she’s not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will discover that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them—connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.


Dan Wells, acclaimed author of I Am Not a Serial Killer, takes readers on a pulse-pounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our humanity is both our greatest liability and our only hope for survival.


Why I love this cover:

To be honest, I hesitated in featuring Partials for this weeks Cover Lust for the fact that it reminds me just a little too much of my own EDEN.  But I just couldn't resist.  I love the contrast in this cover and I have this thing lately for cityscapes for some reason.  I can't wait to get my hands on this book!  

Expected publication: February 28th 2012 by HarperCollins Publishers

LV iPhone 6 plus wallet cases said...

The problem with powerful smartphones is that they can have a side effect such as heat. A "hot-feeling" phone feels uncomfortable to hold. Moreover, the heat can affect the phone's performance. In this area, the iPhone 6 emerges as the "most tolerable" among the three. After placing the three smartphones under a thermal camera, the iPhone 6 is shown as being able to spread the heat at around 31 degrees Celsius. Such heat feels just slightly warm to a human touch.
