Is this not simply AWESOMENESS?!!! How can you not love this cover? The colors, the font, the tree, the positioning of the figures, and that mirrored floor! This is such an intense cover! Imagine picking it up at the bookstore and then flipping to the inside jacket and reading this:
I seriously think the ground just shook with all the people stamping their feet in frustration that this book is not out yet! Ok, maybe that was just me in my own house.
There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends . . . and he’s gone.
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate—until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot—a structure that no one can cross and survive. Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken—or risk everything on the hope of the other side?
So the cover came out exclusively yesterday over at Pub(lishing) Crawl and you can go add to the hoopla over there also. The book is not out until April 16, 2013, but in the meantime, go ahead and add it to your Goodreads page here cause you know you want to read this book!
Congratulations, Erin! We are so ecstatic over your cover and can't wait to get TAKEN into our own hot little hands!!
