Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? While it’s not the only factor in picking up a book, a pretty cover doesn’t hurt. Uncovered is a weekly post where I show some cover love.
Happy Friday! This week I am super excited to showcase the cover for the upcoming novel The Blood Between Us by Zac Brewer. We here at Nite Lite are big fans of Uncle Zac and we love this gorgeous cover. The font is bold but not overpowering. I like that the figures look like they are being blown apart and the patterning in the silhouettes look like shards of glass, making it look like they are shattering. It’s a slighlty mysterious cover and it definitely makes me want to take a look inside. Below is a synopsis of the book.
Growing up, Adrien and his sister, Grace, competed viciously for everything. It wasn’t easy being the adopted sibling, but Adrien tried to get along; it was Grace who didn’t want anything to do with him. When their scientist parents died in a terrible lab fire, there was nothing left to hold them together.
After years apart, Adrien and Grace are now forced to reunite for their senior year, at the elite boarding school where their parents were teachers. Being back around everyone he used to know causes Adrien to examine the person he’s become, even while being back around Grace turns him into someone he doesn’t want to be. But all those questions are cast aside when Adrien starts to suspect that Grace might be stealing their parents’ research and claiming it as her own—or worse, that she had a hand in their deaths. Suddenly, the only questions that matter are whether she’s guilty, and if so, what Adrien is going to do about it.
With his signature mix of snark and darkness, New York Times bestselling author Zac Brewer spins a coming-of-age mystery about the insidious limits of labels and the ties that bind just a little too tightly.
The premise of this story gets to me because I also have a brother I don’t always get along with. I am really interested to see how Grace and Adrien how their relationship evolves. Who else is excited to read this one?
