Hello everyone! I am taking part in a cover reveal for Valiant by Merrie Destefano! When I first heard about this YA science fiction novel, I was intrigued. I always love a good sci-fi story, and I will now be eagerly awaiting the release of this one! And now… *drum roll* for the cover reveal of Valiant!!
Valiant by Merrie Destefano
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Release Date: December 2018
Genre: YA Science Fiction
The Valiant was supposed to save us. Instead, it triggered the end of the world.
Earth is in shambles. Everyone, even the poorest among us, invested in the Valiant’s space mining mission in the hopes we’d be saved from ourselves. But the second the ship leaves Earth’s atmosphere, our fate is sealed. The alien invasion begins. They pour into cities around the world through time portals, possessing humans, forcing us to kill one another.
And for whatever reason, my brother is their number one target.
Now the fate of the world lies in the hands of me, a seventeen-year-old girl, but with the help of my best friend, Justin—who’s suddenly starting to feel like more—maybe if we save my brother, we can save us all…
I love the purple!!! We are most definitely lacking in purple covers, so that is a definite plus! I also love the ombre effect in the background and the starry sky at the top. The dilapidated buildings at the bottom are a little eerie, and they add depth a mystery to the cover. If I saw this online or in a bookstore, I would most definitely be drawn in and want to know more!!
Be sure to add Valiant on Goodreads!
